Waking up I was broke, scanning the fridge I had leftover polenta. The only thing I could find to flavor it was thyme. It was dried out but still great so I used it. Anyways breakfast was delicious but then I wondered what was in thyme. So thyme contains Thymol, which is GABAergic and relaxes the trachea. Sounds like an excellent thing to attempt to smoke right?
So I rang up my raver friend and told him about the plan and he was stoked as usual for anything. He sent me this back.
"The smoke is extremely easy to inhale, feels almost like air and the throat is relaxed and not irritated at all. Calming effects are instant. Respiratory depression effects are noticeable (heart rate and breathing rate were measurably). Coordination is off like being drunk. Giggly and happy for sure, possibly a natural anti-depressant? I'm definitely happier than I was prior. My body feels heavier and I'm prone to laying down and relaxing. My thought processes are undisturbed other than easy to be amused. There's absolutely no question of this being active smoked. Much easier if the fresh thyme is dried out a bit."
And to the idea of smoking kitchen herbs for the fun of it I leave you with this lolcat.
