    Saffron is deep Orange (Redish), and it's from the Middle East and India.


    In my distant past, Iheard someone saying that Saffron was like marijuana. I just went: "Yeah." I haven't thought of it much since then. After I read your Post, I went over to Erowid and read a little bit about it. Here are a couple quotes about it (I hope it helps):


    Opium and laudanum (a tincture of opium and saffron) are making inroads among would-be Samuel Taylor Coleridges and Elizabeth Barrett Brownings, while at absinthe gatherings artists, writers and just plain partyers are raising illicit tumblers of the potent woodworm - infused liqueur to past devotees like Rimbaud, Wilde and van Gogh. "People are romantically attracted to Victorian-era drugs,"

    effects whatsoever
