What is keif? More importantly, is it easier to produce it using techno, folksy guitar pop, violin rap, or with a chatty Canadian gabbing away?

Does it blend well with kefir?

When I realized there was not a keifpedia I was heartbroken. The two are often found in close proximity, and I suppose a bhang lassi would be pretty nice but I've never had the opportunity myself.

I remember this one time in Pushkar, India, the day after my girlfriend had arrived to meet me, we decided to grab a couple bhang lassies. The dude who ran our guesthouse asked how strong we wanted them, and before I could pipe up, my girlfriend said, "make them as strong as possible". Buddy walks away to the kitchen, and I was like "Really!? O-kay." My partner downed hers in like ten seconds. Again, I was like, "Really!?" Before they kicked in and kicked our asses, we began our walk over to an all-you-can-eat buffet. We filled our plates high, sat down, and then, boom, there it was. Just looking at our plates made us nauseous; it was as if the plates were piled to the ceiling. Then we both looked up and saw a sign that spanned the entire length of the restaurant, which read "Take as much as you like, but not to waste". All we could think about were the local beggars right outside the place. I'm pretty sure one of us attempted to try a bite, but that came right out, much quicker than it went in. We bailed as fast as we could.

I've never understood why bhang products hit you as hard as they do, because the weed they're using looks god awful. Needless to say, it's more like a mushroom trip, than a ganja high, but I guess that's similar to what happens when we bake with it here.

Well, the recipe Meatbomb links to calls for half an ounce of cannabis, and seems to produce two or three cups of bhang lassie--at max.

Half an ounce of cannabis. Half an ounce. Even the ditchiest of ditch weed swag will send you into orbit at that quantity.

No, just the title of a book of stories by Paul Bowles. I was heavy into him in college, although I have never been a big fan of Kif.

I believe these people know a bit about kif, as did Brian Jones.
