Something in the Beer!?! Last night I went to a local 'Beer Fest' where vendors were promoting their products. Of course I helped myself to a healthy portion of the libations that were offered. While trying one of the brews I was having a conversation with a friend of mine who is a distributor for a small brewing company that makes a fine beer BTW. On his table they had spread out some freshly dried hops for people to inspect. Upon his prompting, I squeezed one of the 'flowers' and smelled it. The petals were sticky and the aroma was fantastic. I commented to him how it smelled like another plant that people like to imbibe and then he proceeds to tell me that hops are in the family as this other plant! :surprised He also tells me that apparently hops contains a small amount of THC(>2%). Of course being somewhat skeptical, I looked it up and according to wikipedia hops belongs to the family: Cannabaceae! Even though I have not found evidence that hops contains THC, it really got me thinking that perhaps it does considering that it is in the same family a cannabis. Perhaps this explains why I get hungry when I have a beer!?! :rofl: So what do you guys think about this little factoid I discovered last night? If it does contain the dreaded devil chemical, should it be outlawed??? What does that say about beer drinkers?
