Do Ukrainian People Smoke Marijuana
Do people in Ukraine smoke cannabis? Yes they do, I have met many people in Ukraine who smoke weed. I think most are like Americans were 20 years ago.
If you asked someone back then if they smoke weed the answer would always be no! Then they would go home and smoke weed. It was illegal you never knew who you were talking to. Now that cannabis is legal in many states all of a sudden everyone smokes weed. In Las Vegas where I am from it is completely legal, so guess where everyone comes to smoke? I do not know how much money as an industry it is making but I know it is bringing in millions in taxes every month.
This is how I know so many people in Ukraine smoke cannabis because they are safe with telling me. Almost every young person I asked if they tried it most said yes.
Last September there was a rally in Kiev in support of decriminalizing cannabis. It was very odd that the same young people that told me they thought it was OK, started a riot against the rally supporter. The police were called to break up the riot. It is odd how people act sometimes. I Las Vegas I have many friends and acquaintances, a few years back they were all against marijuana. Now that it is legal all of a sudden it is fine, most people here in America are in support of cannabis.
I was in a city in Ukraine, a young man was the hooka master or whatever he is called. I asked him if he smoked cannabis he said yes I do.
We had a long talk on the subject, he wanted to know everything about how it was in the USA now pot is legal. If it was true you could go into a shop, buy cannabis like you would buy cigarettes? I told him yes as long as you are 21 years old, he that that was so cool. He asked me how much does it cost for 1 ounce of weed in those shops I said about $400. He laughed, said you can buy one once here for about $20. I said no way, he told me I will show you.
He called a friend and in a few minutes, his friend was with us. He said let’s go around back if you want to see it. I did, sure enough, it was weed. The price was a little higher than what I was quoted.
He said it will cost you $30 for an ounce of the good stuff. Could I not believe it did I just hit the lottery? Of course, I did not take it for myself in a foreign country not knowing what the consequences were to have that much cannabis. I gave it to the young guy, he said oh my friends will be so happy we will have a big party. He told me later he never had so much cannabis before. I would rather be safe than sorry, plus I am not such a big pot smoker. I prefer the CBD oils or tincture, it does wonders for sore muscles or headaches.
I do understand the is one city of Ukraine a mayor is trying to open a clinic for CBD treatment. Here is the article explaining all about it.

Ukraine may soon open Europe’s first center for hemp therapy. The industrial variety of Cannabis sativa, the drug-less brother of marijuana, has been used as a traditional source of fiber in Ukraine for ages. Now it may become a center for alternative cancer therapy – if Michel Tereshchenko, the mayor of the provincial city of Hlukhiv gets his way.
In Soviet years, Ukraine made a splash in the hemp industry with its Hemp breeding department at the Institute of Bast Crops in Hlukhiv which opened in 1932 and has been one of the world’s largest centers for developing new hemp varieties, focusing on improving fiber quality, yields, and diminishing the content of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the psychoactive component of Cannabis sativa. In 2009 it created the world’s first and only non-narcotic varieties of hemp, and before that – the first varieties with insignificant amounts of THC.
It’s located in what was once the residence of Mykhailo Tereshchenko, a Ukrainian industrial magnate, and philanthropist who lost everything after the Bolshevik revolution of 1917. Nowadays, his grandson Michel Tereshchenko, who returned from France to his ancestral homeland and landed a victory in Hlukhiv’s mayoral election, is seeking to breathe a second life into Ukrainian hemp. And in Ukraine’s cancer patients. His Facebook post announcing that the center will open in three months, on time for the new harvest of hemp, and will look more like a beauty center than like a hospital, spread like wildfire and has attracted many potential investors – although it is too early to reveal their names, Mr. Tereshchenko says.
The science behind the idea
Although it’s too early to say that cannabis cures cancer, research in that direction is ongoing. Cannabis has been shown to kill cancer cells in the laboratory, and cannabis-derived drugs have been approved to use to relieve side effects of cancer treatment. The secret lies in cannabinoids, active chemicals in cannabis which activates cannabinoid receptors in the body, playing a role in immune system generation and regeneration. The main active cannabinoid in Cannabis is delta-9-THC. Another active cannabinoid is cannabidiol (CBD), which may relieve pain and lower inflammation without causing the “high” of delta-9-THC. Cannabinoids are plentiful in both hemp read full story
I date a few women in Kiev that smoked cannabis, I was always afraid to do it there. One evening a few of her friends came over, all of them smoked weed.
I called them the marijuana girls, they loved the title. It is a simple plant not only does it not cause you harm it actually help many people with chronic problems. I am for the legalization of cannabis all throughout the world. Maybe one day we will see it?
