a little while ago a friend of mine told me that smoking banana leaves could get you high, similar but not exactly like weed. I told him he was full of shit, but he wouldn't drop it. Does anybody know if that is true, or am I right and he is full of shit?

actually people say the same thing about banana peels. they say if you scrape em off then put them in the oven until dry then smoke them that they get you high

i wouldnt doubt it because so many things in this world can have this effect that many people will never know about. but its not something id do.

Oh yeah dude. It will definitly work. You know, there is also this awesome other method - go out and get yourself some poprocks, and dump them in a hollowed out lightbulb, and smoke 'em crack style. You'll get a killer buzz...

No, I'm sorry, I just had to come up with something that would rival that stupid ass "Banannadine" (Bananna Crack) rumor...

No, smoking bananna peels won't work. I heard that smoking the thin rine that is on the penut when you crack the main shell... you know, that red little, thin, filmlike thing? I heard that if you smoke enough of those, you feel something. Once again, I feel this is about as stupid as the Bananna thing...

I agree. I have never heard of anyone selling it, and I think I know why.

<table class="question-table" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="550"><tbody><tr><td class="qa">
</td> <td class="a_text">Nope, though there are persistent reports of people who say you can get high from smoking banana peels (or bananas, or extracted bananas), this is a myth has been around since the late 1960s. There are no psychoactive components in banana peels, despite scientific names such as "banandine" being created to perpetuate the myth. Smoking just about anything is likely to make one feel light-headed, but this is not the same as getting high.

There are a couple of possible sources of this rumor. One suggested source was a prank letter submitted to and published in the Berkeley Barb in March 1967. Donovan's folk classic Mellow Yellow is also cited as an early version of the story. The myth was repeated in the Anarchist Cookbook and has since spread on the web. Regardless of how many places repeat the myth, it is not true.

I think that smoking anything will give people a "higH" like effect, but only because of the large amount of smoke they are inhaling, and getting light headed.

As for bannaas, i'm pretty sure that is just a myth

You cant get high from smoking the leaf alone. in South Africa it is common to smoke Dry rolled banana leaves. it can be purchased from almost any local store.
people use it as an alternative to cigarettes although the taste is very different.

one love
