Just asking.

My Crimean beek friend has mentioned this several times as a practice in family lore.

I'd be afraid the Varroa would just eat more... and the bees would sit around laughing at each other...

It works best if you pipe in music from the Doors and Grateful Dead.

Maybe some Hindrex and Joplin would really get things going.

Do you mean the same hemp as hemp rope? I have a big coil in my shed.  Don't have any of the other stuff.

LMAO, I knew this was going to be a good read. Stoned bees, I bet they would really reproduce quickly, be easy to manage, make some really interesting comb but they would fly slow and consume more than they store.
But seriously, I have never heard of this method.

Wonder how bees get their medical marijuana cards to address this health issue......................... hehe.  I've never heard of this one either.

Don't know about "buzz"ing bees........... but I do know that our hives stay pretty healthy seeing as we stick to the organic beekeeping as much as possible.  No commercial foundations, no chemicals, no medicines.............. the hives that are fully regressed are the healthiest and most productive.

My colleague visited often in Estonia. I asked why he visit there so often?
- There are so beautifull parks.

Actually he went to look Unkraine girls whose legs started from ears.

You might be on to something here.  This would be a fun way to keep Bee, but I think you might get lost looking at all those pretty Bees.

As a side note consider burning hops? Could possibly help with mite control? ? ?

I think there would be only one problem that I can see. having all those bees knocking on your door in the evening saying "MAN We have the munchies" plus they will be flying at the house light saying " Pretty light dud."  afro

The bees would be to stoned to work and then they would eat all the honey when they got the munchies.  Not to mention fying around slaming into obsticles....
