--come to a culinaristic adventure to the most psychedelic kitchens in the world.
Our lecture today - Active Substances.
Substances belonging to certain cultures that alter the state of mind.
As we are a substantially retarded nation in more than one way, mentioning any other substance than Father Alcohol
often leads to butthurt, crying and police action.
Knowing the risk, the insane chef shall discuss the subject, or the substinence?
Ever feel like intoxication is just filling a natural need, much like hunger, thirst and sexual appetite?
Getting plastered has been a part of every single culture we've visited.
Often the substances used to reach the higher level have been something else than Lord Alcomahol
like a psychoactive plant
chewed leaves of Khat
or a Tandai shake laced with cannabis.
And if a people doesn't know any man-made or natural substances to get their brains upped
dance is often the way to achieve the trance.
The need to get fucked up is one of man's four basic drives.
Whether it's the jungle or the desert, the formula is the same - always!
Khat, Bang, Betel, Psilocybin, Ayahuasca, Coca leaves, Opium, Mescaline, Cava, Datura, Cannabis - even smokes!
When there's a need to get wasted, talk to gods or even just speed up the conversation
every culture has their own way to spin up their noggins.
Or clear them! Which is it? We don't know! We won't glorify, we won't judge - we explore. Think about that for a while.
Dear viewers, this is an amazing thing - we've often said it's a small world, but just now
our old friend, a hardcore troveller... -Hey! It's "Traaavelleerrr..." haven't you learned?
Already a legend... Coco!

"EEEYY COCO SELL US SOME WEED!"
Well... what can I say..? -Even Tupang is ruined!
C'mon, tell us something as an experienced traveller. -Naaaahhhh... I won't talk about no places...
Well, what was there... I spent six months on a lake in Bhutan.. Then the monsoon in Mustang, rained like a meter... Even monsoon babas didn't swim...
Then I spent a few years in Israeeeeel...
Our topic today is Active Substances

We're talking about Active Nutrition, you probably have some experiences from your travels?
-Nooooo, well... When in Rome, y'know, traditions and shit...

Weelll, I took this Datura trip with some babas into the desert or sumthin'...
Datura? That's a scary psychedelic!
Yaaah yaaahh... everyone says you fucking flip out...
I didn't flip out...
"ONLY FOR EXPERIENCED USEEERS..."
Alright, tomato eyes and rest of the brass band! Let's go check out some cartoons!
"Collect wild hemp from the mountains. Clean the cannabis from seeds."
"Take out the flowers and leaves of the Sativa."
"Don't eat them - better high than low!"
"Blend them with herbs and sugar, according to the wanted state of mind and being!"
I ain't doin' this, don't want no pigs on my tail nam sayin'? A strong NO!
This is fully legal, we can't do anything illegal here!
-Put the fucking camera down, man! I ain't doin' this!

Rolling, Tunna? -Focus... and action! -Yeah? -Action!
Welcome to the sacred place! Coco here has promised to make us some of his world famous Space Cakes!
...remember to say that..thing.. -Ah yes!
We WILL NOT use drugs in them, this is perfectly legal Hemp for fibers, such as rope et cetera.
Not even a nanogram of dope in this one! Found in Mad Cook's spice rack!
Next, Coco's world famous Space Cakes! -...yeah... alright..!
Umm, first the hemp, two handfuls, chop them...
When the hemp has been CHOPPED, we put it in about like... 180 g of... metl... melted butter... Like so.
The idea is that... THC is fat-soluble so it... solues... into the butter, y'know?
The drug? -The drug... -So here it doesn't matter?
Coco, you can relax. Look in the camera!
Can I start? So, it's looking good here. Hemp's in the butter, what now?
You mix, the hemp, into 400 grams of flour, 200 grams of sugar, two eggs, and 2 dl of milk produ... MILK.
So that's our dough? -...correct..!
Does this look familiar..?
You had some seasoning too? -Peanuts, figs and tates are.. are added to the.. mix.
Alright! I'll start doing this and... and...
Hey, you can relax, you've done really good, just chill!
...is it okay to puff some smashey..?
Go ahead! Hey, is that a Chillum? -Awww, yeah, yes itttt is...
A real Chillum? -Chillum, Chillum! Hardest clay in the world!
So you use this to meditate with the babas? -Oh yes oh yes.. I only smoke from ma Chul..Chol.. CHILLUM.
Can I see it? -NO,you'll drop it. Some UK clown dropped it once, couldn't smoke for a week, I only use Chillums...
Good tastes... ehehehe...
Alright, filming... and action!
Dough is done, what now, Coco?
Putthe.. put thm... PUT DOUGH IN A PAN. BAKE FOR... twenty...twenty five minutes at about 200 C...
Relax, Coco, no problem, we'll cut this part out. This is what happens in TV productions.
But you had some TV experience, right? -Yeah I was in Antinha... the Anthony Bourdain show...
Oh, which episode, I've seen all of them but don't remember seeing you?
Nooo.. I was.. Umm... in Tibet. -Sure sure. -Most spectacular place on Earth...
Okay... I don't remember that one. -Oh yes, it was me and... Ian Wright. Yeees yeeess...
Usually I make this from Malana cream, best cream in THE WORLD. -Oh yeah, Indian, right?
Their ganja is HOLY and LEGAL... The pigs are runnin' wild and hot...
It's a fiver... just short of five.
We cut this one out, yeah? -Yeah, of course, chill, no problem.
There's our pan, Space Cakes are ready for the oven! -We... we should bless the cakes...
Alright! -In the oven it goes... -In the oven it goes!
Awesome that you're with us, showing us how it's done.
Ze oven is ringing, Space Cakes EJECT - and inspection by the master.
What do you say?
...the aroma is clear and scentful........
Okay! Let's go to the diner!
I'd like tha say hi to ma granny in North Carelia... and my mom in Kiiminki....
Your TV performance went well, very naturally!
I'm always natural.....
Alright, let's dig into the Space Cakes, that are missing the space-like element this time.
Munch, munch, pass, right to left...... -Oh... okay.
Coco, thanks for the interview! Where are you going next?
Well... where the wind takes me, and where my nose is pointing.. Don't you little fuckers follow me, yeah..?
...put that camera away, I'ma hit something....
Dear citizens, Coco has left the building. He's a good example of how getting "in it" is very humane
but on the other hand, also why drugs might... not be for everyone.
All you kiddos, or those who are feeling a bit pregnant, do yourself a favour and stay away from mindfucks.
To all you healthy and responsible adults, the flipped out head gourmand commands -
Learn to know yourself - with or without drugs, in their vicinity, or if the culture demands, by enjoying them!
...is the camera off..? -Yeah..
If you want, I might have somethin' for ya, let's go.. let's go check it out, c'mon......
