That is probably the question running through your head right about now. We don’t blame you. After all, Thai sticks are something that’s not only unique to Thailand, but our initial knowledge of them mostly extends to the Vietnam war era, and that’s pretty much it, thanks to anti-weed laws being passed on both sides.
Before we get into the history of Thai sticks, here’s what they pretty much are: weed buds on a stick, wrapped in bamboo and tied with hemp string, or “rasta hair” as it’s called in Thailand. Yes, that’s it, folks. It essentially looks like a great big blunt on a stick. We say “blunt,” because the finished product looks almost cigar like, it’s that thick, due to the buds just being stuck on the stick, shish kebab style.
