The cannabis plant is thought to have originated in the vast steppes of central Asia. And there is no short supply in Kyrgyzstan. Look out, along the road, for mounds of black, sandy rock and you're likely to find them growing. Dust off the dust, dry the buds in the sun (or pop them in your pot for 30 seconds) and you're good to go – a great addition to stargazing nights and campfire jams.
