Happy Marijuanikkah! Cannabis is Kosher

by | 4th, November 2016

Good news for you frumer yidden who like a toke on Shabbos. Cannabis is kosher. The bad news is, of course, that because everything made kosher is more expensive than the non-kosher strain, your Friday night joint will set you back a tidy sum.

But never mind the cost. Rejoice!

The Israel National News say Israeli clerics Rabbi Kanievksy and Rabbi Yitzchak Zilberstein say weed has a “healing smell” and blessed the leaves. In January 2016, a body called the Orthodox Union certified medicinal marijuana as kosher.

Rabbi Efraim Zalmanovich, an orthodox rabbi of some reputation, has issued a religious ruling sanctifying the use of marijuana. The rabbi’s ruling clarifies an opinion by Rabbi Hagai Bar Giora, of the Israeli chief rabbinate, who in March 2013 told reporters, “If you smoke it, there is no problem whatsoever.”

No problem.
