            We are all familiar with the classic marijuana laced brownies, and cannabis laced butter. The truth is that Cannabis has been used historically in the culinary arts. This page is dedicated to an ancient Japanese spice mix known as Kaori Shichimi. It was widely used to season grilled skewers ( yakitori ).[1] Not only do the flavors of the various ingredients compliment each other, but it's also designed for specific medicinal properties.


It was said to stimulate digestion and promote good health in general.[1] As Hippocrates once said, "Let food by thy medicine, and medicine by thy food." Not a lot of people know how to utilize the flavor of Mary Jane to work synergistically with other spices. On this page, you'll get a glimpse of how it was done throughout history.

Kaori Shichimi[1]

Chimpi ( dried orange peels )
Cannabis seeds and/or flowers
Poppy seeds ( Papaver somniferum, the opium poppy )
Sesame seeds
Aosa ( seaweed )
Guinea pepper
Sansho ( Japanese pepper tree; Scientific name: Zanthaxylum piperitum )

When preparing Kaori Shichimi, Equal parts of the ingredients were combined, ground into a fine powder, and sprinkled over food to taste.[1] Please be aware that using poppy seeds in your meal can lead you to test positive for opiates on a drug test. If you decide to us Kaori Shichimi, please understand that you'll be ingesting very small amounts of opiates.


Poppy seeds also contain melatonin, and are rich in vitamins. Melatonin is made by the body and is required for sleep. Shamanically speaking, they are considered oneirogenic ( dream inducing ). Sesame seeds contain tryptophan, which is the precursor to serotonin. Serotonin is the precursor to melatonin. Knowing all of this, you can begin to get a glimpse of the medicinal potential of this recipe.

Using herbs and spices in cooking adds a tremendous amount of additional health benefits to your meals. If you were to compare the phytochemical and vitamin content of plain rice vs rice that has been seasoned, you would see a dramatic increase in health giving alkaloids. It's my belief that the average American fails to utilize culinary spices and herbs, thus they are deprived of many essential minerals, phytochemicals, and other beneficial compounds. Going gourmet can not only leave you with a much more savory meal, but your body can also get the nutritional requirements that it needs.
