    The hallucinogenic honey of the giant Himalayan bees

    In the harsh wilderness of the Himalayan Mountains live the Himalayan Cliff Bees; the world's largest honey bees. They can grow up to three centimeters in length and produce a red colored honey unlike any other. The people of China and Nepal tout the benefits of this honey that not only helps with diabetes, hypertension, and sexual performance but also has power psychoactive properties.

    Being high up in the Himalayas, getting to the honey is no easy feat. However, there is a tribe of Gurungun people known as the honey hunters who brave the expedition at least twice a year and are able to make a living off of the powerful nectar.

    Pretty tough to find info on the effects. Doesn't seem to be listed in the MSDS.
