Lupulin is the glandular powder that is separated from the strobiles of the Humulus lupulus (hops) plant. It has sedative effects on the body and mind and stimulates sleep. This powder is separated by beating or rubbing the strobiles of hops, and then sifting to remove the unwanted vegetation. Roughly 10% of lupulin is obtained from the dried hops. The powder is bright brownish-yellow and become resinous. Lupulin is chemically related to THC.
Lupulin has the same sedative effects as hops but is much stronger due to the refining process used to seperate the powder initially. This concentrate gives a mild high, promotes full body/mind relaxation and eases the nerves which provides a better sleep. It is a sedative belonging to the same category as valerian, skullcap and passion flower.
The powder has also been used as natural medicine for delirium tremens, wakefulness, anxiety and exhaustion.
Lupulin extract is a fine powder and can be utilized in many ways, our favorite though is chilling back with a cup of warm lupulin tea - mix 150 ml of hot water with 1 teaspoon of Lupulin (1/5 tea spoon is more than enough with our 100x strength) adding honey or whatever flavour floats your boat is recommended as although it has a beautiful aroma, its taste can be quite bitter. Stir and let cool for bit while you sink back in your chair and enjoy the the smooth ride you are about to embark on.
