Berlin’s metro network is advertising edible hemp tickets during the Christmas season. The day ticket sold by the BVG is valid for local public transport in the German capital. It consists of edible paper sprinkled with a few drops of hemp oil.
The tickets made from edible paper sprinkled with “no more than three drops” of hemp oil, which cost €8.80 ($9.95) each.
Last-minute gift shopping, desperate looking for a parking space and the preschool class playing the recorder crookedly on the Alex – Berlin is anything but contemplative in the run-up to Christmas. With all the stress, it is advisable to just take a train and let yourself be relaxed, using BVG public transport, for example. So that Berliners can now travel to Christmas even more relaxed, the BVG and VAAY have issued a ticket with which the stress and anger can be eaten quickly: the hemp ticket – the first ticket that not only brings people home, but maybe also down – consists of conventional edible paper, which is drizzled with a fine layer of hemp oil, and can be easily consumed after the journey. The contained hemp oil, which was supplied by the Berlin brand VAAY, is said to have a calming and relaxing effect. The oil extracted from the seeds of the plant is not only 100 percent natural, but also completely legal.
The ticket is valid on all underground trains, trams, buses and ferries of the BVG.
