Kapnobatai ("those who walk on/in smoke/clouds") were ancient shamans and descendants of the Scythians as well as the Thracians and Dacians who burned cannabis flowers to induce a state of trance for recreational and spiritual purposes. Fresh green cannabis flower accord blended with a trascendence of royal grade Green Hojari frankincense, citrusy Boswellia Papyrifera frankincense, aged oud wood, galbanum, Afghan pine resin, sacred white copal, green basil tops, kusum, nicotania, green tabac leaf, styrax balsam, and bakhoor incense.
Light-winged Smoke! Icarian bird,
Melting thy pinions in thy upward flight;
Lark without song, and messenger of dawn,
Circling above the hamlets as thy nest;
Or else, departing dream, and shadowy form
Of midnight vision, gathering up thy skirts;
By night star-veiling, and by day
Darkening the light and blotting out the sun;
Go thou, my incense, upward from this hearth,
And ask the gods to pardon this clear flame.
-Henry David Thoreau
