Smoking hops?

You might be surprised to know that hops are related to cannabis (AKA marijuana).

I've read that you can smoke hops for medicinal purposes. Not to get high because hops do not contain THC. But the female flower of the hop plant contains lupulin which is known to have sedative, anti-anxiety and anti-insomnia properties.

I have not tried this but it would be an interesting experiment.
