I’m excited for all of this plant #Revolution.
It feels as though we are coming out of a sort of dark space together.
Cannabis and I have been together for 10+ years.
In the beginning the abuse was real, and I often think I’d smoke infinitely less now if I could juice the leaves or consume it in edible form. I have no intentions of leaving it permanently, but this medicine is slowly but surely, like everything else, being #exploited for #capital gain. I exploit it for the fact that it helps me to declutter my process which was build around a #guild dynamic. Sometimes my psychological addiction cycle kicks in when run out, and simply having it again in my possession relaxes me before I even smoke it. As my world is slowly and more steadily surrounded by plans, I hope that you too can find a connection to plant spirit, whatever grows on your window sill or front lawn or roof top will do!
I think it’s time for #shame to be transmuted into something far more valuable. I also think it’s time to make #huge reparations to those incarcerated for sharing a plant. My heart hurts for you as I want to dive into the industry myself. How can we give people back their power? Not just for #cannabis but for all the #plants that have been shamed from our diets replaced by chemically maintained lawns that eventually poison you.

Either way, as I mend with #moderation my relationship with this plant I feel I have to share it. "Although long revered in India as a sacred plant of Shiva, ganja has, as we have seen, significant physical, emotional and spiritual impacts. In its ancient cultural setting, it has for centuries been used by world renouncing sadhus in conjunction with fasts and severe austerities. In such a context, ganja could potentially be of value on the spiritual path, although this author has rarely met a ganja-smoking sadhu who had attained the ultimate goal. Taken out of its cultural context and introduced into a party lifestyle unheard-of in ancient tradition, ganja has become far more problematic." #medicine #sacred #rewild #horticulture #agriculture #girlswhospliff #plantwisdom #love #liverdetox #buddhasofsuburbia
