The connection between Nature and Cannabis is known to many of us who regularly practice our spirituality in Nature with a bud or two in our pocket.
Sit on a hot granite rock next to a flowing stream and listen to the sound of the water. Throw in some waterfalls and a bit of shade from old oak trees. The only sign of the modern era would be if you happened to look up and see a passing jet. Otherwise, you’re in Eden. Note the sound of wind through the leaves, and check out the frog that is camouflaged by the rock where he resides.
Just one puff from a glass pipette – that’s our preferred way of smoking “herb” – and you are no longer separated from Nature. You are part of it. Add a bottle of wine shared among those present, and it’s almost like a mushroom trip. Add to that some fun-filled moments like a rousing game of “Rock Head” – friends each take a turn stacking flat rocks on top of each other until the tower falls – and you’re literally a child again.
The clarity of this precious time in the mountains or the desert or the seaside – any pristine wilderness away from the grind of civilization – resets your mind and spirit to “Default” – calm, appreciative, loving.
As they say, If not you, then who? And if not now, then when?
