Fasten Your Seatbelts, The Future is Changing
Cannabis has been intertwined with spiritual practices for multiple millennia. Having helped people recover from illness and find their inner peace, cannabis has proven itself in the past and people are now beginning to re-embrace cannabis.
Cannabis is not new to the world. Two thousand years ago, Patanjali in his book on classical yoga “Yoga Sutras” wrote of using certain herbs to achieve one of the five paths to enlightenment. Experts believe that Patanjali was referring to cannabis. Many millennia ago, before Patanjali’s time, Hindu priests honored the goddess Shiva with cannabis elixirs. During this time, it was also used to provide enlightenment during sacred ceremonies.
Today, cannabis users are raving about the undeniable mental and physical health benefits they get from cannabis, using it in a variety of activities such as yoga, surfing, reading, walking, and meditating. The list doesn’t stop there! Many athletes use cannabis to recover and relax after big events. Fighters, boxers, and weight lifters are using soothing and relaxing effects to calm themselves and reduce pain.
The past is where you learn the lessons, the future is where you apply what you’ve learned. One of the most important things we’ve learned from our past is the healing power of cannabis. As the public becomes more acceptive of cannabis and the stigma vanishes, we expect to see many people and additional activities utilizing the herbs psychoactive effects.
