Cannabis and meditation

 H.W. Hawkins (@WhiteOak) 8 years, 2 months ago

What are your thoughts on combining the tools of meditation and cannabis to reach more peaceful states of mind/ letting go?
Do the two oppose each other (meditation giving you a clearer headspace and cannabis clouding it) or do they work well together?
Would it differ with various meditation types? (Working with natural meditation but not mindfulness, etc)

i smoked weed like it was getting me higher and higher until i realized it was me controlling my breathing and focusing that allowed my energy to flow fully

All kinds of medicine men, saints and other wise-guys (not in an offensive way) are known to use cannabis as a tool for enhancing and intensifying spiritual experiences. For example, the sadhus of India and their use of ‘charas’ (hashish).

@whiteoak, Smoking makes my mind overactive. I wouldn’t try it. I become in a state of more resistance when I smoke. It may just be me

I think its fine most of the time haha but I normally don’t want to meditate when I’m high

I read this somewhere and it makes a lot of sense.

Is marijuana OK from a spiritual point of view?
