Where my Weedy Witches at ? Do you wake and bake marijuana with the goddess at dawn? Is holy smoke a literal thing in your life? Then this is the blog post for you. You may be surprised that I’m writing about marijuana, well maybe not if you know me in real life. I’ve enjoyed the medical and recreational benefits of this glorious weed for almost 4 decades now. However I’m of a certain age and for a long time this weed was literally demonized and only now is society as a whole realizing its true benefits. So I figured it was high time, every pun intended, to put together of some of my most favorite things – a weedy witchcraft wondrousness list.

Wonderful Marijuana Magick Book

Hands down this is Phil Farber’s High Magick: A Guide to Cannabis in Ritual & Mysticism. Farber once told me at an event we were both at that “I smoked more weed than anyone he knew.” I’m not surprised and this is a comment I share with pride. The book is a treasure trove filled with marijuana history, science, use with meditation, workings for ancestors, yoga, divination, and much more.

Marijuana Candle

These weedy candles are fantastic. Just the right thing to light while your getting lit. Bad joke, Can’t promise it won’t happen again. But seriously, one of my friends makes these handmade candles with three wicks and available with gold, copper, and other fancy dustings. You can find them at Mystical Mystic candles. 

Rose Wraps for Rolling

I only tried them recently but these delightful rose wraps have become my new favorite smoking accessory. Sold by Blazy Susan these delicious wraps elevate smoking a spliff to the highest level. These wooden based papers are infused with rose extracts and are completely vegan.

Gemstone Pipes

The first time I saw a gemstone/crystal pipe, I wanted one. Smoking marijuana out of stone pipes is nothing new, but these carved pipes made from amethyst, quartz, fluorite, obsidian, labradorite, and other options is relatively new. I’ve seen health criticisms, so smoke with caution.

Weedy Bucket List Destination

I do a lot of traveling, both for events and for purely pleasure. If I had to choose only one weed inspired destination it would be the Hash, Marihuana & Hemp museum with locations in both Amsterdam and Barcelona. Created in 1987 it has had over 2 million visitors since that time. Focused on cannabis history, education, and archival collections, I was invited as a guest a while ago, and was truly amazed. The collection contains everything but my favorites were both the exhibits dedicated to marijuana in music and entertainment and the spirituality of this sacred herb. Of special interest was the small altar dedicated to Mexican saint Jesus Malverde, a folk hero of both marijuana and money.

I hope you get a chance to enjoy the museum, smoke a little cherry pie for me this 4/20, and as always if you have liked what you see here remember to like, comment, and share !
