Cannabis is an entheogen and has its fullest potentials realized when used ceremonially. There are innumerous amounts of benefits in using Cannabis as it consciously connects us within our subconscious, opening up inspiration, insights and creativity. These are available through the subtle (other-times strong) energetic connection with our Chakras, which we become more aware of during Cannabis use.
With our ability to consciously connect with our aura also opens up our aura to vulnerabilities. In Ceremonies there are tools used to clear, protect, and cleanse the auric field. When consumed recreationally, compounded in use with others, increases the cross-contamination of emotional conscious energy from others. Our ancestors used Cannabis in a multitude of different ways from once a year, to continually on a daily basis.
It's important to remember that each time you use Cannabis a "reference point" is made. If you accumulate too many reference points that do not exude creativity it is most likely that Cannabis will become counterproductive. The goal is to use Cannabis appropriately in balance with purpose and intent.
