Cannabis is indeed a miracle plant, providing us with fibre, food, fuel, fun, and medicine. For thousands of years, people around the world have found benefits in using marijuana medicinally, recreationally, spiritually, and even magically. Marijuana has been used to honour the divine, communicate with the dead, increase psychic abilities, facilitate dream magic, and more. The magical properties of cannabis touted by humankind are numerous, and there is an infinite variety of marijuana spells, cannabis divination methods, and other types of weed magic that have been invented over the ages. Here are just a few of the many magical uses of marijuana.
Marijuana Love Spells
One of the magical properties of marijuana is that it has a very loving vibration. Marijuana is an aphrodisiac, so simply consuming it can be a love spell in and of itself, with the right intention. If you want to get a little taste of what marijuana sex magic can be like, try enjoying some marijuana with your lover while you imagine a loving energy flooding through your body. Touch one another as you blaze some buds or dab some concentrates, letting your energies mingle and unite. As the passion builds, the ecstatic energy is projected into the wider universe as a mutual goal is envisioned. Marijuana magic can also be used to attract a new love interest into your life. Try carrying a marijuana leaf or a bud in your pocket to help clear the way for romance and make all eyes turn to you. One old folk tradition is to take a handful of hemp seeds into a dark field on Halloween night, then throw the seeds into the wind while uttering an incantation: “Hemp seed, I sow thee; come after me and show me!” Then the seeker would turn around quickly to induce a vision of their future lover.
Marijuana and the Magic of Dreams
Another of the magical properties of marijuana is that it is very useful for dream magic. One way to use marijuana for dream magic is to utilize the plant’s ability to help with problem-solving and gaining new perspectives. Smoke a bowl before you go to sleep, and write down your problem on a piece of paper that you place under your pillow along with a piece of bud. When you wake, try to recount your dreams. Think of your problem and see if you have gained any new insights into a solution. Marijuana is also believed to help facilitate meetings with your loved ones in your dreams. A photo of the person that you wish to dream about is chosen, and marijuana smoke is blown over the photo as a means of invitation to come to visit in the dream world. The photo is then placed beside the bed or beneath the pillow.
Marijuana for Psychic Abilities
Increasing psychic abilities is another of the often mentioned magical properties of marijuana. Some seers believe that consuming marijuana before performing psychic work helps to open the third eye, increasing one’s ability to see into the future. Communing with the living cannabis plant itself is also believed to enhance E.S.P. It’s believed that by working with the plant–either growing it or simply observing it and absorbing its energies–that one’s vibrations are brought more in tune with the astral plane. There are also marijuana talismans that can be used to increase one’s psychic powers. A piece of bud wrapped in a willow leaf and bound together with a purple thread may be carried as a charm to improve one’s sensitivity to energetic vibrations and encourage psychic visions.
More Magical Uses for Marijuana
This is just a small sampling of the many magical properties of marijuana that still thrive in modern pop culture. The energies of the marijuana plant are said to be not only in tune with the realms of dreams, love, and psychic abilities, but also healing, hope, cooperation, happiness, inspiration, lust, and a host of other good qualities. There are people using edibles for offerings and evocations, people drawing symbolic glyphs on transdermal THC patches, and people using cannabis concentrate oils to enhance sex magic. There are conjurers blowing smoke to the winds to invoke the spirits of the dead, and there are witches burning bowls under the moonlight in honour of an ancient goddess. Cannabis magic is limitless, a frontier that is being explored by modern practitioners of the magical arts in imaginative and daring ways. With the variety of strains and products available, not to mention the amazing weed deals you can get these days, the array of possibilities is definitely intriguing. Whether or not you believe in magic in general, the magic of marijuana is a power we all know and love!
