Cannabis in Medical Practice:A Legal, Historical and Pharmacological Overview of the Therapeutic Use of Marijuana
An exploration of the use of cannabis as a sacrament in spiritual practice • Provides instructions for using marijuana for the spiritual practices of spontaneous movement, ecstatic dance, sitting meditation, and gazing meditation, allowing you to open the body´s energies more fully and get closer to the Divine or your higher self • Includes a new translation of the Five Moral Precepts of Buddhism, adapted to include energetic practices and the judicious use of entheogenic substances as a legitimate support for spiritual growth • Includes access to 9 audio meditations With the end of marijuana prohibition on the horizon, people are now openly seeking a spiritual path that embraces the benefits of cannabis. Drawing upon his decades of experience as a teacher of Buddhism, breathing, yoga, and embodied spirituality, Will Johnson examines Eastern spiritual perspectives on marijuana and offers specific guidelines and exercises for integrating cannabis into spiritual practice. The author explains how the great Hindu god Shiva enjoyed consuming bhang, a marijuana mixture that would cause his body to make spontaneous movements. From these cannabis-inspired movements, Shiva brought the body-focused practices of dance and yoga to the world. Examining the spiritual path of Shiva, including the Sadhu tradition, Johnson provides specific instructions and protocols for using marijuana as a sacrament as Shiva did. He explores how to embrace cannabis for the practices of spontaneous movement, ecstatic dance, sitting meditation, and gazing meditation. He reveals how the ecstatic surrender to the feeling energies of the body in these practices is enhanced through the ingestion of Shiva´s herb, allowing you to open the body´s energies more fully and get closer to the Divine or your higher self. Exploring the Buddhist practices of calming the mind and grounding yourself in sensory awareness, Johnson shows that, while traditional Buddhist teachings forbid the use of intoxicating substances, Buddhists who use cannabis are not committing a cardinal sin--in following our dharma, we must embrace what best supports our spiritual practice. He concludes with a new translation of the Five Moral Precepts of Buddhism--what he calls the Five Precepts of Embodied Responsibility--adapted to include energetic practices using breath, interaction with the energies of nature, sacred sex, and the judicious use of entheogenic substances, such as cannabis, as legitimate support for spiritual growth.

I have been obsessed with hydroponic cannabis plants since I first came across them seven years ago. I immediately knew this is the king of all cannabis by far. Since then I have tried and tested various ways to grow them. Not each try ended in success, but when I did succeed, I realized how easy it is to grow them if only one knows the tricks and tips. Here in this book I share my proven methods for you to try. Hydroponics is the term which means ´´water working´´. The practice of growing marijuana with hydroponics is just like the growing of plants in highly oxygenated water or in nutrient enriched liquid. There are many types of hydroponic approaches that are suitable for indoor growing of marijuana. Hydroponics has the ability to grow crops much higher than the traditional yields, particularly in those areas where the soil cannot support crops. The growth rate of marijuana becomes double when the hydroponics method is used. The plants will grow much healthier and faster in the hydroponic system as compared to the traditional soil-based method. This book comprises the detailed explanation of the steps, tools, and setups required for growing hydroponic cannabis. The book is divided into seven sections; each section contains detailed information about the hydroponics process. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Randal Schaffer.

Here is the audio edition of the hilarious and thought-provoking new travel book from the best-selling author of Extra Virgin. Aiming to track down a small oasis town deep in the Sahara, some of whose generous inhabitants came to her rescue on a black day in her adolescence, Annie Hawes leaves her home in the olive groves of Italy and sets off along the south coast of the Mediterranean. Travelling through Morocco and Algeria, she eats pigeon pie with a family of cannabis farmers, and learns about the habits of djinns; she encounters citizens whose protest against the tyrannical King Hassan takes the form of attaching colanders to their television aerials - a practice he soon outlaws - and comes across a stone-age method of making olive-oil, still going strong. She allows a ten-year-old to lead her into the fundamentalist strongholds of the suburbs of Algiers - where she makes a good friend. Plunging southwards, regardless, into the desert, she at last shares a lunch of salt-cured Saharan haggis with her old friends, in a green and pleasant palm grove perfumed by flowering henna - once, it seems, the favourite scent of the Prophet Mohammed. She discovers at journey´s end that life in a date-farming oasis, haunting though its songs may be, is not so simple and uncomplicated as she has imagined. Annie Hawes has legions of fans. Her writing has the well-built flow of fiction and the self-effacing honesty of a journal. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Saskia Wickham.
