This episode of BHA is a 4/20 special! Roll up and put your thinking hats on, because we’re gonna get high as fuck and philosophize a little bit.

Listen to the episode here and find it on Spotify, Apple, Google, or Amazon podcasts!

Starting with the primordial origins of humanity and moving forward, I discuss the evolutionary mechanisms of cannabis and how the chemical structure of the plant has been incorporated into our human biology for thousands and thousands of years now. I also take some time to talk about the ancient history of cannabis and its use in spiritual and religious customs throughout the ancient world, often used as a sacrament relating to the Tree of Life and revered by the alchemists of the east!

I even read excerpts from an essay that the Great Beast himself, Aleister Crowley once wrote, entitled “The Psychology of Hashish.”

Additional topics will also include the modern science relating to cannabis, including neuroscience, psychology, botany, and horticulture.

Then, at the end, we discuss some of the downsides to constant cannabis use! While cannabis is irrefutably considered a medicine again in our society, it can still be abused just like any other medicine and while you cannot overdose, there still can be some potential downsides. It’s important to keep these things in mind!

SMOKE RESPONSIBLY, SMOKE TO GROUND YOURSELF AND SET INTENTIONS, AND SMOKE TO UNDERSTAND YOUR PROBLEMS — NOT RUN AWAY FROM THEM. BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, SMOKE WEED EVERYDAY!

HAPPY 4/20 EVERYONE!
