Getting High on Easter: How Weed Helps in Lent Meditation

Cannabis and Lent

Practising Catholics know how significant the Lenten Season is. Even if you are not an active believer, or you simply celebrate Easter because of culture, many people are preparing for this occasion. If you are a cannabis enthusiast and you want to participate in the tradition, read on to know how you can use the herb for your practice:

The Role of Cannabis in Spirituality Throughout the Decades

If you think that using weed for spiritual practices is some New Age schmuck, you might want to reconsider. The use of this plant in meditation has been prominent throughout human history. Ancient beliefs such as Vedic religions, Zen Buddhism and Rastafari belief has been using this herb for their spiritual traditions. In fact, holy texts name cannabis as one of the five sacred plants in Vedism.

What’s better is that there are theories that Jesus, the main star of the Lenten Season, had used this plant to perform miracles. Remember the anointing oil he used to heal the ill and diseased? It is extracted from a plant called kaneh-bosm or keneh bosem in Aramaic. Historians theorize that this herb is actually what we now know as cannabis.

Why Cannabis is a Great Meditation Aid

So, if weed was used by various ancient traditions as a way to practice their spirituality, it also follows that it can also be used today for our Lenten meditation, right? It is true that the historical use of the plant shows that it can indeed be used to meditate during Lent. After all, prayer is a form of meditation. However, it is also important to know how exactly this plant aids in your personal meditation during this sacred season. Here’s what you need to know:

Cannabidiol Helps You Focus

Cannabis contains various chemical compounds that make it that wonderful plant we have come to know and love. One of these compounds is cannabidiol (CBD), which gives the herb its medical properties. When you consume a strain or product that is rich in CBD, you can expect to be stimulated, thus enhancing your ability to focus. Used in meditations, this boost in focus helps you get into the right state of mind to ruminate and get in touch with your spirituality.

It Induces Relaxation

While CBD is the cannabinoid responsible for stimulating your mind and improving your focus, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the one in charge of the sedative and psychoactive effects of the plant. By consuming a strain or product that contains both of these compounds, you can get into a relaxed, yet concentrated state of body and mind that makes it easier to focus on your breathing, clearing your thoughts and connecting with your religious or spiritual self.

It Facilitates Self-Awareness

As it can help you get in touch with your inner-self, this plant certainly has the ability to make you more self-aware. This way, you can reflect better on the reason for the season and how it connects with yourself, your life and your everyday practice. You can think about the things that make you who you are and its relation to your spiritual beliefs. Because of this awareness, you can make small and big changes that can surely improve your way of living and wellbeing.

You see, meditation is not only a spiritual process, but is also a part of our everyday life. You do meditations every time you practice yoga, breathing exercises and even just by taking a break in silence. By using cannabis to aid in your everyday practice, you can make the process much more efficient and effective, whilst reaping the advantages the plant has to offer.
