As I mentioned in my article: "The Renaissance of an Ancient Plant Spirit Ally" (https://grahamhancock.com/grays1/), those who really understand the power and potential of cannabis, in particular as a spiritual ally, consider it an advanced spiritual medicine. Despite the casual way the plant is so often regarded, set and setting are very important, just as they are with the so-called major entheogens.

Poster Boy expressed concern about overdosing with orally ingested cannabis. This is indeed an issue of concern. It's important to note that even inhaled cannabis can also generate overwhelming effects. But pot taken orally generally has a much higher ceiling and much longer duration. The literature is full of stories about distressing experiences.

There are secrets in these leaves. Several of the contributors to the book Cannabis and Spirituality go into some detail about the importance of learning how to work with the power of the medicine. Frequency of use, dosage, strains, set (all you bring to the encounter) and setting all factor into it. One of the repeated themes in the book is expressed as "less is more." It's not about getting totally blasted or doing it all the time.

Just as there were serious acid (LSD) casualties in the 1960s and 70s from failure to consider set and setting, we now find similar problems with high dose cannabis experiences. Our intention is to counteract that kind of ignorance with clear, responsible information about effective use of the sacred herb.
