Contributor to Cannabis and Spirituality Jeremy Wolff has written (elsewhere), " We are naked before pot, and what we see first is ourselves." Of course that doesn't always happen by any stretch. You can cloud over the vulnerability that cannabis can induce by filling your mind and the external environment with distractions and activity.

But cannabis can indeed pull back the curtain and show us ourselves. That's one of the reasons why a lot of people don't like the plant. It's embarrassing. It's humbling. It knocks the legs out from our habitual stance. It's also an explanation for the paranoia effect. Paranoia is fear rationalized and buttressed by a story about threat. It's essentially the fear of losing our long established personality package—also known as the ego—projected onto "other" as threat.

That's why we describe cannabis as an advanced spiritual medicine. To truly benefit from its spiritual opening capability, we have to be willing to be exposed, to be vulnerable, to be tender-hearted, to be humbled, to let go of control, and to see ourselves honestly and not turn away.

In relaxing with whatever arises, the previously obscured gift of cannabis is revealed. We can learn to quiet the busy mind, breathe, trust, relax, and open. Cannabis is in that way an energy medicine. To really know its capability, we need to learn how to ride that power. The more grounded we are and the more we're already at least somewhat confident in the unconditioned reality that transcends our stories, the more likely we are to understand and benefit from the gift of the sacred herb of antiquity.
