Can I Light Up on the Way to Enlightenment?

Insights into the Yoga-Cannabis Contradiction Cannabis-friendly yoga is getting as hot as “hot yoga” once was, grabbing press attention across the U.S. However, it’s undeniable that an overwhelming majority of “yogis” are anti-cannabis. This makes some of their alarming condemnations every bit as unsubstantiated and biased as anything Nancy Reagan ever put out, with extra helpings of mumbo jumbo.

Urban Yoga for the HIGH-drated   With a yoga mat curled under my arm, I walked into the lobby of a Downtown LA arts’ district loft building.

The Heart of Humboldt The Heart of Humboldt, also known as THCA, is a bustling medical cannabis dispensary in Arcata, California. The venue itself is fairly small, yet cozy at the same time. They have a broad selection of flowers, all lab tested, some grown on-site and some grown off-site by assuredly vetted vendors. THCA has been around for years. Shoot, I used to shop there back when I was a student at Humboldt State…

Higher Self Yoga

Yoga and cannabis might seem like the new kid on the block, but it turns out it’s nothing new at all. The two have deep roots through the history of India, the birthplace of yoga.

During the 1960s, people like Timothy Leary, Allen Ginsberg, and Ram Dass started…

The strain was named after the then four year old Charlotte Figi, who suffers from Dravet Syndrome, and endured up to 300 grand mal seizures…
