There has always been a holy dimension connected to the use of marijuana. Bob Marley resonated with this spiritual perspective when he famously said, “When you smoke the herb, it reveals you to yourself.” And though it might be a stretch of logic to say Judaism or Christianity embraces marijuana as a spiritual element of living, the King James version of Genesis 1:29 has this to say: “And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.”
Holy Roller Revival
Well, the marijuana growers have heard the voice crying out in the wilderness, and they have answered with a new strain, Holy Roller. According to Leafly, Holy Roller is the immaculate conception created by the crossing of Big Sur Holy Weed—a classic California sativa
haze—with Do-Si-Dos, an indica strain. And this divine baby delivers delightful departure from the material world of worries and stresses. Because it is a relatively new strain, estimates of THC content are all over the weed map, ranging from a low of 12% to a whopping 25% concentration.
What is not ambiguous, however, is how pleasurable the high is! With a slightly sativa dominant profile, Holy Roller delivers a biblical bliss, transporting smokers to relaxed and reverent spaces and unlocking creative potentials. A recent review on Wikileaf captures the essence of Holy Roller: “Starts off with a cerebral wave and then melds into a full body/mind combo doggy.” If you are looking for a balanced high that will make you feel simultaneously happy, uplifted, and relaxed, look no further my spiritual sojourner, Holy Roller can move you to heaven, at least for a few hours, anyway.
Now that we’ve got your headspace aligned with the spiritual world, it’s time to fill it with some cosmic tunes. And when it comes to spiritual soundscapes, look no further than the album Karma, by the avant-garde jazz giant, Pharoah Sanders. Featuring only two
extended tracks, Sanders spins a sophisticated, aural tapestry with melodic allusions to A Love Supreme, by John Coltrane. To create this heavenly masterpiece, Sanders assembled some of the best musicians in the jazz universe, including Leon Thomas (vocal, percussion), Julius Watkins (French horn), and James Spaulding (flute).
These gentlemen of jazz help Sanders lift listeners to a higher plane. As one listener opined, “This right here is the most spiritual album I’ve ever heard. Given the feeling that I’m currently experiencing, I would say that it’s not in my fate to ever meet him [Sanders] in this world. It would only be appropriate for me to meet him where his music sends me every time I listen to it.” With Holy Roller opening up the third eye, Karma will wash over you like a gentle wave, part the Red Sea of imagination, and usher you into the promised land.
