Review: Space Candy
IMAGE.JPG

It’s the time of the year when everything is teeming with life, and like a dandelion, there’s the feeling of being ready to spread one’s seed with each breeze that blows over the body. This time of year asks me to be flexible and ready to move—be it physically through traveling, mentally through setting new career/ legacy goals, or spiritually through marking my annual growth progress as my birthday approaches at the end of the month. It seems I always make a big trip or life decision around this time of year, and like the evolution of the dandelion bloom, it starts from having strong, sturdy, nutritious roots, presenting oneself in environments that will not label me a weed or stifle my growth, and then surrendering to the force greater than myself to carry me farther than my current view allows me to witness.

This past April, Women.Weed.WiFi had a month-long residency at Mount Analogue gallery in Seattle, where we transformed the space into a “Sanctuary of the Modern Divine Feminine” — our #internationalgirlgang interpretation of the Spice World tour bus featuring our collective and individual work surrounding themes of holistic and herbal medixine, ancestral wisdom and healing, and collective organizing. In setting up the exhibit we reached out to so many members of our larger community that provided their energy, resources, crafts, bounty, and magic including Nurturing Roots Farm, The Plant Shop, and Ritual Cannabis!

We’ve been blessed with the magic from Ritual Cannabis since we first got to experience their healthy, happy plants at their outdoor, sungrown garden in Klickitat, WA almost two years ago. The love and attention that goes into these plants is something you can smell, taste, and appreciate when smoking the bud, like the difference in eating pasta sauce from the can versus one made with tomatoes that you’ve seen grown with love and organic sunshine. That shit hits different.

I used this nug of Space Candy in conjunction with a solo Smoke + Stretch session, and instantly felt better after viewing and smelling the big nugs. The body was bright green, had yellow hairs as highlights, and a perfectly fluffy, though not powdery, consistency. The smell was sweet with a hint of a cheesy aftertaste/smell...it was like smelling Goddess pussy :) It crumbled like a dream and was easy to roll up—what I loved was that the smell easily translated into the flavor after lighting the blunt. Sometimes a nug can smell good, but taste mediocre, however since nothing is rushed during the cultivation process at Ritual Cannabis, all the bud has time to fully develop its terpene profile, or its unique chemical signature.

This strain assisted me in many mirror dance parties and also many nights where the rest of my to-do list was abandoned in favor of falling into a sedative sleep or binging something sensory like Chambers on Netflix (spooky horror series featuring native womxn Sivan Alyra Rose). This high made me want to booty pop through all of the moments of discomfort I’ve been experiencing as things and concepts are destroyed in order for something else to exist in its place. Through the relaxing, joyous high I was able to affirm my path and keep my third eye focused on what it is I’ve been manifesting as well as surrender to the cosmic winds like the dandelion in spring.

Mystic Marijuana: Full Supermoon in Libra

Unthawing is a great and common description used to comprehend spring equinox. Our subconscious is warming up to the idea of being playful, entering a new body, getting ready to conquer another pilgrimage. The body takes an ample number of days to reach its peak fortitude. Time always adds intensity, especially going through Libra, Aries, and into Taurus energies. The conversations between the associated planets speeds up our infatuation for a vitalized future. This infatuation reveals a new burst of self-confidence underneath the thawed ice of winter. Prancing into Aries season, we mist ourselves with an outpour of blessings after a dizziness of confusion. Hardly ever do we hear about success without hearing about the failures along the way. Ain’t shit sweet, unless its bitter first.

Before I suggest an herb that best assists with how to “unthaw”, let’s purify and prepare for the next version of ourselves. We throw our anger and frustrations like heavy stones at the Earth. We give the Earth what doesn’t serve us because we take it for granted. We forget Earth swells up when we’re ripped from it. You’re only granted immunity from your setbacks if you and Earth make an agreement to unthaw together, rather than just confiding or dumping on it. Include Earth’s herbs into your magic.

Mint is the best for “unthawing” your fertile energy, birthing success, and protecting your money. To enhance visions, blend mint and frankincense and burn on charcoal. While the smoke lifts say this spell, repeat lines 8-10 3x.

I am the air.
After many successive pushes 
Sea becomes waves.

I am the seed 
Earth waits for a final push—
Life becomes inebriated 
By my waves. 

I am the influence 
I am the push 
I am the wave

Mystic Marijuana: New Moon in Capricorn Solar Eclipse

To feel your healing skills developing in a palpable way, fill your plate full of colors—Eat the rainbow. After this new moon you’ll be self and cosmically pressured to really set up your future. Before you nourish your dreams, nourishing your body takes place first. This includes the weed that pleases your eyes and nose, since that also enters your body. 

Earth fortifies us with vibrant veggies, fruit, and all shades of greens. Through these fresh produce, the truth pours down our belly. When we eat what Earth provides, we can go back to source—the divine grace hauled by our ancestors, an ongoing fragment of energy. We are morally bound to pick up the natural resources that have been stripped from us, which explains why most of us are homesick for a place of naked divine direction. 2019 suggests we give form to that which has no form, to be guided by divine spirit, starting with the divine spirit flowing out of food.

Everything else not grown from Earth undermines our attempt to grow strong with water and wildlife. Manufactured opinions and meals subdue our visions. The energy we use to express ourselves doesn’t actually come from us, we only lead it.

777 Capsule: The SACRAL
neish sacral.JPG

I use emotion as a guide.
I prescribe sex as a cure.
I view creativity as a lifestyle.


This is SACRAL.


Your second chakra, the sacral, is the headquarters of your emotions and feelings; naturally intertwined with your sexual desires and creativity. For me, the road to healing/balancing this chakra, aka balancing my highly sensitive and overly emotional tendencies, began when I decided to be more creative with designing my life. And since I understand that being creative is just about being open to my own and others' perceptions and perspectives, naturally my sexual desires and my art became reflections of that. And I'm getting better. And my emotions have been well-balanced with logic. And I have an outlet to express them. And what y'all call that again? Living your best life? Yeah, I think that's what they meant.
