This book has a lot more to do with spirituality and politics than it does with cannabis. I enjoyed the read, but it felt somewhat out of context; like I should have read some of Gaskin’s other works first or been better acquainted with his life. May 31, Moxie rated it liked it. As soon as I learned this book existed, I wanted to read it. Mine happens to be signed by the author. I like reading religious books, and I’ve recently become interested in the religious use of cannabis, partly by way of reading up on Rastafari.
From that perspective, the book is pretty disappointing. The first chapter is phenomenal as, I guess, a statement of belief.
After that, it falls apart a little. It turns out cwnnabis the title is As soon as I learned this book existed, I wanted to read it.
Strphen turns out that the title is something of a misnomer. Gaskin writes at times about the great things that happen when people come together to smoke weed with each other, the “gentle ritual” of it.

Cannabis Spirituality : Stephen Gaskin :
It’s an old hippie telling you why natural childbirth is really the best way to have children, and you should really have a midwife, too. Sometimes it’s interesting reading, and sometimes I just found myself rolling my eyes. It should come as no surprise, then, that Gaskin is a Dead Head who lives in a person commune in Tennessee.
He talks a lot about his commune, which he calls The Farm. In fact, it’s hard to say whether cannabis is the main character in this book, or if it’s spiritualkty The Farm. If I were to recommend this book to anyone, it would be someone who is interested in the cultural legacy of the Dead Heads and other hippies.
Not all of them cut their hair and moved to the suburbs.
If you want to read about the spiritual or religious use of cannabis, though, I would recommend that you look elsewhere. Jun 05, Ant rated it really liked it. I guess I was impressed with the humility this book was written in. There was no preaching or lofty talk. A lot of what he talks about is deep and heavy, but you may miss it if you take it all at face value while you skim.
For those who may understand this, you will find a friend in this book. It’s refreshing to know there are people like him out there as he calls it ‘fighting the good fight’. Jun 01, Pgregory rated it liked it. More of a tract than a book, a longing for the mindset of the s.
