Learn how delta-8 can help you find your center.

If you’ve ever finished a great session with a mind-blowing strain and come away feeling a bit more connected with yourself and the universe, you aren’t alone. Human beings have been using cannabis to look inward for thousands of years, both for spiritual practices and for wellness reasons. Cannabis and cannabis-derived substances have been used as an aid in religious ceremonies and meditation practices in cultures across the globe, and the tradition continues to this day.

As meditation has found a home in many therapeutic and mindfulness regimens in addition to spiritual practices, more people are meditating than ever before. This fact combined with the expanding legal access and normalization of cannabis has led many to wonder how they might channel the power of the plant to deepen their meditation practice.

The delta-8 specialists at Laughing Buddha are here to help. They are firm believers in the power of natural remedies and mindfulness practices, like meditation. And as a brand that’s invested in the well-being of their customers, they seek to spread awareness about how more accessible, hemp-derived delta-8 THC can both support experienced meditators and help facilitate those who are looking to try meditation for the first time. Both those on a continuing spiritual journey and those looking for a practical way to practice mindfulness and improve wellness will find an ally in Laughing Buddha’s delta-8 cartridges and gummies

To understand how cannabis and hemp can help you take your meditation to the next level, let’s first take a look at how people have historically used the plant to aid in their practice.

A tradition that transcends time

The combination of meditation and cannabis is deeply rooted in historical meditation techniques. The origins of meditation lie in East Asian religious practices, and some cultures in that region have historically used cannabis to aid in the feeling of community and wellness that meditation can induce. The Mahayana Buddhist tradition claims that Gautama Buddha subsisted on one hemp seed a day for six years on his meditative journey, and some Buddhist monks consume cannabis to elevate their mood and still their mind before entering a meditative state. 

The combination of meditation and cannabis is deeply rooted in historical meditation techniques.

In the Hindu faith, cannabis is sacred to the god Shiva, and the Vedas revere the plant for both its medical and spiritual uses. Cannabis is consumed both individually and communally in religious ceremonies, and the tradition proudly continues today. A recent study published in the Journal of Psychiatrists’ Association of Nepal found that 90 percent of Nepalese holy men known as Sadhus are daily consumers of cannabis products. They report that it improves their focus while meditating and also that cannabis can improve general wellness by relieving pain and improving digestion. These aesthetics are not only fond of cannabis themselves but often give cannabis as a religious gift, and some will encourage the consumption of the plant during special festivals and in solo meditative use. 

Find yourself with delta-8

Laughing Buddha’s delta-8 experts firmly believe that the gentle high offered by the cannabinoid is an ideal aid to meditation, no matter if you seek enlightenment or just a way to manage the stresses of everyday life. Compared to traditional delta-9 THC from cannabis, hemp-derived delta-8 is not only more widely available but also creates a high that’s said to be free from the feelings of anxiety and paranoia traditional THC can sometimes produce. This smoother, more mild high can encourage a balanced headspace to help keep your internal scales aligned while deepening a meditation practice.

While meditation began as a religious and spiritual practice, it has found an eager home in the general wellness community. Laughing Buddha knows that their high-quality delta-8 products are a natural fit to enhance wellness and improve mindfulness. The array of products offered by Laughing Buddha slot seamlessly into a daily wellness and meditation routine. These creativity and mindfulness boosters can provide you with the tools you need to take on every challenge with serenity.
