There is a good reason why music and cannabis have gone hand in hand for many decades in pop culture and possibly even for centuries beforehand. It is well known that cannabis can help unlock the empathy and creativity that are often hidden inside of our minds and souls and most people find that when they listen to music after smoking a little weed they are able to enjoy and experience the sensations it provides on a much deeper and more intimate, mind and soul expanding level.
If you have some spare time on your hands and some top quality craft Canadian cannabis available to you it can be hard to beat the experience of kicking back to enjoy some of your favourite albums. No matter what type of music you personally enjoy there is certain to be an enhanced experience waiting for you when you smoke weed and listen to music. Discover for yourself why stoners the world over have always sworn by the fact that listening to great tunes is one of the best things to do while high.
It might be an excellent time to invest in or expand your personal record collection. We all have music at our fingertips at all times now on our smartphones and smart speaker systems and in our vehicles but when was the last time you really sat still and truly listened to a great album? Sitting back and soaking in the vibes, the mood and the artistry of a great album has almost no parallel in human experience. No matter how familiar you are with a piece of music if you are stoned and bored you are certain to find new depths and meaning in whatever you choose to listen to.
When you are stoned you are also more open and receptive to new experiences and it can sometimes be easier to comprehend the artistic intention behind something that seemed messy, obscure or even meaningless before. Seize the opportunity to step out of your comfort zone and try to listen to and experience something totally new!
