Ganja Yoga: the new trend of the mindfulness industry


Yogis could easily argue on the compatibility of the practice of yoga with smoking pot. How could one of the most conscious practices be aligned with a substance that alters your level of awareness? 


Ganja yoga classes have been booming in countries where cannabis has been legalized. In fact, the same way Cannabis tends to enhance a sunset or a concert, it seems to be also enhancing yoga practice. 


Hearing Dee Dussault, certified yoga teacher, is currently offering Ganja Yoga classes to her students in California. “The two things individually are great, but combined they’re alchemic” she says. Some researches have shown that ganja yoga has been practiced in ancient India, most specifically by the cults ritualistically consumed cannabis in worship ceremonies. 


Dee wrote a book called Ganja Yoga in which she writes that both yoga and weed, “bring a shift in consciousness that allows one to become more open to psychological, emotional, and energy states that aren’t usually operational in the grind of daily life.”


Ganja Yoga seems to offer a wide variety of benefits: 




Yoga and cannabis both activate the parasympathetic nervous system which is the part of the brain that regulates the body’s ‘rest & digest’ mode as opposed to the ‘fight or flight’ mode associated with stress and worry. Yoga and cannabis can therefore deepen your relaxation. 


  • HEALTH: 


Both cannabis and yoga are known to reduce stress, lowering blood pressure, reducing chronic pain and inflammation, and aiding sleep. This combo could easily become a new therapeutic tool of modern medicine. 


  • SPEED:


There are tons of types of yoga, from fast-paced one like Vinyasa or Ashtanga to slow-paced ones like Yin Yoga. Practicing yoga while using cannabis invites you to slow your pace. In fact, the practice becomes more intuitive and creative. Dussault’s students generally use an uplifting sativa-based marijuana for the asana part of the class. The brain demands for the postures to be held longer. 


  • SENSES: 


Both yoga and cannabis enhance your senses. Everything feels exaggerated, from the music to the silence, to the sensation of your hands and feet on the mat, to the muscles stretches, the light in the room… Yogis tend to feel more connected with their body and with their environment while practicing Ganja Yoga. 




Dussault’s students use an indica-dominant strain to enter into a more mellow and meditate state. The meditation is usually practiced in savasana. Students seem to be more relaxed, more connected, and somehow healed. The sensation of savasana is almost ecstatic. 


Should you practice Ganja Yoga? Well, as anything in life, it’s up to you. The practice seems to be interesting to try out. Generally, the benefits of Ganja Yoga seem to be enhanced when students practice occasionally, alone or in small groups.

Bitcoin first appeared on the market in 2009. Since then there was a steady movement of internet shoppers towards this novel monetary tool. In the first months of 2021 alone Bitcoin value rose more than 50%. In this short article we will try to explain the secrets behind the Bitcoins success and why it should be used as a payment option for CBD products.

Bitcoin is one of the safest possibilities nowadays to purchase online. Since it is not coming from your bank account and is not related to it, one doesn´t expose his bank details. Paying by credit or debit cards, on the other hand, inevitably makes the undesired connection to the payee´s bank and therefore exposes the account to online dangers and hackers. Many websites lack even the basic security algorithms, a fact which can make the hacker´s job much easier. In these circumstances the role of Bitcoin is indispensable.


Besides being safe is also easy to obtain. Different paths are available to do it:

  • It can be bought with real currency.
  • One can choose to receive payment in Bitcoins only while selling or as a payment for some services like blog writing.
  • It can be ¨mined¨ by technologically inclined users with costly equipment.


Why Bitcoin went up in value so fast recently?  People finally realized the potential in this payment tool. As more and more individuals are willing and ready to give merchandise or real currency for bitcoin its importance as a mean of exchange is on the rise. The discretion is another benefit of this powerful tool – the buyer identity is not recorded by banks or governments. What makes it perfect for buying products which are still unduly stigmatized, products like CBD. Legal Cannabis related industry is booming but powerful regulatory actors embodied by different government agencies and financial actors like banks choose to apply conservative attitude in relation to CBD. The producers and customers alike suffer from the consequences. We at Plantoflife have also experienced the difficulty to obtain credit card services from the financial sector.

Since many customers don´t want even their family members to know about their CBD use, they might prefer not to see the payment for the products on their bank account´s statements. Bitcoin provides a perfect solution.


We in PLANTOFLIFE are strong believers in Bitcoin´s important role in online buying experience and urge everyone to join us. Convert your Bitcoin to CBD with us.
