Mabon is on the horizon and soon we will be rejoicing in the autumn world of pumpkin spice, gloomy nights, leather jackets and oversized sweaters, brilliant shades of red, yellow, and orange, and softly glowing candles.
After the hectic summer, it is the perfect time for reflection, meditation, and finding balance once more. When reaching into your witchy toolbox for balancing or meditation aids, cannabis could be an essential component, should you choose to partake.
We recommend using an indica dominant strain and what better strain than one of the most famous of all? Thanks to her Afghani indica roots, Northern Lights will induce an incredible mind and body experience, a beneficial aid as you take time to reflect on the seeds you have sewn throughout the year thus far and discover a new balance as you move forward into the dark months ahead.
With earthy flavours and a spicy and sweet kick, Northern Lights delivers a nice body high, and for some is a great muscle relaxant. Accompanying your body high will be a sense of comfort and happiness. Use this positive state of mind to reflect on the blessings you’ve had this year and take a moment to give gratitude. Some find Northern Lights to spark creativity, so this is a great time to explore the heartfelt, abstract ideas you have in your mind, create art, or troubleshoot an imbalance in your life to find alignment. Enjoy, witches!
