Yule Strain Recommendation: Mint Kush

Yule Strain Recommendation: Mint Kush

There is something about Yule and mint that just works. Whether it is the nostalgic flavour of candy canes or that time around December where we transition from pumpkin spice to mint flavoured treats, mint leaves behind a cool delicious sensation that seems to make sense as the flavour of winter and snow. And the more you explore the witchy history of mint, the more it makes perfect sense for it to get matched up with Yule. Mints in general have a long history (and value) for their multi-purpose properties including healing, cleansing, good fortune, and happiness. And for Yule, mint can...

Harnessing the Power of Snow

Every winter I typically retreat into my home and enjoy staying cozy under a warm blanket. Starting this Yule, I'm starting a new tradition. I've vowed to get outside, embrace the cold, and grow my craft. This includes exploring how to harness the power of snow and ice! When we think of water magic, we tend to think of large bodies of water or rain water, however there is much more magic that can be done with winter water magic!  Snow and ice are transformed states of water so they carry all the magical properties that water does including cleansing, purifying, and healing,...

Here are some of our suggestions: Add family photos, heirlooms, or other items of significance, to your autumn altar Visit the gravesite of the deceased, or a place they frequented Wear an item of clothing or jewelry that belonged to the...


Samhain Strain Recommendation: Apple Fritter

Samhain Strain Recommendation: Apple Fritter

There are so many things I love about Samhain season. The changing of the leaves, coming back to the coziness of my hearth, the chance to reconnect with my loved ones and ancestors who are not of this world, and consuming all the delectable foods and drinks that come with the Season of the Witch.  This brings me also to one of my favourite strains for Samhain... Apple Fritter! Her buds produce an incredibly unique smell and flavour that is so good that you might just want to eat them instead of smoking them. Her aromatic notes have a commanding...


Lammas Cannabis Strain Recommendation: Amnesia

Lammas Cannabis Strain Recommendation: Amnesia

Every time around Lammas I get a little giddy.  As a cross-quarter festival, Lammas marks the halfway point between the summer solstice and the fall equinox. Entering the darker half of the year, without fail, I begin to try to cram as much fun in the sun as possible, enjoying time with friends and family as we celebrate the abundance of nature’s bounty, the circle of life, and all that we have. BBQs, feasts, waterside picnics, gardening, and long nature walks are all part of this special and lively time. A lively time needs a lively strain to compliment the energy...
