I have smoke cannabis before, it leaves me feeling a deep connection to the spirit world and the Earth, but I feel drained after wards.
I guess I am just curious how a pipe is implemented in ceremony.
Peace and Love,

First let me explain cannabis to you. This was a sacred ceremonial herb for ages, until the us government took it away from the people. I am trying to instill it back into sacred ceremony this year and it's part of my agenda, which I am working on right now. Pine Ridge is growing hemp on the Reservation (rez), but the whole benefits of marijuana has been eliminated by the peoples knowing. It is a sacred heart medicine that heals infections of the heart sack and so much more.
Cannabis has been quite the industry. This past month, there has been a television show in California regarding the whole industry. It is timing of all things. Here in California, as other states, you can use cannabis for medical use. But this is not access for all the peoples. And further more it's very expensive. We, Holiness David and I can't afford it, nor can people who really need it. This is a huge problem for the people and for governments who spend millions of dollars trying to control a medicine, that was in the pharmacological (PDR-physcians desk reference or Pharmacopoeia) books until 1947. It's all about money and control of the chemical companies. It's probably the only drug that hasn't killed anyone. It used to be in everyone's medicine cabinet before 1947.
The problem with strains of cannabis is that they simply vary so much with cross breeding and so forth. But the simplest and most easy way to understand it is, there are two varieties: Sativa (for the head, makes you busy) and Indica (for the body, makes you lazy). I only use 100% Sativa at all times. Holiness David uses both strains. I have used with others strains that can knock you out, and put you straight to bed. This can be useful for those who cannot sleep, because they are not doing fire ceremonies, and just using pipes and not following sacred rites, the daily blessings.
Sativa: plants have less chlorophyll than the Indica counter part. It has a higher THC content to cannabinoid (CBD) ratio and offers a much more energetic type of mood. Sativa is used most commonly to elevate a depressed mood. Generally speaking the Sativa plant is the taller and lankier variety, reaching heights over 5-6 meters. It is characterized by narrow serrated leaves and loose spear like flower clusters that can be extremely resinous. Primary the effect of the Sativas are on the mind and emotions. In this regard, they tend to be more stimulating, uplifting, energizing, and creativity enhancing. These benefits can be particularly helpful for the psychological component of many illnesses. Sativas are generally better for day time use.
Benefits associated with Sativa strand: reduces depression, relieves headaches and migraines, energizes and stimulates, reduces pain (awareness), increases focus and creativity, reduces nausea, stimulates appetite.
Indica: has a higher CBD content to THC ratio and induces a more relaxing mood. This is a treatment for anxiety, pain, tremors and many more applications. Indica is most commonly used to induce appetite. Indica plants are normally shorter and stockier plants, reaching 1-2 meters in height and have wide deeply serrated leaves. And a compact and dense flower cluster. The effects of Indicas are predominately physical although the relief of certain physical symptoms can have an emotional result as well. These effects can be characterized as relaxing, sedating and pain reducing. Indicas are generally best for later in the day or before bed.
Benefits associated with Indica strand: Reduces pain (you are down, the couch sydrome), relaxes pain, relaxes muscles, relieves spasms, reduces inflammation, assist in sleep, reduces anxiety and stress, reduces nausea, stimulates appetite (big time, beware, the so called munchies), relieves headaches and migraines (due to neck and spinal muscle spasms), reduces pain inside the eye, anti-convulsing agent, reduces seizure frequency.
However many of today's strains have been cross-bred between the two offering the benefits of both strains while reducing the lesser desired effect of the other. Please ask professional staffs about what may best help your condition. I say, just experiment, because it's so different from person to person as well as who grows and who offers the plant to your benefit and distribution. Please not there are benefits and safe use, which I can write about if you feel you need to understand more. Important note, those receiving digitalis other cardiac medication should only use cannabis under careful medical supervision, and this is because they are both heart medications. Using cannabis is a better treatment along with proper organic diet.
You want to help? Please let me know, I need people willing to fight for this campaign as a religious act for the whole of the world. It's only illegal in the US, due to control (chemical companies, who use police action as big bullies of controlling markets) of money. And it used to be growing all over North America. It's a weed and can grow pretty much anywhere. It is supposed to be part of the Great Give-A-Way. It belongs to all the people as a healing medicine and sacred privilege. Using other types of sacred medicines like peyote has great dangers and loss of total awareness, leading to substance abuse. These types of sacred medicines should only be used once a year of once or twice in a lifetime. Down in South America, there is quite a problem, with this type of abuse among medicine people. Now North America Natives have carried on this tradition since USA has banned their sacred rites from the people, including the rest of us too.
Using cannabis gave you a deep connection to the spirit of the earth, because it represents the heart and it's soul body. It is a green grass which represents the home of paradise (brotherly love of the embrace of giving, the hug) and when used with the pipe (sisterly love of the embrace of receiving, the voice), has a divine spiritual meaning. Using a proper strain of cannabis will assist you personally. Holiness David Running Eagle and I, White Buffalo Calf Woman, both starting using the pipe at very young ages, naturally not understanding it's full benefits, rather trusting our souls. It's use upon our hearts is very important. People this last 50 years have been exposed to dental amalgams, which are total poison to the system, and have made people die as well as have dental, cranial and cellular death to the cells, giving them infections in the hearts and heart attacks. Many people are bed ridden or in wheel chairs due to this type of exposure of metal toxicity. And in California it is now outlawed. The whole of Rome Civilization died due to mercury and lead poisoning. We need small amounts to survive, but abuse of any substance is abuse, even Cannabis. We must learn to respect all things as spiritual and having a place within the celestial divine.

Okay now onto Ceremonial use of the Sacred Pipe.
The heart is the vehicle of our souls, that live inside our flesh. The soul is the blue road and the flesh is the red road, and when we cross the two we are the walking talking (wakan tankan or spiritual being) rising sun. This is what it means to be Lakota. These people are the heart of the world, all of Mother Earth, because they are the embrace of this perfection, the dream world of paradise upon the rolling hills. And Lakota is the Dream. Here the flesh body (hide, lightness, earth) is the sacred four directions (buffalo home) and it houses the soul body (dream birth, darkness, heaven), the heart.
Once you become the rising sun, your sacred dream is born. And this is what the Heavenly name is brought to us is for, to know our mission in life. The sacred pipe is to bring all rites into our lives. To validate a purpose to all things spiritual, our souls that flow, inside the sacred know. The pipe is used to confirm that ceremony is part of our lives.
Traditionally when you light a pipe, it is said to use a burning coal rather than an open fire, because it represents a continuous fire, circle of life, rather than a beginning of light, flame. But as we move on towards the next phase of evolution we understand that the whole of parts is sacred and holy, and all things are spiritual and heavenly celestial origins. The fire ceremony is complete when the pipe is used, because it represents the circle of life. The Native American pipe has a red stone, which is the embodiment of the law of love, the bowl of creation, the heavenly divine. The pipe stem is made from wood, which represents the law of love, that binds light (earth) and dark (heaven). This is the sacred tree of life.
The tree has roots that grow in many directions seeking water for life, Mother Earth. The tree has leaves that grow in many directions seeking light for life, Father Sky. What lies between is the trunk, which represents the binding factor, the law of love. The tree has circles in the trunk representing the ages or years of life, the journey of our lives. The medical/spiritual symbol often used is the snake going around the tree trunk, signifying the law of love. The snake is the embrace of the rolling hills, the waves of light, upon which we journey. Our soul travels upon these light waves (buffalo home of the sacred four directions or tools of light). The stars of heaven, like ourselves (complete four directions shining, the whitey), a star that lives it's dream, has existence only because of dark space (grandmother space, the embrace of all molecules, the spider who weaves our destiny). This heavenly space flows around the stars, like dark space flows around and within us all. It is the wind that blows, the snake knows law of love. The tree of life, represents a life journey (circle of a whole cycle) and waves (upon where we flows the winds of time). These are the uniting factors that bind us all together. The soul (blue/black) greets the flesh (red) and the dream finds the rest, the rising star is born (sun, yellow), to shine like a star when it's grown (white). The tree of life is the stem of the pipe, that keeps us united in law of love. This whole process of changing is called evolution, and can only journey with the purification process.
The bowl is heavenly law of love. The stem is the cycle of which we journey. The fire is the purification of light. The smoke rises and is the purification of dark, water (steam clouds, sublimation, or perfection stream, the crystalline stone river). Here we bring the pipe on a sacred journey of life, the united (body), the uniting (way), the roads of transformation (path) and the purification process of our realms (faith, trust and love). The pipe is sacred, to bring a ceremony to completion and to validate the perfect of the heavenly divine.
It is important, because the violet person is born to be a pipe keeper, one who brings the darkness to the lightness. He (youngest sun in the house of God) assists the world to know their own perfection, the soul that resides inside the hide (buffalo home, the tools of light of the sacred rainbow clan). He is the gatekeeper to Holiness, the gate into paradise, where heavenly knowledge begins to walk the way of a dream, the rising sun within. Also, as the Voice of God and Army, can stand the ground, to make his position be known. But the most important thing about being a Violet person is Magick. This the transformation of faith, to become spiritual when in a time, so many don't know their way into heavenly knowledge of the soul. You also happen to be Dakota in your Flesh body, no matter how small, it flows in your cells knowledge helping you seek the path of the blowing wind. This is the to an fro, going back and forth between realms of heaven and earth, the path of the embracing snake. This embrace brings law of love. We unite our broken hearts first, then we speak our words. This law is what unites our voices to be Oneness of God.
Sow my Kevin Buffalo Magic Rumble Roar Dakota Brother, we implement a pipe in a ceremony to bring law and order to our world. To bring fire and water of purification to our world. To live a holy and spiritual life to our world. And to unite what was broken into the path of the divine. We walk along the Red Road, where law of love is the factor to greatness, within us all.
