For as long as humans have been consuming cannabis, they have been studying the stars. It’s believed that the Babylonians were the first to develop their own form of horoscopes, featuring the familiar zodiac symbols like the Gemini twins, the Cancer crab, and Pisces fish. Around 2,100 years ago, astrology made its way to the eastern Mediterranean and morphed into the Greek style of mythology, which remains essentially intact to this day. Your sun sign (AKA zodiac sign, astrological sign) is decided by your birthday and may represent your preferences, core personality, sense of self, and how you move through the world. It could also reveal your blind spots and weaknesses.
Could cannabis enlighten one of your sun sign blind spots? Or make someone with a supposedly stubborn sign like Taurus less bullheaded? Let’s explore how cannabis could affect for better or worse the main traits of your astrological sign.
