A step-by-step guide to using cannabis as a psychedelic therapy
• Explains how cannabis can be used to treat trauma and emotional pain, as a profound problem-solving tool, and as a potent catalyst for self-transformation and ongoing healing work
• Shares methods to minimize the unwanted effects, such as intensified anxiety and paranoia, and direct the experience to produce deep physical relaxation and, when needed, elevated healing states
• Details how to blend cannabis strains for specific kinds of psychedelic experiences and how to prepare for your sessions to ensure success
Despite the recent resurgence of interest in the therapeutic potential of psychedelics, Cannabis sativa as a psychedelic therapy has been completely overlooked. Yet, as psychedelic specialist Daniel McQueen reveals, when used skillfully and with intention, cannabis can be used to treat trauma and other mental health concerns just as psilocybin mushrooms and MDMA can. It can also be used as a problem-solving tool and as a potent catalyst for self-actualization and ongoing healing work.
Presenting a step-by-step guide, McQueen explores how to transform cannabis into a reliable and safe psychedelic medicine. Drawing on his years of experience working with clients to release traumas and emotional pain and step into their full potential, he explains the importance of proper dose, set, setting, and intention and details how to prepare for your psychedelic cannabis sessions to ensure success. He shares methods to use cannabis in a specialized and mindful way to minimize unwanted effects, such as intensified anxiety and paranoia, and direct the experience to produce vivid psychedelic states, deep physical relaxation, and healing.
Looking at the unique qualities of di erent cannabis strains, the author explores the art of making a psychedelic cannabis blend, the possibilities and hidden potentials of each strain, and how to blend strains for specific medicine experiences, ranging in similarity to MDMA, psilocybin, and even ayahuasca.
Unveiling new depth to this ancient spiritual and medicinal ally, McQueen shows how consciously using cannabis as a psychedelic can help transform your trauma into resilience and shift your mindset from surviving to thriving.

“Is a highly reliable botanical psychedelic legally available throughout most of the US? The answer is a resounding ‘yes,’ and the details of that answer reside in this book. As with many discoveries in this field, it began with McQueen’s serendipitous discovery of how, with the proper dose, intention, set, and setting, marijuana can produce the same psychedelic effects that occur with ‘classical’ compounds like DMT and psilocybin. This book provides guidance every step of the way: personal preparation, selection of cannabis strains, methods for ‘getting enough,’ managing the experience, and integration. Most highly recommended!”

“Daniel McQueen, the founder of the Center for Medicinal Mindfulness, is a pioneer in the therapeutic uses of cannabis as a psychedelic. Although we don’t usually think of the cannabis plant as a transformational psychedelic, Daniel shares information that shows it to be just as profound and therapeutically effective as ‘classical’ psychedelics, such as psilocybin. Readers will find much wisdom and good information in this book.”
— Dennis McKenna, Ph.D., ethnopharmacologist and coauthor of The Invisible Landscape
“Daniel and his much-needed Medicinal Mindfulness program use cannabis to heighten emotional and spiritual healing and awakening to provide an urgently needed user-support system.
