Essential cannabis tarot decks to conjure the high spirit

The cannabis plant has a place in ancient history, from Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners to Curanderas to European folk magic. The latter has been celebrated more recently through the introduction of tarot decks that cater to the cannabis lover.

Everyone interested in this divination method has particular preferences when seeking a deck. Some like the esoteric tarot decks that all consist of 78 cards altogether. The major arcana consists of 22 archetype cards, and the minor arcana splits the rest into four suits using numbers and royalty like a deck of playing cards. There are also oracle cards, which are more freely created and call solely on the reader’s intuition rather than relying on structure from the major and minor arcana.
