World’s First Cannabis Church in the USA

CBD Oil info

Back in 2017, the news spread around the world that in the US state of Colorado, the city of Denver, a church for marijuana lovers was opened – the first institution that supports the use of cannabis to expand consciousness and comprehend life. Those gathered here can smoke a joint they brought with them and find answers to their burning questions in the circle of like-minded people.

Marijuana is now in the church

The founder of the institution is Lee Molloy, who is called the representative of the International Cannabis Church. He calls the pilgrims who come here elevationist, from the word “elevat” – “raise”. There is a deep meaning to this name – Lee believes that cannabis helps people develop to the best version of themselves.

It will not be easy to list all the features of this truly unusual place. Here are the main ones:

  • Unlike the Rastafarian movement, which is an offshoot of Orthodoxy, the Eleishinists do not preach any particular religion. They do not call to believe in a particular God or to believe in general. Everyone who comes to them can carry their own faith and worship that higher being that is close to him.
  • There are no pastors, priests and religious symbols in the church. Services are held on Fridays, but they are led by different people, which helps parishioners learn something new.
  • Instead of religious symbols, the walls of the building are decorated with psychedelic paintings by the Spanish artist Okuda San Migel. The ceiling in the building is crowned with the heads of a bear and a bull, and an eagle can be seen on the wall. Behind the altar, a skull embedded in the wall flaunts, and opposite it, angels with needle-shaped heads sit blissfully under the tree of life, decorated with a modest blue flower. They say that the artist worked on painting the premises for exactly six days, and on the seventh he rested.
  • The church is located in an old building of the Lutheran church. They do not sell marijuana here, but they offer to buy merch or make a donation that will help keep this creative and ancient building in decent condition.

In Colorado, cannabis use is so prevalent that the presence of a marijuana church here is no surprise. In fact, this place was not the first cannabis church in the world, but the second. The first was in Indiana, where cannabis use is not legal, so the organization is illegal.

Headquarters of Ukrainian Rastafarians in Kharkiv

You don’t need to travel to another continent to see a place like this with your own eyes. We have been working in Kharkov for 20 years, the Coffeeshop® store. Here you can legally and absolutely safely buy marijuana seeds, because they do not contain prohibited substances. Their acquisition is equivalent to the purchase of souvenirs, food, bird and fish food.

We do not just sell creative souvenirs, but we offer a way of meaningfulness and self-understanding. Here you can meet with the rutman (prophet) of the Ukrainian Rastafarian Church, visit the cannabis museum and purchase smoking paraphernalia as a creative gift to a friend or loved one.

On Sundays at 4:20, breakdowns of the Rastafarian movement come to serve here, not recognizing the authority of “Babylon” (the influence of Western civilization). Our guests do not use alcohol and drugs – they are conscious people who believe in love and justice.

Having visited our apartments, you will learn how several decades ago in Ukraine they sold cannabis as a cure for tuberculosis (smoke from marijuana disinfects the air and is a natural antiseptic), how it was treated in antiquity (before, there were no alternatives in medicine – they used only natural remedies, so there was no time to invent conspiracy stories, it was necessary to save yourself and loved ones with what really works) and what positive changes are happening to the body and worldview of a stoner who approaches consumption consciously.

In Coffeeshop® you can buy unique hemp sandals made by a Kharkiv craftsman from plant fibers, clothes, cannabis sleeping pills, cosmetics and much more.

For those who live in other cities or simply do not like to go shopping offline, we offer to purchase goods on our website. Sending is carried out on the day of payment, delivery can be ordered to any corner of the globe.
