Art and Passion
The relationship between cannabis and art
Even though cannabis has been used medicinally for centuries, it wasn’t until the 19th century when artists began to use it to expand their mind. Creativity processes vary depending on the individual, but it’s true that some people are capable of seeing beauty and art where others see a simple object or empty wall.
In order to find their muse, many have turned to cannabis, as well as its other compounds such as terpenes, which have the capacity to reduce anxiety, increase concentration and focus, an relax the body.
Terpene Profiles determine the sativa or indica effect
Nowadays, thanks to reent advances in science, we know that energetic and sedating effects produced by cannabis, known as sativa or indica, are actually determined by the terpene profile in each strain. This is why, depending on the aromatic composition alongside cannabinoids, the effect produced bye ach strain varies; more brainy and clear, creative, social, or maybe more sedative and relaxing. There is an endless amount of possibilities, and deciphering them has become our masterpiece.
Many different types of art and disciplines are related, for example, we know that music and maths are incredibly linked, and there is geometry hidden in plants, and each plant has its own unique aromatic composition. Being capable of deciphering and replicating that composition has turned into our “art”, and if our creations (terpene profiles) can help others find their place, find their muse, we’re satisfied. We’ve eliminated all psychoactive factors such as THC from the mix, making sure that our terpene profiles don’t muddle the mind in any way.
Looking for inspiration
Someone once said that capturing magic during the creative process is like catching lightning in a bottle. We think that there’s a certain terpene profile for each and every mood – the power of nature, terpenes, can help us fin the perfect mood to let creativity flow.
We’re not the only ones that think so; we’ve met different artists over the years with which we share the same beliefs, collaborating in different ways. Our large family is actually an artistic network that shares knowledge and experience; the fuel we need to keep creating unique, amazing aromas and surprising the world.
Dante Arcade, life is color and flavor
We love the originality of this Artist from Murcia's style, currently living in Barcelona. Dante works on street art and mural art and you can easily see the 90's influence in his work (US comics, memphis style...). Vaping helps him to relax achieve the calm he needs in his mind to allow the designs to flow.
El Doc, Passion Keeps me Going
Tattoo artists, illustrator, graffiti artists, this artist known as el doc came to Europe from Argentina years ago, where he started working on two of his passions; art and cannabis; this artist designs characters related to cannabis in his art, personalizing them for different brands. We love how original his work is and how he's able to mix so many different concepts in a way that flows so well.
Gallino Art, Dreams Come True
This artist from Uruguay believes in something similar to us - limits to not exist, and dreams are always achievable. He never believed that his art would become what it is now - authentic works of art that decorate entire buildings with realistic images that simply take your breath away. Have you ever wondered who's behind these amazing super realistic art works? Well, here you have it.
Alar: Hip-Hop as a Tool For Social Reform
We live in the era of the search for success, although this is quite a tricky concept that can end up causing us to follow a horizon that we may never reach. It’s necessary to redefine certain concepts and take a look inwards, towards our own values, in order to understand that success is doing what you’re passionate about. Albert Alarcon, known as Alar, learned that this is the only way: putting energy towards that which truly fills you with passion and gives your life meaning.
In his case, Alar’s passion is the Llobregat Block Party project, a socio-cultural project that uses Hip Hop to help artistic, cultural and personal growth in youths. A break-through concept that uses two main courses of action; on one hand, teaching work groups, and on the other hand, what are known as Block parties, parties where the work groups can put into practice what they’ve learnt and take part in the music scene.
Just like Alar tells us here, when you spend time and energy doing what you believe in, life gives you back positivity. However, it’s important to first look inwards and understand what really matters and what motivates you. To understand your priorities, you need to push aside any noise from your day to day activities, social media, and expectations that others may have. Alar tells us that when he needs to get back to that calm state, vaping CBD, leaving the city and surrounding himself with nature is what helps him the most.
