It’s true: Singer Jhené Aiko doesn’t mind getting high sometimes.

On her ethereal new album Souled Out and in person, she’s open about this, as she’s open about most things. During a visit to BuzzFeed’s New York office, the singer, mother, and free spirit explained why weed is a part of her life.

1. Smoking weed can unlock your creativity.

Especially in the studio, Aiko said. A self-identified “social smoker, not a pothead,” she said smoking can help open her mind and allow it to tap into ideas she didn’t know she had. The best ideas, she said, always come not when she’s most high, but when she’s coming down.

2. And bring you closer with your girl friends.

 
 

Aiko said when she’s smoking weed with other women, they crack hilarious jokes, but also open up. Being high can facilitate deep, emotional conversations, not just goofy ones.

3. It can soothe cramps and headaches.

4. And can be a way to claim some time that’s just for you.

 

On the song “Blue Dream,” Aiko sings to a strain of weed of the same name like it’s a lover. Her enthusiasm, she said, isn’t because she thinks smoking weed is a good replacement for a romantic relationship, but because she cherishes the time she spends getting high as time she takes for herself. It’s all about “loving that ‘you’ time,” she said.

5. Getting high can help your remember and reaffirm positive thoughts you have about yourself.

Smoking can be like meditation, Aiko said. But because of that, it’s important to “make sure your thoughts are high” before you are too. If you’re already down, smoking can make you feel worse. But if you place some positive thoughts in your mind, being high is a great opportunity to focus on them, which can bring your spirit up long after you’re sober again.

6. And help you show others that you believe that women should have all the same opportunities as men.

 
 

Getting high isn’t a thing boys do, Aiko said. That’s because there’s really no such thing as a boy’s thing — Aiko rejected the idea that any habit, good or bad, is gendered.

7. And relieve some stress during the early years of motherhood.

Aiko’s got an elementary-school-aged daughter, Namiko. She never smokes around children and wouldn’t advise others to. But she said that smoking a couple puffs in the hours after her daughter has been dropped off at school can be productive — allowing her some space to de-stress and get her own affairs in order before sober family time in the evening.

8. The right weed can replace coffee.

 

Not all weed makes you lazy, Aiko said. Her favorite strain, Blue Dream, lifts her mood and makes her want to write and be productive. Fittingly, it also doesn’t have a skunky, heavy smell — but a citrusy, bright one.

9. Being high can put you on the same wavelength as your significant other.

Well, “as long as you’re both smoking the same stuff.”

10. And help you see the other side when you’re having an argument with someone important.

 

On her song “2 Seconds,” Aiko sings: “Man I wish I had some weed up in my system / Cause I’m bout two seconds away from just flippin’ out.” She said that being high has helped her approach important conversations with a calm, level head. Weed has helped her to not just speak from emotion and pragmatically work through issues, she said.

11. But most of all, smoking weed can help you find your own limits.

“Everything in moderation,” Aiko emphasized. Social smoking can be great, but for her, finding that right dose and strain was a crucial first step.

You game?

Let’s start a new game.

We’ll begin with our closest extremities and provisions, then eventually incorporate toys as they become available.

In the spirit of exploring, experience and ecstasy (let’s refer to these as the 3Es) I move that the next opportunity you get, alone or with a partner:

Incorporate

Do you turn yourself on? You should. Don’t shy away from more creative play just because you may be alone. It’s not all about getting directly down to the “Big O”. Discover new turn ons and hot spots through exploring yourself and partner.
Daft Punk has it right

Have fun!

Okay, so, you have to school me on Ganja Vibes. Go!

Today I made a new friend. It all started when I “liked” a picture and commented with praise of a certain awesome distribution company‘s move on Facebook…..The response was a “friending” along with the entitled request in a private message.

This is my response:

I have been a long time advocate of Cannabis and a healthy sex life. After a long romance with both cultures I saw a niche market untapped.

Enters “Ganja Vibes”, a place where sex and weed combine to help you find your highest highs!

I have conceptualized adult novelty designs for Cannabis enthusiasts. The “Mary Jane VibratorTM” is my first product on the manufacturing line. Currently being manufactured in China, eventually I hope the products will one day be “made in America”.

The “Mary Jane VibratorTM” is a personal massager/ clitoral stimulator. Discrete enough to leave lying around the house, but so well designed that you’ll want one for your every day massage use as well as sexual use. It’s amazing while being utilized with a partner. The most common response, a loud “I WANT ONE!”

The Ganja Vibes adult novelty line will include your basic toys, along with some other wild machinations I have worked out. I have yearned for more creativity and a safe haven (toys that I actually relate to; i.e. my love of Marijuana) while exploring sexuality, pleasure and fun. So I created it.

Clitoral Stimulator: The Mary Jane VibratorTM
Butt Plug: Under Development
Dildo: Under Development
Dong: Under Development
Fetish Toys: ‘Spanker’ Under Development

Accompaniments:

The facebook page, like the blog, is a musing, entertainment and updates hub. I have been very careful while establishing my trademarks, copyrights and patents, so you will not find any images of the toys soon to be released.

Can a cornucopia of marijuana related sex tools change the minds of many and effect our society as we know it??? – I believe it can!

My goal is to offer these goodies at an affordable cost to all those who love the cultures.

I get phone calls every day from friends and messages from new supporters asking when can they see what’s being produced and some even ask where can they buy one, before they even see it. I can not express how much fuel this puts on the huge fires burning….I am GRATEFUL, TREMENDOUSLY APPRECIATIVE AND PUMPED about how excited everyone is to welcome Ganja Vibes on the scene with open arms! THANK YOU!
