Fire on Canaan Mountain ~ Choogle On Jamaica Scheme #4

On a hike to a mountain top ganja patch, a new pal called Foot shares his curing technique to make the chocolate weed, plus opinions on Jamaica cannabis strains, and effects on his stamina. Then, a Rasta bushman called Fire gleefully explains Ital food traditions while grating coconut for a hearty natural stew cooked on a fire before exploring his forest garden of plantains, pimentos, soursop and more bounty – before reaching ganja mountain to squeeze skunk buds with Uncle Weed in the hot sun.

“If you worry, it’s a problem, if you don’t worry, it’s a problem – so stop worrying and start living”
