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”

Getting settled in to train life, Uncle Weed and friends ponder the meal schedule, sleeping schedule, timezones, awesome showers, random rules, and what staff must think of them. With Grant Lawrence interviewing Adaline, she shares how she has used road rage for a musical muse.
