"I passed the first seventeen years of my life without so much as a moment of serious self-reflection. A few pleasant puffs from a clumsily rolled joint shared with my dear older brother changed that… Changed everything. Cannabis became for me a sacrament, and quite literally, the gateway to magick. Farber's High Magick is a most timely and comprehensive look at the evolutionary and magical potentials of this sacred, magical entity."—Lon Milo DuQuette, author of Low Magick
"What an amazing book! A concise yet thorough, well-researched treatise weaving philosophical musings with useful exercises to enhance your enjoyment and utilization of all things cannabis. From dreadlocks to dishabituation, hypnosis to contact highs, I loved how this book kept coming back to the importance of ritual, and the art of always being open to possibility. High Magick is an important signpost on the road to the entheogenic revolution. Bravo, Phil Farber!"—Julie Holland, MD, editor of The Pot Book: A Complete Guide to Cannabis
"Farber has provided us with a well-researched, intelligent, and playful grimoire for initiates of the Herb Dangerous, aka cannabis. From NLP savvy mind hacks to group ceremonial practice, High Magick details the history, pharmacology, and mythology of cannabis and brings it all to life with practical esoteric techniques. Highly recommended indeed!"—Julian Vayne, author of Getting Higher: The Manual of Psychedelic Ceremony
"Phil Farber's High Magick is an excellent and accessible introduction to the historical role of cannabis in the magickal tradition, and its practical application by today's modern magicians. Highly recommended."—Chris Bennett, author of Liber 420: Cannabis, Magickal Herbs, and the Occult
"In the mind-expanding, interdisciplinary tradition of Aleister Crowley and Robert Anton Wilson, Farber explores the powerful interface between magick and the disciplined use of the cannabis plant. ... Overflowing with ancient lore, current science, effective exercises, and personal experiences that are at once practical and inspirational. Highly recommended!"—David Jay Brown, author Dreaming Wide Awake and The New Science of Psychedelics
"The magical use of cannabis is known among the Daoists and ancient Scythians. It is also a thread that connects the work of Francois Rabelais, John Dee and Edward Kelley, Paschal Beverly Randolph, Aleister Crowley, and Timothy Leary. Phil Farber's High Magick represents a culmination of this lineage in the sense that the powerful and direct 'meta-magick' practices that Farber teaches will help you to further blow those older practices wide open or to entirely create your own—or both!"—Edward Pandemonium, author of Twilight Language and The Gospel of Pandemonium
