Ezekiel 34:29 - Jah People Version
Raise my plant of character (Cannabis); remove hunger from the earth by casting away the disgrace of the nations. [JPV]

Babylon... the profane world order.  Babylon means confusion.

How do Jah people exist in this confused and perverted world without becoming corrupted by it?

John 15:2-4 - Jah People Version
All branches in me (Jah) by themselves bring forth no fruit to lift themselves up.  Therefore all are to carry fruit (Cannabis, Numbers 16:47) to atone themselves in order that they may bring forth more excellent results. [John 15:2, JPV]
Even now you are purified by that which I have just told you. [JPV]
Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

When the answer is so simple, why do so many have so much trouble?

Ezekiel 8:17 - Jah People Version
He said see the children of Adam?  In contempt the court of Judah practices disgusting abhorrence (Isaiah 66:14) which fills the Earth with violence and provokes trouble:  They have forsaken the branch for the nose (Cannabis, 1Samuel 1:5). [JPV]

How do Jah people correct this situation?

Isaiah 30:33 - Jah People Version
Tophet (kindling Cannabis incense) is timelessly ordained (legislated) for kings.  It is established.  Grow profoundly large piles to burn and be filled with the tree.  The breath of Jah is a stream of healing balm, to kindle (to consume (by fire or by eating)). [JPV]

What good will that do?

Revelation 3:18 - Jah People Version
I counsel you to be redeemed of my gold (illumination: Cannabis) kindled with fire in order to become wealthy and clothed in white clothing (light).  Become fully invested (in Cannabis' light) and the disgrace of your nakedness (lack of light) will no longer appear.  Therefore anoint your eye with my anointing (Cannabis) in order to see. [JPV]

We must be able to see in order to find our way.

Jah's anointing Cannabis consecrates people, enabling them to see.


Profane (unholy, not consecrated) statutes regulate profane matters.

Natural consecration restores natural (divine) order:

1 Chronicles 14:2-4 - Jah People Version
David perceived that Jah ordains kings of israel, for his kingdom was exceedingly high and thus the people were governed by Jah. [JPV]
So David disseminated Jah's foundation of peace (Cannabis), thus David brought forth more sons and daughters (of Jah: born of the breath). [JPV]
This is the character of children founded peacefully (born of Cannabis); they are renowned for rebellion and bring peace [JPV]

It restores natural order by replacing profanity with divine (natural) law:

Isaiah 42:1-4 - Jah People Version
My servant I sustain. My elect breathes reconciliation via my ordained breath (Cannabis, Isaiah 30:33) by which I command what is lawful to the nations. [JPV]
Gather together in highness and proclaim abroad: [JPV]
Oppression of Cannabis is destruction. Smoking of hemp is not to be extinguished. Bring forth what is lawfully established (Cannabis, Isaiah 30:33): [JPV]
You are not subject to oppression. Ordained is Jah's ordinance (Cannabis, Isaiah 30:33) on Earth. Every habitable spot finds hope in his law. [JPV]

This is why men so-consecrated naturally tend to dismiss offending profane statues.  Such are governed by natural law and naturally declare it:

Isaiah 66:5-7 - Jah People Version
Declare the word of Jah and respect his command.  Others hate and prohibit Jah's appellation (Cannabis, Exodus 34:14).  Jah commands: promote my appellation to honor and experience exceeding joy without shame. [JPV]
Proclaim it with uproar in the city.  Proclaim it in the temple.  Proclaim Jah's restoration wich reforms even his enemies. [JPV]
Bring my appellation (Cannabis) forth and bear children: my rope of love (Cannabis, Hosea 11:4) rescues mankind. [JPV]

A common contemporary expression of this natural law is found on "God grew it" t-shirts popular within Cannabis culture.


Have you been mislead or even commanded to push the consecrated branch away from your nose?

2 Samuel 22:16 - Jah People Version
The strength of the sea-faring (commercial order) is discerned, and the foundation of Babylon is revealed by the reproof (Cannabis) of Jah; by puffing his spirit, the breath of our nostrils [JPV]

Psalm 10:2 - Jah People Version
The wicked in arrogance persecute the poor and manipulate without warrant via devices (profane statutes) maliciously imagined. [JPV]

Prohibition is obstruction of both covenant and inheritance:

Isaiah 49:8 - Jah People Version
Jah declares acceptable is the time. Announce of the age of salvation, protection and preservation. Jah's ordained covenant with the people is established on Earth (Cannabis, Isaiah 30:33). It is our wonderful inheritance [JPV]

Yet Babylon continues to judge Jah people (Cannabis' folk).  A famous messenger of Jah declared long ago:

Matthew 16:27 - Jah People Version
Seeing: the son of man will come by means of the glory (means of praise/worship) of his father accompanying his messengers and at that time recompense every man according to his works. [JPV]

By the means of his father accompanying his messengers:

Ezekiel 47:13-14 - Jah People Version
Lord Jah says: This is the cord which occupies the land of the twelve tribes of Israel: Joseph's rope (Cannabis).  [JPV]
Inherit it, you and your kindred: raise my hand (Cannabis) given unto your fathers and the Earth will be judged by your inheritance. [JPV]


Psalm 69:35-36 - Jah People Version
Jah's salvation for Zion will repair the cities judah inhabits.  Our inheritance [JPV]
is the seed of his servants: the ordained inheritance of all who love Jah's appellation (Cannabis) is to reside permanently in it's rest. [JPV]

When profanity oversteps its bounds require respect by declaring natural law:

Isaiah 62:1-4 - Jah People Version
Zion's peace is Jerusalem's rest (Cannabis, Matthew 11:29).  The righteous bring forth brilliance and salvation with my lamp which is for kindling. [JPV]
The heathen (profane order) shall respect natural right; Jah's royal copiousness calls forth his new name via the mouth with Jah's appellation (Cannabis, Psalm 111:9) [JPV]
who's crown of glory is the hand (Cannabis, Isaiah 66:14) of Jah; the royal diadem (head-dress).  This diadem, the hand (Cannabis) of Jah,
will no longer be called prohibited on Earth, which certifies desolation.  Call forth delight (Cannabis) in the Earth.  The dominion of Jah gives pleasure to the land via marriage (communion: Cannabis, John 2:1). [JPV]

Love one another.  Inherit The Branch.  



sow (v.)

Old English sawan "to scatter seed upon the ground or plant it in the earth, disseminate".

What are we disseminating?

From the east to the west my character is disseminated among the nations; in every place incense brings forth my character.  It is my pure sacrificial offering by which my character is disseminated among the nations, saith the LORD of hosts.  (Malachi 1:11)

The Sowing Machine

is designed to help do this in the age of information.  This is it.  Here's how it works:
  • Browse to whichever seed strains you choose
  • Download the free seed pack for each of your chosen seed strains
  • Sow your seeds by "planting" them.  Share on social media; share via email; embed on websites; print cards to hand out; leave at the coffee shop; post on bulletin boards, etc...
  • If you print cards/hardcopies, DO put your personal or organization's logo and/or information on the back side so people know who has loved them by sharing knowledge.  On all other media, place your information near your seed image where it seems appropriate to you.

The only law is:

Love.  Always sow (share) these seeds with love.  Their purpose is The Healing Of The Nations (Revelation 22:2).  That is Love.

SpiritLeaf Ministries Seed Strains are free to share (unmodified), presented by YOU!  Because you're the sower.


Sowing seeds is an easy way to share, spead the good news and help heal the world.  The more people who know what The Seed is for, the sooner every remaining objection to it will be overcome.


For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall be effective wherever I send it.  (Isaiah 55:10-11)

The seeds below are some truly groovy words.  Send 'em forth!

Sow!... and let's reap the beautiful green harvest of Healing together!

View Leaflet list

The Leaflet is a blog of Cannabis-related nuggets of information.  Short informational articles that you can use to share ideas with others, inspire conversation and perhaps encourage people to look deeper into the subject and gain knowledge for themselves.  JahShuah taught that knowledge, not blind faith, is what makes InI free (John 8:32).  The Leaflet is a place for nugs of knowledge to share.

A "nug" within Cannabis culture is a little bud.  It's also a term we use to describe a small amount of relevant information.

Read, enjoy, like... but most importantly:  share.  Knowledge only works when you share it.  You can easily share with a light question.  Here are some examples:

  • "Hey Dad, look at this interesting leaflet.  Do you know anything about this? (link to leaflet)"
  • "Senator Johnson, this leaflet (link) relates to the subject we were discussing last week.  Please give me your thoughts..."
  • "Julie, I know you were taught Cannabis is a sin.  Did you know this (leaflet link) was in the bible?"
  • "Hey Bob, remember our chat about seizures and cancer the other day?  Take a peek at this leaflet (link) and let me know what you think."
  • "Pastor Adams, I'm dealing with the subject of this leaflet within my family.  I know many others who are as well.  Will you please look at this (link) so we can discuss it?"

You don't have to push your opinion.  You don't have to make people see.  You don't even have to win an argument.  Thoughts are things, and they are planted like a seed.  Share a thought... and idea... a concept... a Leaflet... in a positive and non-confrontational way, and you have planted a seed.  Sharing another thought or two is watering...  If the soil (recipient's mind) is at all open and fertile, the seed will grow.  Plants have seed within themselves which spread, take hold and become more plants.  The effect is exponential and can quickly cover the entire landscape.

Leaflets are seeds.  The people around you are the soil.  Sharing is sowing seed.

Enjoy The Leaflet, and please... share.

Words are interesting things.  They are symbols we use to convey ideas.  We can show someone a photo of a glass of water... or we can scratch out a drawing... or we can point at the sink and then to our mouth... or we can say or write "may I have some water?"  All of these approaches are symbolic ways to convey the idea we want or need the wet stuff that comes from the lake.

Problems arise when words are used to imply things they don't mean, and when their definitions are limited or filtered such that original, essential meaning is lost and confusion results.

Genesis 11:1-9 tells the story of the Tower of Babel and describes how to divide, disperse and render a united people powerless:  confuse the language.

The Groovy Word is a place to clear up certain confusions... one word at a time.


What is SpiritLeaf Ministries?

SpiritLeaf Ministries is primarily a teaching ministry focused on the spiritual history and contemporary role of Cannabis.   We teach and share knowledge via the spiritleafministries.org website, social media and live presentations.  Contact SpiritLeaf to come speak to your group, church, club, association, etc.

Who is SpiritLeaf?

SpiritLeaf is just a regular guy.  He is a husband, father and professional computer geek.  He drinks coffee, eats food, wears socks (sometimes) and does the regular things human beings do.  His background is fundamental/charismatic Christianity where he usually served by playing guitar.  He is drawn to words and dictionaries and etymology and looking at the meanings of the Greek and Hebrew expressions behind English Bible translation.  Today he is a Rasta man and teacher with a universal interest, as all traditions/cultures have their own languages and stories though which they teach perceptions of "God".  

SpiritLeaf is a teacher of biblical atonement and spiritual healing.  SpiritLeaf's particular interest is in what JahShuah ("Jesus") had to say about Cannabis / Hemp, as it is the Bible's prophesied Plant of Renown; the Healing Of The Nations.  His prayer is that we all be One.  That's Rasta.  That's universal.   One Love.

Background, Credentials and Associations

Why "SpiritLeaf"?

SpiritLeaf is a chosen/spiritual name.  Many people have chosen/spiritual names.  Names like Eagle Feather, Running Deer, Cresent Moon, Black Elk and Red Cloud are some other examples of chosen or spiritual names which provide particular meaning to their holders.

The Bible articulates several such meaningful names:

  • Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.  (Genesis 17:5, KJV)
  • And God said unto Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be.  (Genesis 17:15, KJV)
  • And God said unto him, Thy name is Jacob: thy name shall not be called any more Jacob, but Israel shall be thy name: and he called his name Israel.  (Genesis 35:10, KJV)
  • And Simon he surnamed Peter;  (Mark 3:16, KJV)
  • A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.   (Proverbs 22:1, KJV)
Why not use your "legal"/given name?

What we teach and express here is in accordance with the First Commandment of Jah religion which clearly articulates how to view such a thing.  Babylon's "legal" name convention implies permission by which to identify and under who's authority it is granted.  SpiritLeaf teaches under Jah's authority alone using the name given to him, by Jah, for this purpose.

Therefore if any man be in the anointing of JahShuah, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.  (2 Corinthians 5:17, KJV)

Today, there is only SpiritLeaf; the new creature.  The previous man identified by secular authority (under a "legal name") no longer exists.  This is the point and object of Jah religion.  It is the explicit meaning of the word "church" (Greek ekklesia, meaning called out of Babylon (thus no longer of it)).

  • Thou shalt have no other gods (magistrates; controllers) before me.  (Exodus 20:3, KJV)  Jah alone.


When Jah gives one a new name, one honors Jah by identifying with that name.


As all names express character, "SpiritLeaf" is an expression of Jah's Law.

  • For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.  (Isaiah 9:6, KJV)

Please look closely at Jah's government.  It is found upon JahShuah's shoulder.  "SpiritLeaf" is a spiritual name expressing, in a word, Jah's government.  It is given by JahShuah for this purpose, whenever and wherever it is spoken.


Respecting Jah, god of the host (cannabis), who's smoke is the prayer of the people. [Psalm 80:4, JPV]

I am,

Ras SpiritLeaf


Love one another.
