“If you are familiar with the tarot you will recognise Instant Archetypes cards as direct (post) modernised substitutes of the classic Major Arcana. It is a condensed symbolic mythology of the present moment, in the way that the classic cards condensed a symbolic mythology of the past. The old archetypes have not disappeared, they just got new names and new manifestations.”

CBD is another active component and could offer some of the same medical benefits (anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, analgesic), but without the side effect of getting high. CBD interacts with serotonin and vanilloid receptors in the brain, which affect mood and the perception of pain. It also has antioxidant properties.”
