The History of Cannabis and Music

The history of cannabis and music can be dated back to the 1900s. Famous and legendary jazz musicians in the American city of New Orleans, such as Louis Armstrong and Cab Calloway, made use of the ‘reefer’ popular by making songs inspired by their love of cannabis. During that time, cannabis use was widespread amongst musicians, especially jazz bands. This is not the only genre of music that has been influenced by cannabis, though, and we see this feature in many genres from reggae to rock, and, of course, hip-hop. For musicians, cannabis is a creative stimulant and many create music while under the influence. Certain strains, such as sativa, affect the mind and boost creativity, which allows musicians to create beautiful hits that their sober minds would not be able to create. These days, you will find many contemporary musicians using cannabis, including Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, and the entire Marley family, to name a few. Cannabis and music have a special bond, and it will likely never break. You can expect musicians in the future to consume cannabis, and it will continue to be more normalized.
