There are probably thousands of different kinds of weed smokers out there. You have your casuals, your metalhead stoners, cannabis science nerds – the list goes on. But easily one of the best-known, and perhaps most-shamed, is the white-guy spiritualist. Nothing is more annoying than a fresh-out of university guy who is “really in touch with the 31 planes of Buddhism.”

But, I digress. What fun is there in hating on other fellow cannabis consumers? This week, we’ve compiled a list of spiritual jazz. You’ll recognize some sounds, such as those from the cosmic Sun Ra and John Coltrane, and maybe also those of underappreciated geniuses like Alice Coltrane and Joe Henderson. So, sit back, roll your zoot and enjoy an astral projection.

Happy toking!
