Charles Tart’s research indicates that, “ The most characteristic effect of marijuana intoxication is an auditory one. ” This would indicate a tendency for cannabis to head into the realm of water. Indeed, a number of acupuncturists have indicated to me that they have witnessed the immediate effects of marijuana going straight to the kidney level.

In my clinical experience, I have observed, as I’ve mentioned elsewhere, that cannabis tends to follow an adaptogenic path that leads straight to the area in a person that is the most compromised and could use the most attention. In many people this will pertain to the kingdom of water. In addition, with chronic users there will tend to be a trending of symptoms, signs and pathology toward the kidney arena because this is the tendency of any chronic issue.

Tart also describes another effect that I have witnessed in cannabis-using people all over the world: many people can understand the meanings of songs when they are high that they can’t understand otherwise. This clearly relates to the meaning dimension of the water system.

He also describes how moderate users are more frequently associated with understanding the words of songs than heavy users. Although he struggles to explain this in his report, my clinical assessment of this phenomenon is that it is consistent with the general loss of comprehension that follows from Jing depletion in heavy cannabis users.
