India's Marijuana Legacy and Sadhu Culture

India's Marijuana Legacy and Sadhu Culture

At PRDGY, we're excited to unveil our latest collection, inspired by the rich history of marijuana in India. As a streetwear brand deeply rooted in cultural expression, we draw inspiration from societal narratives and historical significance to create designs that resonate with our diverse audience.

This season, we draw inspiration from the ancient history of marijuana in India, infusing our latest collection with elements that pay homage to this revered plant's cultural significance.
For centuries, marijuana has played a pivotal role in Indian culture, weaving its way through religious ceremonies, medicinal practices, and social traditions. Revered as a sacred herb in ancient texts like the Vedas, marijuana holds a prominent place in Hindu mythology, associated with deities like Lord Shiva. In certain sects of sadhus, particularly among the Naga sadhus, the use of marijuana as a sacrament is not uncommon. These ascetics believe that marijuana, when consumed in moderation and with spiritual intent, can aid in meditation and facilitate a deeper connection with the divine. For them, marijuana is not a mere recreational substance but a tool for spiritual exploration and communion. Beyond its spiritual significance, marijuana has been utilized in Ayurvedic medicine for its therapeutic properties, offering relief from ailments ranging from pain to anxiety.

Our new collection pays homage to the cultural significance of marijuana as well as Sadhu’s in India through bold and innovative designs.

While our designs celebrate the cultural legacy of marijuana in India, we want to emphasize that PRDGY does not promote or endorse smoking or substance use. Instead, we aim to shed light on societal norms and taboos, sparking conversations and fostering a deeper understanding of cultural heritage. Our designs serve as a platform for artistic expression and cultural exploration, inviting individuals to engage with and interpret their meaning in their own unique way.
