This collaboration between MYM Organics, The Hemp Co-op and Jesus Chaidez, pays tribute to the ancient deity Shennong, a mystic best known for his practices of boiling water to prevent diseases. Folktales describe Shennong as an immortal with horns and a transparent stomach that wandered ancient China foraging the forests to expand his medicinal prowess. Shennong went as far as poisoning himself only to discover the cure’s inner workings, all of which were typically documented and shared with the people. The use of Cannabis is just one of several plants whose medicinal use is attributed to Shennong. According to tradition, while boiling water on a windy day, Shennong had discovered wild tea leaves in his cauldron. Upon drinking the concoction, Shennong was enamored with the positive effects the drink had on his body and since then had taught people to drink tea.
This Limited Edition Collection is a continuation of Shennong’s lessons as we work to create sustainable plant based solutions to heal our communities. This textile was eco-designed to produce Zero Waste and is naturally dyed in CBD leaves and flowers, of which we share an offering to burn. As you will discover the natural fibers reverberate positivity, mystic tales and earthy color tones.
