Members of the International Church of Cannabis call themselves Elevationists. Through ritual, guided by spiritual practice, church members use the sacred flower to reveal the best version of self, discover a creative voice, and enrich their community with the fruits of that creativity.

There is no need to convert to Elevationism. Elevationism claims no divine law, no unquestionable doctrine, and no authoritarian structure. There are people of various denominations who are Elevationists, including Christians. We are Christians & hope to walk along side you in your spiritual journey.

In conclusion, Elevationists operate from the lifestance that an individual’s spiritual journey, and search for meaning, is one of self-discovery that is accelerated by ritual and mindful cannabis use. Similarly, they believe cannabis is a gift from the Creator that is a spiritual tool.

Church of Cannabis History

Elevationism started in Denver, Colorado with a small group of individuals unsatisfied with the outdated, organized religions currently available to them.

As a group, Elevationists demand the right to congregate and partake of their sacrament together. Furthermore, Elevationists desire respect for carrying out their deeply-held religious traditions, no matter how new those traditions may appear to be.
