As a child, Carlos Santana watched his mother use local cannabis herbs to make homemade topical ointments. “When I found out what I had learned from my mother and what I had learned from the hippies at Haight-Ashbury, I found that there were two different frequencies on this planet: the frequency of self-deception; and the frequency of self-discovery, ”he told Leafly.

Mirayo is the next step on his journey to self-discovery.

Carlos Santana: Choose between “self-discovery or self-deception”.
