The website http://www.herbs2000.com/herbs/herbs_mar. links the the plant
and Lord Shiva:
"Athavaveda - the fourth book of the Vedas that has been translated into
English and titled 'The Science of Charms' - says that 'bhang' is one of the
'five kingdoms of herbs, which relieves anxiety'. Notably, this Western
logic or perception does not entirely tally with the South Asian astuteness
which is not restricted by Newtonian judgment. According to a Hindu myth or
allegory, long before the creation of the universe the Gods had churned a
cosmic mountain with a view to obtain nectar for an eternal life. It is said
that marijuana plants germinated at all places where the nectar dropped on
or touched the earth.

If one takes a close look at the conventional Indian medicine, he or she
will find that numerous preparations of cannabis have been used to cure
dissimilar disorders such as fever, dysentery, sunstroke as well as leprosy.
According to traditional Indian medicine, cannabis is effectively used to
absolve phlegm (thick mucus secreted by the walls of the respiratory tract,
especially during a cold), speed up the digestion process, hone up the
intellect, enhance the body's preparedness as well as function as elixir
vitae (a vital magic potion or a quick cure). Unlike the Western medical
science, the Hindu medical practice also deals with the spiritual
consciousness of a person while healing his ailments. According to the Hindu
mythology, whenever any devotee offers 'ganja' to Lord Shiva, the 'king of
Gods', it pleases Him. Interestingly, this relation between Lord Shiva and
'ganja' is believed to be precious while upholding an individual's physical
health and emotional or psychological balance. A Hindu text titled
'Rajvallabha' written in the 17th century states that this wish-gratifying
drug was believed to have been acquired by men on earth for the welfare of
all people. It further says that those who use it regularly are full of joy
and without any distress."

It's only a temporary experience like acid.
If it's anything like LSD, if a person starts out fucked up, then the drugs
only magnify the fucked upness so I guess you end up with an enlightened,
fucked up individual and that doesn't sound like a fun place to be.

During the sixties, I met a lot of people that never should have tried any
form of hallucinogen because it just messed them up further.

It is true. A lot of drugs are danegerous. But some drugs, when properly
used, can help.
Ayahusca have DMT ( Dimethyltryptamine ). It is a hormon ( DMT ) that is
produced by our pineal gland too.
Pineal gland is our "third eye", a brige between our soul and body.
Aditional DMT can help use to explore spiritual plane of existence.
