Love might be the greatest theme, but as far as music is concerned, cannabis is the greatest enabler. Weed, kush, chronic, ganja, kaya, mary jane, marijuana, reefer, the sticky icky - she goes by many names and chances are most of these names are also songs that you know and love.

As Canada legalises recreational cannabis use, we leaf through the history of music and find songs that were not only inspired by the great green, but also best experienced under its influence. From Nobel laureates like Bob Dylan to the Pulitzer winning Kendrik Lamar, every musician has worshipped at the altar of the heavenly herb. This playlist celebrates the very best.

So sit back, relax and expect the sacred and the profane rolled into a neat little blunt that you can just puff… puff and pass.
