Kashmir represents mystery, wonder and knowledge. Images of Ganesha, Shiva and Kashmir have filled coffee shops and hash bars world wide for a good reason.  The Kashmir region of the world has had an active legal marijuana trade for thousands of years. The Kashmir cannabis strains, Kush, have been the most influential to the plant, products and industry.  Kashmir is The Essence of the Industry.

Every good movement passes through five stages, indifference, ridicule, abuse, repression, and respect.
— Gandhi
