Magical Uses: Hemp was once widely used in magic. Due to the laws of the 1930's which restrict its use and sale, many of these practices are dying out. Hemp has long been used in love spells, divinations. Hemp was part of many visions and scrying incenses, the smoke of which opened the psychic senses. Mugwort and hemp were prescribed to be burned before a magic mirror to gain visions. It was also added to meditation incenses.
