About conscious smoking:
When smoking is done mindlessly, and in excess, it will lead to an imbalance in the body. (Just as will eating ice cream or staring at a screen questioning human existence. etc.).
Mindlessly doing ritualistic acts is a time of the past. We do things Presently and with intent. (period pooh) Conscious smoking is a way to connect with the magic of plants. Before modern times became so “sophisticated” it was very common for many things, if not everything, to possess spirits/magical powers. Spirits were related to personalities which were said to inhabit all sorts of things: plants, animals, places, times of day, and even seasons of the year, just to name a few. Consciously Connecting with the magic of plants is a ceremony of purpose and Smoking them is a powerful act. It's a function of purification when done with intent. Smoking is a transference of information/magic that the receiver feels in a delectable way.
Conscious smoking is an appropriate use of plants and as such is a choice powered by intent (purpose). It’s done for pleasure, for the connection to the Spirits it invokes and, as a positive experience.
