Lighthouse Cannabis Project, which provides cannabis connoisseurs with sightseeing tours in Colorado, has launched The Lighthouse Sessions. The series aims to explore the links between cannabis and musical creativity. Lighthouse worked with Boulder-based dispensary Terrapin Care Station to host Reed Mathis and Electric Beethoven to perform a set of live music at an active cannabis cultivation facility for the inaugural The Lighthouse Session.

Now that Colorado has become world-renowned for cannabis legalization, The Lighthouse Sessions will honor 1962 experiments from Dr T.C. Singh which successfully proved his theory that music, especially classical music, could stimulate plant growth. The Lighthouse Sessions will bring together top musicians and cannabis cultivators to produce live performances boasting high quality video and audio starting with Electric Beethoven.

Reed Mathis And Electric Beethoven riffed on a meditation from Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6 and even jammed on the Grateful Dead for a bit as part of the first ever The Lighthouse Sessions. “Beethoven’s music, like that of Coltrane, Louis Armstrong or the Grateful Dead, contains something so universal that it utterly transcends its societal context, and carries within it the keys to unlocking evolution, health and bliss at the cellular level,” Mathis said of the experience of performing in an active grow room.
