  • Plant Speech. crops
  • Plant Form. Small cannabis plant
  • Verdant Burst. When a Cannabis leshy dies, a burst of primal energy explodes from their body, restoring 18 (4d8) hit points to each plant creature in a 30-foot radius. This area fills with cannabis plants and faint smoke, becoming difficult terrain. If the terrain is not viable for cannabis, they wither after 24 hours.
  • Harsh Vibes/Just Chill. The Cannabis leshy emanates smoke in a 20-foot radius centered on itself. When a creature enters the radius for the first time, they must make a DC 14 Constitution saving throw or be charmed for 1 minute. On a failure, if the target rolled an even number on the die, they are subjected to the Calm Emotions spell; an odd number, they are subjected to the Fear spell.
  • Up In Smoke. Any time the Cannabis leshy suffers fire damage, the radius of its smoke cloud detailed in Harsh Vibes/Just Chill increases by 5 feet. Creatures within the radius are treated as if they entered for the first time.


  • Multiattack. The Cannabis leshy makes two attacks as action, using either its singe or stone attacks.
  • Singe. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 10 (2d4+5) bludgeoning damage plus 2 (1d4) fire damage.
  • Stone. Ranged Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, range 30/120 ft., one target. Hit: 12 (2d6+5) bludgeoning damage.
  • Blaze It. The Cannabis leshy belches out a burst of fire in a 15-foot cone. Creatures in the area make a DC 14 Dexterity saving throw, suffering 18 (4d6) fire damage on a failed save or half as much on a successful one. The leshy suffers 5 points of fire damage as a result of the attack.


Cannabis is one of the oldest and most controversial plants ever cultivated.

Also known as hemp, this plant has been grown for thousands of years for its medicinal, recreational, and spiritual uses. However, the growth and use of cannabis has been regulated around the globe in recent history.

But, the Cannabis leshy cares not for politics, preferring instead to just have a good time and put some positive energy out there. While weak to fire, burning this leshy may leave your grand plans up in smoke.

Warning: Cannabis Leshies may not be legal in your region. The Botanical Bestiary assumes no responsibility for the summoning of Cannabis Leshies. Consult your local guardhouse or magistrate before summoning. If possession of a Cannabis leshy is permissible, remember to share.
