In Crowley's "777" Column XLIII there is a correspondences of Sephiroth to Vegetable Drugs. When following the Crowley's system, this way one can atribute the said drugs to any god on wishes:
Column XLIII: Vegetable Drugs
i. Elixir Vitae — the attribution to Kether is due to its omniform

5. Nux Vomica, Nettle, and Cocaine are given here for their power
of excitation in one way or another. The attribution of the last named is
doubtful as its apparent stimulating function is really due to its function
as a local anaesthetic. Atropine is given here on account of its power to

6. These drugs are all direct cardiac stimulants. Alcohol in
particular pertains to Bacchus. Further, it is an omniform menstruum
for the Astral Light.
7-8. Cannabis Indica and Anhalonium Lewinii appear to act on both
these Sephiroth. Their action is very similar. They produce in one
mood voluptuous visions which pertain to Venus, and in another confer
the power of self-analysis, which is Mercurial.
9. This attribution refers to its alleged aphrodisiac action.
10. Corn is the typical stimulant of the Nephesch as such.
