Helpful Cannabis Tips From Dr. Joy Summers
Now that adult recreational use is legal in Arizona, it is time to explore the many benefits cannabis can provide. It has been well established that cannabis may be great for pain relief and sleep but I think it’s important to consider additional uses for this awesome plant that may improve your quality of life!
Do you partake in an evening cocktail? Or two or three? Or a few glasses of wine to take the edge off the day? Why not enjoy some cannabis instead? Not only will you avoid the dehydrating effects of alcohol, but you will also eliminate all those extra calories you are consuming in an effort to achieve a relaxed state. A typical drink contains at least 100 calories worth of alcohol, not to mention the calories in all the mixers. So if it takes you a few cocktails to achieve your relaxed happy hour vibe, you are consuming the calorie-equivalent of another meal. If you chose to utilize cannabis to obtain this blissful state, just a few calorie-free puffs can get you in that happy place within minutes! If inhaling is not your thing, a few drops of tincture or a low-dose edible can also replace that booze.
Cannabis can also be a great way to enhance the enjoyment and experience of many activities. Of course, it is not legal to use cannabis in public and we don’t want you driving under the influence, but with proper planning, cannabis can be a great way to level up your enjoyment factor! Many uplifting strains have a cerebral effect that enhances music, dancing, cooking and eating great food, or enjoying nature. We have all spent so much time at home because of Covid. Cannabis is a great way to beat that Covid-fatigue and make old experiences new again!
If you are looking to snuggle up on the couch with your sweetie, cannabis can be great for that too. Heavier hitting strains or 1:1 products that produce more of a body effect can promote relaxation and sleep. For a quiet night in, a nice edible before dinner can lead to a fun evening of movies and cuddling on the couch. If you are hoping to do more than cuddle, we have products for that too! Some cannabis strains are very sexually stimulating, and there are also products designed specifically for intimacy. So many new things to try!
With the events of the past year, we are all more stressed than usual and anxiety is high. Guess what? Cannabis can help with that too. THC and other terpenes found in cannabis produce an uplifting, euphoric effect that can be very helpful in combating the blues or anxiety. A few puffs or one gummy can erase those worries and leave you ready to face the day. Micro-dosing THC, 1:1 products, or CBD alone can all help address daily stress and anxiety without leaving you feeling altered. The proper dose can allow you to focus on the tasks at hand and quiet those disruptive thoughts.
Have you taken up a new hobby? Cannabis can inspire great creativity and make creative endeavors even more fun. If you’ve been thinking about painting the day away with Bob Ross, making music, or working on that novel, cannabis can enhance both your enjoyment of the activity and magnify your creative capacity.
Ultimately, cannabis raises the enjoyment of so many different aspects of life. Old activities can seem new again. Going to the dispensary and picking out different strains can be a hobby itself! Try different products, experiment with different strains, and discuss the effects with your partner or friends. Most importantly, relax and enjoy all the benefits cannabis can bring to your life.
