Does the idea of the holidays have you saying ho ho oh no? As the weather gets colder and the snow starts to fall, your heart is supposed to become warm with family and friends as you snuggle up in your favorite cashmere. We understand that for some, that’s not the case. If you’re already stressing out about eating another helping of Aunt Mary’s apple pie, can’t take one more Uncle Bob’s inappropriate jokes or have even considered booking a hotel room to avoid enduring your brother’s snoring for another year, then this post is for you.
The holidays may present a dizzying array of demands, and it’s been proven that cannabis can help you manage them, whether those demands come with a dose of stress, anxiety, and/or pain. There are many types of anxiety and many varieties of cannabis that may help alleviate symptoms, and finding the right balance of THC, CBD and terpenes is key. We recommend doing some research online, talking to a doctor and experimenting with different strains to help you find the right one for you.
Whether you are using Jack Herer for general anxiety, Strawberry Cough for social anxiety or Northern Lights to help with OCD, it is great to know that the healing benefits of cannabis are becoming more and more available. Many states and Canada have already recognized the curative benefits of cannabis and have therefore legalized marijuana, so there is no need to barter part of your mental health to deal with the overwhelming feelings that the holidays can bring when instead, you can get some peace of mind with a toke or two. Cannabis can help heighten your senses, relax your mind and body, and hey, it’s the holidays, so you can appreciate those munchies to a whole new level. Aunt Mary’s apple pie isn’t sounding like such a bad idea anymore, is it? ;)
And now, when you’re unwinding with some flower, a joint or your vaporizer, you have the option to filter your secondhand smoke, thanks to the folk at San Diego startup, PHILTER labs. Get a little head change going and go build a snowman with little Emma or sit by the fire and listen to Grandpa’s war stories (cannabis helps veterans too) and each time you take a hit, just exhale into your POCKET or PHLIP, and leave nothing but crisp, clean winter air behind. This is all thanks to PHILTER’s Zero 5 Technology, which incorporates advanced aerodynamic principles into a filter small enough to fit into your pocket.
Here’s wishing you and yours a relaxed and healthy holiday season!
