Beating Stress Made Fun: 5 Things to Try at Home

More than half of the world is shut down, and billions of people stuck at home and not able to do much. It’s taking a toll on people’s mental health – we need ways to relax, chill out, and distract ourselves from thinking about COVID-19.

Overthinking has induced anxiety among many of us. If not checked, it can cause serious health problems. According to a study by Washington State University, inhaling cannabis reduces stress, depression, and anxiety.

Stress needs to be addressed! Lack of stress management can lead to excessive generation of the stress hormone, cortisol – making you feel on edge and weakening your immune system. Amidst the pandemic, a weak immune system is the last thing you need! Additionally, the U.S. National Library of Medicine suggests that 75% to 90% of all diseases are caused by stress. Beat it! Here’s how.

Shake Your CBD

CBD or cannabidiol is a non-psychoactive substance in the cannabis plant, and it’s gaining traction for its stress-relieving properties. Mixing CBD with your drinks can prove to be a healthy choice. Since its non-psychoactive, you can also mix them with alcohol. Next time you’re making your morning shake, add a small amount of CBD oil to have a stress-free day.

Drink Terpenes

Aromatic oils in the cannabis flower are called terpenes. Terpenes that help in stress removal are Caryophyllene and Linalool. Mix 1-2 drops of terpenes with 500 ml of water and sip throughout the day. It will keep your mood elevated.

Take Notes

 Cannabis overuse can be dangerous! We advise that you keep track of your cannabis intake and take notes of the result. Make a journal and write down the quantity of weed you use and record the type of high you get. Being aware of your intake will help you practice mindfulness too.

Go Smoke-Free

There’s no denying the fact that smoking causes lung damage. Try smoke-free ways of cannabis intake, like vaporizing extracts and concentrates, and ingesting in a food item (read: brownies). Smoke-free intake prevents odor and may relieve stress and anxiety while staying at home.

Micro-Dosing Is The Best Bet

When it comes to cannabis, less is more! Micro-dosing can help relieve stress-induced anxiety. Overdosing may cause the opposite effects of what you’re looking for. Taking a smaller quantity doesn’t produce a high, but reduces your anxiety levels. We recommend starting with 2.5 mg and work your way up to a dose that gives you minimal effect.
