Joints aren’t the only things rolled these days. Winter has officially rolled in and set up shop. And she doesn’t look like she’s leaving any time soon.
For some of you that thrive in the cold, windy months; kudos to you! For others that might have a harder time adjusting to the frigid temperatures and darkness, this post might be of special interest to you.
Cannabis and Wellness: What’s The Buzz?
During the winter months, it’s easy to retreat. Retreat to a cozy space. Retreat by a fireplace. Retreat to a slower paced life. Re-treat yourself. (We’re of course talking about a second helping of Oreos.) With all the retreation, it’s easy to lose our way on the wellness path. But, what if wellness was fun AND enhanced? Would it make it easier to stay on track? Yes. At least, we think so.
Join us as we explore how to incorporate cannabis into your winter regime to help you navigate the season with greater ease, comfort, and sense of accomplishment.
Hit the Hay
Sleep is so incredibly important for your overall well-being. While asleep, our bodies work overtime supporting healthy brain functions and maintaining our physical health. Without sleep, we simply cannot function at our best and we start breaking down physically and mentally. If you struggle getting the right amount of sleep for your body – which definitely depends on the individual – consider cannabis products that contain the sleep inducing terpene myrcene.

That Hygge Lifestyle
Back in 2022 we introduced you to the hygge ways. The gist of the hygge lifestyle is to embrace simple little things that bring a feeling of coziness and contentment. Like being wrapped in a warm blanket or sipping on hot chocolate when it’s cold outside. It’s all about enjoying the moment, your comfort, and your well-being. If you need an additional boost to get you into the hygge spirit, we recommend products that contain the terpenes myrcene or linalool – which help provide the chillest of chill so you can melt into comfort.

As everyone knows, exercising is vital to maintaining a healthy well-being. However, finding the motivation to workout during the colder months can be especially challenging. When it comes to exercise, the right bud can help get you in the zone and able to really focus on form. Cannabis has calming effects that can help relieve performance or pre-workout anxiety or assist you through repetitive motions like lifting weights or running. It can also stimulate feel-good brain receptors that mimic endorphins, providing a boost similar to a “runner’s high” that can enhance your endurance and motivation during a workout.

Give Discomfort the Boot
By now we know that sleep, comfort, and exercise are all important factors to improving your mind and body. Equally as important is taking care of those aches and pains that may be holding you back from being your most present, healthy self. One of the main benefits of using cannabis is its ability to help you feel less discomfort. Now, we’re not claiming that cannabis can cure all that ails you, but it sure as heck could help you find comfort – which not only helps you physically but mentally as well.
