MANAGE HOLIDAY STRESS & ANXIETY
The holidays are a joyful time of the year, but that doesn’t mean they don’t come with their fair share of stress and anxiety. Getting ready for the holidays, hosting family, finding gifts for the family, stressing over the cost, and staying cheerful during a time that has gotten a lot of us down can be challenging. Cannabis can be a great addition to your routine to manage your stress and anxiety this year. Cannabis cannabinoids directly interact with the endocannabinoid system with the goal to maintain homeostasis. Stress and anxiety are caused by an imbalance of hormones, when you ingest cannabis the cannabinoids work to balance these hormones, which may leave you in a more relaxed state. Leave the stress behind this year and enjoy the time with your family.
STAY ACTIVE WITH CANNABIS
This year, cannabis is your accountability partner. It is hard to stay on top of your health and wellness routine during this time of the year when holiday treats are calling your name. We aren’t saying not to indulge, because especially this year we all deserve an extra treat, but that doesn’t mean dropping your health routine. Staying active boosts your natural endorphins, also known as the “happy hormone”. Cannabis can be a great addition to your fitness routine and may just give you the extra boost to get going after indulging. Tis the season to add some cannabis fitness routine, here are just a few ways to do just that:
- Boost your relaxation & mindfulness with cannabis in your Yoga class
- Microdose before a long run
- Use cannabis for muscle soreness and pain after a killer workout
- As a post workout treat
