For those of you reading this with a wine hangover, I commend you. Knocking down a full day of work or a full day of kids in a foggy, nauseous state is brutal and no longer necessary. Might I suggest cannabis instead? The upside is that you will wake up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed the next morning. That's right, no hangover.
What to smoke: Sativa vs Indica strains
Sativa: (Daytime) uplifting and creative with cerebral effects
Indica: (Evening) sedative and relaxing with full-body effects
Hybrids: A mix of both indica and sativa strains
Cannabis is strain-specific, meaning there are hundreds of different types to choose from. Some cannabis will make you laugh while others will make you sleep. Think tequila vs wine. When trying out a new strain, I seek guidance from my trusted budtenders. Cozy up to yours, make friends and ask questions. It's the best way to get what you want from your cannabis experience.
Tip: I buy small amounts so I am not stuck with cannabis that doesn't suit me. (see "Questions to ask your local budtender" in my upcoming post)
How to use it:
This isn't 1993. Plus, I roll terrible looking joints. Instead, I choose to vape my cannabis, which is a much healthier way to get a good high. The vape pen or vaporizer can be carried in your purse and works with clean little cartridges of oil. When discretion is key, vape pens are the way to go.
Proceed with caution:
Ladies, this is not your mother's "grass". This is the queen's cannabis, and it can knock your Choo's off if you aren't careful. The strains are strong and it doesn't take much to get high. Start slowly...and if you find you've gone too far, use a CBD spray to counteract your high. It works. And remember, no one has ever died from a cannabis overdose!
