10 Cannabis Products That Are Vital For Your Self-Care
No matter how busy your life gets with work, friends, family, and relationships, it's beyond important to remember to hit the pause button. "Me time" is vital for your mental health, and discovering ways to promote a healthy self-care routine that will improve your mind, body, and spirit, should be a priority.
By using products that contain non-psychoactive cannabidiol (CBD), or a low dose of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), you can improve your health while promoting internal stability. Because CBD and THC work synergistically with the body's endocannabinoid system, using products rich with these cannabinoids can help balance your mood, alleviate pain, and provide you with the energy you need to be your best self.
Focus on self-care inside and out with these 10 cannabis and hemp products. Keep in mind that some of these items are only available in states where medicinal and recreational use is legal, but you can also order some products online.
One of the easiest ways to treat yourself is to make a superfood smoothie with fresh organic fruit, hemp hearts, Greek yogurt, and cannabis. I love using THC-infused Mondo Powder because it melts into smoothie ingredients instantly and has a pleasant creamy taste with a slight hint of cacao and vanilla. Think of a protein powder, but mixed with cannabis.
Calm your mind, relieve anxiety, and feel great with this fast-acting edible that hits the body within 15 minutes. Designed for precise dosing, each jar comes with a 5-milligram scoop that can be easily split in half if you're looking for a micro-dose.
Mondo Powder is also low in calories and has been made to preserve the native plant terpenes that offers many health benefits, including helping aid anxiety. If you live in California, click here to find a list of current retailers.
