No matter what job you have or where you live, stress seems like it’s become a constant part of life. It might stem from your commute, your family, or something else entirely, but it’s always there, lurking. There are many healthy ways to deal with stress. Some people turn to exercise or meditation, while others take a hot bath, keep a journal, or talk to a professional. These are all excellent ways to help calm you down and keep your stress levels under control, but did you know that cannabis can actually be a potent way to help you kick stress out of your life for good?

Combatting Stress with Microdosing

Everyone’s body chemistry is different, but a recent study has shown that small doses of THC can help calm the body’s response to stressful situations. The practice of taking very small amounts of THC is called microdosing. This is a great way to get the benefits of THC without the highs that might make accomplishing daily tasks difficult.

Figuring Out What Works

How everyone’s body reacts to cannabis is slightly different. What works for your friend may not have any benefit for you. That’s why it’s important to try new experiences slowly and to work through one product at a time. Maybe keep a record in an excel sheet or a journal of how different doses and products make you feel.

How to Unwind with Cannabis

Even if you don’t want to get super technical or track doses, some products have been created to enhance things you might already do to relax. For instance, you can try cannabis bath bombs and bath salts to elevate a soothing soak in the tub. Getting a massage? Why not help your muscles relax even more with a topical CBD gel or lotion?
