But 420 is almost here, which is always reason to celebrate! Corinne Tobias of Wake and Bake is having another wonderful giveaway. I get 25 entries for a blog post, so here it is! I have learned so much medicinal wisdom from this woman, and this plant! I am so grateful for both!
Here is her blogpost:
How to have a Healthy 420 + Giveaway !!When 420 comes around, people usually envision fat blunts, packed pipes, and a cabinet filled with a neverending munchie buffet. The result? Getting couch locked from indulging too much, an upset stomach from all the potato chips, and waking up the next day in a haze.
And let’s be real- most of us still have to go to work, drive, take care of a family, and be a functional adult.
You know that I wholeheartedly believe cannabis is an amazing medicinal plant but there are consequences to having too much of a good thing.
I mean, there’s no prize for smoking the most blunts or eating a cookbook worth of edibles, right?
If there is, mine must still be in the mail.
You can celebrate 420 and still keep it healthy
My favorite way to self-medicate with cannabis is through microdosing.
Cannabis has something called the biphasic effect- if you take a low dose of cannabis, you get one effect but if you take a higher dose, you lose that effect and start getting negative side effects.
A lot of people think that if you’re not getting the effect you’re looking for with cannabis, you should take more.
As both a cannabis coach and someone who uses cannabis daily, I always recommend starting low and slow. Take the smallest dose of cannabis first, and slowly work your way up until you find your “sweet spot”.
When you microdose, you get the desirable effects of cannabis (calmness, clearer thinking, inflammation relief) without the downsides (munchies, too high to function, paranoia, anxiety).
I’ve written a bit more about microdosing in this blog post, if you want a quick dive into the science behind it.
Plan your #Healthy420
Binging on snacks and joints is not the only way to celebrate 420. You can plan for an awesome day by scheduling some self-care or whipping up some magic in the kitchen.
Here are some ideas to throw into your 420 plans:
- Take a yoga class or schedule some time to meditate. Here are some strains to help with that.
- Try a new recipe. Here are my easiest Wake and Bake recipes.
- If you’re making one of your staple recipes but want to adjust the dosage, use this dosage calculator.
- To celebrate 420 without the high, go for CBD oil. Here’s a recipe to DIY your CBD oil.
