Cannabis has been used for thousands of years for medicinal and recreational purposes. However, it has become more mainstream in recent years, and people are beginning to recognize the benefits of incorporating cannabis into their daily lives. From using CBD tincture in your morning coffee to taking a few drops before bed, there are many ways to use cannabis in your daily routine.
Cannabis infused products are also becoming more popular as people look for ways to enhance their wellness routines. From body oils and lotions to bath bombs and edibles, there are endless possibilities when incorporating cannabis into your daily life.
Whether you are looking for ways to relax or seeking relief from pain or anxiety, consuming cannabis can positively impact your day-to-day life. You can find the perfect amount of THC or CBD to suit your needs by starting with a low dose and increasing as needed. So, let’s explore how you can use cannabis in your everyday wellness routine.
Why You Should Incorporate Cannabis Into Your Daily Routine
No conversation about daily routines, healthy habits, or wellness would be complete without discussing how cannabis can help.
Endocannabinoids and Body Mindfulness
First, it’s important to understand cannabis interacts with our bodies in a very unique way. We have an endocannabinoid system, which helps maintain balance in the body (a process called homeostasis). The endocannabinoid system is a network of receptors throughout the body that helps to regulate things like pain, inflammation, mood, and appetite.
Cannabis can help enhance the body’s natural production of endocannabinoids. And, while we are only beginning to understand cannabis, there are literally hundreds of cannabinoids and terpenes in this amazing plant with unique therapeutic potential and benefits:
- Cannabis may alleviate stress
- Cannabis may help mental health
- Cannabis may help with pain management
- Cannabis may have anti-inflammatory effects
- Cannabis may boost mindfulness and being in the moment
With research showing that cannabis has the potential to help with all of these things, it’s no wonder people are incorporating it into their daily lives.
How to Use Cannabis In Your Morning Routine
Did you implement your sleep hygiene habits and get a good night’s rest? If not, no worries. We’ll get to that. But morning is here now, the sun’s up, the birds are chirping, and you’ve got things to do, like have a little daily dose of cannabis! Or a lot of cannabis. We’re not judging. Whether you’re a micro-doser or mega-doser, adjust accordingly.
Mornings can be hard on all of us. Sometimes we wake up with our minds already racing a million miles an hour. Other times we can barely get out of bed. Either way, starting your day with some cannabis can help ease you into the day.
Pair a Sativa with Your To-Do List and Morning Beverage
A glance at your To Do List tells you you have a full day ahead. You want to hit the ground running with energy and creativity. A little sativa from Aviation, like Jack Herer or Super Lemon Haze, might be just the thing to pair with that cup of coffee or your favorite morning beverage.
If you’re anxious about your day’s work, try a strain like Blue Dream or Green Crack. These can give you the gentle mental push you need to start your day. If you’re looking for a THC alternative, try a more CBD rich strain like Harlequin or ACDC. If you’re more into tinctures or topicals, start your day with a dropper or two of CBD oil and let it work its magic while you go about your morning routine.
Cannabis microdosing is a great way to start your day. Microdosing means taking a minimal amount of cannabis, usually less than 0.05 grams (or about half a joint). This can help you get the benefits of cannabis without feeling high or impairing your ability to function.
Workout With Cannabis
Whether you’re a morning person or not, working out first thing in the day has some great benefits. Exercising gives you energy, helps clear your mind, and gets your metabolism going for the rest of the day.
If you find it hard to get motivated to work out or are just not a morning person, try working out with cannabis. A little THC can help give you the energy and motivation you need to get moving. A nice pure sativa strain like Durban Poison or a hybrid strain like White Widow can give you the mental push you need to get out the door. If you find yourself needing more of a physical push, try a CBD-rich strain like ACDC or Harlequin.
Cannabis can also help you recover from your workout. A little THC can help reduce pain and inflammation, while CBD can help reduce muscle tension. Try taking a few drops of CBD oil before your workout and then smoking or vaporizing a small amount of cannabis afterward.
Check-in With Your Body
Whether you wake up with a list of things to do or not, checking in with your body and seeing how it’s feeling is essential. So start your day by taking a few deep breaths and paying attention to how your body feels. How are you feeling? Any aches or pains?
If you are tense or stressed, try a topical cannabis balm or lotion on that achy back or creaky knee after a long, hot shower. That always feels good!
How To Use Cannabis In Your Afternoon Routine
Was that the best morning ever? We thought so. Let’s keep it going. You’ve been at work for a couple of hours, and it’s time to….
Take a Break & Hit the Vape
If you sit at work, it’s best to stand and walk around a bit. Sitting is bad for you. Like, really bad. But we know that sometimes you just can’t help it. So if you find yourself stuck at a desk all day, try using a cannabis vape to take a break and clear your head. Grab your vape and head for a 20-minute walk. A few puffs of Blue Dream or Jack Herer should do the trick to get your mind back in the right place for productivity and creativity.
Reset With Cannabis at Lunch
It’s so easy to get sucked into the work stress vortex that it’s no wonder the three-martini lunch became a thing. But that’s not a healthy habit, so it’s not part of this daily routine. But you know what is? More weed!
Check in with how you’re feeling. Are you stressed out and wound up? OK. Go for those CBG gummies you grabbed this morning. CBG is a cannabinoid known for its calming effects.
But what if you’re feeling tired? No worries. You got this. Just hit that Gold Flora Mango Vape for a little giddyup.
Have a Short Smoke Sesh & Meditate
Our minds are clouded by thoughts. We regret what happened earlier and worry about what might happen later, all while missing the only time that matters now: The present. Just close your eyes and connect with your breath. Many meditators believe that cannabis helps them shift their attention and focus inward.
So, if you find yourself having difficulty with meditation, try smoking or vaporizing a small amount of cannabis beforehand. A little THC can help quiet the monkey mind and allow you to focus on the present moment.
Take Another Break After Lunch
Just a friendly reminder. That chair is not your friend, and your mind needs a rest to be at its best! And don’t forget to drink some water!
Try to get up and move around every 20 minutes or so. If you can’t leave your desk, try doing some simple stretches or moving your body side to side.
If you are getting tense, try using a topical cannabis balm on your neck and shoulders. A little THC and CBD can help relieve tension and pain.
How To Use Cannabis In Your Evening Routine
Congratulations. You’re killing it! It’s been a fantastic day, and it’s about to get even better. Time for that evening workout.
Workout with Cannabis (Night-Owl Edition)
It doesn’t really matter what you do; but you need to do something. Yoga, Jiu Jitsu, CrossFit, running, and even a simple walk through the neighborhood all provide the health benefits of exercise.
In Jiu Jitsu and Yoga, many practitioners believe that cannabis improves their creativity and concentration while training and helps with relaxation and recovery after training. An added benefit of exercise in a studio or class setting is social, another vital component of wellness. So, before heading to the studio, take a few puffs of your favorite cannabis strain.
Wind Down with Weed
You had a great workout. Your body feels relaxed. Your mind rests blissfully in the warm afterglow of endorphins. So now’s the time for that Indica you’ve wanted to try. Will it be the Lemon Vuitton by Jet Fuel or maybe Myst by Gold Flora? You could even try a THC or CBD bath bomb to seal the deal and soothe your sore muscles.
Either way, you get that deep relaxation that Indica is known for and some relief from any pain and inflammation you may feel.
We hope you’re keeping up with your hydration as well. We lose a lot of water when we exercise.
Pair a Healthy Dinner with a Cannabis Beverage
You’ve been waiting all day for this. You’re finally home, and it’s time to relax and enjoy a healthy dinner. But what are you going to drink? You deserve something special after the day you’ve had.
We recommend pairing your dinner with a cannabis infused beverage. There are many great options, from CBD-only drinks to those with a little THC.
Practice Sleep Hygiene with Cannabis
It’s an hour before bed. Now’s the time to grab that indica edible or a specialty tincture or tablet in a nighttime formulation like Level Protabs “Lights Out.” These cannabis products are perfect for better sleep.
Now put away your phone, turn off the TV, and relax. Follow your breath and let go of any thoughts running through your head. A good night’s sleep is the perfect end to a healthful day!
Use Cannabis Just for Fun
So that was A LOT of routine. But that’s not all cannabis is for. As Oscar Wilde once said, “Everything in moderation, including moderation.”
Sometimes it’s a good thing to break from routine, to be spontaneous, to let yourself be free. Cannabis is great for that too!
- Take some tincture and commune with nature.
- Roll some blunts to share and check out some live music with friends.
- Split a bottle of cannabis wine with someone special and tour an art museum or gallery.
- Get dabbed out on your fav concentrate and see that sci-fi flick everyone’s raving about.
In the end, as we said, moderation is key. Adding cannabis into everyday life can certainly be great for your well being, but it’s important to understand the difference between creating healthy habits and habit forming behavior.
Use cannabis to supplement a healthy lifestyle, not as a crutch. Likewise, be sure to understand any potential harms and risks, as with anything else.
