Cannabis and recreation have gone hand in hand for as long as people have smoked joints.

But as cannabis-infused products become more affordable and available in a variety of different ways, a whole new field of self-care is being explored by many people.

We all view self-care differently. To some, it's as simple as taking a few minutes in the morning to meditate. Just before the craziness of their day sets in.

To others, self-care may mean relaxing and giving your body the love it needs. Regardless of how you view self-care, there are many ways to integrate Cannabis into your daily self-care practice in wholesome ways.

What Is Cannabis?

Cannabis is a psychoactive substance used mainly in medical treatments and for recreation. Cannabis, also known as weed, marijuana, CBD (Cannabidiol), and many other names, is very popular and can be found in edibles, tinctures, coffee, vapour pens, and so on.

In certain U.S. states, a number of medical problems including chronic depression, glaucoma, and decreased appetite are treated with Cannabis.

Use Cannabis to Reduce Stress

CBD is widely used for relief, stress management, anxiety, epilepsy, acne and pain treatment. It does not produce the euphoric effects that can be experienced with THC making it a better therapeutic and medicinal alternative. While in coronavirus isolation, CBD can be a perfect pain relief when practising self-care.

One of the best ways to take CBD is through tinctures and oils that can be administered directly under the tongue or applied to food or beverages.

Take Your Massage to a New Level With Cannabis

  • You can try cannabis massage if you have a friend or spouse who is keen to spend a relaxed evening with you.
  • A soothing massage with oils infused with cannabinoids will relax the skin and make you feel more alert and healthier.
  • Chronic pain sufferers vouch for the pain-relieving effects of cannabis being infused into their massage oil.
  • CBD and THC function as a tool for deep tissue infiltration, enhancing blood flow to areas affected and helping to restore those that have suffered muscle trauma.
  • Sold as lotions, balms, sprays and oils - skincare products filled with CBD are increasingly becoming more than just a staple of fashion.
  • And if you want them discreetly delivered to your doorstep, you can make use of a cannabis delivery service. Indeed, CBD is a potent antidote that provides various, effective healing qualities.

Use Cannabis as a Nutritional Supplement

Cannabis can also serve as a dietary supplement in the form of hemp seed oils and nuts. You can start by adding hemp milk or seeds to your smoothie.

Recently, dieticians are beginning to view Cannabis as a superfood because it contains many nutrients such as vitamin E, fatty acids, potassium, sodium, zinc, phosphate, magnesium, protein, calcium, and many more.

Use Cannabis to Help You Recover From Workout

Recovery is important for muscle and tissue repair and strength after exercise. Your body has an amazing capacity to take care of itself if you give it enough time to do so.

Beyond eating the right food, staying hydrated, stretching, and sleeping, there's another way to turn the game of healing up a bit. Studies have demonstrated that the use of cannabis can help to substantially alleviate pain. That means you can consider using a lotion with CBD next time you feel very tired and sore after exercising.

Get Better and More Sleep Using Cannabis

Sleep is vital to maintaining our emotional and physical wellbeing, but many adults are finding it difficult to sleep.

Cannabis can help with insomnia and other issues surrounding sleep. The hemp plant has been used as a sleep aid for decades.

If you have trouble sleeping, cannabis can be taken as a sleep-aid even in relatively small doses. Edible cannabis products such as dosed chocolate, cannabis teas, and marijuana snacks are perfect for treating sleep problems as their effects last longer compared to smoking it.

Final Thoughts

If you're not at your best, you can't give your family your best. You can't give anything if your own “tank” is empty. It's time to adopt a self-care regimen and keep your act together, instead of treating your body like an old boot. There's no better way to get this done than with marijuana.

The idea of being in harmony with your body, mind, and environment is all tied to the idea of self-care and doing what makes you feel better.

If it is going to the spa at the end of a busy day, or relaxing with some CBD oil, taking care of yourself should be at the top of your priority list.
