How to Handle the Pot-Over

2019-06-10T16:04:41+00:00July 19th, 2018|

Darlings! As you experiment and expand on your cannabis knowledge, I’m sure there’ll come a day when you have a little too much fun. Maybe you’re trying out an edibles recipe and seem to have overindulged, or maybe your pal comes over with a party joint – either way, sometimes the next day you can experience what I call the PotOver. Kinda like a hangover but with cannabis. Unlike a hangover you won’t feel like you have the flu, nor will you want to die, but the front of your brain might feel a little ‘soggy’. You might want to stay in bed, or consume large amounts of cold mac ‘n cheese, or give yourself a rub down in the shower with a coffee scrub – whatever works! The PotOver happens, and luckily for us cannabis lovers it’s no big deal. Think cool shower, hot tea, maybe some semi-vigorous exercise….basically whatever you think will help you feel better with no bad effects, do that. Again, the PotOver is no big deal but can be weird, so don’t worry, just take care of you!

Managing Mental Traffic with Cannabis

All of my life my engine has run fast. Don’t know about you, but I’m one of those people that has to fight being 3 steps ahead in the conversation. I’ve had to learn to slow down and listen, as well as slow down and wait….Point is, my pal cannabis has been very helpful here. I’m not talking about getting all high and spacing out, I’m talking about the wonderful soothing clam that cannabis can provide. I’ve been able to breathe, take a minute, and truly listen now that my brain has calmed down a bit. I have also included daily mindfulness meditation as a part of my Mental Traffic Management plan, and that plus the Indica cannabis I use has equaled WAY better everything. Cannabis is not a miracle, and I do need to pay attention to how relaxed I get, but if you like me are a hyperactive nut case, cannabis will help fer sure!!
