Cannabis is an incredible aid to comfort and relaxation. Whether you like to smoke, vape, ingest, or use topically, cannabis has a form that can give you respite. Find out more about different products and how to use them to rejuvenate yourself.
Terpenes for Easing Symptoms
Inhaling smoke from the cannabis flower is the best way to reap the benefits of terpenes when used in an dry herb vaporizer. Every terpene has a specific boiling point that makes the symptomatic benefits of that terpene most effective. Find a boiling point chart here. B-caryophyllene is highly beneficial for reducing inflammation and easing stomach upset. Myrcene is helpful in reducing muscle tension and pain. Other terpenes are more emotionally supportive like linalool and limonene, both of which are effective for reducing anxiety and symptoms of depression.
Finding comfort by inhaling the flower is effective for fast relief from immediate symptoms. You may have to try several strains with various terpenes to find the best benefit to you. Read more about the “entourage effect” to understand why strains act differently for each individual.
Edibles for Long Lasting Effects
Edibles as a delivery system for cannabis provide a more body heavy sensation that can ease discomfort for 4 to 8 hours. You can find many varieties of edibles like Verdes own hard candy, cookies, fudge, crackers, and coconut oil. Remember to start low and go slow. You can always eat more if you want a greater effect.
If you have dietary concerns like gluten or sugar, consider other edible products like tinctures. Tinctures are absorbed under the tongue, or sublingually. Another alternative are pure cannabis oils, which can be encapsulated to your preferred milligram serving.
A great way to gain comfort without the euphoric effects of cannabis is to use it topically. Topicals can be used as often as you need with no worry of intoxication. Verdes Soaking Salts are designed to increase the restorative influences of a soothing bath. Compound your well being by using Verdes Salve directly on body aches afterward.
Layering for Optimal Effects
Once you know how different products work for you, you can combine them to reach your desired level of comfort. This is called “layering.” Layering is often the key to gaining sustained control over your symptoms. Though everyday is unique and may require regular adjustments to maintain the same level of comfort.
Whether your inhaling, ingesting, or using cannabis topically, you should take time to focus on your well being and make your comfort a priority.
