10 Ways Cannabis Makes The Holiday Season More Fun

10 Reasons Cannabis Makes the Holiday Season Better

We all experience the stress of daily life: paying bills, getting stuck in traffic, caring for kids or aging parents, working long hours. The holiday season can add

The holiday season is meant to be filled with joy, candy canes, and more – but it comes with a whole new type of stress from traveling, holiday gift shopping, picking your relatives up from the airport, or baking an endless supply of baked goods.

Everyone is susceptible to holiday stress. But according to research discussed by the American Psychological Association, women experience more holiday stress as they often shoulder the burden of cooking holiday meals and decorating the home. Make sure to give the women in your life some extra love this holiday season.

If you are looking for a cannabis related gift to show some appreciation for the women in your life, you’ll want to read Jointly’s recent report about the types of cannabis products that female Jointly users rate the highest.

Here are 10 reasons purposeful cannabis consumption can make your holiday season better:

1. Sleep Better with Cannabis

Studies show that sleep deprivation[1] and stress go hand and hand. Sleep deprivation can impact your endocannabinoid system such that you feel more stressed out. Additionally, stress can negatively impact your sleep quality.

Cannabis products help many individuals sleep better and longer. One of the main reasons people use cannabis for sleep is that it helps them fall asleep faster. Many people find products high in CBD, CBN, or THC are highly effective at improving their sleep. You can experiment with different products or cannabinoids (and record your experiences on the Jointly app) to find out which combination works best for you.

2. Relieve Stress with a Cannabis-Infused Bath

A cannabis-infused bath is another great way to beat holiday stress. Your body will soak in the cannabinoids while your mind unwinds in the hot water. One interesting thing to note is that topical THC products won’t get you high—to learn why, check out our article on different cannabis ingestion methods. However, topical cannabinoids may help you relieve mild aches and pains, not to mention help you unwind after a stressful day.

3. Cannabis and CBD Can Ease Aches and Pains

Another great reason to use cannabis or CBD during the holiday season is for their gentle pain-relieving properties. The symptoms of holiday stress are often expressed as body aches andFriends on the beach with a firepains, but a purposeful dose of CBD or cannabis can relieve aches and pains.

4. Improve Your Appetite with Cannabis

Sometimes, stress can have a negative impact on our appetite. If you are feeling stressed about juggling all the cooking and shopping, you might find your appetite is less than normal. Luckily, cannabis is highly effective at stimulating your appetite so you can enjoy all your favorite holiday treats.

5. Boost Creativity with Cannabis

In small amounts, cannabis can boost creativity. Don’t see how creativity can improve your holiday season? Maybe if you take a small dose of an edible, you will find yourself immersed in that fantasy game you are playing with your nieces and nephews.

6. Cannabis Can Improve Social Experiences

The holidays are for spending quality time with family and friends. Cannabis is great for improving social experiences because it helps people relax and connect.

7. Improve Work Efficiency with Cannabis

With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, you might find that you need to work more efficiently to get everything done. Try a CBD product to keep you energized and focused on your daily tasks.

8. Use Cannabis In Your Favorite Desserts

The holidays can bring out your sweet tooth. Fruitcakes, candy canes, eggnog, and gingerbread houses—why not make adult versions of your favorite desserts and infuse them with cannabis?

9. Enjoy Better Meditation Sessions

We often get so caught up with prepping for the holidays that we forget to step back and enjoy what the holiday season is all about – time with the ones we love.woman hugging dog outside

Meditating is a great way to clear our mind so we can be more present with our loved ones. It is also linked with other positive benefits like promoting concentration and elevating mood. Try meditating while high to super-charge your mindfulness sessions.

10. Increase Your Energy Levels with Cannabis

Some cannabis strains contain terpenes like limonene and pinene that can boost your mood and energize your mind. Look for strains with specific terpenes found in Sativa-type strains to help give you that extra boost this holiday season.
