Cannabis, CBD, and Your Environment
At home on the couch? On a nature trail? At a concert? A restaurant? How does the setting you are in affect your cannabis or CBD experience? There are many things within your control that can impact your cannabis experience. Some cannabis users assert that environmental factors – such as the setting in which they enjoyed their cannabis – play a role.
Cannabis, CBD, and Setting
Researchers since the 1960s have believed that setting (or environment) plays a crucial role in the cannabis experience. The setting not only pertains to a person’s location but also its relative safety and comfort.
Your location, whether you’re in a crowded space, out in nature, or at home on your couch, can greatly impact your cannabis or CBD experience and ability to achieve your desired goals.
For some users, if crowded spaces make them feel anxious, make the conscious decision to avoid large crowds altogether while using cannabis. Many CBD users may be inclined to use the product in the midst of daily activities to help calm nerves and reduce anxiety. Others may only feel the need to take it before bed to promote better sleep. CBD is a product that can often be used to enhance whatever setting you may find yourself in.
Because of the genetic diversity in both cannabis strains and human beings, the effects of the plant are incredibly individualized, varying from person to person.
What can you do?
Being aware of your surroundings and related moods may enable you to determine which environmental factors work best for you while using cannabis.
If you’re relatively new to using cannabis or CBD, it’s important to gain comfort and familiarity before experimenting in public or with physically or socially intensive activities.
Ensuring that you experiment in a safe and trusted environment is key.
Once you learn to enjoy safely in a trusted environment, then it’s easy to add additional environmental variables (systematically) as you gain more experience.
The general rule of thumb, if you learn to enjoy in a safe and comfortable environment, it’s easy to extend your enjoyment into social settings and gatherings. If it’s difficult to enjoy in your trusted environment, then likely it will be difficult to enjoy around others.
So, how can you measure the impact of your environment on your cannabis and CBD experiences? Can you alter your environment to optimize your desired cannabis goals?
