Heart and Hand
  • Give yourself a massage, starting with hands, feet, scalp, and face. Depending on your medical cannabis dose and timing, certain cultivars may assist with relaxationreleasing stress and muscle tension.
  • Treat yourself to a special meal and eat it with no distractions. Focus on the experience of taste, smell, and if you’re adventurous the feel of itSee #9 for cooking with cannabis ideas.
  • Curl up on the sofa with a hot cocoa or tea and watch a funny or silly movie. Pile on the pillows and blankets to get extra cozy and laugh those “brrrr’s” away!
