Dear Stress, It’s Over. Love, Me

Your custom stress relief regimen

Why do we stress? We stress when a situation is out of our control. We’re unsure of the outcome. We prepare our best, and once we have done all possible to influence the future, we wait—and stress. But what if you could relieve stress with cannabis?

Stress develops as a result of worrying about the outcome of hypothetical situations. It causes sleeping problems, difficulty with assessing situations rationally, and overall, negative feelings.  This uneasy cloud that engulfs our thoughts solves zero problems. Alleviating stress allows clearer thinking and, more importantly, promotes health.

“I love going to the doctor’s office,” said nobody ever. According to the American Psychological Association, “75 to 90 percent of all physician office visits are for stress related ailments and complaints. Stress is linked to the six leading causes of death: heart disease, cancer, lung ailments, accidents, cirrhosis of the liver and suicide.”

A new way to destress

With the big picture presented bluntly, stress elimination becomes a challenge we must solve. Today’s educated innovators have made incredible discoveries about cannabis’ healing properties, and we couldn’t be happier to learn we can relieve stress with cannabis.

Although prescription medications come to mind first for most people, when it comes to stress treatment, it’s time to shift our thinking. Yoga and meditation naturally relieve stress, but what else? Cannabis to the rescue!

With the surplus of methods to consume cannabis and multiple varieties to select, we’re here to point you in the right direction and help you relieve stress with cannabis.
