It’s that time of year when people realize they may have overindulged during the holiday season, and work to make some positive lifestyle changes! Whether your version of ‘too much partying’ means a few too many drinks or an extra serving or three of mashed potatoes & gravy at family dinners, we know how easy it can be to overdo it during the holidays. Dockside is here to help! With products that can both help you get your swerve on AND feel good the morning after, here are some of the products & tips we love to recommend*, based on common resolutions…
“I want to exercise more.”
Smoking weed before you work out has the potential to help with endurance and pain management alike. Smoking weed after you work out can potentially help with reducing inflammation, and could help your muscles to recover & bounce back more quickly! A nice zazzy sativa (along the lines of Doc & Yeti‘s Red Headed Stranger, Artizen’s Allen Wrench, or Kiona’s Nigerian Haze) can be perfect to help get your blood flowing and your body going. Alternatively, topicals like Fairwinds’ Flow or Agrijuana’s FlexAll 420 could be applied pre-or-post workout, in order to help make exercising more comfortable! We also love the Body Buzz bath salts from Green Revolution – they’re in a base of Epsom salts, which is a classic sore muscle remedy. Fairwinds’ Recharge capsules could be a fabulous workout buddy as well! The caffeine used in the formula could be beneficial for boosting energy levels and promoting mental focus.
“I resolved to quit smoking.”
A recent study shows that CBD can be very useful when it comes to quelling nicotine cravings, reducing anxiety, and helping with attentional bias (when a person’s cravings are triggered by certain cues, such as saying the word “cigarette” or seeing other people smoking). Substitution can be a very effective way to quit smoking for a lot of people… and what’s more similar to a cigarette than a joint?! For those who may have concerns regarding sobriety, CBD joints could be an option. CBD vape cartridges could also be useful for some people! Something like Fairwinds’ PTSfree capsules could possibly help with nicotine withdrawal symptoms, as well.
“I’m hoping to reduce my alcohol consumption.”
Many people attempt to cut back on the alcohol they drink by avoiding situations where drinking will be going on. Fortunately, with the legalization of gifting cannabis, you can now just bring buds to those gatherings in lieu of booze! Another great substitution could be replacing your beer with weed beverages like Olala, Legal Sodas, or Happy Apple – you can consume these beverages as-is, or even dilute them like a cocktail. For folks who prefer their drinks in the form of a shot, dabbing quality concentrates can be a great solution! We at Dockside all know that good tasty dab can be as potent and flavorful as a shot of whiskey!
