Speaking of enhancing everyday life, September marks the end of Summer, which means back to school, back to work, back to “routine”. Given the year, the concept of a routine (goodbye morning commute, hello no pants to the “office”) has shifted and with all the stressors this year has brought, it’s also been challenging to maintain any semblance of normalcy. If you’re craving that consistency, there are so many ways that incorporating cannabis into your day to day can help enhance the sometimes mundane motions of getting though life.
Read on for a breakdown of three ways cannabis can help improve your routine.
The wake and bake
After a Summer of slower days, the most challenging thing about September is sustaining the energy for all the hustle and bustle of “normal” life. Sometimes, no amount of coffee can help and it can be hard to find and maintain that energy – enter cannabis. There are two things to keep in mind when looking to weed to enhance energy.
The first is the type of strain. Sativa dominant strains often have lower doses of CBD and higher doses of THC and are most commonly associated with producing a cerebral or “mind high.” Other common effects include feeling uplifted and alert. Sativa strains are often recommended for daytime usage, perfect for social gatherings or physical activity.
The second is terpenes. Terpenes play a pivotal role in their contribution to an energized high. As a refresher, terpenes are secreted in the tiny resin glands of the cannabis flowers – the same glands that produce cannabinoids, like THC and CBD. Terpenes are aromatic oils that colour cannabis assortments with a distinctive flavour like citrus, berry, mint, and pine. While some terpenes may complement the high, terpenes themselves are non-intoxicating. Various terpenes can promote a feeling of happiness, relaxation and energy so when browsing through Black Rabbit’s online dispensary, look for the strains that have citrus, pine and peppery notes in their aroma profiles for an energetic high.

Although research is limited, a few cases show that THC could have positive effects on attention-deficit disorder (ADD). The results generally show that cannabis could mitigate problems with inattention and lead to higher levels of productivity. According to Metro, a German study revealed 22 out of 30 patients “elected to discontinue their prescribed pharmaceutical drugs and continue solely with the medicinal cannabis because they reported to have improved concentration and reduced impulsivity.”

Sleep is crucial for optimal performance throughout the day but sometimes sleep doesn’t always come easy.
We know that CBD and THC are each responsible for different physical and psychoactive effects. Head over to our Cannabinoids 101 blog post for a full breakdown, but typically, thanks to THC’s sedating effects, strains with high levels of THC can reduce the time it takes to fall asleep. It’s important to note that THC doesn’t actually put you to sleep, rather it’s a sedative and has properties that encourage sleep.
THC’s ability to help us fall asleep faster allows us to spend more time in the “deep sleep stage” which increases regeneration and contributes to higher energy levels the following day. CBD helps too but in the sense that it may just be reducing symptoms like anxiety which allows an individual to relax easier, so that sleep can takeover.
Consuming marijuana (via inhalation, edible consumption takes longer) an hour before your usual bedtime is prime time to set you up for a solid night of sleep since the high will last for about three to four hours. Physiology varies from individual to individual of course, so best to experiment with what timing is optimal for you.
