Remember to use a strain like Shapeshifter or Blue Dream to help you ease into meditation and the wide-open spaces of your creative mind.

3. Inspired By Nature

They say the best medicine is nature – so why not grab a little herb, and go on a beautiful nature trail, hike or experience the outdoors safely, while enjoying a puff, toke or edible?

The easiest way to keep a few edibles with you for a walk or hike is to pop a few weed gummies in a ziplock bag.

Once you arrive at your destination, pop one or two THC gummies and make sure you’ve got a nice long trail ahead of you.

Have a dog you can bring? Even better! Bring your pooch, your hooch, and let all the stress melt away!

Here’s a fantastic weed edible gummy bear recipe:

4. A Good Old Fashioned Nap

Remember when you were a kid and you despised taking a nap? Now it’s all the rage in a good way.

Napping can do a few things.

One – it can help you rest your mind and body so that when you wake up you feel rested and relaxed.

Two – it can help you relieve pain, feel great, and it shows your body that you’re listening to it. Many of us are go-go-go – so sometimes practice slow-slow-slow!

Need a little help falling asleep? A great strain to incorporate into your weed edibles to help you have a nice little nap is a Hindu Kush strain.

Make a nice cup of hot chocolate with some weed-infused milk. Then close your eyes, rest and drift away.

5. Netflix and Chill

Seriously – I don’t mean it that way, and I personally don’t think Netflix and Chill should mean what it actually means.

Today what I mean is- put on your favorite Netflix show, get into your pyjamas, and enjoy some couch lock while you just relax and destress.

By yourself.

Infused a little Northern Lights into your weed edible, grab the remote, a nice tall glass of water, and slide into zen.

Why not try making a fun little weed edible like nachos?
