Election Anxiety: 4 Creative Ways To Combat It This Month
The election is less than two weeks away and you may find yourself feeling more anxious than usual. The endless barrage of the news, debates, polls, and even ads and videos you’re seeing online is enough to stress anyone out. You may find yourself worried that your candidate isn’t going to do well, even if it’s out of your control. (But do make sure you vote and get your voice heard!)
If you’re experiencing election anxiety this month, remember that soon the election will (hopefully) be behind us and we can all move on. Until then, here are a few ideas to help you stay relaxed and calm when anxiety strikes.
Marijuana Hangovers Are Real: What You Need To Know
You eat one and then another. After 30 minutes or so of feeling nothing but the need for a tall glass of milk, you devour a couple more of those delectable little boogers. It is somewhere in the middle of a “Seinfeld” binge when the weed starts to kick in. And it keeps on keeping on.
Soon you are as stoned as you’ve ever been in your life. It’s actually a lot of fun, up to the point when you realize that you have to be at work first thing in the morning and the pot brownies are refusing to loosen their grip. Yet you manage to crash out…eventually. But in the morning, that dastardly alarm clock wakes you from a stoned slumber and something just isn’t right.
You’re in haze, a bizarre funk, unlike any you’ve ever experienced. It is difficult to put on socks, and forget about tying your shoes. This, my friends, is a sure sign you have entered the realm of the weed hangover.
How To Choose The Best Cannabis Strain
Cannabis has different strains. Picking the right one is crucial for one to get the feeling that they are looking for. One can choose to go with those that contain THC or the ones that do not have this component such as CBD oil.
Important to note is that cannabis is not legal in most states, and one must bear this in mind before trying to buy any weed product. For countries where the use of cannabis is permissible, it is best to buy from authorized dealers to make sure that the weed bought is good quality and free of harmful substances. Back street dealers tend to lace their product with other substances that can alter the normal functioning of the body.
Does Marijuana Increase Sexual Appetite?
There is some controversy over whether marijuana actually increases sexual appetite. Some believe the herb puts them deeper in the moment and allows the overall sexual experience to become more enjoyable, while others are of the opinion that this perceived enhancement is nothing more than a stoned illusion.
A 2018 CNN piece on the subject from licensed couples therapist Ian Kerner indicates that it’s more likely that pot plays a positive roll in the bedroom.
Although scientific minds are still unsure how marijuana might boost libido, some sex professionals believe the answer is as simple as marijuana giving a person the ability to calm down and get out of their heads.
Female Cannabis Leaders: Why Are There So Few?
The marijuana industry is poised for another leap of growth with the election, an increase of use by seniors and healthy sales during COVID-19. As companies rush to cash in on the trend, few companies are doing it in a way to ensure diversity among leadership by including more women executives.
Attorney David Feldman, a partner at Hiller PC and a leader in the marijuana industry shared his view. “The first active networking group was Women Grow, which also welcomes men to its events. Early on, it was immediately apparent life in cannabis was going to be refreshingly different from many other industries (including Wall Street) with which I have been involved, because of the important, dedicated and leading role of women in the space.
