Not all days go as planned. Sometimes you wake up late and get stuck in an hour traffic. Other days your boss will not leave you alone. And then there are those days that seem like they will never end. At some point you’ve become curious about weed and what strains will help you relax. With a surplus of options picking something can seem daunting.
When choosing a strain know that you are in control of the situation. When you smoke set yourself up for success.
If you want to be productive when you smoke we suggest setting up a workstation and write a to-do list. Get the most simple task on that list complete and then light up.
Sometimes you just want to tune out any ‘work’ that needs to be done and drift. If this is your desire set up a relaxing spot and listen to some music undisturbed. Put your phone in airplane mode, smoke something relaxing and close your eyes.
Whatever your needs are remember you are always in control of the situation. Consume responsibly and know the dosages you are taking.
Depending on the time of day your needs may vary. Sometimes you need something to get you through the day and others you need something just to knock you out. This guide to relaxing strains will start with a morning strain that will start your day on the right foot. A couple of hybrid strains that will help you drift through the day with ease. Lastly, a couple indicias that will boost your creativity or put you to bed. Life can be stressful, don’t let it get to you. We are here to help you #discoveryourbliss
