Fun Summer Activities to do While Enjoying Medical Marijuana in Missouri
Summertime is here, and there is no better time of year to enjoy the benefits of having a Missouri medical marijuana card. Cannabis is medicine, and this season is the perfect time to take advantage of all the ways cannabis improves your quality of life.
Medical marijuana is great for reducing anxiety. Cannabis increases focus and promotes a feeling of overall wellness, allowing you to cut loose and enjoy all the activities summer has to offer. It’s a great tool when it comes to unwinding and allowing your mind to let go of the stress that goes along with work, relationships, and home life.
Cannabis is also effective at treating chronic pain. If pain is holding you back from getting up and getting moving, medical marijuana may be the key to getting back your quality of life and making this a summer you’ll never forget.
Here are some activities to do in Missouri this summer while enjoying the legal, natural relief of medical marijuana:
Go For a Nature Walk
Enjoy the sunshine by getting out and moving this summer. Cannabis can enhance the experience of walking by naturally reducing pain and putting you in a better mood. Medical marijuana increases focus, allowing you to take in the natural scenery, making your walk more enjoyable.
As an added bonus, the endorphins caused by the exercise can elevate your high. Summer is the perfect time to find a nearby lake or hiking trail, or simply explore your own neighborhood. Happy trails!
Go to a Music Festival
Marijuana makes music better. Enjoying cannabis heightens your senses, which allows music to affect you in a whole new way. According to Dr. Jörg Fachner, that’s because cannabis acts as a “psycho-acoustic enhancer.” This means that your sense of hearing is intensified while experiencing the effects of marijuana.
Medical marijuana creates an increased sense of focus, allowing you to enjoy music on an entirely different level. Combine this with the feeling of being out in the sunshine and the communal nature of enjoying music with a community of people who are vibing along with you makes cannabis and a music festival the perfect combination.
Plan a Cannabis Picnic
One of the best ways to take advantage of the warm summer weather is to plan a nice, relaxing picnic and enjoy some sunshine. Picnics are nice and relaxing on their own, but when you include the natural relief that medical marijuana provides, they can be even more relaxing.
Choose the right location, invite your favorite cannabis-friendly companions, pack some delicious treats and enjoy a relaxing afternoon. If you need some help planning, we’ve got you covered with some tips on how to plan the perfect picnic with the help of medical marijuana.
Get Some Exercise
If you’re thinking about getting in shape this summer, cannabis may be the workout buddy you need to help you smash your fitness goals. Medical marijuana helps relieve pain, reduce inflammation, get the rest you need for recovery, and increases your focus during physical activity.
Of course, you’ll want to make sure you aren’t doing any dangerous activities while impaired. If you’re concerned about making sure you don’t overdo it, check out our guide to micro-dosing medical marijuana for fitness.
Check Out a Movie in the Park
Movies and marijuana are already a great combination. Something about the increased focus and relaxation allows you to get into the sensory experience of cinema in an entirely different way.
During the summer, many cities offer outdoor movies in the park. St. Louis’s Sprout & About has a guide for several outdoor movie options this summer and Kansas City has a summertime Cinema Under the Stars program. Most other cities have similar options that you can usually find by contacting your local parks department or Chamber of Commerce. As a bonus, if you’re not into the movie, you can always just lean back and gaze at the stars that fill the nighttime sky.
Do Some Outdoor Yoga
Cannabis and yoga are a near-perfect fit. When you look at the pain relieving and focus-intensifying factors that medical marijuana provides, it just makes sense that more and more people are combining marijuana with their yoga practice.
This summer is a great time to bring your yoga mat outdoors and enjoy the combination of zen and sunshine. Adding some nature to this already potent mind-body combination can create a deeper connection between your mind, body, and the world around you.
Do Whatever You Want This Summer
Here’s the deal - it’s your medicine, your summer, and your prerogative. Do whatever you want to do while exploring how your life is better with cannabis. The effects of medical marijuana make life more enjoyable. As long as you are making responsible choices when it comes to using your medicine, enjoy summer on your own terms.
