New to Medical Marijuana? Fun Activities to Do While Using Cannabis
Word is getting out about the healing benefits of medical marijuana. There are currently over 160,000 Missouri residents with their medical marijuana card, who are enjoying the natural relief that cannabis provides.
If you are new to medical marijuana and the overall sense of wellness that it brings, you might be looking for some things to do while enjoying your medicine. After all, marijuana enhances your mood, increases focus, and can help relieve pain and increase your appetite. Why not take advantage of the way your medicine makes you feel?!
Here are some of our favorite activities to do that can make your medical marijuana experience even more enjoyable:
Get up and go for a walk.
Get the most out of your medical marijuana by getting up and moving. Cannabis naturally enhances the experience of walking by helping reduce pain, elevating your mood, and allowing you to focus on the natural scenery, making your walk more enjoyable. Plus, the endorphins caused by the exercise can elevate your high.
Do something creative.
Make some art. Sit down and finally write that screenplay or novel that’s been brewing in your head. Brainstorm a problem you’ve been meaning to solve. Redecorate your bedroom. Medical marijuana has been shown to boost creativity and enhance “critical divergent thinking.” Get in touch with your imagination and follow wherever it leads.
Explore your inner culinary artist.
Cannabis enhances your sense of smell and taste and fires up your imagination. This is the perfect time to get into the kitchen and use your cannabis-inspired creativity to create a culinary masterpiece. Plan ahead and do the more complicated prep work before enjoying your medicine. That way, you’ll be ready to enjoy the fun part of cooking.
Go see a comedy show.
There’s an old saying that laughter is the best medicine. We disagree. Cannabis PLUS laughter is the best medicine. Find a comedy club in your area OR a locally produced improv, sketch, or stand-up performance. You can usually find shows in your area by simply Googling your city name and the word “comedy”. Then, kick back, relax, and lose yourself to laughter.
Go down a YouTube rabbit hole.
If you’re looking to kill some time while enjoying your medicine at home, medical marijuana is a great companion for going down a YouTube rabbit hole.
Visit YouTube, then search for a topic you’re interested in or just click on whatever video pops up on the home screen. Then click on one of the recommended videos that appear on the right. Continue by clicking on another recommended video and go along for the ride, enjoying whatever dumb, silly, or informative clips come your way.
Get lost in a video game.
Marijuana and video games may be the world’s most perfect combination. Marijuana enhances your video game experience and vice versa. The way THC affects your brain’s cannabinoid receptors enhances focus and allows you to get fully immersed in the game that you’re playing. If you are already someone who enjoys video games, you owe it to yourself to do some gaming once your medicine kicks in.
Enhance your meditation practice.
Cannabis may be ideal for enhancing your meditation practice. The increased focus and lessened anxiety medical marijuana promotes can help you remain in the moment, and take your meditation and relaxation to a higher level (pun intended).
NOTE: Meditation is about being focused in the present moment, and observing your experience as it is happening. Be mindful of your dose and don’t dab yourself into a state of unawareness.
Get it on.
If you and your partner are both cannabis patients, your likelihood of an intimate encounter increases while enjoying medical marijuana. As a matter of fact, a recent study published in the journal Sexual Medicine indicates that marijuana use leads to more frequent and more satisfying orgasms. If that’s not a ringing endorsement to get your medical card, I don’t know what is.
Listen to music.
Marijuana just makes music better. According to Dr. Jörg Fachner, that’s because cannabis acts as a “psycho-acoustic enhancer.” This means that, while experiencing the effects of marijuana, your sense of hearing is intensified, and your focus increases, causing you to enjoy music on an entirely different level.
So, next time you take your medicine, crank up the volume, tune out the world, and go wherever the music takes you.
Do whatever you want.
Hey - it’s your medicine, and your prerogative. Do whatever you want while exploring how your life is better with medical marijuana. The effects of cannabis make life more enjoyable, all around. As long as you use your medicine responsibly, you are free to do anything you like. Enjoy relief on your own terms.
