Even though you may be using it to relieve pain, discomfort or other symptoms of a medical disorder or illness, you can add to your experience by pairing cannabis products with fun activities. And one of the great things about consuming cannabis is that it’s a year-round activity. And fall is no exception! If anything, this season may just be one of the best for cannabis consumption.
Here are some awesome ways to partake this fall:
Carve / Decorate Pumpkins
This is an especially great activity for those using cannabis to treat stress or anxiety. The motions involved in pumpkin carving / decorating can be very relaxing thanks to the repetition and clear end goal. Furthermore, this is a way to unleash your creativity and just have fun!
Just be careful with any sharp tools though. Most people don’t have any problems at all handling these items while high, but everyone is different. If you know your dexterity and safety-awareness isn’t the same while you’re under the influence on marijuana, it might be best to leave the actual carving to someone else. You can always help scoop out the pumpkin “guts” and / or decorate the outside!
Go for an Autumn Walk
Fall weather is ideal in Arizona. The summer heat fades away and leaves cooler, comfortable temperatures in its wake. Many people start decorating for the season, making for some great sights to see! Going for a walk after cannabis consumption is a great way to experience it all, thanks to certain senses being enhanced. Besides, if you’re one to get a little paranoid or anxious while high, a walk is a fantastic way to calm you down and provide some enjoyable distractions. And we all know there’s nothing like those epic Arizona sunsets!
Bake Fall Goodies
Who doesn’t enjoy a nice slice of pie during fall? Who doesn’t enjoy eating while using cannabis? Baking a pumpkin pie for yourself (and your friends) is the perfect way to celebrate fall. If you’re feeling more ambitious, you can even try making your own candy corn (check out Pinterest for some easy-to-follow recipes). Then when you’re done, you’ll have some great fall treats to enjoy!
Just a note of caution though– for those using cannabis products to treat more serious illnesses like cancer or other conditions that may affect your diet, it’s important to talk with your doctor first about what kind of goodies you can and can’t have this fall season. The good news though is that even for stringent diets, sweets and pastries are usually still acceptable in moderation.
Try on Halloween Costumes
A lot of people find that when they’re high, they feel more creative than usual. So, why not seize the opportunity to figure out your Halloween costume for this year? And instead of going to the store and trying on the same old costumes that everyone gets year after year, try using your boosted creativity to make your own at home. By doing this, you can be productive and have fun at the same time!
Clean Your House
It may sound unpleasant and tedious, but being under the influence of marijuana is actually the perfect time to get manual chores done. While on cannabis, your brain tends to be more receptive to ongoing repetitive tasks, and you may actually find them more enjoyable. Besides, living in a clean environment will easily help with whatever illness or disorder you may be using cannabis for. It’s just less stressful!
