Top Cannabis Products to Combat Stress During the Holidays
Whether you love your family to pieces or you simply tolerate the holidays around the table with them, you’re bound to get stressed at some point. Holidays are great for spending quality time with family and taking a break from everyday life, but they can also be a source of stress and anxiety for many people. If you’re looking for a way to keep your cool this Thanksgiving, try these cannabis products to combat stress.

These products aren’t for getting high discreetly to enjoy your mashed potatoes even more. Instead, they are meant to help you keep a clear mind and body during even the most controversial of dinner topics.
Cannabis products for stress
Most of our suggestions are low in THC to avoid getting users high. The goal is to provide a sense of calm and relaxation without sending you into space or causing your aunt to ask if you’re on the weed again.
Additionally, many contain high levels of CBD because of its stress-relieving effects.
Add a Fairwinds capsule to your daily supplement routine and you’ll be all set for a relaxed Thanksgiving. These capsules have a 1:1 ratio of THC and CBD for a well-balanced, physically supportive, and relaxing effect.
Each capsule contains 6.7 mg of CBD and 6.7 mg of THC. If you don’t do well with small doses of THC edibles, these capsules may be more beneficial because they contain an equal dose of CBD. Many people find that CBD helps to combat the negative psychological effects they experience from THC.
Loosen up those shoulders, take a Fairwinds capsule, and set your mind at ease.
An easy way to bring on the zen is to pop a Mr. Moxey’s Zen Peppermint. These are infused with a 25 to 1 ratio of CBD and THC, meaning you can expect to feel calm and relaxed without any high.
The mints are perfect for any family event where you may want to be discreet. Plus, they are pocket-sized and can be taken on-the-go in any instance.
This relaxing product is made to be taken sublingually or added to your favorite beverage. It contains a 2:1 ratio of CBD and THC which provides a subtle high dominated by the soothing effects of CBD.
Tinctures are great because they take effect quickly if you take them sublingual. For sublingual administration, just drop the desired amount under your tongue and hold for 90 seconds. You can swallow the remaining tincture and expect effects within 5-20 minutes.
With 50 mg of CBD and 10 mg of THC per serving, these cannabis chocolates are a little stronger than our previous suggestions. Still, the ratio of CBD and THC should keep you feeling calm and at peace.
These bites are made from smooth espresso flavored dark chocolate and contain a caramel center and a whole coffee bean. Whether you’re running around making food and prepping the house or just mentally preparing to see that one side of the family, these bites will have you feeling calm and comfortable.
For those seeking a stronger effect, selecting a vape to get through the holidays is a good choice. We recommend Sticky Frog’s Fruit Punch disposable vape because it provides cerebral and euphoric effects followed by relaxation.
This strain, a cross of Skunk, Haze, and Northern Lights, has anywhere from 81-87% THC and 10 to 12% CBD. Expect more dominant effects from the THC, though you can still count of the CBD to provide extra wellness benefits.
Disposable vapes are perfect for those who want a relaxing holiday but don’t want to splurge for a longterm vaporizer. Just use the disposable vape when you need it and toss it out when it’s done. If you’re trying to be discreet around family, be sure to step into another room or out of sight when you use your vape. While vaporizers do produce smells, it’s usually short-lived.
If you have a bathtub available, take advantage of therapeutic cannabis bath bombs this holiday. You can take a bath at the end of long day to unwind from the stress, or you can start your day with one or even take a bath mid-day for a quick stress reliever. There are no rules, really.
Honu Fresh Mint Bath Bombs are perfect for the occasion. Each bomb contains about 100 mg of THC and an invigorating mint scent. All of your stress and worries can melt away as you soak in the relaxing bath. Add a few candles and your favorite calming music and you’ve given yourself a cozy at-home spa experience.
We hope our list of cannabis products for stress will help you find peace and comfort this holiday season. The list is nowhere near complete, though, and there are many other products that can help you relax and relieve stress all year round. Just ask one of our friendly budtenders and they’d be happy to point you in the direction of other calming products.
If you choose to go for a potent product, just know your limits and your audience. Few things can be scarier than accidentally getting too high at the dinner table with your family.
