The holidays are a stressful time for everyone, and Thanksgiving is the jumping point of the family-oriented holiday season. Catching up with relatives is exhausting and sometimes frustrating. Not to mention the amount of mental and physical work it takes to prepare Thanksgiving dinner. Toss a global pandemic into the mix and it’s enough to make even the most composed individual pull their hair out.
If this sounds like you then take a deep breath, because we’re here to help. As your local marijuana dispensary in Portland Oregon, we’ll provide you with the best quality weed to help you tolerate your family and make Thanksgiving dinner even more delicious – if it’s even possible.
What’s the best cure for marijuana munchies?
Thanksgiving dinner, of course. That’s right, green bean casserole won’t be the only green item on the menu. Cannabis makes food taste better, it’s a fact. Not only that, but weed also helps with digestion by protecting your stomach lining. Which means you can eat to your hearts content. After all, isn’t that the goal of Thanksgiving?
Visiting a marijuana store near you to load up on ingredients is a good idea. Then you can try some weed cookies for dessert as the perfect solution to help you digest your impending food baby and make your food coma even more restful.
Calm your anxieties
We’ve all mostly been isolated throughout the last several months which isn’t doing anything to help our social skills. Being faced with endless small talk, and combating questions about your job, relationship status, and life in general is stressful enough even before the pandemic.
Lucky for you, it doesn’t take much for marijuana to dissipate your fears. Or at least, calm them down enough to get you through the day without succumbing to hiding in your closet.
Don’t overdo it though, make sure you know your tolerance. Too much intake can cause feelings of paranoia, and there’s already enough of that going around. A micro dose is all you need to calm your anxiety.
Get along with your family
Building off the last point, did you know that weed helps stimulate the feel-good hormone oxytocin? Oxytocin has been shown to increased interpersonal bonding, which increases your odds of being able to tolerate even your most annoying relative. And if you get along with your family, all the better! Nothing like a boost of oxytocin to make even the best times, better.
Way Better than alcohol
Booze and Thanksgiving dinner often go hand in hand. It doesn’t take much explaining to understand why alcohol has been a favorite side dish for decades. It calms inhibitions and makes us more social. But it also tends to cause wicked hangovers, embarrassing moments, and difficulty getting home.
Marijuana on the other hand, provides all of the perks without the negative outcomes. I think you get our point, but if not then consider this: Cannabis is 114 times safer than alcohol.
Pick Your Method
Every family is different. Maybe weed brownies aren’t the best idea when children are around. Maybe your family wouldn’t approve if they knew you were stoned at dinner. Then again, maybe they’d want to join in your fun!
Whichever the case, we have your solution. Here at your local marijuana dispensary in north Portland, we have everything you need. Edibles, drinks, and tinctures are a great stealthy solution to keep your cannabis fun under the radar. Vape pens and cannabis cartridges also allow for incognito intake without giving you away, as long as you don’t get caught in the action.
However, if your family is onboard with it, keep with the traditional method of smoking cannabis flower can become quite the bonding experience. Sit in a circle and puff, puff, pass one of our pre-rolled joints.
