We’ve all been there: Trapped in a situation that you’d rather not be in. Maybe your significant other needs backup at a work event or you’ve been wrangled into attending some kind of dreaded reunion.
Whatever the reason, one thing’s clear: You’re spending your hard-earned time doing something that you don’t really want to do, because well, responsibilities.
Of course, this doesn’t mean the time spent has to be a total drag. Nature always provides—so why not take a little cannabis along for the ride? After all, the plant can help us manage stress and keep our cool in all kinds of situations.
So, the next time you find yourself stuck between a rock and a hard place, take some of these cannabis products with you. They may just make you more patient and willing to go with the flow. And who knows? Maybe you’ll even enjoy yourself.
1. Pop a Level Indica ProTab When You’re Spending (Too) Many Hours in Transit
Whoever said “it’s about the journey, not the destination” has never had to take a Greyhound bus for hundreds of miles. Traveling—whether by plane, bus or car—can be a chore. If you’re not the one operating the heavy machinery, consider taking some cannabis along to lull yourself to sleep—or at least make the ride more entertaining.
Level’s Indica ProTabs, which boast a whopping 25 mg of THC per tablet, are the way to go for journeys over eight hours. If you’re traveling for a shorter amount of time or if 25 mg sounds like a bit much, cut the tab in two; they’re scored for your convenience.
One last tip: Either have your cannabis before you start your trip or check the laws at your final destination, so you won’t run into any trouble for having some cannabis on you.
2. Snack On Kiva’s Camino Gummies While Waiting in a Long Line
Maybe you’re friends with someone who insists on always trying the newest pastry trend. Or you’ve agreed (against your better judgment) to go to an amusement park in the summertime. Whatever the reason, it’s inescapable: At some point soon, you’re going to have to stand in a ridiculously long line.
But don’t fret: Kiva’s Camino Gummies in Wild Berry are here for you.
Each gummy contains 5 mg of THC and a relaxing blend of terpenes. Pop one before you head out the door, and you’ll soon be so blissed out standing in an hour-long line for a gluten-free, vegan, avocado-chocolate donut will seem like a totally reasonable thing to do.
3. Have Care By Design’s 18:1 Tincture Before a Big Preso to Take Care of the Jitters
