Self Care with Cannabis


The Covid-19 pandemic has affected the lives of millions all across the globe in lots of different ways. Not only has it taken the lives of many and drastically altered the lives of many more, it has also had a massive impact on the economy in a global, national and local sense. Industries have collapsed, and new ones will likely be born. However, one industry that has really seen acceleration due to the Covid-19 pandemic is the cannabis industry. Sales, uptake of medical programs and overall usage has spiked since the pandemic first began in early 2020, and this has had massive effects on the cannabis industry as a whole.

Mental health

The reasons for the demand vary from state to state and from person to person. However, mental health is very responsible for the sharp rise in cannabis use across the nation. Conditions such as anxiety and depression have been running rife throughout the country due to the set lockdown measures that prevented people from obtaining the much-needed social contact.

For this reason, many are looking at ways to use cannabis for self-care purposes. There are lots of different products out there, with ones specific to anxiety being strains that have been known to ease tension. There are plenty of options out there, and these are just some of the choices that people suffering from issues such as anxiety can turn to. Some include CBD lotions, which can be used as part of a regular self-care routine, along with THC-infused bath salts that can allow the usual bath time and self-care routine to take a medicated twist. Cannabis is no longer just being seen as a purely recreational or medical drug, as many are now incorporating it into their lives as a way to provide some much-needed TLC through THC and CBD.

All just part of the self care routine

With cases of anxiety and depression expected to continue to soar with pressing issues such as mass unemployment seeming even more real as the days go by, cannabis use to combat this is set to continue increasing as well. While many people think that cannabis is simply being used as an escape from the chaos, the truth of the matter is that there are so many different options available to consumers, from CBD oils to alleviate stress and strains to encourage relaxation, that is all just part of many people’s self-care routine.

There is no doubt that businesses have had to adapt, with Washington DC medical marijuana being just one example of where significant changes have had to be made. Deliveries in the state of legal medical cannabis were limited to 11 am until 7 pm, but they have recently been expanded to 9 am to 9 pm to account for the increased demand. As the pandemic surges on, this demand for cannabis is set to increase as well.
