9 Ways Cannabis Brightens Your Day
There is nothing better than a new beginning for the day, the week and the year. For many, marijuana is increasingly helping to make the day a great experience. Here are some reasons why
Science has proven that cannabis has benefits and further research is being conducted to learn more. For over a thousand years, the plant has been valued as medicine and for religious and recreational purposes for its psychoactive properties. It has a longer history than pasta, beer and Hallmark movies. From medical help to anti-anxiety medications, it can improve lives. Here are 9 ways cannabis brightens your day.
Increased energy levels
While cannabis is typically associated with relaxation, many people use cannabis for energy. Some cannabis strains contain terpenes like limonene and pinene, which can lift your mood and invigorate your spirit. Look for strains with specific terpenes found in sativa strains to give you that extra boost to tackle your day.

If you don't eat enough, you won't have enough energy to get through the day. If you suffer from loss of appetite or lack of appetite, cannabis could be right for you. Cannabis is a highly effective appetite stimulant and helps you enjoy all of your favorite foods on a regular basis.
Cannabis has been used to relieve pain for at least 5,000 years. Both cannabis and CBD contain gentle pain-relieving properties, but a targeted dose of CBD or cannabis can relieve pain.
Improved social experiences
Cannabis is the perfect substance to enhance your social experiences as it helps you relax, improves your mood and makes you laugh. One of the most common ways to add cannabis to your day is to enjoy your favorite product with a friend.
The best way to enrich your day with cannabis is with a good night's sleep. Studies show that lack of sleep and stress go hand in hand. Lack of sleep can impact your endocannabinoid system and make you feel more stressed. And stress can negatively impact your sleep quality. Cannabis products help people sleep better and longer. One of the main reasons people use cannabis to sleep is because it helps them fall asleep faster. Many people find that products high in CBD, CBN or THC are very effective at improving their sleep. You can experiment with different products or cannabinoids (and record your experiences in the Jointly app) to find which combination works best for you.

A cannabis-infused bath is a great way to combat everyday stress. Your body will absorb the cannabinoids while your mind relaxes. As we discussed in cannabis ingestion methods, topical THC products will not get you high. However, topical cannabinoids can help you relieve mild pain, not to mention help you relax at the end of a stressful day.
In small amounts, cannabis can increase your creativity due to its ability to alter blood flow to the brain. Specifically, cannabis use is associated with increased blood flow to the frontal lobes of the brain. The frontal lobes are believed to be the center for creativity and divergent thinking.
8. Improved work efficiency
With all the hustle and bustle of everyday life, an efficient workflow may be one of your top priorities. While you may not associate cannabis with improved work efficiency, many people use cannabis for energy. Additionally, CBD products can help you achieve your goals by giving you energy and focus until everything is achieved.
