Self-care can mean many things, from taking time to meditate, to walking towards your step goal each day. More and more people are turning to cannabis as part of their self-care routine and looking to edibles and topicals as extra tools to help prioritize mental and physical health. Whether it’s for anxiety relief, better sleep, or to ease chronic pain, there is a OUIDE product that can help supplement your daily wellness routine.
For dealing with stress or unwinding after an exhausting day, OUIDE Relax products can help bring a sense of calm. The 8:1 ratio of Indica THC:CBD acts as an advanced reliever with the synergistic benefits that both THC and CBD provide. The micro-dosed RELAX Pastille is the perfect little "Chill Pill", or look to the higher dosed RELAX Gummies or Pills for something stronger to soothe tense, sore muscles and relax an overactive mind in preparation for much needed rest.
For coping with difficult emotions it can be helpful to set aside time to focus on why you’re feeling anxious. CBD can help relieve symptoms of anxiety so you can work towards healing the root cause, whether through therapy, meditation, breathwork, journaling, or going for a run. OUIDE Relieve products offer CBD in various doses and forms which can help curb high anxiety as well as depression, seizures, PTSD, and aid neurodegenerative conditions. CBD is non-psychoactive so if you’re nervous about the possible effects of THC (aka getting high) Relieve products with almost no THC are a great place to start.
If you’re looking to boost your mood cannabis can help shift your perspective thanks to the way it interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid (ECS) system. This interaction can activate hormones like serotonin and dopamine giving you the “feel good” shift you might need. OUIDE Uplift products, with an 8:1 ratio of Sativa THC:CBD, are formulated to provide that boost. Their Sativa characteristics have anti-anxiety and anti-depressant properties that increase focus, creativity, and serotonin which make them ideal for daytime use.
If working out is part of your self-care routine (or if you want it to be), CBD can help both pre and post-workout. CBD (and for some, in combination with THC) can give a boost of energy to help motivate you to get moving or provide extra energy to power through a hard workout. Products with an entourage effect (1:1 CBD:THC) can provide a boost of energy. Try OUIDE Entourage Pastilles for a micro-dose to start. CBD post-workout is great for pain management as it can be an effective way to relieve soreness caused by exercise, as well as shorten recovery time following a workout. OUIDE Relieve+ Healing Oil can be used topically to rub into sore muscles, or taken orally for full body anti-inflammation and help wind down for a good night of sleep. Try OUIDE Recovery Mending Oil with THC to bolster recovery.
For women cannabis can also be helpful to get you through your menstrual cycle and associated symptoms during that time of the month. For raging cramps (or Endometriosis) try THC:CBD balanced edibles like OUIDE Entourage products to help reduce pain and inflammation. The gradual body “high” is ideal for PMS to soothe the physical pain, and the CBD can help subdue emotional swings as well. You can also drop some Relieve+ Healing Oil into a hot bath for a full-body CBD soak to help ease your body and mind.
There are many other ways the right dose of CBD and THC can help with self-care, from avoiding burnout, to improving clarity and focus. It’s still important to get outdoors, take a break if you can, step away from your devices, and remember to be kind to yourself, but CBD can help point you in the right direction. If you are new to cannabis start with a low dose and experiment to find the right fit for you as part of your self-care routine.
