I’ve decided to no longer order the little metal tins I use for regular strength balm since I really like the look & size of the white 2oz pots I have started using for my extra strength. So bye bye little tins, hello doubling the size of regular strength!
The metal tins sometimes stick and I’ve had the feedback that they are hard to use for people with chronic hand problems. I’ve also had troubles finding a replacement 1oz white pot so this means both regular & extra strength will be the same size because I’m done hunting. I’ve got more important things to work on! ?
Regular strength balms get a makeover! They will now be shipped in 2oz size instead of 1oz with 420mg THC instead of 210mg. Your new balm goes from roughly 4 months worth to a 6-8 month supply depending on how much you’re using it. Regular price will be $35.
My remaining 1oz regular strength tins are available for the discounted price of $20 in the 1oz balm section. Scents and stock are limited and if you’re lucky, you can nab the last Earl Grey.
Extra Strength balms are remaining awesome and at their very affordable price (from what I’ve seen online) – no price, packaging or sizing changes planned.
It’s February. Time to shave your legs/face/whatever, get gussied up and spend some time with someone you love, or if you’re single, to find someone you can love.
But what does this have to do with cannabis topicals? Well I’ll tell you! I’m going to do my best to suggest ways cannabis bath & body products can benefit your going out ritual and maybe if we’re lucky, I’ll have some “next day” tips for you.
I’m not sure about you but I like to work selfcare into my going out routine. If I’m really lucky, I can spend almost all day getting ready for a night out. That’s the sort of day where I’d be luxuriating in a cannabis bath, putting my hair in rollers, doing the false lashes and of course the carefully selected outfit. Don’t judge, I sometimes like a movie montage starring myself ??♀️
To receive the full effects of a cannabis bath, I recommend the euphoric bath salts or bath bomb and soaking for an hour. Your body will feel super relaxed and your skin will be so soft that your date might get a little touchy with you. Wine or a joint in the tub is optional but not recommended for the beginner. You need to know how things affect you before you start mixing, trust me. I’ve heard stories!
For added softness you can use my cannabis sugar scrub. It’s formulated to dissolve in the water so you won’t have grit in your bath. I made the mistake of using another brand’s scrub in the bath. It felt like a day at the beach, and not in the good way. The scrub can also be used in the shower (which is how I prefer using it) but you could also do a dry scrub before your bath or shower, it’s all up to you. Either way, it’s going to help boost your circulation and slough off old skin cells and tough grime.
Shower fans: don’t forget about the cannabis bodywash and soaps! I find the bodywash just washes away my aches. Sometimes I wash an area twice to get the tougher aches out. I usually just use the bar soap on my hands but I have noticed it soothes any minor cuts as well as makes my skin baby soft. Either will be an excellent addition to your prep, especially if you have some pain or expect some by the end of the night. A little preventative always helps me get through a night out.
Protip for those of you with dry skin, I like to use my regular strength pain relief oil as a body oil. It makes my skin feel really nice. I also love my chamomile headache roller on zits. I’ve noticed that in some cases, I can put this on before bed and the zit is gone in the morning. I’ve even been known to use the chamomile pain relief oil on my face before bed. It makes my face feel relaxed and I’ve noticed a brighter complexion and soft skin. I don’t recommend this with all of my products though. The chamomile with the cannabis seems to be the most effective for my skin problems. I even use the chamomile headache roller on cystic pimples. It stops the pain and has made quite a few of them run their course faster for me.
After you’ve relaxed and soothed your body with a shower or bath, you should be in a pretty good mood for your date. I really hope you get some action! ?
So that leads me to after care…. if you did something stupid (roller skating, weird positions, trip over your shoes, some weird activity you’re way too out of shape for… etc) during your date, you might need another cannabis bath (if it was a weird sex injury to reduce your awkward inflammation) or some of my pain relief balm or oil (if it resulted in bruising or pulled muscles of the non genital variety) to help you get back on your feet.
Protip: the balm works great on an aching jaw and sore muscles. Just saying….
As you can see, cannabis topicals can be easily incorporated into any lifestyle. I highly recommend you give them a shot if you live with a chronic pain condition or you’re just chronic. ?
Sorry, cannabis is not going to cure you or prevent you from getting the Corona-19 virus but they can make you feel a bit better if you get hit.
The BC Center for disease control states “The symptoms of COVID-19 are similar to other respiratory illnesses, including the flu and common cold. They include cough, sneezing, fever, sore throat and difficulty breathing.” However a local medical professional has given me a bit more details than that. Sore throat and a dry cough are the signs that the hospitals were told to look out for in cases of suspected Covid-19.
Topicals can’t help with coughing, sneezing, fever and difficulty breathing but a cannabis balm with eucalyptus rubbed on your sore throat can help ease your discomfort. All of our extra strength balms contain eucalyptus so you can get some of the benefits even if you hate the smell of plain eucalyptus.
Our cannabis balm could help any chapped skin from excessive nose blowing or wiping. It can also provide localized pain relief for sore achy muscles.
If you find you’re getting headaches and sinus pain, then reach for one of our headache rollers! Eucalyptus is extra beneficial as it can help clear airways but any of our scents can help with headaches.
If baths are more your thing, our Euphoric Bath Collection has some great treats for those tired aching muscles. It’s a total game changer if you’ve been coughing so hard your back and/or abs hurt since you can treat the pain while relaxing in the tub before bed. You get the pain relief plus the added benefit of super soft skin and I don’t know about you but I don’t know a single person who doesn’t love soft skin!
Don’t forget: nothing can replace acetaminophen to stop a fever. I’ve been told ibuprofen & other nsaids make the symptoms worse but acetaminophen works best for fevers so why take the chance? It sounds like it’s similar to the flu and it’s mainly the elderly at risk so keep your kids away from grandma as she would be higher risk for pneumonia can follow.
Remember to wash your hands and try not to touch your face while in public. Stay healthy, stay safe friends and of course share your favorite topical tips in the comments! We’d love to hear them!
