5 Ways to stay cool with cannabis this summer
Now that temperatures are sky-high, it’s a good time to break out any tips, tricks, or tools you might have or know that could keep you cooler throughout the summer months. Air conditioners, fans, avoiding unnecessary physical exertion, and staying hydrated can help, but if you’re looking for more intense relief, this is the perfect place to start.
Here, we’ll show you five different ways to use cannabis that are sure to help you to beat the summer heat.
1. Smoking weed
Sure, a few puffs off a hard-hitting joint or monster bong could make you break a sweat, which is somewhat counterproductive, but if you stick to cultivars that are smooth, then you just might find that it cools you down significantly. Both THC and CBD seem to have the ability to help by lowering your temperature, in any form including edibles, but there is some scientific evidence to suggest that toking and vaping will typically work better to cool you down.
2. CBD-infused water
Staying hydrated is key if you’re looking to survive the hottest summer months, and it’ll help to chill you from the inside out. Of course, with how much you’ll need to drink, it’s probably best to steer clear of THC-infused H2O, but CBD-infused water could provide an additional boost you won’t get from any tap. All you need is a small amount of water-soluble CBD, and you’ll be able to turn any old cup of liquid into the cannabis-infused variety with ease, and once you get the hang of it, figuring out dosing is a cinch which is just a bonus.
You could cool down with water and a couple of hits of your favourite flower, or you could opt for a frozen treat that will both delight the senses and quell the sweltering heat. All it takes is a few cannabis drinks, or any other delicious, infused liquid your heart desires, and a popsicle mould, and in just a few hours you can have a whole batch of these powerful frozen desserts to share. Toss in a dollop of Greek yogurt, and a handful of in-season berries, and you’ll have yourself a truly special snack that will fill you up and cool you down.
4. Use canna-cubes to chill your drinks
Craving a cannabis cocktail but not quite up to the challenge of making them? What about some gentle THC juice made with your favourite flavour? Even warm beverages like coffee and tea may be chilled with the addition of cannabis cubes, which can instantly turn them into cannabis drinks. It’s that simple! Toss a few in the freezer by filling an ice cube tray with your choice of cannabis liquid and put it in the freezer for at least 3 hours. Upon your return, you’ll have a dozen or more icy cubes of cannabis goodness ready when you want them the most.
5. A cool cannabis bath
Imagine how relaxing it would be to spark one up while sipping on CBD-infused water complete with THC-infused ice cubes and soaking in a luxurious bubble bath that’s run at a cool temperature. If you’re seeking the ultimate way to beat the heat, this would certainly be it. Harness the power of cannabinoids in nearly every form and consider the option to take this experience one step further with an aromatic bath bomb. Steamy hot showers can’t be enjoyed in these temperatures, but a nice, chilled bath could be just what you need to feel better.
