Once the pandemic hit, all different types of businesses shifted to work from home platforms in order to abide by social distancing requirements and maintain productivity. Though technically, this is a trend that began long before any whispers of a virus, it was amplified significantly, practically overnight, as millions of employees who would normally work from the office stayed at home, getting a taste of freedom that was rather unexpected.

Some flourished with the newfound time that was no longer being wasted in business meetings and transit, but now that emergency orders are ending, most companies are calling back their workforces.

Going back to the same old shift surrounded by people isn’t the most appealing idea to those who figured out how to manage their time better at home, and though many employees will be happy to get back to the hustle, bustle, and connection of the office experience, it’s going to be a rocky transition for everyone. No longer will workers be able to lounge and have a sesh mid workday, but there are some things that can help to ease the stress and anxiety of going back to normal.

1. Portable vape

You might not want to arm yourself with a big fat spliff that’s going to take your whole break and then some to smoke because it’s going to be smelly and time-consuming, something you no longer have the luxury of accepting, but a portable vaporizer will eliminate those problems almost instantly. Take a few hits here or there when the opportunity arises, and dapple in more potent options with effects that will last longer, to help you get through the day.

2. Capsules

Cannabinoid capsules don’t get as much praise as they deserve, and they're an ideal solution if you’re stuck with heading back to the office. They don’t smell at all, they store well at regular room temperatures, they’re premeasured so you can easily avoid going overboard, and they’re always ready to take with nothing more than a shot of water when you need it the most. Your fellow employees won’t think anything of it, assuming it’s a Tylenol or some other acceptable prescription, and it’ll give you a boost at any time of day without having to leave the premises.

3. Sublingual strips

Vaping at work takes skill, finesse, and at least a few moments of privacy, and capsules do generally require a drink of some sort to get down, so what do you do when you don’t work in an office where they’re possible? Well, look no further than sublingual strips. These incredible inventions are compact, making them easy to keep a pack in your back pocket for easy access, and they’re perfectly dosed to give you complete control over the effects.

4. Cannabinoid infused coffee

All of the options we’ve mentioned so far are individual products that come contained and delivered in ways that can still be noticeable if your coworkers know what to look for, which is why we thought it was important to add something that is so disguised it’s practically at home in the office like cannabis-infused coffee. This stuff comes in CBD, THC, and terpene-infused varieties to suit any mood, and if you’ve got your own coffee pot either at home or in the office, it’s easy to keep a thermos or mug filled with some of this soothing drink.

5. The right cannabis strains

Whether it's before work, on break, or after getting home, most consumers who are used to toking are going to want a good old fashioned hit at some point, but now that you’re going to be spending a lot of time in the office, you might want to arm yourself with the right strains, which can help you to avoid unexpected naps or burnout from impacting your productivity. Luckily, we’ve got your back with a list of the best cannabis strains for every time of day.

Moderation is key
