For each activity, we include a handful of helpful alternatives that can help you to make it through. So, if you’re nervous about a certain date, or seeking a more intense experience, then this list is made for you.

1. Artistic creating

We tend to create some of the most moving and inspiring artwork when we’re left alone with our thoughts, but when you’ve got a lot on your mind, it can be hard to see past the day to day stresses of life. Luckily, there are many different types of weed that can help by bringing down that mental block, relieving stress, and increasing focus.

2. Watching movies

No matter what kind of flicks you might be into when taking in a film, be it at home or out on the town on a big screen, it’s a relatively relaxed situation where you can sort of let yourself go, and unwind, and that is the perfect time to experiment with the more intense euphoric types of weed out there. They can really help to spark your imagination and allow you to get truly lost in the story before you while you tingle and munch away on snacks to your heart's content.

Whether you’re heading out for Sunday brunch with mom or having a candlelit dinner for two, you’ll need two things, including your appetite and composure.

For some people, the idea of being the center of attention is a dream that they work towards, but for many, the idea of heading into a large venue full of people, or getting up on a stage for all to see is just a bit too much to bear. This can cause feelings of anxiety, a loss of appetite, and even upset stomach, but that can all be quelled with the ideal cannabis strains on hand. What you’ll need is something that picks up the conversation, and makes you feel relaxed, without causing a haze, and for that, your best bet may be these different types of weed.

5. Exercise

We’ve covered situations where you want to be tingly from head to toe and those where a slightly less intoxicating set of effects might be useful, but if you’re heading out for some quiet gym time or a long hike, then there are two things that you will need including motivation and focus. Though it might seem like an unusual combination, some types of weed can do just that with more uplifting and invigorating effects that will help you to see your journey through until the very end.
