The global concern over the novel coronavirus known as COVID-19 has many people taking precautions against contracting the virus. It’s also raising a lot of questions about weed, smoking, edibles, THC, CBD, and your health during this difficult time.

A FEW TIPS FOR THIS CRAZY TIME!
The rapid spread of coronavirus throughout the world has caused us to reevaluate a lot of our practices, including how we get high. Why? Because we’re dealing with a new strain of coronavirus, one that was discovered in 2019 and not previously identified in humans. One that affects the respiratory system which primarily means the lungs, the very organs we use to smoke or vape cannabis.
DO NOT PASS THE JOINT or the bong pipe, blunt, vaporizer, or any other device you’d typically share. Now is not the time to be sharing in close contact. Use your own, clean it often, and don’t let others use it.
We’re supposed to be practicing social distancing right now. That means, whenever possible, we should be staying six feet away from other people. You may be inclined to share smoking devices at home. Just don’t. If you must, roll more than one joint so you don’t have to share with your roommate and stay 6 feet apart.
WASH YOUR HANDS AND USE HAND SANITIZER as much as possible. If you like to vape or roll up, it might be hard to keep everything clean and safe. Using hand sanitizer is not as effective as washing your hands with soap, but it’s better than nothing.
CONSIDER OPTIONS LIKE EDIBLES AND TINCTURES. The best way to get high without adding any stress to your lungs is to keep cannabis away from your lungs. The best way to do that is to reach for something else.
Cannabis tinctures are a great way to get high quickly. All you do is put a few drops under your tongue, wait a minute, and then swallow what hasn’t already absorbed into your bloodstream.
If you’d rather go for edibles, there are endless options. We’ve got lots of different brands and flavors. You may feel the effects within 30 minutes to two hours, so be sure to start slow and not eat too many at once.
