Herbalize it: 8 Cannabis Products That Won’t Mess Up Your Lungs (But Will Still Get You Plenty High)
CBD-Infused Iced Coffee
Whether your nursing a killer hangover or just running on empty, caffeine’s pep and CBD’s body-numbing powers combine to make the perfect pick-me-up. Keep creativity and energy high with such fine-tuned blends.
The Golden Ratio For CBD to THC
Weed makes some jobs harder and some bearable. If you require herb to get through your shift but still need your short-term memory, seek out products with CBD to THC ratios of 1-to-1, 2-to-1 or even higher. This will keep you cool and collected no matter how annoying your boss or customers are.
Full-spectrum CBD oil contains not only CBD, but small amounts of THC, terpenes and other cannabinoids. Full-spectrum unlocks the true medical power of cannabis through the entourage effect, which has nothing to do with the awful HBO show of the same name.
You need sleep to function properly, but glowing screens and stress leave many today with insomnia. Luckily, there are a range of products, usually chocolates, that combine the coma-inducing powers of indica with other sleep aids like melatonin or corydalis.
Edibles with a low dose of THC (3 to 5 milligrams) can help fight headaches without making you useless. They also make annoying coworkers and mind-numbing busy work more bearable.
Everyone knows weed makes sex better. An ever-growing range of THC-infused lubes allow you to share the warm buzz of a body high with your lover without any friction.

Mix and Match
If you prefer your Mary Jane the old-fashioned way, smoked in a doobie or bong, but still have a honking to-do list, then mixing a strain of cannabis high in CBD with a normal THC-dominant one will allow you to stay both chill and focused.
