After one of the wildest, most stressful and completely unpredictable years ever, we’ve been hearing from a lot of patients who are ready to take charge of their mental health, their physical health and their overall sense of wellness. Whatever your personal goals or resolutions are for the New Year, at Revolutionary Clinics, our medical marijuana dispensaries have the cannabis products and advice you need to achieve them.
Don’t believe us? Let’s break down some of the most common New Year’s resolutions and how cannabis can help you stick to them.
How cannabis can help you lose weight
We forgive you if you’re rolling your eyes or laughing out loud at this one. With certain strains of cannabis “the munchies” are a very real thing. They’re also the reason cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy turn to cannabis to help stimulate their appetites so they’re motivated to consume the food they need to maintain their strength. If that’s your sole impression of the effects of medical marijuana, you’ll be surprised to learn that some strains of cannabis can actually suppress your appetite. In addition to THC, the chemical compound responsible for getting you high, these strains contain THCV. This compound is typically found in sativa strains that are known for their energy stimulating effects that help patients get things done. In the process of delivering focus and motivation, hunger pangs tend to fall by the wayside which can help you avoid those late night snack cravings that can derail your weight loss goals. Our inventory of sativa strains containing THCV is constantly changing but any of our Patient Advocates can point you in the right direction.
How cannabis can help you exercise more
The energy-generating sativa strains we just mentioned are also great for helping you find the drive you need to resist the temptation of binge-watching the latest streaming sensation and start your next workout. As we’ve said before, cannabis can also help you recover from an aggressive workout by reducing inflammation and relieving muscle pain. Nothing derails a new fitness routine faster than aches and pains that leave you feeling tired and unmotivated. The faster you can recover from your last workout the easier it will be for you to commit to your next workout.
How cannabis can help you focus and achieve your productivity goals
Have you decided that this is the year you finally get organized so you’re not constantly looking for things or scrambling from commitment to commitment without a plan? Ask your favorite Revolutionary Clinics Patient Advocate about which cannabis strains are good for focus. We’ve written extensively about how cannabis as an alternative to prescriptions for Attention Deficit Disorder and how microdosing cannabis enables patients to improve their levels of concentration without experiencing the psychoactive effects. Being in a focused frame of mind will help you avoid distractions or fall back into the old, ineffective habits that keep you from reaching your productivity goals.
How cannabis can help you manage stress
Let’s face it, we’ve all had a lot more to worry about than usual lately. After dealing with the pressures of work, family and staying on top of the latest public health and safety information, it’s absolutely essential to take time to decompress. Athletes, celebrities and regular people alike have found cannabis to be an effective way to relieve stress for decades. A lot of our new patients already know that medical marijuana can help them relax but they worry about becoming addicted. At Revolutionary Clinics, we’re sensitive to these concerns and take a strategic approach to cannabis consumption. Our Consultation Team works to create a unique plan for each patient that involves careful journaling so you can document exactly how much you took, how you felt and how long the effects last. This level of care and control is essential to develop a routine that works. For additional assurance, check out this report from The Journal of Neuroimmune Pharmacology which concluded that cannabis “may not be as robust as other drugs of abuse.”
How cannabis can help you be more positive and resilient
Having a positive attitude and seeing the glass as half full is a lot easier to do when you’re not experiencing chronic pain, getting regular exercise, at the weight you want to be and feeling less stress because you’re focused, organized and on top of your game. Even if you don’t use cannabis to improve your mood by helping you achieve some of the most common New Year’s resolutions, you can always use it for its euphoric effects. Talk to our Patient Advocates about how our Indica strains evoke feelings of happiness and bliss that can take the edge off a tough day, help you enjoy restful, satisfying sleep and wake feeling refreshed, recharged and ready to take on the day.
At Revolutionary Clinics, we believe cannabis can help just about anyone to be happier, more confident and better equipped to handle the challenges of daily life.
