Fun Ways Medical Marijuana Can Improve Your Summer

Fun in the sun is going to be here in just a few months! If you have your medical marijuana card in Virginia, you might not realize it, but your product can help make your summer fun that much more enjoyable! Below are just a few of the many ways medical marijuana can improve your quality of life to make your summer the best one in yet!

Relieve Your Stress and Anxiety

Even when we get the time off, some of us are just not that good at unwinding. How many times have you had the opportunity to enjoy a three-day weekend or even a week of vacation and then spent most of the time hemming and hawing about work or “regular” life?

Medical marijuana can step in to help relieve much of this stress and anxiety, helping you to unwind and truly enjoy your summer break. A study conducted at the University of Illinois showed that THC products can have a positive effect on your anxiety. Participants who had received a capsule containing 7.5 milligrams of THC were less anxious when given a test of psychosocial symptoms. Their stress levels also returned to normal much faster than participants who did not take THC.

Medical Marijuana Can Take Those Aches and Pains Away

Many of us might avoid summer activities due to the aches and pains that inevitably come with age. Rather than turning to over the counter or even traditional prescription painkillers, you might consider medical marijuana as the natural solution to your chronic pain. It's even a great answer for many women who experience menstrual pain and cramps.

Don’t turn down that game of tag football at the beach this summer! Medical marijuana has time and time again had a demonstrable effect on pain, making it the ultimate way to enjoy some activity this summer.

Improve the Quality of Your Workouts This Summer

The warmer months often mean a lot more exercise for Virginians. The mountains, beaches, canal roads and bike trails across the Commonwealth all offer a wealth of exercise opportunities once the sun is bright and high.

Did you know that your medical marijuana can actually enhance the quality of the exercise you get outdoors this summer? It’s true! Cannabis has been shown to improve both the quality and duration of exercise. And contrary to its reputation for creating a bunch of couch potatoes, cannabis actually correlates with fitness success! In fact, cannabis users are less likely to be obese than non-users. So, when you head out for your summer bike ride, consider how medical marijuana can enhance the experience and your journey to wellness.

Always Travel Safely With Medical Marijuana!

Virginia is kind of a unicorn when it comes to being a unique state because of the large amount of federal land in the Commonwealth. What this means for medical marijuana users is that you need to be aware and responsible when traveling with or toting your favorite product! What might be a fun hike with friends could just put you right in federal territory, meaning your perfectly legal product is suddenly (technically) illegal!
