Edibles Are A Better Option Than Smoking Marijuana During Pandemic

The coronavirus should make us all think twice before smoking, whether it’s tobacco or weed. Luckily for everyone, edibles can be easily purchased or made at home.

COVID-19 is a respiratory illness, one that’s transmitted when in close contact with infected people. Now that most of us are spending our time in self-quarantine, how can we protect ourselves aside from constant and annoying hand-washing?

One thing most experts agree on is that smoking is not a good idea at the moment, even if what you’re smoking is marijuana. The better your lungs are, the more likely it is for you to prevent complications should you come in contact with COVID-19. This also applies to people who vape.

'People are certainly buying more': Cannabis stores attribute spike in sales to COVID-19

Legal recreational cannabis sales saw a spike in Alberta over the month of March according to some of the province's major retailers.

As the COVID-19 crisis began to hit the province, it appears as though pot smokers decided to stock up.

"We’ve seen a significant increase in sales, particularly as we entered into the COVID phase – in and around March 12 and that was sustained for about two weeks," Fire & Flower Chief Financial Officer, Nadia Vattovaz told CTV News from Toronto via video chat.

"We have since that time seen a little bit of a drop off, but it’s actually returning to pre-levels," she said.

Nova Cannabis reported a similar trend.

Does Cannabis Help Overcome Fears and Phobias or Make Them Worse?

Yes, we live in uncertain times. Lot’s have been written lately over the uncertainty of Covid-19 and whatnot. I do not want to write over that again. I rather want to address the topic of fear that can escalate so fast into something worse. At this moment, everyone is in isolation sort of. Many countries have gone into complete lockdown. This is where fear comes in. Doesn’t it feel in a way that we are losing our freedom and self-control? Now we can’t just get in a car and run away to a serene spot or visit a friend or family member. We are subjected to the laws of the authority and can only do essential shopping. If we would allow this uncertainty to manifest in our minds, we jeopardize our health. And if we are not careful, Covid-19 alone might not be the problem.
