If you’ve heard of magic mushrooms, you probably wonder if they have anything to do with psychedelic cannabis. They don’t have similarities, but pretty much psychedelic cannabis offer a more cerebral experience, and it can cause a bit of an overload if you’re not careful. Psychedelic strains aren’t the top sellers everywhere, but sometimes they do sell out quickly, but some may buy a bud because they’re on sale, or maybe they’re seeded, and then, they have stronger effects than they knew of. If you want to have psychedelic strains, that’s fine, or you might want to avoid these. Here, we’ll go over everything to know about psychedelic cannabis. 

What Makes Them this way

What most don’t think of is the effects, we just think it’s ketamine or psilocybin, one of which is legalized for therapeutic uses, but the other is decriminalized in some states.Cannabis does make you feel a high sensation, and usually the result depends on the cannabis type. Sativa strains make you feel energetic, alert, happy, and creative. Indica will help with pain, stress, and also help with anxiety and make you sleepy. 

Common Effects of This 

There is also another part of this that helps with the entourage effect, which is pretty much where the flavonoids and the terpenes also work to offer better medicinal results with this, and it can help with the effects of this. Psychedelic plants of course are flowery plants that create psychedelic responses when consumed. Passionflower, magic truffles and mushrooms, kanna, morning glory, and peyote are examples, and they’ve been used in healing and practices for a long time. There are even toads that offer psychedelic sensations, but they are of course, very poisonous. Psychedelics in terms of cannabis are essentially creating similar effects, such as hallucination, but this is something that can sometimes be avoided since a lot of people would prefer to be calm and happy rather than experiencing psychoactive results from their highs.

There are certain effects that happen with cannabis strains, and right now, we can’t possibly guarantee the effects. You may not know what types of psychoactive effects are there, and it might affect you based on your body weight, the tolerance you have, and other factors. If you don’t know how it’ll react, it’s important to be mindful, but here, we’ll talk about some of the common effects. The first, is a shift in the spacetime continuum, which means that you feel like time has completely stopped or rushed forward when it hasn’t. The second is tired arms and legs, and usually a couch-lock.  Think tank controls in older Resident Evil games, chances are that’s the sensation you’re feeling. There also cotton mouth and nausea, which can sometimes be a common problem, and it can cause you to feel this way for a long time. It also may increase your heart rate, so if you do have cardiovascular issues, you might want to be mindful of that before you consume this strain of cannabis. 

And finally, there is the “out of body” experience that happens in cannabis, and it can be both pleasant, and terrifying, depending on the chemistry of the brain. It may feel like you’re completely liberated, and you also may panic in some cases. It also may make you feel anxious about sounds that you hear outside too. If you feel like this is happening, you may want to be mindful of the use. You should talk to of course the person you’re getting it from if you want to avoid this, especially if you don’t like this kind of high. 

Munchies and Obesity

Trying to be healthier through working out and improving your immune system is never a bad thing. It does involve healthy eating, being fit, and having a good weight, and this can be hard if you’re someone dealing with chronic pain. Medical cannabis does help with pain, but it can cause munchies, so you’ll want to avoid these calories. Some strains pull you to the kitchen to get a bunch of food. If cannabis is causing issues with weight problems, here, we’ll discuss this. 

The problem with Entreaty Lifestyles 

Being healthy is a hard thing to do, and for most of us, the pandemic and social distancing caused people to work from home and not go to the gym as much. Some places have more than 30% of people there with obesity, and there are some that have even more. There are some states with the highest activity levels, and they usually have people who are out and active. Thirty-minute exercises may not be enough for some people, and that’s why your diet is more important than of course just going to the gym. Being active improves sour fitness but keeping good body weights does rely on the foods that we have. If you use cannabis, you might already have some means to fight the munchies. 

Chronic Pain Problems 

Chronic pain is another problem too. It can cause you to feel like you don’t want to do anything, pulling you to the couch and keeping you there. It also may make preparing meals difficult too, so it might be better to get processed foods and fast foods since that’s more manageable.

Then there is sleep. You need sleep to be healthy, but those with chronic pain struggle with sleep, and that makes it hard for them to get a good night’s sleep. Of course, there is also financial restrictions that happen too, since many who suffer from chronic pain can’t sit down or do things for a long time, and many times they have to go to assisted living. That of course makes it harder to purchase healthy foods, since the budget is stretched. 

How to Fight the Munchies when dealing with Chronic Pain 

It’s best to have a plan of course. If you find your weight increasing when using medical marijuana, it can be a bit of a struggle. It can actually make chronic pain worse if you’re overweight, and you can reduce your symptoms like this. While cannabis does help to get rid of inflammation and pain, it does stimulate your appetite and cause munchies at midnight for many.So how do you win? First, make sure that you’ve got snack prepared and ready to go. Make these convenient.Try to avoid the bad things. Don’t bring it in there, since if you’re going to get the munchies, not having it there does solve the problem. 

You should also drink at least two whole glasses of water before you consume. It can help reduce the munchies urge a lot in most cases. Finally, pick strains that don’t give you the munchies. This can be hard f the best options are that, but if you have a budtender you trust, ask them what the best strains for day and nighttime are, since that’ll keep you out of the kitchen. You can also stop grabbing the snacks by suddenly turning on something that you do enjoy.Of course, with the munchies, it’s a battle for many, so being mindful of this does help not only with combatting that, but also using this for chronic pain too.
