Since junior year of college, I’ve been using cannabis to manage anxiety, stress, depressive symptoms, appetite issues, sleeping problems, and debilitating menstrual cramps. In recent years, I’ve leaned heavily on the plant to help me deal with PTSD symptoms. Over the past year, I’ve discovered that CBD and THC improve my life in different ways, so now I use a mixture of CBD and THC products daily.

A growing wealth of research suggests that cannabinoids and terpenoids are most effective when consumed simultaneously, and there are plenty of ways to get your daily dose of whole plant medicine.


Cannabis’s Entourage Effect: Why Whole Plant Medicine Matters

From Rad Vapes’ potent all-sativa cannabis vapes to Green Helix CBD’s deep sleep capsules, there are all kinds of ways to add balance to your wellness routine by using CBD-rich and THC-rich products together. Here are just a few of my favorites.

CBD Menstrual Relief Capsules by Green Helix

Where to buy: Find Green Helix online

If you suffer from debilitating menstrual cramps, increased anxiety, nausea, sleeplessness, and/or brain fog during your period, CBD can help. Green Helix CBD Menstrual Relief is specifically engineered to offer natural, non-psychoactive relief from menstrual pain and discomfort.

Each vegetarian capsule contains 50mg of pain-fighting CBD, and since these won’t alter your mental state, there’s no reason why you can’t take them while you’re at work, on the road, or anywhere else. I prefer these over ibuprofen.

Neon Dream by Rad Extracts

Check these menus for it:

Neon Dream is a sweet, earthy mix of Super Silver Haze and Purple Punch, and like all Rad Extracts, it’s formulated to help you party like it’s 1985. But you don’t have to be a club-hopping extrovert to enjoy this product.

Whether you spend your weekends dancing the night away or hiking in the woods, Neon Dream should leave you feeling euphoric, relaxed, and energetic. Since Rad vapes are high energy, I like to use mine in tandem with a pure CBD vape.

CBD-Infused Luscious Coconut Body Butter by Green Helix

Where to buy: Find Green Helix online

If you’re not already a fan of cannabis topicals, Green Helix CBD-infused Luscious Coconut Body Butter will make you a believer. Designed for all skin types, this decadent and nourishing body butter is a collagen boosting, triple antioxidant formulation powered by Green Helix’ Full Spectrum CBD. It’s also paraben-free and cruelty-free. I apply Luscious after my morning shower and before I go to bed, and it always helps with any body aches or inflammation.

Wedding Cake by Heavy Hitters

Check these menus for it:

If you’re new to cannabis, Heavy Hitters may not be the vape brand you want to start off with. As the name implies, these highly-potent vape cartridges pack quite the THC wallop—but if you’re a seasoned toker, you won’t find a more gleeful high than the one Wedding Cake provides.

The hybrid child of Girl Scout Cookies and Cherry Pie, Wedding Cake is the cartridge I reach for on evenings and weekends.

Koi CBD Fitt Starter Kit by Envii

Where to buy: Find Koi online.

Koi CBD Fitt Starter Kit by Envii is the first CBD vape I ever tried, and I still adore it. Featuring both a puff sensor and fire button, Koi’s starter kit is incredibly easy to use. More importantly, Koi products are easily accessible, no matter where you live.

Strain: Mai Tai Cookies

Check these menus for it:

With virtually zero negative side effects, (except dry mouth) Mai Tai Cookies is a CBD-rich ideal for busy work days, family gatherings, or any other event where you probably want to avoid being “too” high. I love using Mai Tai Cookies when I have a lot of writing to do because the strain leaves me feeling energized, relaxed, and euphoric—but also focused.

CBD-Infused Sodas by Sprigg

Where to buy: Find Sprigg online

Sprigg CBD-infused sodas are, in the most literal sense, deliciously chill. Each can of Sprigg boasts a whopping 20mg of high-quality, all-natural CBD, derived from agricultural hemp. Consumers can choose from Citrus Original, Citrus Zero Sugar, Sparkling Lemon Tea, or Melon—but Citrus Original is my favorite. On particularly intense days, I enjoy pairing a can of Sprigg with my lunch, but I’m a seasoned cannabis user. If your relationship with the plant is just beginning, you might want to save your first Sprigg experience for a Friday night.
