Posted by Harvest Headquarters on Feb 22, 2019 11:03:48 AM

16 million people in the US suffer from depression, and 42 million have an anxiety disorder. And even for the 80% of people who don’t have a mental illness diagnosis, it’s safe to assume that most still get sad or anxious from time to time.

Emotional ups and downs are part of life. There’s no magic cure-all to eradicate them. But there are lots of ways that we can learn to cope with our sadness, whether it's only temporary or part of a longer struggle.

Microdosing with Marijuana for Lasting Emotional Stability

Posted by Harvest Headquarters on Feb 18, 2019 11:04:36 AM

 

We’ve recently been talking about many of the different ways that marijuana can benefit your emotional health. While you can find plenty of research detailing the ways cannabis is good for our bodies, our mental health (distinct from emotional health), and a long history of spiritual applications. But if you go looking for research about this wondrous plant's upsides for our emotional health, there are very few sources with anything to say.

We think this is surprising, because cannabis bears many positives for our emotions souls. Cannabinoids can cool our jets and lift our spirits. It’s been known to make good days better and prevent bad days from being sheer disasters. When we’re teetering on the edge of a meltdown, sometimes all it takes is a quick dose of cannabis to calm us down put the world back into clear focus.

Cannabis Concentrates: A Quick Route to a Happy Heart

Posted by Harvest Headquarters on Feb 7, 2019 12:04:18 PM

Daily life can be challenging. We run into obstacles that test our patience, sadden our hearts and sometimes bring out our less than desirable sides. There are coping strategies to get through these stressful moments. Ancient practices like meditation, and more modern techniques like cognitive reframing. Often, something as simple as taking a deep breath and counting to ten can give us the space we need to gain our composure.

A lot of people rely on marijuana to give them that “goosfraba” moment. People report that this healing plant stimulates a calming effect and helps them gain control over their emotions. But you can’t really start breaking up some buds at your desk the next time you might be having a really bad day.

This is where concentrates come in handy.

Cannabis: A Path to Total Wellness

Posted by Harvest Headquarters on Jan 31, 2019 9:08:02 AM

People around the world are shifting their focus from treating illness, to embracing wellness. This is evident by the astounding growth in the wellness market. The global wellness industry reached $4.2 trillion according to the 2018 Global Wellness Economy Monitor, representing a 12.8% growth over two years.

Wellness can obviously mean different things to different people. For some, it’s about nutrition, supplements and fitness. For others, it’s nurturing the mind or spirit.

At Harvest, we believe it’s about all of the above. Wellness encompasses physical, mental, spiritual, emotional, social and occupational well-being.

We’re on a mission to help people discover how cannabis can promote total wellness and help create a healthier, happier you.

Cannabis Sativa vs Indica: Which to Choose for Zen

Posted by Harvest Headquarters on Jan 22, 2019 9:52:56 AM

Before the days of legalization, few people in modern times knew anything about marijuana except that it got you "stoned." But the last decade has led to a growing awareness of the core differences between the various cannabis subspecies – cannabis sativa, cannabis indica and cannabis ruderalis – as well as the nuances among countless strains. While some certainly still view it all as “pot,” most people who consume marijuana for medicinal or recreational purposes recognize that these three subspecies have vastly different applications. When coupled with the proper knowledge and intent, cannabis can become a core part of a daily health routine that promotes balance and total wellness.
