The Benefits of Cannabis and Meditation - True North Cannabis Co

Breathe in… breathe out—it’s time to kick back, light up (if you’re in the mood), and explore the fascinating world of cannabis and mindfulness.

At True North Cannabis Co., we believe that cannabis is more than just a plant—it’s a catalyst for exploration, self-discovery, and of course, good times with good friends. So, why not take this journey to the next level and combine the mellow effects of cannabis with the serenity of meditation?

Grab your favourite strain, roll it up, pack your pipe, or fire up that vape—whatever floats your boat—and let’s discover the benefits of meditating while high! 🌿🧘

Your Guide To Meditating While High:

A More Relaxed Mind
Heightened Sensory Perception
Increased Mindfulness

What Is Meditation All About?

Meditation is a practice wherein an individual uses breathing and focusing techniques to achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm state. Meditation techniques often include mindfulness practices that have you centre your thoughts. Typically, the goal of meditation is to help you relax, minimize anxiety, and reduce stress.

Regular meditation can also support homeostasis and internal stability. Experts believe that while meditation can help in the moment, it can also change your brain for the better over a longer period of time. Ultimately, these meditation-induced changes should lead to decreased levels of anxiety and depression, as well as an overall increase in quality of life.

How To Meditate:

  1. Find a quiet space where you can sit cross-legged and upright or on a chair with your feet flat on the floor. Maintain an upright posture without leaning back against the chair if you do decide to sit on one.
  2. Place your palms down on your thighs and relax. Keep your eyes open, and let your gaze rest comfortably as you look slightly downward in front of you.
  3. Be mindful of your breathing during meditation. You’re going to want to breathe from the belly with a full, gentle breath in. And then do a full, gentle breath out. It’s all about discovering your own rhythm and pace.
  4. Relax as you settle into the moment. Take notice of the thoughts and feelings that start to arise. If you notice that a thought is starting to take your attention away from the breath, just focus on your breathing instead.
  5. Wrap up your meditation sessions once you’ve fully immersed yourself in a sense of calm, mindfulness, and stability. Try to see if you can retain this feeling throughout the day!

3 Reasons Why Weed and Meditation Go Hand-in-Hand

When you combine the right strain with proper meditation techniques, you’re bound to experience a wonderful sense of relaxation and a deeper connection between your mind and body.

Cannabis can further amplify the positive effects of meditation and contribute to an overall sense of well-being. Here’s a closer look at the benefits of meditating while high:

1. A More Relaxed State of Mind

Weed and meditation can synergize to relax your mind and body.

Studies have shown that at low doses, weed can reduce levels of stress, tension, and anxiety. Since meditation is all about achieving a calmer mindset, the positive effects of cannabis may help you reach this state more effectively. When used responsibly, cannabis can complement meditation, deepening relaxation and easing you into a more meditative state.

CBD—one of the major cannabinoids found in cannabis—may also help to regulate mood by assisting the brain in producing serotonin, also known as your body’s “happy chemical.”

2. Heightened Sensory Perception

Meditation is also about achieving sharpened present-moment awareness through heightened senses, which again plays well with cannabis.

Some strains can enhance senses and awareness of your surroundings by binding with receptors in the brain. If you enjoy this sensation, it can effectively contribute to your meditation efforts, making it easier to stay attuned to the present moment.

3. Increased Mindfulness

CBD has been shown to improve concentration, focus, and attention—all necessary when trying to increase mindfulness and a meditative state.

Cannabis can facilitate introspection during meditation, leading to profound insights and self-discovery. Combining weed and meditation can stregthen the mind-body connection, fostering a sense of unity and wholeness.

For some, cannabis can inspire a new level of creativity in meditation, encouraging innovative approaches to the practice.
