Make sure to socialize with people who are healthy and ensure those who feel a bit under the weather simply stay home.

After some ups and downs, everyone has found themselves in the midst of a new COVID-19 wave, prompted by the Omicron variant. Despite many people now being virus veterans, it’s still important to take care and extra precautions. This includes cannabis, especially revolving around the traditional communal aspect of it.

While there’s no need to stop smoking altogether, there are a few things to take into account for when consuming cannabis in a social-distancing way.
 
Marijuana use has long been associated with community: cannabis lounges, joints and bongs are oftentimes activities that are shared. Even smoking at home with a few friends can make a person think twice if the vaccination status of fellow consumers is not known.
 
Here are a few actions to keep a person and everyone around thm safer while consuming weed in the midst of COVID-19.

 

Don’t share joints and bongs

Whether it’s kissing or sharing a smoking device, swapping spit these days can make everyone a little paranoid. Make sure to socialize with people who are healthy and ensure those who feel a bit under the weather simply stay home.

Consider an alternative to sharing joints and bongs, such as carrying a personal vape pen or having some weed on hand to smoke on one’s own.

If missing the sense of sharing weed with others, there are alternatives. At-home testing is one option to help ensure everyone at a gathering is safe. Limit get-togethers to trusted people, as well as provide tests or make sure attendees get tested beforehand, to help eliminate some sources of stress.

Don’t smoke when ill

When battling a cold, flu or infection, hot smoke will only irritate the lungs and likely make symptoms and cough worse. While THC and CBD have anti-inflammatory and pain-killing properties, it’s important to take into account the method of consumption and to speak with a doctor.

Cannabis has a complex effect on one’s immune system and a pandemic is surely not be the best time to experiment with health.

Consider consuming edibles

If one is healthy and wants to avoid sharing entirely, edibles are a good option to try. Nowadays, edibles come in all shapes and sizes, and are meant to be shared or consumed alone.

For people who want to add a personalized touch, trying baking their own and bringing them to trusted friends and family. Prevent freakouts by consuming small doses, avoiding triggers and drinking plenty of water.
