Stress comes in all forms. Whether you’re stressed about an upcoming work presentation, family matters, life’s twists and turns, or the rapid approach of fall, when stress strikes it strikes hard.
While there are tried and true tested remedies for dealing with stress, such as working out, sleeping it off, or even disconnecting from social media, not every method is for everybody.
Know that there are multiple ways to consume marijuana; you can eat or drink it, rub it into your skin, vape, smoke and much more.

(Ask the budtenders at your local dispensary which products have the strains listed and then pick how you want to put it into your body.)
Cue 3 Doors Down’s 2000 Hit (yes, we are that old). Not only will this dank sativa relax you, it’s sweet aroma might make you forget what had you so worked up to begin with.

Gorilla Glue #4
I don’t know about Gorilla Glue 1, 2 or 3, but this one is definitely a winner when it comes to relieving stress. The hybrid strain is reminiscent of some Colorado woods, but beware the Glue in the name comes from the strain’s ability to have you stuck on the couch.
