Going to Grad School: Tips for Using Pot From Your Favorite Denver Dispensaries

August 19, 2020

The school year is almost here and it’s looking like classes will be held both in-person and virtually this year. For most graduate students, this means slightly more freedom and flexibility in your daily routine. If you’re like most students, you’re starting to think that the fall semester is the perfect time to embrace Colorado’s legal recreational marijuana use. Now is the time to stock up on great products from the best weed shops in Denver, but before you do, here are a few tips to help you get the most out of your cannabis use while you work on your advanced degree.

Set Clear Use Times
Some people experience enhanced focus and feelings of creativity when they get high, but that doesn’t mean that you will. Until you figure out how your favorite cannabis products affect you, set clear use times. Instead of taking cannabis before a class, wait until the end of the day so you can focus on what your professors are saying. Once you know how the cannabis will impact your clarity of thought, you can start using it at different times if you want to.

Avoid Going to Class High
When you’re attending classes through Zoom meetings, there’s a big temptation to get high before you meet. Don’t. Just because you’re not attending class in person doesn’t mean your professors won’t notice that you’re high. Remember, you’re paying for the degree and you need to get as much as you can out of each class for your school year to be worth your investment.

Try New Things Often
Just because your academic life involves a lot of routine doesn’t mean other aspects of your life need to. Use this to your advantage. Try new products from your favorite Denver dispensaries often. This will allow you to experience different strains and try new ways of getting high. Make a note of the products you love so you can buy them again in the future. 

Look for New Ways to Relax
Using cannabis responsibly is a wonderful way to make your grad school experience less stressful. However, that doesn’t mean you have to depend on it to keep you relaxed and focused. You can find more creative ways to take breaks from your studies without indulging in cannabis. Go for a hike and enjoy all that Colorado has to offer, take a yoga class, meditate, or watch your favorite show. You can still enjoy those activities without your favorite weed.  

Start the School Year Off Right
