Weathering the Storm
You sit in a chilly house, the electricity out. With only a warm blanket and a small fire in the fireplace, it’s a struggle to keep yourself warm. You nervously glance outside at the blizzard blasting outside.
The wind is whistling and the snow is forcing the house to groan and creak from the strain. An emergency broadcast had mentioned the whiteout of the century would be hitting tonight, but you never thought their guess of ten feet of snow would be so correct.
You’re caught in a winter wonderland turned mad. You’re stuck indoors, but you remember you have a stash of edibles that may help lessen your nerves and offer some comfort. Now you need to only ask yourself… What next?
Using Edibles During a Blizzard: Why Timing and Type Matter
- Be Prepared. During emergencies, like blizzards, staying alert and responsive is crucial. However, free time is of the essence!
- Which type to use? As lovely as baked brownies sound, your electric oven is not going to help you. Opting for edibles in a gummy form may make them more enjoyable as mixing them into your tea also wouldn’t be so easily done without heat. THC and CBD can offer a sense of calm and relaxation. It’s up to you to decide if you want a spicy experience or not.
- Mind the Dosage. Start with a small dose, especially if you’re not a regular user. The effects of edibles can take longer to manifest, so patience is key.
Safety First: Keeping Edibles Secure
During a blizzard, it’s essential to ensure that edibles are stored safely and out of reach, especially if children or pets are in the house.
Combat Cabin Fever
Being stuck indoors during a blizzard can be challenging. While edibles might offer some relaxation, remember they are not a solution to severe anxiety or stress. Engaging in other activities like reading, board games, or light indoor exercises can also help pass the time.
Enjoying edibles during a blizzard can add a bit of warmth and comfort to your snow day. However, it’s important to use them responsibly, considering both their effects and the necessity of staying alert during emergencies.
