Jumpstart Vacation Mode In Two Gummies Or Less
I have a hard time relaxing even when all the conditions are right. Enter tiny, delicious weed gummies.
With the pace of life always accelerating these days, getting to unwind from work and family stresses can be a challenge even in the most optimal circumstances. Take this recent experience of mine as an example: A few weeks ago, I found myself in a picturesque scene. I was basking in the desert heat while poolside at a post-modern home in Palm Springs. Despite being surrounded by some of my best friends, I continually found myself going through a mental checklist of all the responsibilities I left back home. Sound familiar?
Well, I wasn’t about to let stress derail my whole weekend, so I decided to try some Sour Watermelon Gummies by Plus for the first time. Plus describes their gummies as sativa-heavy candies that produce an “awesome yet functional high.” Check. Coincidentally, they happen to be low-calorie candies made with natural, kosher ingredients. Double check. My friends were well on their way into vacation mode, and I was banking on these gummies to help get me there, too. Everything in my immediate surroundings was begging me to unwind a bit, so I took the plunge and started with a single piece of candy containing 5mg of THC.
“A cool glass of rosé topped off the gummy and left my taste buds feeling delightfully bougie without being basic.”
The gummy’s sugary, strawberry-watermelon flavor quickly dissolved on my tongue, leaving the slightest bit of cannabis aftertaste. Being a frequent edible user, I didn’t expect much to happen for at least an hour. But within less than ten minutes, I began to relax and settle into my high. I felt uplifted—which is important to the maintenance of vacation vibes—along with a subtle head high. It was pulling me up towards the towering palm trees while the stress of my “real” life was noticeably fading away into the desert landscape.
I’m not usually a big drinker, but in the scorching desert heat I paired Plus with a glass of rosé. If I do say so myself, it was the perfect pairing. A cool glass of rosé topped off the gummy and left my taste buds feeling delightfully bougie without being basic. The highs from the wine and the gummy proved to be supremely complimentary, buoying my mood while keeping my body relaxed and down to earth. In my experience, edibles and alcohol rarely go well together and tend to leave me feeling bogged down. But in this case, the relatively small amounts of both wine and weed (my tolerance is typically a couple glasses and 10mg, respectively) left me feeling more than alright—I felt downright blissful. In my book, that’s called a win-win.
