The misconception that cannabis could only make people feel lazy must stop. Here are some cannabis products you can try to get energized.
Cannabis consumption is often associated with being lazy, which is a common stereotype to cannabis users. Though it could be true to some users, the others are actually highly active.
CBD is usually one of the main ingredients of these cannabis products. CBD or cannabidiol is a component of the cannabis plant that is non-psychoactive but provides therapeutic and health benefits, while THC or tetrahydrocannabinol is often restricted but allowed within a specific amount. Though THC provides the euphoric feeling or the feeling of getting high, some energy-boosting cannabis products also contain a limited amount of it.

Go Energy Chocolate by 1906 has 5mg THC and 5mg CBD. It is available in several dispensaries in Colorado including Magnolia Road in Boulder, Lightshade in Denver, and Kind Love in Glendale.
This product could boost energy because it has caffeine, L-theanine, Galangal, and theobromine. It is retailed at around $22 to $28 and is also available in chocolate-covered coffee beans.

3. Drinkit Coffee

It is not just the cannabis-infused products that can boost energy but also certain cannabis strains—particularly sativa strains. Though not all sativas can energize users, it is more stimulating than indica strains.
Here are some strains that can help you power up according to another article from Leafly:
This strain has higher CBD levels than THC, which prevents users from being paranoid, anxious or sleepy. It only provides mild psychoactive effects allowing users to have more cognition. It also helps with pain management.
This strain, according to some users, can provide a certain buzz without weighing you down. The energizing effects may have come from the aromatherapy that this strain provides.
3. Durban Poison
It is compared to espresso by some users as this strain is stimulating. Unlike other strains, it provides the user a clearer mindset.
There are a lot of options for different cannabis users, whether you are already a veteran or just a newbie. These products could also prove that cannabis effects are not limited to feeling relaxed—cannabis can also energize you.
