It’s that time of year again – when we all make lofty goals for ourself for next year. Some of us are better at sticking to them than others. Let’s take a look at the top resolutions this year and how cannabis can help you stick to them.
A YouGov survey found that the top New Year’s resolutions for 2020 are:
- Exercise More
- Save Money & Stick to a Budget
- Eat Healthy
- Lose Weight
- Reduce Stress
- Get More Sleep
- Focus on Spiritual Growth
- Travel More
- Learn a new Skill
Now that we’re all relegated to working out at home or outside, it can be hard to find the motivation. We suggest finding a buddy who can help keep you accountable and giving cannabis a try.
Cannabis and exercise can go hand in hand. Whether you choose to consume cannabis before or after exercising, it can help with motivation and recovery. A recent research study by the University of Colorado-Boulder found that 8 in 10 cannabis users, in states where cannabis is legal, consume cannabis before or after a workout. 52% of those who use marijuana and exercise reported being more motivated to work out, 70% said it boosted their enjoyment in the workout, and 78% claimed it improved their recovery. So why not give cannabis a try and see if it helps your performance. Just be careful as cannabis can impair your coordination.

Save Money & Stick to a Budget
There are a lot of ways to cut back. Staying in, cooking at home, and drinking less are just some of the ways. Cannabis is the perfect partner for a night in. Enjoy a joint or edible, pick up a good book or put on a movie, and curl up with a blanket. You’ll feel great and you’ll save money by not going out.

Eat More Healthy
Drinking less alcohol is part of making your diet more healthy. Numerous studies have found that consumers drink less when they consume cannabis. It’s no surprise that alcohol isn’t healthy on its own and it can also lead to overeating or bad food choices once you’ve had a few drinks. Cue late night Postmates fast food orders.
If you’re looking to let off a little steam, instead of drinking alcohol, try smoking a joint. Depending on how you consume it, cannabis has zero to minimal calories and it doesn’t produce the dreaded hangover you feel with alcohol. You’ll feel better in the morning and your waistline will thank you.
This goes hand in hand with exercising more and eating healthy. Cannabis can help with motivation for working out, recovery after working out, and cutting out alcohol. Did you also know cannabis can actually help you reduce your appetite? Studies have shown that a less common cannabinoid called THCV can actually curb your appetite.

Stress is one of the biggest complaints our customers have. Anxiety and stress can wreak havoc on your life and your health. It’s important to relax, breathe, and reduce stress. There are numerous cannabis products designed to reduce stress especially those containing CBD. Whether you’re looking to smoke, eat, or drink, there are a lot of options to choose from.
Get More Sleep
Sleep is another one of the top concerns our customers have. Stress, anxiety, diet, lifestyle, and more can all play a part in affecting your sleep. Cannabis can provide some relief. CBN is a powerful cannabinoid that can help induce sleep. Look for products with THC, CBD, and CBN for a quick trip to dreamland. Nano5 Tranquility and Wyld Elderberry gummies are two great choices.
Focus on my spiritual growth
Spirituality means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. If you’re looking to take a deeper look within, cannabis can help. Try cannabis before meditation to help shed the ego.
While cannabis can’t help you physically travel more, it can help you travel in your own head. If you want to take a trip, up your dose of THC and put on some relaxing music or a movie. If you’ve never tried Dark Side of the Rainbow, 2021 may be your year.
Learn a new skill
Learning a new skill requires patience and focus. Cannabis can help. A motivating sativa can keep you focused and dedicated whether you’re trying to learn how to knit or teach yourself how to code. Give cannabis a try and see if it helps you!
