Undoubtedly, the current coronavirus pandemic has taken over all of our thinking in recent weeks. COVID-19 has proven to be a threat which is not disappearing at any time soon. Countries around the world are currently battling an ever-increasing number of patients who have tested positive for the virus, and border shutdowns and other measures remain in place throughout North America and the rest of the world.
As a cannabis user then, there are a number of questions you may be asking yourself. These include, how can you stay safe during the coronavirus pandemic? This is the major question that we will try to answer with some key ways that you can protect yourself from the virus, yet continue to enjoy your favorite strains throughout.
The following steps remain applicable regardless of whether you are a recreational user, or a patient who requires marijuana for medicinal purposes. On the issue of medical marijuana and dispensaries, you will also be heartened to know that these have been categorized as “essential” businesses in LA and other places, meaning they will stay open during the outbreak.
Follow all of the Guidelines
This is the first, perhaps most important step in making sure that you stay safe from COVID-19 as a cannabis user. That is to follow the simple guidelines in place in your area, and no around the world when it comes to your personal behavior and hygiene.
Washing your hands for at least 20-30 seconds is the very first thing that you should prioritize. This applies to all situations but definitely if you are smoking cannabis. In this case, you will definitely be using your hands for contact when rolling and smoking, and so, it is vital that you make sure they are thoroughly cleaned with warm water and soap, or a reputable hand sanitizer before sitting down to enjoy your favorite strain.
In tandem with the guidelines, you should also work to ensure that if you are taking delivery of some of these products, you keep a distance of at least 2 meters from the person delivering your products. This will work as an effort to keep you both safe. Masks are something that you need not worry too much about, although the one fact about wearing a mask is that these do prevent you from touching you face. Not touching your face can be a great positive when you are trying to steer clear of coronavirus.
Get High from Home
Kicking back, getting high and enjoying your favorite cannabis products is perfectly understandable that you want to do that in the company of your favorite people. During this period though, it is most advisable that to enjoy cannabis during the coronavirus pandemic period, you should stick to being solo.
Getting high in your own does not mean you need to be alone. Yes, you probably do need to stay physically by yourself, but there are ways you can still share the experience. Why not move it online?
There are so many great online video calling platforms now available, and with many such as Zoom offering free services. This is one of the best times you will ever have to try them out. It may not be exactly the same as being in-person, but it is definitely the safest way to get all of your friends together at the same time and stay safe from coronavirus.
Not only can this group calling keep you all safe in terms of your health, but it can also be a way to beat the loneliness of self-isolation and probably a brand new and fun experience for everyone to try.
Order Online When Possible
Of course, it is great news that most medical dispensaries are staying open during this period. If you are still apprehensive about going outdoors and you want to make sure you have the best possible chances of staying healthy and coronavirus free, then the internet can be your best friend.
Even during times when there is no global health emergency taking place, the convenience of online ordering cannot be underestimated. Getting all of your favorite cannabis-related products delivered directly to your door has never been easier. This does not mean just ordering from your local supplier, but ordering from a proven and trusted online source.
With that said, if you are looking for top-quality, great value products while observing all of the required precautions to keep yourself as safe as possible from COVID-19, then simply sign up with a trusted supplier and place your first order today. You simply cannot get sick if you don’t have any face to face contact with people, and this is the most convenient way to ensure that and still get all of the products you need to get you through this period. No panic buying needed!
