How to Survive Thanksgiving Using Cannabis

If you’ve already started wondering how to survive Thanksgiving this year, you’re in good company. I’m right there with you. With Turkey Day right around the corner, the hustle and bustle of the season is starting to get real, so I’m going to let you in on my holiday survival secret: cannabis. Yes, cannabis. No rule states you have to go through the holidays fully on your own.

If you’re looking for products that can help you make it through this delicious but hectic day, these are my top recommendations for Thanksgiving survival.

Surviving Thanksgiving Tip #1: Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate

Staying hydrated is key to survival.

Yeah, you could get a little sloshed on mulled wine this Thanksgiving and suffer a hangover the next day. Or, you could opt for an alcohol-free holiday. The choice is yours, but with these incredible cannabis infused beverages — trust me, spirits will remain high. 

If you’re looking for a slight buzz, try the Happi Raspberry Honeysuckle seltzer. Infused with 5mg of THC, this sweet-tart berry flavor will have you feeling fine. 

Need something a little stronger to deal with your parents or your cranky, slightly creepy uncle? Go for one of the Botanical Brewing Company’s compliant Delta-9 seltzers. In two flavors, Perfect Pear or Lemon Pound Cake, this alcohol-free sparkling drink has 10mg of delta-9 THC

Last but not least, if you’re looking to get super loosey goosey on Thanksgiving, reach for a Delta Beverages Delta-9 Live Resin Seltzer. Coming in at 25mg, this Delta Cannabis Water will have you living your best post-Thanksgiving dinner life. Available in both Sativa and Indica strains, welcome to sippable bliss. 

And since it’s the holidays, get fancy — pour these cannabis infused beverages into cocktail or wine glasses. Cheers!

Surviving Thanksgiving Tip #2: Fight anxiety

Surviving Thanksgiving means combating anxiety.

According to the American Psychological Association, 38 percent of people say their stress and anxiety increases during the holiday season. So if you feel your anxiety rising, know you’re not alone. 

If being around your family is just too damn much and you feel your anxiety reaching new heights, you absolutely will want to nom on one or two of these Nimo Soothe Gummies

With 10mg of Delta-8 in each gummy, these sweet peach flavored gummies also have GABA, L-Theanine, and Lemon Balm. What exactly does this mean? These Nimo gummies will give you a clear and calming high without the feeling of anxiety or confusion. 

Fast-acting, the Nimo Soothe Gummies will have you feeling good without being slowed down. See, figuring out how to survive Thanksgiving just got a lot easier.

Surviving Thanksgiving Tip #3: Get optimal sleep

Getting enough sleep is how to survive Thanksgiving. In fact, it’s the only way to get through the holidays. Getting enough sleep leading up to the holiday is key, as well as getting a bountiful amount of the night before the big day.

If you want to make sure you sleep well this holiday season, you will want to get these Viia Hemp Dream gummies. With 10mg of Delta-9 THC, 15mg of CBN, and 30mg full spectrum CBD, you’ll get the ultimate relaxation and sleep experience. Plus, not only will you fall asleep fast but you’ll stay asleep.

Worried about waking up groggy? Don’t worry — these gummies will simply rejuvenate you and get you ready for family, food, and fun. Happy snoozing!

Surviving Thanksgiving Tip #4: Stay upbeat

In the same way holiday stress and anxiety occurs, so do holiday blues. If you feel a little down in the dumps during the “most wonderful time of the year,” don’t worry — you’re not alone. Luckily, there are cannabis products to help you make it through the season.

To keep your spirits bright, I can’t recommend the 3Chi Happy Tincture enough. This broad spectrum hemp extract tincture features Delta-8 THC, as well as other cannabinoids such as CBC, CBT, CBG, and of course, CBD. And yes, this happy oil will leave you feeling upbeat, heady, and happy. 

Sometimes you gotta fake it ’till you make it, so if you’re need a little mood boost this Thanksgiving, there is no shame in adding a product or two to your how to survive Thanksgiving plans.

Surviving Thanksgiving Tip #5: Stay alert

Thanksgiving is not a sprint — it’s a marathon. If you’re wondering how to survive Thanksgiving, it’s important to keep this in mind. 

Whether you’re hosting, traveling across the country to see friends, or headed to your folks’ house for a meal with all the trimmings, my best advice to get through the day scot-free is to always stay alert. If you’re like “Okay Holly, what does this actually mean?” It simply means to keep checking in with yourself. 

If at any point in time you feel like you need a pick-me-up, reach for your Terp8 Pot of Gold Disposable Dab Bar for instant relief. A hit or two of this and you’ll feel oh-so-good … you won’t even care if you burned the turkey, forgot to peel the mashed potatoes, or skipped a step in making Grandma’s corn soufflé recipe. 

Surviving Thanksgiving Tip #6: Boost your immunity

Thanksgiving is a time to gather. From Friendsgiving parties to seeing family to spending more time in grocery store check-out lines, you’re going to be around a lot of people. 

No how to survive Thanksgiving plan would make sense without an immunity booster. To proactively keep yourself from getting sick, make sure you have doTERRA OnGuard essential oils

This proprietary essential oil blend offers a natural and highly effective alternative for immune support. You can take it internally on a daily basis, as well as use it as a non-toxic cleaner. Plus, you can also diffuse doTERRA OnGuard to help uplift and purify the air. 

Anything you can do to boost your immunity during this time of year is key to making it through the chaos of the holidays.

Get baked this Thanksgiving

When it comes to surviving Thanksgiving, you gotta do what you gotta do. There’s no harm in turning to cannabis. In fact, it may be the key ingredient to making your season the merriest one yet. No matter what you get into this Turkey Day, I wish you a day of peace, joy, family, friends, delicious food, and the endless benefits of cannabis.
