Organic Care of California BLOG

 Here is a few Blogs written by the owners Chaz & Shantel Cornellier about the industry and things they have experienced or learned while owning a cannabis delivery service in Chico, Ca in 2017 under Prop 215 and then moving to Sacramento to own a State Liscensed Delivery, C9-0000003-LIC, immediately in 2018. It has been a crazy ride and Chaz loves to explain what the market is doing and how he sees the company doing in the near future.

Winter Warmth: The Best Cannabis Strains for Chilly Nights


Winter Warmth: The Best Cannabis Strains for Chilly Nights

As the winter chill sets in, many seek comfort in warm blankets, hot beverages, and, for some, the soothing embrace of cannabis. For enthusiasts looking to warm up during the colder months, certain cannabis strains offer a cozy respite. In this blog, we'll explore the top cannabis strains that can help keep you warm in winter, focusing on their unique terpenes and the science behind that toasty feeling.

1. The Science of Cannabis and Warmth

Cannabis interacts with the body's endocannabinoid system, which plays a role in regulating various functions, including temperature perception. THC, the psychoactive compound in cannabis, can influence the hypothalamus, the brain's thermostat, leading to a subjective feeling of warmth. Additionally, cannabis-induced relaxation can enhance blood flow, contributing to a sensation of warmth.

2. Top Terpenes for Winter Warmth

Terpenes, the aromatic compounds in cannabis, not only define the strain's scent and flavor but also contribute to its effects. For winter warmth, look for strains rich in the following terpenes:

  • Myrcene: Known for its sedative properties, myrcene can help relax the muscles and mind, making it easier to feel cozy and warm.
  • Caryophyllene: Offers a spicy, warming sensation and is also known for its anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Limonene: Provides a citrusy uplift that can enhance mood on dreary winter days.

4. Tips for Enjoying Cannabis in Winter

  • Stay Hydrated: Cannabis can sometimes cause dry mouth, so it's important to drink plenty of fluids.
  • Create a Cozy Setting: Enhance your experience with soft lighting, warm blankets, and perhaps a hot beverage.
  • Moderation is Key: Especially for new users, it's important to start with a small amount to understand how a particular strain affects you.

5. Conclusion

While cannabis can't physically increase your body temperature, it can alter your perception of warmth, making those cold winter nights a bit more bearable. Remember, the best strain is one that suits your personal preferences and needs. Always consume responsibly and consider the laws in your area.

Enjoy the warmth of these delightful strains and have a cozy winter!
