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.

 Together or Solo: Exploring the Distinct Benefits of Group Versus Solo Cannabis Use


The consumption of cannabis, a practice dating back centuries, has always been surrounded by diverse cultures and social habits. In modern times, the use of cannabis has evolved into two primary contexts: social (group) consumption and individual (solo) consumption. Each method offers unique experiences and benefits, and this blog delves into the intricacies of both, helping readers understand the distinct advantages of group versus solo cannabis use.

Group Cannabis Consumption: A Social Catalyst

  1. Enhanced Social Bonding

    • Smoking cannabis in a group setting fosters a sense of camaraderie and shared experience. This communal activity often leads to deeper conversations, shared laughter, and a strengthened sense of belonging among participants. Studies have shown that shared experiences, especially those involving altered states of consciousness, can deepen social bonds.
  2. Diverse Perspectives and Experiences

    • Group settings introduce a variety of perspectives and personalities. Each individual's reaction to cannabis can differ, leading to a rich tapestry of experiences and stories. This diversity can be enlightening and entertaining, offering a broader understanding of the cannabis experience.
  3. Safety and Support

    • Consuming cannabis in a group provides a safety net. Especially for beginners or those trying new strains, having others around can offer guidance and support in case of discomfort or adverse reactions. There's also the communal aspect of looking out for each other's well-being.

Solo Cannabis Consumption: A Journey Inward

  1. Personal Reflection and Relaxation

    • Smoking cannabis alone allows for deep personal reflection and relaxation. Without the distraction of social interaction, individuals can delve into their thoughts, explore their creativity, or simply unwind. This can lead to a more introspective and often more profound experience.
  2. Controlled Environment and Experience

    • When consuming cannabis solo, one has complete control over the environment and the strain consumed. This control can lead to a more predictable and tailored experience, suitable for those who have specific therapeutic or recreational goals with their cannabis use.
  3. Mindfulness and Meditative Benefits

    • Solo consumption can be a meditative and mindful practice. By focusing on the sensations and experiences brought on by cannabis, individuals can engage in a form of mindfulness meditation, which has been shown to have numerous mental health benefits.

Comparing the Two: Context Matters

  1. The Setting's Influence on Experience

    • The choice between group and solo consumption often depends on the setting and the desired experience. Social settings like parties or gatherings naturally lend themselves to group consumption, whereas a quiet evening at home may be more suited to solo use.
  2. The Role of Personal Preference

    • Personal preference plays a significant role. Some individuals may find social interaction while under the influence of cannabis to be overwhelming, preferring the solitary experience. Others might find solo consumption to be isolating, craving the shared experience of group use.

Health and Safety Considerations

  1. Responsible Use

    • Regardless of whether cannabis is consumed alone or in a group, responsible use is paramount. This includes understanding one's limits, being aware of the strain and its effects, and ensuring a safe environment.
  2. Legal and Social Implications

    • It's important to consider the legal implications of cannabis use, which can vary greatly by region. Additionally, the social context of cannabis consumption should be considered, as it can affect relationships and social dynamics.

Conclusion: A Personal Choice with Varied Benefits

In conclusion, both group and solo cannabis consumption have their unique benefits and drawbacks. The choice between the two often comes down to personal preference, the desired experience, and the context. Understanding these differences can enhance one's cannabis experience, whether it's shared among friends or enjoyed in solitude.
