Ballard Beat CBD Tincture from Craft Elixirs
This tasty blueberry and citrus-infused tincture deliver a relaxing dose of CBD that’ll keep you from attacking the office copy machine. Warning: These tinctures contain some THC, so a light dose is advisable.
CBD Caps from Northwest Cannabis Solutions
It’s as easy as popping a pill, but so much more healthful. These CBD capsules deliver 10 mg of CBD that’ll keep you at a mellow yet productive keel as you navigate the day’s challenges.
If you have to bring the office home with you, but still want to relax, we have a variety of low-impact strains that will keep you energized and on-point. You’ll still be confident in your ability to work, but you won’t have that cracked-out feeling you get from pulling a far-too-long day.
A cross between Chocolate Thai and Canalope Haze, this sativa mitigates stress while delivering an energetic, creative, and clear-headed high. We love the sweet coffee flavor.
Descended from a Haze hybrid mixed with Northern Lights #5 and Shiva Skunk, this sativa-dominant strain is famous for its blissful yet clear-headed high. Bonus points for the spicy pine flavor.
If you actually got all your work done and just want to unwind, reward yourself with a stoney indica! We generally prefer something that’s not too intense–on a work night it’s usually better to mellow out than to trip out.
This violet-tinted strain smells like grape-flavored bubble gum and delivers a soothing and carefree buzz. Bonus points for looking pretty!
A tart nose gives way to a cherry-flavored exhale just as an initial euphoria blends into pleasant sleepiness. And the day’s anxiety just melts away…
