Catching a buzz and being productive usually do NOT go hand-in-hand, but here at BLNCD, we believe in elevated experiences that stimulate not only the mind and body, but also lift the spirit. In today’s post, we’ll share inspiring activities and practices tailored to different types of highs, whether you’re seeking energetic harmony or blissful chill. 

Recently, we’ve been sparking our own creativity with BLNCD’s new line of adaptogenic mushroom THC gummies and beverages. A great place to start for those new to functional mushrooms and/or cannabis edibles, we offer two mellow and effective blends with uniquely individual effects: Brain Boost offers sharpened mental clarity and focus, while Zen Blend delivers a relaxing, euphoric high.

Terpene & Functional Mushroom 101

Before diving into the fun stuff, it’s important to understand the role that cannabis terpenes and functional mushroom blends play in enhancing your high. Terpenes are compounds found in the cannabis plant that contribute to its flavor and aroma, but also influence the user’s mood and experience. For example, our Zen Blend contains terpenes like myrcene and linalool, known for their calming and relaxing effects, while BLNCD Brain Boost blend features terpenes such as limonene and pinene, which promote focus and energy.

Similarly, mushroom blends like Reishi, Lion’s Mane, and Chaga offer incredible benefits that help support mental well-being and cognitive sharpness. Functional mushrooms have been used for centuries in traditional, eastern and holistic medicine, and are prized for their mood-enhancing and brain-stimulating adaptogenic properties.

Meditation & Mindfulness: Pair calming THC strains and mushroom blends with meditation practices to engage deep thoughts, center yourself and relieve stress. Take a few moments each day to sit quietly and cultivate that sense of inner peace everyone’s always talking about.Or take a few moments and follow this guided root chakra grounding meditation.

Commune with Nature: There’s nothing better than the great outdoors when you’re seeking a bit of enlightenment. Try outdoor meditation sessions, tai chi or yoga to enhance relaxation and connect with the environment — nature has the profound ability to soothe your mind and boost your serotonin. And the best part? It’s free.

Take Time for Yourself: We often bring stress and anxiety into our downtime with us, but it’s important to regularly relax and recalibrate for your mental health. If you’ve got a lot on your plate, a simple night in is an easy option. Crack a functional mushroom and cannabis beverage to lift your spirits and take the time to fix yourself a special meal, enjoy a bubble bath, or flip on your favorite vinyl record. It’s the little things!

Boost your Mood & Enliven the Body and Mind

Creative Expression: Zone in on inspiration! Try artistic activities like painting, drawing, or writing and let your creativity flow. Explore new mediums, feel the music, craft with friends, get out of your comfort zone, make an art mess and don’t be afraid to express yourself. Immersing yourself in creativity is one of the most fulfilling mental resets out there.

Engage the Brain: With uplifting cannabis strains and functional mushroom blends, finding a stimulating activity is the name of the game, quite literally. Dive into puzzles, brain teasers, strategic thinking exercises or logic games, or think bigger and set your mind to learning a language, picking up a musical instrument, or discovering a new hobby – the possibilities are truly endless.

A Night Out, Sans Alcohol: Ditch the alcohol in favor of a mushroom and THC beverage for a mindful twist on your next night out. Immerse yourself in the energy of the dance floor, hit an art opening or meet up with friends for an impromptu adventure heightened by subtle euphoria. Unlike alcohol, cannabis alternatives offer a mindful experience that enhances the party – minus the hangover!

Productive Pursuits: Channel the uplifting vibes of brain-boosting THC and mushroom blends into productive tasks and healthy activities. Enhance your runner’s high or boost adrenaline with a robust hike in the woods. Dream up a great business idea, plan your next road trip or simply get serious about your to-do list. That junk drawer isn’t going to organize itself, you know.

At the end of the day, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to enhancing your high. Find your own perfect balance by experimenting with different THC strains and terpene blends. Keep your mind engaged and shape your high into a positive, even productive experience. Whether you’re seeking relaxation, focus, inspiration, personal insight or healing, approaching the experience of a cannabis and mushroom high is all about self-awareness and moderation – start low and go slow as they say!
