Hey everyone! D here. If you follow us on Instagram, you’ll know that I’m a member of The Healing Co. team and the voice behind all of our IGTV episodes. If you don’t follow us on Instagram, it’s a pleasure to virtually meet you.
We get a lot of questions about which cannabis products are best, when to use them, how to incorporate cannabis into daily life and how to mix and match products. With all of our products to choose from, you may be unsure of where to start.
I’m going to break down what my week looks like, what cannabis products, as well as psilocybin products I use, and why. Keep in mind that this is what works for ME and my lifestyle, and is not meant as a blanket recommendation for everyone. This article is merely a starting point if you’re looking to elevate your life and get the most out of your cannabis and psilocybin goodies!

If you’ve read our other article, “My First Time Trying Psilocybin“, you will already know that I suffer from moderate anxiety and depression. When we started carrying psilocybin products, I was incredibly excited to try them, given the fact that psilocybin reduces the frequency and intensity of undesirable mental states, including anxiety and depression.
I started microdosing the Mystic Gummies a couple months ago and can honestly say that nothing has come close to quieting my mind the way psilocybin has.
My favorite flavour is raspberry, but the rootbeer is delicious, too! You can find all our the Mystic Gummies HERE.
Strength training is a big part of my life and it’s important that I am recovering quickly in between sessions. When I’m looking to reduce localized muscle soreness and inflammation, I reach for the Vida Massage Oil by Mota, found HERE. We offer a number of different cannabis topicals, all of which are excellent, but I find I get the greatest relief with the massage oil.
It is also important that I reduce inflammation in my body and keep my stress levels down so that I can perform my best during training. For this, I reach for the 1000mg CBD Tincture in peach, found HERE. I include 20mg in my protein shake every morning, along with marine collagen and vitamin D drops. CBD has become an incredibly important part of my self care routine.
Over the last year, I have begun incorporating cannabis and psilocybin into my life even more and decreased my alcohol consumption. Don’t get me wrong, I still love the occasional glass of wine! But, when I’m looking to relax, have mind blowing sex with my partner (or myself!), or enjoy some delicious sweet treats, I reach for cannabis.
If I’m the mood for edibles (which I almost always am), I love the Boost THC Gummies in Sour Watermelon, found HERE. They taste delicious, are made with distillate, have an even and consistent dose, and have a ton of flavours to choose from (cherry is also great!). I love the body high associated with edibles and the fact that I always sleep incredibly well after taking one.
When I want to get high, but don’t want it to be an all night affair, I vape! Personally, I prefer vape pens over joints because I have a relatively low tolerance to THC and don’t like half smoked pre-rolls hanging around. My favorite vape pen is the Sovrin Extracts Clear Stick, found HERE, paired with the Super Lemon Haze cartridges, found HERE. There are a number of different vape pens and cartridges to choose from!
I’m lucky in that I don’t often have difficulty falling or staying asleep. The exception to that is when my anxiety and depression spike. When that happens, I use 10mg of the THC/CBD Sleep Tincture from Mota, found HERE, or 5mg of the Twisted Extracts ZZZ Bombs in Black Cherry, found HERE. The effects of digestible edibles last longer than that of tinctures, so I typically like a lower dose. I take the tincture 1 hour before bed or the gummy 2 hours before bed to ensure it doesn’t interfere with me waking up at 5am the next morning.
As I mentioned above, this blog article is not to meant to be a catch all for every person, merely a starting point to show you how easy it is to incorporate cannabis into your life and what a profound effect it can have on your wellbeing.
