Oh, August. The sun’s beating down in all its glory. Summer is still at its peak. What better time to go “back to school”? I know I always associate the warmer months with sitting in lectures for hours and staying up late at night, studying.

But go back to college or work, we must. Which, after a couple of months of nice weather and a couple of national holidays, seems rude and jarring, frankly. There’s only one thing for it: cannabis and prayer.

As a helpful de-stressor and sleepy time friend, non-psychoactive CBD is kind of a no-brainer when it comes to getting you through the work or school day. And since everyone’s silver lining at this time of year is dopamine-inducing “back to school” retail therapy, why not indulge in it in a conscious, helpful way by stocking up on CBD supplies? We support your choices, youth and/or workers of today!

Whether you’re coming back to something, or never really left, here’s everything you need to get through the damn day.

Mineral’s Focus Tincture

I don’t know about you, but my mornings can be stressy if I do them wrong. Starting the day by doing something that calms the senses (and counterbalances that first coffee) is always a good idea. That makes first thing in the AM an ideal time to take a CBD tincture. Mineral’s Focus Tincture ain’t your typical stimulant—it aims to rebalance and settle your nerves, not jolt them with a jumper cable of pharmaceuticals.

Plant People CBD Capsules: Stay Sharp

OK, so work meetings or tutorials are happening, your day is in full swing, and you still feel lethargic (at best). Late capitalism, amirite? While a brain-boosting CBD capsule from the cannabis lords at Plant People won’t fix the modern burnout dilemma…it can’t hurt. And this blend includes both high-performance CBD and adaptogenic herbs, so hello more mental clarity and goodbye feeling dazed and confused.

Dr. Kerklaan Natural CBD Skin Cream

Everybody knows a reliable skin cream is the holy grail of desk draw supplies. It’s the kind of fun lil’ secret you don’t wanna share. But that’ll probably change when you add this Dr. Kerklaan staple to your stash. As far as topical relief goes, it’s your one-stop shop for dryness, irritation, inflammation, and itchies. It’s also a soothing self-care ritual in stressful times. Go on, share it with your work wife (but don’t be surprised when word gets around).

This glass one-hitter—which comes in gorgeous shades of pink, green, yellow, and more—is chic enough to leave on your coffee table at home, and discreet enough to carry in your work bag without attracting attention. Sometimes, at the end of a long day, you just have to smoke. This one’s for those times.

Mineral’s Sleep Tincture
