VIBE CHECK: Sesh Essential Oil Blends
New SESH Essential Oil Blends elevate your vibe!
Put down the Nag Champa and elevate your next smoke sesh with essential oils! Essential oils and cannabis both contain terpenes. Terpenes are tiny volatile scent molecules that influence the therapeutic effects on the mind and body when using Cannabis. Combining cannabis and aromatherapy completely elevates the countless benefits of terpenes and the overall cannabis experience!
Heighten the vibe by pairing your flower with similar smelling essential oils. You can start by matching the terpenes in your cannabis with the terpenes in the essential oils to mutually boost their effects. Or if you are smoking an energetic strain and find it too intense, use a relaxing essential oil blend to encourage balance. Try our SESH BLENDS or make your own aromatherapy blend but diffusing these essential oils!
STIMULATE & CREATE:
Vibe Check: Productive, Adventurous, Uplifted
Get jazzed! Narrow-leaf or Sativa strains like Maui Wowi, Green Crack, and Tangie are known for their stimulating characteristics. Energizing strains commonly feature the terpenes Limonene, Pinene, Caryophyllene, and Linalool. Look for strains that have grapefruit, tangerine, or citrus smells. I would pair these strains with a blend of essential oils with similar terpene profiles as well as energizing and uplifting energetics.
Starting with my favourite: Clary Sage opens us up to our dream world. It creates space for clarity, creativity and imagination. The citrus family of Grapefruit, Mandarin, Bitter and Sweet Orange, and Tangerine also encourages cheer and creativity. Key Lime brings a zest for life. Fir Balsam is the joy of walking barefoot through a crisp forest. Cypress is an oil of motion and flow. And of course Tangerine and Lemon bring brightness, cheer, and creativity.
IN DA COUCH, RELAX: INDICA STRAINS
Vibe check: Comfortable, Stoned, Care-free
Broad-leaf marijuana or Indicas are known for their calming and sedative effects. Used as a sleep aid or for your next Netflix binge these strains will put you “in da couch”.
Popular indicas are dominated by Myrcene and Caryophyllene terpenes. They include Granddaddy Purple, Bubba Kush, Blue Cheese, and Platinum OG. Strains with leather, chocolate and earthy scents.
To find your maximum chill try diffusing some calming essential oils like Lavender, Cedarwood and basil to release nervous tension. Juniper is known as the oil of the night. Ravensara can help treat insomnia. Bergamot and petitgrain are relaxing while uplighting. A few drops of Cilantro can facilitate the release of negative emotions, and a drop or two of Spikenard to bring gratitude for the day and contentment for what you have.
PUFF PUFF LAUGH:
Vibe Check: Connection, reassuring, balancing
Invite some friends over and elevate the whole experience with a community blend. Get everyone to pitch some of their favourite greenery, and roll up a big ‘ole salad finger. I really like to smoke balancing strains with the homies. Cannabis that smells like berries, grapes and florals. Strains like Oregon Grape, Lavender Royal, Melonade, or the classic Blue Dream.
For our essential oil pairing, Cedarwood encourages us to create bonds. Lavender encourages communication and calm. Marjoram, Neroli, and Benzoin connect us in a shared purpose. Lime makes us happy to be alive! Patchouli is grounding and stabilizing. Bergamot to uplift. Jasmine for harmony and relaxation.
Vibe Check: Flow State, Harmony, Meditation
Smell all your stash jars. Which one brings you joy?
Roll up your favourite strain. Get comfortable. Breathe. Toke. Be.
The classic essential oil for meditation is Sandalwood. Bergamot encourages self-acceptance. Clary Sage, chamomile, and copaiba balsam enhance clarity and spiritual purpose. Basil increases our natural energy and flow. Patchouli is grounding, familiar, and connects the spirit and body. Spikenard for gratitude. Geranium for love and trust. Cypress reminds us of the thrill of being alive.
