It is safe to say that in the last decade, the world has witnessed a(n) (r)evolution of the public attitude towards cannabinoids. Whereas before, the “only” cannabinoid considered was THC-rich marijuana and its recreational use. Today, we have realized that THC is not the only cannabinoid but that most of them, especially CBD, have important uses. Medical use has been the focus of most of the questions and research regarding CBD, and rightly so, considering all the benefits of its use. But maybe now is the time to look back again and review CBD through its specific strains. Today, the focus is on GG#4, but it has to make our time with friends more enjoyable and fulfilling in a social setting and the potency.
But first, let us review some of the key concepts regarding CBD and vaping.
What is CBD?
CBD is short for cannabidiol, a type of cannabinoid, a specific substance mostly found in plants ( phytocannabinoids), such as cannabis, that has certain effects on humans body-mind. That is because our own bodies also produce cannabinoids ( endocannabinoids) that latch onto cannabinoid receptors ( CB1 and CB2) found on certain cells in our body, including some brain cells (CB1). While THC ( tetrahydrocannabinol) can bind to those receptors and activate them, producing psychotropic effects ( feeling of getting high), CBD can only modify intrinsic human cannabinoids’ effects and therefore does not produce the effect of feeling high. How can we benefit from it then in a social setting? I’ll address this question shortly.
How can CBD be used?
We can say that you have two main uses of CBD. The first would be the more traditional way, using plants rich in CBD and smoking them like a weed, whether in a joint or a pipe. The second one, nowadays much more popular and safer, is through industrially gained CBD oil. That oil can be administered sublingually as drops, as a massage oil for sore muscles, or the most popular and easy way is using vape pens.
What is the gG#4 strain?
We are getting closer to the point in the article’s title, but we have one more thing to address first. That is, what kind of strain is GG#4? Gorilla Glue #4 is an award-winning Indica dominated strain of CBD prefilled vape cartridges. It owes its name to the resin that collects on the scissors when trimming and its “couch gluing” effect.
Getting social with GG#4 strain
After dealing with the more technical and, if you will, “serious” aspects of CBD use, it is time to relax back into its recreational applications. Some people, upon finding out that CBD has no “getting high” effect that THC has, wrongly deduce that due to this fact, CBD has no “fun” uses that traditional pot has. This holiday season was the perfect opportunity to test this claim.
Being a more introverted person, I have found some social settings like board meetings, big concerts, crowded bars, etc., to bring about anxious feelings. Somehow, you can find yourself feeling a bit tense and “in the head” in these kinds of situations.
Maybe you avoided using them when hanging out with close friends or family. So with Christmas coming, Christmas Eve was the perfect opportunity to try your favorite GG4 Vape in a more familiar and relaxed setting.
Traditionally, Christmas Eve is the time for the closest friends and get-togethers at a friend’s house for a relaxed house party of sorts. By vaping GG#4 strain, you can become even more relaxed and spontaneous than usual, which is thought impossible in this setting. Enjoying so much sharing stories, our ups and downs of this year, and a general feeling of unity and friendship.
A More Holistic Get-Togethers
Our users had some doubts about getting social with CBD vapes but also wanted to experiment more. ” In the next couple of days, being a holiday period of mostly enjoying my time with friends and family, I tried vaping GG#4 strain during the day, but Goji OG and Blue Dream CBD vape strains,”- a customer said.
Goji OG is a Sativa – dominant hybrid with a fruity taste and uplifting, happy, and euphoric effect. Blue Dream is also a Sativa – dominant hybrid that produces calming, creative euphoria but without a sedative effect.
Vaping GG#4 strain is for many – most enjoyable at night, in a relaxed, laid back setting, best when chilling and chatting with friends. Blue Dream, on the other hand, is better during day time. Like, when engaging in a creative endeavor, like helping your brother build a dog house ( it makes you very proactive). Goji OG proved to be a great all-rounder, effective in both day and night time and active and more chill-out settings.
Our final verdict is that even though CBD oil benefits, including CBD vapes, are and should remain at the forefront of its application, we would be very wrong to push aside its social and leisure uses since it can enrich our personal experience immensely.
