Now that the Covid-19 restrictions are lifted, it is literally going back to business-as-usual for some of us. Many companies in the US are opening up and requiring their employees to return to their desks to remind themselves of the days of homework.
And while some workers have appreciated the recent office openings for their productivity and collaboration benefits, others have thrived in a home environment during the pandemic. So if you can’t sesh with your camera off during meetings, don’t despair – you have options.
Check out five products below that will make returning to the office feel a little more bearable.
Vaporizer: PAX ERA LIFE

When PAX dropped ERA Life, a busy stoner got their wings. The latest addition to its line of oil vaporizers is simple, discreet and perfect for everyday office use. The hard-wearing, thin profile can hold its own in a commuter bag or pocket.
The PAX ERA Life is always on, just pull it out of the mouthpiece for a hit. It has four heat settings that you can quickly cycle through depending on your taste and height needs, and its low odor gives you the necessary discretion when you need to take a quick, semi-private puff.
At $ 35, the PAX ERA Life is a must have when you go to the office (or stay at home).

Sublingual: Kin Slips

A sublingual streak is that employee you didn’t know you needed. Dissolvable on the tongue, these briefs deliver cannabis directly to the bloodstream quickly with effects similar to smoking instead of eating an edible.
Kin Slips is a brand that understands the art of making great sublingual strips. It mixed cannabinoids and terpenes to make strips specifically for your needs. If you sit at your desk and try to muster creativity and focus, there is a slip for it. If you need balance and calm after a strenuous meeting, there is a slip up for that too. The product line also includes sublingual strips for physical relief and sleep support.

Transdermal patches are great for returning to the office when you don’t plan to take, inhale, and re-dose throughout the day. Patches have a long history with medical patients and are now becoming increasingly popular with those seeking all-day cannabis support.
Mary’s Medicinals transdermal patches are formulated with discretion, quick onset of action and with your working day in mind. A patch can be placed on your wrist or other venous part of your body and starts working within 30 minutes. The patches stay active for 8-12 hours and are available in indica and sativa strains as well as CBD, CBG and CBN.

A few drops of cannabis tincture under the tongue or in a coffee can be an event that changes the day. Tinctures are discreet and easy to measure oils, and when placed under the tongue can usually provide relief in 30 minutes and last over an hour.
At the start of the pandemic, the Polite team launched a range of low-dose THC, full-spectrum tinctures and disposable vaporizers. Thanks to years of clinical research and therapeutic botanicals, Polite’s medically formulated products are the self-sufficiency you need when trying to strike the balance between the office and everyday life.
The Polite blends include Power Up, Daily Defense, Relief Aid, Ease Your Mind, and Rest Well. Each blend uses a combination of cannabinoids like THC, CBD, CBG, and CBN. If you’d prefer to take in another way, Polite’s mixes also come in spray and disposable vape forms.

You can’t go wrong with the versatility and unobtrusiveness of edibles. Infused brownies, candies, oils, and drinks are great for your return to office life, but if you want to add homemade edibles to your weekly meal prep, Ardent FX makes it as easy as using an easy-bake oven.
The easy-to-use all-in-one tool allows you to decarburize, infuse and bake – and control the ingredients and dosage. Infused butter, brownies and anything that needs oil or butter can be made from start to finish in the Ardent FX. If you have food restrictions or just want to make edibles, this is a great option that won’t take much time.
Remember to tag your lunch in the office refrigerator.
