Traditional societal views might suggest that the average cannabis user isn't someone who excels at work, but it's important to know that this isn't the truth. Provided that you use cannabis responsibly, this natural substance can actually augment your value as an employee — regardless of whether or not your company is aware of your cannabis usage. Talk to someone at your local cannabis dispensary to discuss how you want to augment your career with the help of cannabis, and he or she can recommend a strain and provide some usage tips that will assist you. Here are three career-related boosts that you might experience.
The ability of cannabis to relax you can help you to become more of an energized employee. When you don't sleep well — perhaps having your sleep interrupted from eating too late, or from nightmares that result from watching TV right before bed — you'll feel slugging throughout the workday. A lack of energy, of course, can get in the way of your ability to do your job. If you consume a moderate amount of cannabis in the evening, it can be instrumental to helping you unwind and sleep better. The result of better sleep will be more energy the following day at work.
Those in various artistic fields such as music and visual arts have often relied on cannabis as a way to enhance their creativity. Not everyone needs to be creative at his or her job, but people in many vocations can benefit from more creativity. For example, if you work as a social media consultant, you may be constantly looking for a new social media campaign that will hopefully go viral. Using some cannabis on evenings and weekends may improve your ability to be creative, which could be the catalyst for your next big idea at work.
Many people find that cannabis consumption helps them to be more sociable. For example, an introvert might feel more compelled to talk to those around him or her upon using cannabis. While you can't use cannabis at work to be more sociable, you may notice that occasional use gets you out of your shell, so to speak — and this can help you to be more sociable with those at your place of work. This doesn't mean just spending the day being chatty. Rather, it can mean feeling excited about collaborative projects that you can tackle together.
