3 Vitamins You Should Be Mixing With Cannabis

Fuel your body with what it needs most.

Did you know that certain vitamins can level out your high? By that, I mean providing additional benefits and enhancing the experience cannabis already provides. 

While using vitamins with cannabis does not make you higher, it can promote a more clarifying, calm, and comforting high that reduces stress, anxiety, and THC-induced paranoia

When eating certain foods rich in vitamins, chances are, those foods are also rich in terpenes. Terpenes are natural aromatic compounds in foods and plants that benefit the mind and body. When using them along with cannabis, it promotes a phenomenon known as the entourage effect and can make you higher. 

Whether you’re taking supplements or sourcing your vitamins from terpene-rich foods, here are the vitamins you should mix with cannabis.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is known to repair tissue, form collagen in bones, and is crucially involved in the enzymatic production of specific neurotransmitters.

We need Vitamin C to heal, and whether you’re feeling under the weather or want to boost your immune system, this vitamin can enhance your cannabis experience when taken with foods rich in Vitamin C and terpenes.

Foods rich in Vitamin C with beneficial terpenes include:

  • Oranges
  • Lemons
  • Kiwis
  • Mangoes
  • Bell Peppers
  • Strawberries

Vitamin C also helps strengthen the skin’s barrier, which helps fight off bacteria and other radicals from absorbing. It also encourages the production of white blood cells, which explains why it’s vital for the immune system.

Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6, aka pyridoxine, is crucial for brain development and maintaining a healthy nervous and immune system. This particular vitamin is present in the following foods:

  • Fish
  • Beef
  • Poultry
  • Potatoes
  • Chickpeas
  • Bananas
  • Dark leafy greens

One of the main benefits of vitamin B6 is helping our body’s immune system better protect us. When using it with cannabis, it may enhance neuroprotective properties while promoting a healthy immune system.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is responsible for vision, reproductive health, blood, brain, and skin. Vitamin E is rich in antioxidants, which help protect our cells and prevent or delays damage to them. 

Free radicals are molecules produced when we break down food or when our bodies are exposed to things like tobacco smoke and radiation. 

Free radicals are often linked to major conditions like heart disease, cancer, and others.

Using this vitamin with weed may enhance the benefits of the antioxidants present in both Vitamin E and cannabis. Foods rich in Vitamin E are as follows:

  • Avocados
  • Dark Leafy Greens
  • Tomatoes
  • Almonds
  • Peanuts or Peanut Butter
  • Hazelnuts
