Most likely you are, as most people are at some level and don’t even know it! From daily stress to our increased consumption of sugar, most people aren’t getting enough magnesium in their daily diet. And why are we, the cannabis community, concerned about this? Well not only does magnesium deficiency have several side effects that can affect quality of life, but using marijuana tends to deplete the body’s level of magnesium even more, making you feel more on-edge after coming down from the high.
What are the side effects of deficiency anyway:
- High blood pressure (Hypertension)
- Behavioral disturbances
- Impaired memory/thinking
- Sleep disturbances
- Muscular pain
- Brain fog
- Anxiety disorders such as OCD
Of course, that doesn’t mean that enjoying marijuana isn’t safe in moderation. So how do you feel your best while enjoying cannabis? Here are some tips for keeping your magnesium levels up:
- Eat magnesium rich foods
- Sunflower or Pumpkin Seeds
- Brown rice
- Take a magnesium supplement like a powered drink or ionic magnesium drops.
- Apply magnesium oil to your skin
- Take an epsom salt bath
