These Discreet Vapes And Edibles Crush Anxiety

Everyday stressors should be stressed.

There’s no reason everyday anxiety should put you in a funk when weed is more than willing to lift you up and out of it. Ironically, the places that cause many of us to be anxious are often the same places that frown upon cannabis consumption. (We’re looking at you, DMV.) That’s why we’ve compiled the best stress-relieving vapes and edibles into one handy guide because as far as consumption methods go, vapes and edibles are by far the most discreet. After all, weedy mints never tipped anyone off and vape breaks are the new smoke breaks.

You’ll probably notice most of the products on this list contain some combination of THC and CBD, two popular cannabinoids that work together to calm both your body and mind. Taking them in isolation can provide some soothing effects, but they work wonders when combined. This is the case because CBD effectively rounds out the psychoactive effects of THC (so you don’t get paranoid), while THC enhances the physically soothing properties of CBD (so you can actually feel it working). Put simply, it's a match made in cannabinoid heaven.

Leave it to the Proper Cannabis Committee to vape and eat their way through mild annoyances to find the best anxiety-crushing highs for you. These products aren’t about to cure any serious medical conditions—we’re weed experts, not doctors—but they can pull a proverbial thorn out of your side. 



The Vapes


Despite having a name fitting for a monster truck, Jetty Extracts' Cannatonic PAX Era Pod is as relaxing as they come. Raters were impressed by how much it took the edge off without producing a noticeable psychoactive high. Personally, I didn't think a vape could help with stress headaches until I tried this pod for myself. This is one to keep in your purse and/or man satchel at all times. 

Available in California only.

Heylo's Dutch Treat PAX Era Pod delivers a complex high that begins with a boost of energy before settling into a calm, focused state. As one rater put it, "I really enjoyed the initial upbeat energy of this. Eventually, it took a hybrid turn and now I just feel calm and relaxed." Reach for this pod when you have a pile of work to get through and not much desire to do it. 

Available in Washington only. 

Dosist's Calm pen vibrates when you've consumed one low dose so there's no fear of overdoing it here. This all-in-one pen could leave you feeling instantly at ease with a side of calm clarity, but depending on your tolerance, it could leave you feeling nothing at all. Ultimately, this pen is ideal for the ultra-sensitive and that's why I'm including it on this list. 

Available in California only.

Between its tropical mocktail flavor and marshmallow body high, Orchid Essential's Tropical Trainwreck vape more than earned its high score. The head high can have a creative side that lends itself well to a laid-back yet productive afternoon. Sip on this pen when you’re physically at the laundromat but would like to be in the Bahamas mentally. 

Available in California and Oregon.

Mary's Medicinals' 3:1 CBD:THC Vape Pen has a calming head high and soothing body high. For some, this vape provided enough energetic motivation to get them through a tedious project. Others found it to be ideal for laid-back yet productive afternoons. Puff on this whenever you feel a deadline-induced panic approaching. 

Available in Colorado only.

Sometimes a balanced sativa is exactly what you need to turn around a bummer of a day, and Jetty Extracts' Maui Wowie PAX Era Pod does just that. Between an overwhelmingly positive head high and a relaxing body buzz, raters recommend this product for situations that require calm collectedness. High-stress workdays, crowded parties, and long to-do lists are no match for Jetty’s Maui Wowie. This pod is not likely to leave you feeling drowsy when the high tapers off, making it a great daytime option. 

Available in California only.

A mellow buzz and happy-pill vibes are what landed Ascend's Bliss Cartridge a high score. Raters loved this cartridge for its ability to calm and motivate at the same time, helping them power through chores and rush-hour traffic. As one rater noted, “Great for dealing with road rage!” Its exceptional herbal, earthy flavor doesn’t hurt either.

Available in Colorado only.



The Edibles


Kiva's Sparkling Pear Camino Gummies are perfect for those days when all you need is a little nudge to get centered. With a relaxing balance of 2mg THC and 6mg CBD, these gummies aren’t activating your mind so much as clearing out the cobwebs. Reach for these the next time you need to let go of a hectic day or get through a family reunion. 

Available in California only.

Papa & Barkley's 30:1 CBD:THC Releaf Tincture may taste like dead grass, but it scored well simply because it is so damn soothing. Raters report this tincture works double time to ease tension in the mind and body before trailing off with a bit of sleepiness. This might not be your best bet for tackling a big project, but it’ll certainly help you quiet your mind before easing into sleep.

Available in California only.

Tasty, balanced, and calming, Satori's Wild Strawberries in Milk Chocolate rightly earned the undying affection of rater Brianna Wheeler. As she wrote in her review, “The head high was bold and bright, plunging me into a technicolor version of an already vibrant afternoon.” The high can veer toward the spacey side, but if you're willing to lean into it, it can help you unlock a certain stony focus.

Available in California only.

Bursting with cinnamon flavor, Breez's Cinnamon CBD 1:1 Mints offer a balanced high that comes on gently. With 5mg of both THC and CBD, low-dose users can expect a velvety body buzz and mental massage from just one mint. They’re perfect for wrapping up a long day or smoothing out the edges of a rough menstrual cycle. 

Available in California only.

One packet of Stillwater's Ripple Balanced 5 contains 5mg of both THC and CBD—just enough to leave you feeling calm yet energized. Raters gave this flavorless powder a high score because you can add it to just about anything for a boost of relief. One rater even said, “Starting my day with Ripple in a cup of coffee is arguably the best thing ever.” Stir some into your morning latte the next time you wake up on the wrong side of the bed. 

Available in Colorado only.

With 1mg of THC and 5mg of CBD each, Mr. Moxey's CBD Ginger Mints are ultra-soothing and ideal for dosing throughout the day. According to the Committee, you can expect a very subtle boost of mental clarity with an added dose of productivity depending on the setting. The fact they were able to ease stomach cramps also contributed to their high score. 

Available in Oregon and Washington.
