Let’s face it, the past few weeks have been a whirlwind for all of us amidst the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and pandemic. Between anxiety inducing updates on the news everyday and the continued uncertainty surrounding the virus and its spread, we could all use some help making our extended quarantine and chill time as relaxing as possible.

The product assortment at The Artist Tree is second to none. We work tirelessly to ensure we have the best products at the most competitive prices in the state. Whether you are a new shopper or a seasoned veteran, we have something for everyone. Now that we all have a little extra time on our hands, we’ve put together our top five product picks to maximize quarantine time.

Canndescent Create (Flower / Preroll)

Whether you roll it up yourself or choose the always convenient preroll option, it’s hard to go wrong with Create from Canndescent. One of the best ways to pass this time at home over the next few weeks is to take on creative projects that keep your mind sharp. If you write, paint, sing, code or simply want to get your mind in an innovative state – we recommend Create for it’s clean and consistent head high that will make you your best creative self.

dosist sleep

Spending weeks at a time at home is unusual for all of us. Time seems to blend together and there is one area of our lives where we tend to lose consistency – sleep. Whenever customers come to us with sleep issues, we point them in one direction for quality, consistency, and successful results. The sleep pen from dosist is an award winning, dose controlled device that provides an 8:1 THC-to-CBD ratio designed to help you fall asleep and stay asleep naturally.

Kiva Chocolate Bars   

If you’ve been on the fence about trying edibles, now is the perfect time to dip your toes in the water with The Artist Tree’s extensive range of incredible edible products. Some of our absolute favorite edibles are Kiva Bars for their incredible flavors (our top picks are Churro Milk Chocolate and Blackberry Dark Chocolate) and the even more amazing feelings they invoke.

With 20 pieces per bar and 5mg per individual piece, consumers can start slow and find the perfect amount to give them the amazing and relaxing body high that edibles provide. For new users, we recommend starting with one 5mg piece and waiting at least 45 minutes to an hour before taking another. Once you’ve found that happy bliss, lay back on the couch with your favorite snack, order up that movie you never got a chance to see in theaters, relax and enjoy!

Omura Device

Now is a better time than any to try something new. One of the most exciting new technologies we’ve seen in the last few years is Omura’s “heat-not-burn” device. The unique device allows users to cleanly consume flower without smoke via pre-filled, dosed, flower sticks.

Gone are the days of the mess of grinding and rolling up your own flower. Just pop a stick into the device and you are ready to go. We really like Omura for new cannabis consumers in particular, as it provides a really mellow high that is more focused on flavor and overall experience than completely putting you over the top.

For experienced consumers, who might otherwise pass over this option, we would highly recommend taking a look at what Omura has to offer. Not only do you get one of the cleanest methods to consume, but the flavor that this device provides is far superior to the experience of smoking flower traditionally.

The Omura device gives a 3 minutes long session that provides by far the best full terpene taste profile on the market with no burning or lingering odor, which could be highly valuable if you’re locked down in close quarters with your family (yikes!). Try this new device with our favorite Champagne Skies from Cream Of The Crop for a nice citrus-y flavored, anxiety-free high.

Papa & Barkley Releaf Balm (1:3 THC Rich)

What can be said about the Releaf Balm from Papa & Barkley other than this, it works magic! As we are in increasingly stressful times, you might be experiencing pesky tension in your neck or back. Or maybe you’ve decided to finally pursue your dreams of running a marathon and your knees are aching as a result.

Well, we’ve got the remedy. Simply take a nice nickel-sized dollop of the Releaf Balm and massage it into the affected area, making sure it absorbs completely.

We love this balm for its smooth, soothing scent and activated warmth followed by a nice calming cooling sensation. Another pro-tip we’ve found from our extensive product research – if you suffer from chronic headaches or migraines, take a small amount between your two index fingers and rub the balm slowly into your temples for amazing results. 

Here at The Artist Tree, we know stressful and uncertain times can be unsettling. We are here and committed to our community and the safety of those in it. We have taken significant measures to ensure our stores are cleaned frequently throughout the day and our employees are instructed on best practices to assist customers from a safe social distance. We also now provide delivery for customers that would prefer to not to leave their homes, with the same stringent cleanliness procedures to ensure your safety and convenience.
