Whether you’re testing out a new recreational strain, or seeking out a solution for your health needs, exploring cannabis is a huge deal. Keeping a cannabis journal is one way to manage this process in a manner that allows you to find the right products. At Origins, we highly recommend that you use the journal feature on our app to record your experiences, allowing our recommendation engine to provide feedback.

Keeping a handwritten journal is proven to reduce stress. It can be used as a stress-management tool and a good-for-you habit to decrease the impact of stressors in your life. Journaling keeps your memory sharp by boosting comprehension and working memory capacity. In addition, journaling improves your overall emotional well-being and happiness. Recording your thoughts decreases the time spent on trying out different strains and product which in return saves money. Keeping a cannabis journal will help you discover what you like and don’t like, alleviating the stress of the unknown.

Journaling your cannabis experiences is beneficial when trying out new products. Recording your journey allows you to look back at what effects each product had on you, both mentally and physically. On our app, you are able to keep your thoughts organized under each previously purchased product. This is linked through your phone number based on what you purchase in our stores. The cannabis journal feature provides the opportunity for you to keep track of your favorite and least favorite strains or products. It simplifies the task of navigating the cannabis world.

While on your cannabis journey, having the mobile app readily available on your phone means that you can record on the go. Rate your physical and mental experiences such as the characteristics of pain you are hoping to alleviate (burning, aching, sharp, dull) or how you’re feeling (happy, sad, anxious, calm, angry, or depressed) before, during, and after consumption. Recording all thoughts and reactions during consumption is key to making the most out of your cannabis journal.
