So COVID-19 has hit Spokane and we’re feeling the need to stock up on supplies and stay home to help prevent the spread of the virus. What we know about the virus so far is that it is spread by intaking the germs from someone who may be infected. This could happen by accidentally breathing in the tiny droplets that are airborne for a few seconds after someone coughs/sneezes.The virus can also be spread by coming in contact with a dirty surface and then touching your mouth, nose or eyes. The best things to do to protect yourself during this time is to stay clean and socially distance yourself as best as you can.
How To Stay Safe During COVID-19
What can we do as stoners to make sure we stay as safe as possible?
- Don’t share joints. Passing a joint from mouth to mouth is not the best idea right now and sicknesses can be spread most easily by sharing germs. If smoking out of a bong or dab rig, keep lysol wipes or alcohol pads on hand so you can wipe down the piece after each use.
- Bongs/preroll condoms can be a good idea too! You can find silicone mouthpieces that can be attached to prerolls and/or bongs/dab rigs so that you can share a smoke without swapping spit.
- While CBD has many medical benefits, there is nothing to prove that it will do anything to protect you again COVID-19. Keep smoking and taking CBD if it makes you feel good but please do not use it as a replacement to drug store or prescription medicines if you need it.
- Smoking weed can exacerbate a cough so if you’re not feeling well, this might be a good time to try out a mini tolerance break and take a break from smoking too tough.
