Almost everyone has had COVID at this point – including stoners. Whether it was in the first few months of lockdown, further down the road, or once any of the other COVID strains (see what we did there?) were discovered, you’ve probably been through the ups and downs of COVID.

- It’s best to stop smoking cannabis if you have COVID.
Cannabis and COVID
At the beginning of the pandemic, it was difficult to come to terms with the “new normal,” especially regarding weed.
We said goodbye to midnight sessions with friends at the beach, abandoned walking into dispensaries, and many cannabis enthusiasts also turned to other ways of consuming cannabis that would help preserve lung health in uncertain times.
Between edibles, tinctures, oils, vapes, and beverages, areas of the weed industry also flourished throughout the changes, although it wasn’t easy.
Ordering weed to your doorstep became the new dispensary, and virtual sessions over video calls became the new way to enjoy cannabis with friends during quarantine.
COVID is far from being over, but the world is coming to terms with it and has been opening back up, little by little. Still, it’s important to stay vigilant, hygienic, and safe, and most of all, remember that this disease is still affecting many people.
Can Cannabis Prevent COVID?
No. Easy answer.
Cannabis has not been proven to prevent COVID.
Although studies are still undergoing and emerging to understand exactly what the relation between cannabis and COVID is, there’s no conclusive, long-term proof of weed being used to prevent or cure the disease.
Benefits of Cannabis Edibles
There are many benefits of cannabis edibles, from their potency to the fact that they are healthier for your lungs than lighting up a joint. Plus, there are so many dosages and cannabinoids to pick from nowadays, so you don’t have to feel like you have to get high as a kite and go into anxiety mode due to homemade, difficult-to-dose edibles.
Here are some of the benefits of edibles:
- They’re easier on your lungs compared to smoking weed.
- They’re easier to use and more discreet smell-wise.
- The effects are more potent and can last much longer.
- Buying ready-made edibles give you the exact dosage so you don’t go overboard.
Can I Take an Edible If I Have COVID?
Smoking weed while having COVID is a big no-no. It is a respiratory disease, so you’ll want to say goodbye to joints and doobies until you’re back to your healthy self. After all, your health is more important than anything else.
If you’re used to smoking, switching up routines can be hard. Still, it’s best to lay off smoking if you have COVID.
Not all is bad news, though. If you have COVID, it’s not the worst idea to take edibles. While it won’t cure you or prevent you from getting an illness, it could help alleviate symptoms that we already know weed can help with.
Still, we highly encourage and suggest you talk to a medical professional before embarking on an edible trip while you have COVID. Every person is different, and we aren’t about to give you any medical advice.
Cannabis and Long COVID
So many people around the world are suffering the consequences of long COVID, and our thoughts and best wishes go out to them.
Currently, there are no verified treatments for those dealing with long COVID, although there are things that might help people suffering from it deal with the symptoms and consequences.
Among those things, some people have talked about how cannabis has helped them in their personal journey dealing with long COVID.
Although we can’t say it’s a surefire way of dealing with long COVID, it’s worth a shot to talk to your doctor about it if you’re experiencing symptoms that might be alleviated with cannabis or other treatments.
About 10-30% of people who became infected with COVID are currently fighting against long COVID, which can have symptoms including constant fatigue, muscle weakness, fever, cognitive dysfunction, and shortness of breath.
While there are currently no approved treatments for long-haulers of COVID, you can always talk to your trusted medical professional to see whether cannabis is an option for you to help you deal with the symptoms of long COVID.
Where To Get Edibles
At Delta Munchies, we pride ourselves on creating some of the highest quality and most trustworthy edible products on the market.
While we ask you to talk to your medical professional before consuming any edibles having COVID or dealing with long COVID, if you get the go-ahead from them, we have you covered.
Let’s start off strong with one of our favorite products: our Melon Dreams HHC Gummies. With notes of green melon and sugary apple, along with psychoactive effects that come on strong but don’t hit you like a train as THC does, these are a great option. HHC is about 70-80% as strong as regular THC, so you’ll definitely feel it, but it won’t get hit with a train of psychoactivity.
If you’re interested in trying HHC but green isn’t doing it for you, we also have Blue Razz HHC Gummies, which give you a flavorful cross between blueberries and raspberries that mush together to create pure berry goodness, along with enjoyable effects.
If you’re looking for something milder than HHC but stronger than THC, let us introduce you to our delta 8 THC products. For those looking for a mild high, our Grape Gushers Delta 8 Gummies, give you a mild psychoactive experience without sacrificing a clear head.
For the real go-getters out there, we have our Holy Ropes Delta 9 Gummies that boast a humongous 1250mg of delta 9 THC. If you’re new to the delta 9 or the cannabis game in general, these aren’t for you. Even for seasoned users, we recommend taking just a bite and waiting for the effects to set in before trying more.
For the classic THC lovers, we’ve got your back, too. Our Strawberry Shortcake Delta 9 Gummies have 10mg of THC per gummy, a perfect amount to drift off into an unforgettable trip. Special mention: the flavor is amazing, if we do say so ourselves.
