Cannabis consumption for serious gamers has its benefits
In order for a gamer to excel in video games, it is paramount to have the focus and optimization needed to do so. This is why choosing the right strain of marijuana to consume during the game is a crucial part of completing the remaining piece of the puzzle.
The eSports universe has a strong belief that cannabis is a performance-enhancing drug. While there is not enough scientific proof to say that cannabis has a positive impact on gaming performance, there are organizations that want to prove otherwise. Such is the case of Stoned Gamer League and Snoop Dogg’s Gangsta Gaming League, which were created to show their congruent support for marijuana.
There are different strains that were suggested by experts and players with a professional level. Brian “Skatch” Snyder is the Communications Director and de facto cannabis expert at StackUp.org and faithfully believes that the combination of cannabis and gaming is a mental thing. He said, “When you sit down to game, you mostly have two goals in mind: having fun and relaxing.” To that end, he recommends Cereal Milk because “it has a nice blend of joyful euphoria and relaxation qualities without giving you couch-lock.” The effects of Cereal Milk’s dominant terpenes, caryophyllene, and limonene, definitely give it a head start.
OG Kush is another very good option, and Patrick Haske, Marketing Director of Clear Cannabis Inc, has the necessary knowledge to know how terpenes affect his clients. Nowadays, he prefers to enjoy relaxing RPGs like Assassin’s Creed and Cyberpunk 2077. For Haske, he finds a suitable combination with OG Kush.
There is also Lime Sorbet. According to Haske, he will switch to this one when he prefers to play games that involve more action.
