Cannabis has a number of different options that allows people to consume in their own way, for their own reasons.
Although many consume cannabis alone, often people get together with friends for different occasions. It could be a get together over dinner or a concert with a group. It could even be video chatting with your friends from the comfort of your own home.
Consider trying a Sativa or Hybrid strain. Sativa strains are more likely to have effects that are invigorating and uplifting. Hybrid strains on the other hand inherit traits from both Indica and Sativa strains, where each component can add something different to the overall experience.
