Cannabis has a number of different options that allows people to consume in their own way, for their own reasons.
Although some people choose to consume cannabis alone, often people consume cannabis with others for certain occasions. A "Connect" occasion can be any get together with others, at home or an outside event.
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.
