LUX’S GUIDE TO COPING THROUGH THE HOLIDAYS

It’s officially that time of year; the lights are up, caroler’s voices echo throughout festively decorated neighborhoods, eggnog and hot cocoa are on demand at every house party, and presents are plentiful. The holidays are officially upon us. We love spending time with our loved ones but who are we kidding? It’s a busy time of year. The days are shorter, the nights are colder, the lines are longer and the parking lots are always full. While the holidays are filled with plenty of joy, the season of Santa has also been known to deliver an occasional headache. We’ve reviewed some of the more common holiday ailments here and provided you with some of the many antidotes we have available at (Lux) Pot Shop, to soothe all your holiday maladies.

CBD & THC moxey mints say goodbye to travel woes

Holiday-Travel Fatigue

Holidays are often synonymous with travel and holiday travel is often wrought with overweight bags, endless traffic and a couple hundred renditions of “are we there yet?” If you’re moments away from a meltdown, take a moment and a deep breath – and pop and then immediately pop a refreshing mint guaranteed to restore your patience and spirit. Moxey’s Mints make the perfect travel companion too! They’ll help you say goodbye to that stale breath and bad mood. With just one, maybe two, mints you’ll quickly forget why holiday traveling irked you in the first place.

 

Craft Elixirs an extra kick in your coffee

Three-Hour Santa-Line Soul Numbness

Company-Party-You’d-Rather-Skip Syndrome

You’re not sure how it happens every winter, but here you are again.
