The neurotransmitter serotonin is known as the “feel good” chemical. It plays an important role in regulating mood, memory, sleep, arousal, and mental wellness. Inspired by its namesake, this playlist is a mix of feel good tunes, meditations, and spoken-word to encourage a serene, happy mindset.
This month we’re doing a cannabinoid cleanse among many Barbari team and community members. Over the course of September we’re giving our bodies a chance to reset and release the tolerance that has built up over months (or years) of cannabinoid use for various self-care and recreational activities. This month is about self reflection and mindfulness. In those moments that we would normally turn to a joint for a little mid-afternoon inspiration or pop an edible in preparation for a meditation session, we’re finding alternative ways to elicit mental and physical balance.
