The beginning of the year is an ideal time to hit the pause button and focus on personal wellness. As part of your fitness regimen, finding a healthy routine not only stimulates your endorphins but it can also help recenter your mind, body, and spirit.
During physical activities, the connection between the mind and body is powerful. If you are not focused, your body will not perform to its best ability. Practicing meditation and yoga is a fantastic way to connect with yourself, especially with the addition of cannabis.
For centuries, cannabis and yoga have been closely intertwined. It is believed that Shiva, one of the great deities of Hinduism and praised God of Yoga, ingested cannabis-infused products during his yoga practice to conjure inner powers. If you’ve combined the two yourself, you might have experienced a similar sense of empowerment and enlightenment, which comes from relaxing all physical tension and soothing mental and emotional distress.
Ganja Yoga Founder, Dee Dussault, has mastered this experience. She believes that both cannabis and yoga take us out of the chatter and grind of daily life, into an elevated space that's less rough around the edges. When combined, the soothing and healing effects of both are even greater, pushing our minds and bodies to a heightened level of consciousness.
So how does one become a cannabis yogi guru? The first step is finding the right product. For yoga, vaporizers are a great choice. In Dee Dussault’s Ganja Yoga classes, she likes to incorporate vaporizers so her students can experience the taste of terpenes. She also believes that smoke evokes something ancient, much like a yoga practice. Vaporizers are also portable and easy to use as you bend and flow.
What’s Dee’s favorite yoga position to try while vaping? Nearly any pose, truthfully. What's one of her favorite vaporizer brands? Kurvana.

To best tap into your inner zen, Kurvana offers an impeccable selection of full-spectrum products. If you are looking for a high-quality vaporizer experience, Kurvana’s unique extraction process preserves the full cannabinoid and terpene contents of the raw cannabis plant, delivering the greatest amount of therapeutic benefits to your body without compromise.
Kurvana currently offers three full-spectrum vaporizer lines that include ASCND, KPEN Originals, and KPEN Infusions containing a broad spectrum of healing benefits. Each line is dedicated to a particular type of consumer ranging from the beginner to the refined cannabis pro. The company will also be releasing a new line of 100% CBD vaporizers coming to California retail stores this spring.
What are the best selections for yoga? The team from Kurvana recommends ASCND Pink Sherbert, KPEN Originals Blue Dream, and KPEN Infusions Banana Smoothie.
ASCND Pink Sherbert
Kurvana’s ASCND line is made for experienced cannabis users that prefer the highest levels of potency on the market. The oil that is used promotes maximum cannabinoid uptake for powerful healing results. For yoga, look for ASCND Pink Sherbert. This uplifting hybrid bursts with aromas and flavors of pink grapefruit, strawberry, and a hint of spice with mood-enhancing side effects. Due to the rich terpene profile consisting of limonene and beta-caryophyllene, this vaporizer is a perfect option for enhancing your next high-energy vinyasa flow.
KPEN Originals Blue Dream
Kurvana’s KPEN Originals line is dedicated to maintaining a “true to strain” taste and feel of natural flower by primarily focusing on terpenes. An all-time favorite is the KPEN Originals Blue Dream. In California, Blue Dream has always been a popular choice due to its unique origins, a cross of Haze and Blueberry. Kurvana’s KPEN Originals Blue Dream not only offers a delicious taste but it’s extremely well-rounded, it’s long-lasting, and it promotes mind and body relief due to high levels of myrcene and energizing limonene. If you love a deeper yoga practice that promotes stress relief and relaxation, try combining KPEN Originals Blue Dream with hatha yoga.
KPEN Infusions Banana Smoothie
Kurvana’s KPEN Infusions line is a great match for those that prefer a more balanced experience with cannabis. Perfect for including in your morning meditation, KPEN Infusions Banana Smoothie will calm your mind and help your body find homeostasis before embarking on a busy day due to its equal levels of CBD and THC (1:1). This soothing vaporizer will keep you centered and focused, plus who doesn’t love the taste of a fresh smoothie in the morning? Try pairing this vaporizer with a calming practice of yin yoga.
