Important Information About Cannabis and Coronavirus


The COVID-19 pandemic has raised concerns about the use and purchase of cannabis. We want to assure you that all Have a Heart locations prioritize your safety and have implemented strict sanitization and mitigation practices. You can read more about our safety measures here. While we provide a safe environment for purchasing cannabis, here are some precautions to keep in mind:

Be cautious when combining tobacco and cannabis

Combining tobacco with cannabis in a spliff is popular, but the nicotine in tobacco increases the risk of respiratory distress. Given that COVID-19 affects the respiratory system, it is advisable to take a break from tobacco for now.

Avoid sharing joints and shotgunning

COVID-19 can be spread through contaminated surfaces and airborne germs. It’s important to minimize the risk of transmission by refraining from sharing joints, blunts, bowls, or bongs. This includes shotgunning and blowing smoke from one person to another. If you prefer smoking joints, it’s advisable to buy extras or pre-rolls for individual consumption.

Frequently clean bongs and bowls

Just like sanitizing frequently touched surfaces, it is important to regularly clean your smoking accessories to reduce the risk of contamination. The Coronavirus can survive on glass for up to 3 days, but using isopropyl alcohol and salt can effectively disinfect your bongs and bowls.

Consider switching to edibles if you are at high risk

If you are over 60, have a chronic illness, or are immunocompromised, it might be a good idea to try edibles instead of smoking. We offer a wide range of edibles, including tinctures, cookies, caramels, drinks, mints, gummies, and even ramen seasoning. Keep in mind that edibles take longer to take effect (45 – 90 minutes), so start with a low dosage and gradually increase.

Stock up on vapes

Due to disruptions in supply chains from China, where most vape batteries and cartridges are manufactured, there may be shortages in the foreseeable future. If you enjoy vaping, consider purchasing extra cartridges until the supply lines normalize.
