Anyone who indulges in the occasional cannabis product has likely been there at least once: you accidentally take too much, or perhaps come across a strain that’s stronger than you expected it to be, and you wind up uncomfortably high. Nothing’s worse than an unexpected bout of paranoia — or a high that lasts hours longer than you were hoping it to — when you were counting on some chill vibes.

That’s why more and more people — especially cannabis novices — are turning to CBD and CBG products to forego the high altogether. Gossamer is the latest brand to launch a product aimed at relaxing you without getting you completely zonked. Their new Happy Hour hemp pre-rolls come in a smartly designed package of seven, and each joint contains 0.3 grams of CBG White, a hemp flower bred for its elevated levels of cannabigerol (CBG), a cannabinoid believed to have anti-inflammatory properties and “cognitive-enhancing potential,” according to the Wall Street Journal. If you happen to suffer from inflammatory bowel disease like Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, CBG has been proven to help alleviate your symptoms. And if you don’t, you can simply use it to help take the edge off after a long day at work.

Happy Hour is “designed to give you the leisurely smoking experience you crave — minus the mind-melting high,” according to Gossamer. “With floral notes of camomile, vanilla and peppercorn, Happy Hour pre-rolls offer an uplifting, body-relaxing buzz, a burst of creativity and a cloud of calm.”

Each 0.3 gram joint contains 62 mg of cannabinoids, and a pack of seven will set you back $35. Gossamer donates 2% of all product sales to organizations fighting to undo the harm caused by the war on the drugs. You can find out more or purchase some here.
