Comedienne Chelsea Handler has spoken up about the perks of therapy, meditation and weed, and how these three things have helped her cut down on her drinking and to stay more calm and present. “Now you can microdose. Microdosing is taking minimal amounts so you’re not overdosing on that THC feeling. Everybody’s coming out with different versions to treat people.
