The canna-guide to "Dry January" 

LanternJanuary 20, 2022

Dry January is a great way to start out the new year on the right foot. But staying alcohol-free all month can be quite the challenge, especially if you're trying to break old habits in the process. Fortunately, weed is here to help you along the way! 

Multiple studies have shown that cannabis can help treat alcohol dependence. But you don't need a PhD to understand why weed is a healthier choice. In addition to being non-addictive, marijuana can also help you during those rough first few days without a drink. Choosing weed means you won't have to suffer through a hangover, so you'll be much kinder to your body.    

If you're planning for Dry January, plan to have some weed on hand. Here's just some of the ways you can say bye-bye to booze and use weed for a new you in the new year.

CBD to help stay sober

If staying completely sober is your goal, investing in CBD is a smart move. This cannabinoid is non-psychoactive, so you can remain clear-headed and grounded as it promotes calm, chill, and cheery vibes. Best of all, CBD comes in numerous forms, so accessing its powers can be as simple as snacking, taking a tincture, or having a quick hit of a vape

CBD can be taken at any time of day, but there are products that offer daytime uplift and energy. There are also aids for a good night's rest. This is especially valuable, since sleep deprivation can be one of the many side effects of quitting alcohol. 

Sip THC-infused beverages

Quitting alcohol doesn't mean you should quit everything that goes with it. THC-infused beverages allow you to still have social drinking but without the booze. 

The options are endless with infused drink additives. Just make sure you measure out the best dosage for you, as your body may react differently when it digests weed instead of smoking. In addition to holding them under your tongue, tinctures can be added to drinks and even food like smoothies, sauces, and soups. Just keep in mind that if it's alcohol-based, it may not blend well with certain ingredients. But half the fun of inventing your own canna-cocktail is discovering for yourself what works best!    

Encourage good habits with weed

Dry January, like any other New Year's resolution, is all about developing healthier habits. While it's easy to plan out your strategy, following through is another matter entirely. If you're worried that old habits die hard, have no fear! Weed can give you the leg up you need. 

Weed can be the motivation you need to get active and hit the gym instead of the bar. It can help you be more mindful, not just during yoga or meditation but also when you need to tone down anxiety. It can amp up your mood and energy when you're ready to go out and party with friends. Or it can replace the glass of wine or beer you use to relax and unwindease away aches, and get some rest after a long day.
