Dry January: How CBD Can Help You Stay Sober
Could CBD be your secret weapon for staying alcohol-free in 2023?
The holidays can be a boozy blur of celebratory bevvies and festive cheer. But an almost month-long drinking binge can result in a hangover of whole-body proportions. Could CBD help you to stay sober in Dry January 2023?
Whether it's bubbly at the Christmas party or rum and coke on New Years Eve, the holiday season is often synonymous with alcohol and indulgence. One 2019 survey suggests that in the UK, almost two-thirds of drinkers consume more than usual throughout the month of December, and one in five experiences an excess of horrible hangovers.
Dry January — which also happens to be ‘Love your Liver’ month — is an opportunity to shake off the holiday haze and give your body and brain a break from booze. It can also be a time to change other health-damaging habits, such as smoking tobacco or spending too much time on your phone. Here's a few ways CBD could help:
CBD for when you're anxious:
CBD Oil is the product most commonly used for anxiety. By dropping the oil under your tongue, the CBD is absorbed quickly into the bloodstream and effective within 30 minutes. Full-spectrum CBD Oil is most helpful type.
CBD Capsules are a convenient, pre-dosed method. In a 2019 study on CBD, researchers gave participants 25mg, 50mg or 75mg capsules a day to test its effects on a psychiatric clinical population. They found that anxiety decreased within the first month for 79% of its participants and then remained low for the duration of the study.
CBD for when you're craving:
CBD Vapes are a popular method for combatting cravings. Favoured for quick absorption and an almost immediate hit of calm. The best ones are made from full spectrum hemp distillate with no nicotine and no added chemicals.
CBD Hemp Shake can be smoked to give a feeling of calm without tobacco or herb. Trying to cut back but not sure how to start? CBD Hemp Shake helps you to relax without nicotine or drowsiness.
CBD for when you need a treat:
CBD chocolate for a naturally relaxing treat.
As reviewed by the Guardian "I tested it at the end of a day so stressful I had appealed on Twitter for vodka shots and a chain saw. I received neither so decided to give this CBD chocolate a go. I had one piece – sublime – and, reader, everything was very OK."
CBD Gummies for a sweet treat on the go. One-a-day vegan gummies infused with your daily dose of CBD, the most delicious way to take CBD.
