For many of us, the new year represents a clean slate for new goals. Getting fit, eating healthy, and observing Dry January are popular resolutions to kick off a happier, healthier new year. In other words, no slacking-off, no junk food, and no booze. No fun, right?


Replacing alcohol with CBD improves your sleep, energy, and mood, so you can enjoy even more fun activities with your family this year.

You still have most of the month left, so start NOW.

What is Dry January?

Dry January is a commitment to give up alcohol for the entire month after the many indulgences of December. What began as a 2013 public health campaign in the UK with 4,000 participants has grown to millions, worldwide, skipping alcohol for 31 days.

A whole month might sound like forever to forego your favorite beer, wine, or cocktail, but CBD delivers similar relaxing effects as alcohol without the negative health consequences and calories.

If you want to cleanse your body of toxic alcohol and boost your overall wellness, give it a try.

Here’s why:

Why Try Dry January?

Many moms drink alcohol at the end the day to cope with the stress of working, parenting, attending school and sports activities, managing meals, and carting kids—just some of the many ways moms are pulled in all directions, daily.

It’s true, unwinding with alcohol, in moderation, can take the edge off a stressful day. However, having more than one drink per day causes your body to build-up a tolerance to the alcohol’s calming effects, which leads to more drinks before bedtime, which leads to even higher anxiety and interrupts REM cycles, resulting in insomnia.

You need your sleep for the kiddos! And don’t forget all those calories you’re consuming!

Dry January is perfect for anyone who’s noticed an unhealthy pattern of daily drinking—maybe from motherhood, the holidays, or a pandemic?

Why is Cannabidiol Better for You than Alcohol?

CBD Doesn’t Give You a Hangover

An alcoholic buzz feels great in the moment. The more we drink, the better the buzz. Unfortunately, the better buzz usually means a bigger hangover in the morning. Suddenly, all those good feelings have turned crappy fast.

CBD doesn’t give you a hangover. The more cannabidiol you take, the more relaxed you feel. You can’t overdose on it plus CBD relieves hangover symptoms like headache, nausea, body aches, and anxiety from increased blood alcohol levels.

CBD is an Anti-Inflammatory

Like your beloved glass of red wine, CBD oil contains powerful antioxidants and helps you chill out, but without the negative health consequences. Cannabidiol is an anti-inflammatory, whereas alcohol causes inflammation, which can lead to a slew of serious health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and arthritis.

CBD Reduces Social Anxiety

People often turn to alcohol at holiday parties to reduce social anxiety. Mingling with strangers and trying to sound fun and interesting in a crowd can be super-stressful and cause overindulging. Too much alcohol can quickly turn interesting into embarrassing.

Good news! CBD oil reduces social anxiety, but you can’t overindulge because you can’t overdose on cannabidiol. CBD delivers powerful relaxation without the potential health risks and calories.

CBD Helps with Weight Loss

Alcohol is notoriously high in empty calories with no nutritional value. Alcohol also impacts blood sugar levels, causing our bodies to crave more calories and gain more weight.

CBD controls blood sugar levels and balances the hormones responsible for hunger signals. Simply put, cannabidiol prevents the blood sugar spikes that make us crave more sweet and salty junk food with empty calories.


CBD provides the same relaxation as alcohol without the negative side-effects.
