The holiday season is upon us once again. With this time a year, a lot of fun and festivities begin to pop up. We have Halloween with all its ghoulish treats followed up by Thanksgiving, where all you do is eat, eat, eat. After Turkey day is gone, it isn’t long before everyone starts offering you candies, cookies, cakes, and other sweet treats for the Christmas holiday season. To top it all off, there is one more massive meal at the end of the year. Some people have a hard time either with dealing with family or with all of the sweet treats’ temptations during the holiday season. Some even find that they turn to alcohol and cocktails over snacks to keep them from packing on the pounds or to dull the discomforts of massive family gatherings.
One of the downsides of holiday alcohol consumption is the arguments and many other conflicts resulting from consuming too much liquid courage. Many Thanksgiving dinners have become horrible events because a few family members had a few too many to drink and just can’t seem to get along. Parties and festivities are prevalent this time a year. From Halloween to Thanksgiving to Christmas, opportunities are abundant for you to consume alcohol. Suppose you’re hoping to remember a little bit more about this holiday season and possibly spend a little less time in the bathroom. In that case, you may want to consider an alternative for your ordinary cocktail, such as a cannabis cocktail.
Where Alcohol Fails, Cannabis Helps
Cannabis can help you do a lot of things over the holiday season. One of the things that it can help you do is stay clear from the sauce. When you go to a party, try and medicate with some properly dosed cannabis edibles beforehand. You will find that you have just as much of a buzz as those cocktails, but you will remain much clearer-headed. People who consume cannabis are not typically the ones you see having family brawls over sports teams and who gets to sit where. They’re not the ones that bring up hateful old memories that start fights over plights from the past.
Cannabis offers a plethora of consumption methods for consumers looking to choose something other than the sauce this holiday season. From edibles to tinctures, cannabis vapes, flower, and concentrates, you’re sure to find a way to get your herbal intake up enough to avoid alcohol at all. Some people have a problem slowing down or stopping once they start when it comes to consuming alcoholic beverages. This is an avenue where cannabis may help you exponentially. Many consumers find that when they smoke in conjunction with drinking, they tend to stop drinking much earlier than if they weren’t consuming cannabis at the same time.

Queue in CBD – Cannabis Without the High
It’s not always about catching a buzz, either. A healthy alternative to helping you choose another option over alcohol this holiday season that is still cannabis-related is CBD. This non-intoxicating cannabinoid may help you take the edge off of the stress of the holiday season. Also, if, like so many other people, you find yourself running around until your feet hurt and you are just plumb tired, CBD may be able to help alleviate some of the fatigue, pain, and anxiety that stems from this time of year. Just like THC products, you can find a plethora of CBD products. They have edibles, tinctures, topicals, oils, and even CBD-rich flower. Perhaps if you’re looking to kick cigarettes and stay away from booze, you may want to choose to try a little CBD as an alternative.
If it is particularly alcoholic beverages that you’re looking to avoid this holiday season and you need a little help, you’re in luck. Cannabis could be just the thing you need. They have many different cannabis-infused beverages that you could sip just like a cocktail and find yourself with a buzz. You have the option to choose from cannabis-infused herbal drinks that range all the way from sodas to tea and herbal shots. All of these have the potential to pack a buzz without the fuzz of alcohol.

The statistics behind alcohol abuse and alcoholism are frightening. They alone are enough to make you want to consider another alternative to alcoholic beverages this holiday season and all the year through.

People have been smoking joints for a long time. The first rolling papers surfaced around the early 1500s in Alcoy, Spain. These weren’t like the rolling papers we know today though.
