Try going “California Sober” this Dry January

As the world’s 5th largest economy, California provides the global market with everything from produce to technology to entertainment. In recent years, one of the more curious exports to come from the Golden State is its unique approach to teetotaling. A reference to the state’s general permissiveness toward cannabis, “Cali sober” (or “California sober” if you’re not into the whole brevity thing) refers to a form of drug and alcohol abstinence that carves out a lone mood-altering substance exception for weed. While the term has been floating around the west coast vernacular for a number of years, a personal essay from VICE writer Michelle Lhooq and trend explainer in The Cut helped expose the concept to the masses in 2019.

Given the few health drawbacks of cannabis, relative to alcohol, this lifestyle seems perfectly matched with another sobriety trend that’s gained traction in recent years: “Dry January.”

Whether giving their bodies a chance to recover from the boozy excesses of the holiday season, getting a jump on New Year’s resolution health goals, or simply needing a break on their intake, many are opting to start their new year with 31 drinking-free days.

If you’re looking to start your 2020 with a dry month, we recommend the Cali Sober approach to help you stay the course. Yes, all the products Eaze delivers fall within the parameters of this practice, but we have a few suggestions for products that seem best suited to aid the transition.

Want to sip something stronger than seltzer in a party setting? Cann’s cannabis-infused “social tonics” are here to help.

Looking for more of a solo decompression? Atlas’ full-spectrum drink mixes will get the job done.

Feeling anxious? Ritual Daytime Drops are what you need to make you feel at peace.

Who knows? With Cali sobriety such a cakewalk, your dry January might last longer than you originally expected.
