THC, short for tetrahydrocannabinol, is probably the most well-known chemical compound found in cannabis. It’s the psychoactive (meaning it affects the mind) compound that creates a euphoric feeling, helps ease pain, and encourages calm and tranquillity – in short, it gets you high and is great for socialization, inspiration, and relaxation.
Cannabinol, better known as CBD, is a non-psychoactive compound also found in cannabis. It has many therapeutic benefits like helping to reduce inflammation and anxiety. The skinny here is that it won’t get you high, but it’s excellent for pain management and can produce profoundly relaxing effects – kind of like lying on the couch, under a weighted blanket, after having just got a massage.
For some, it’s realizing that their mind and body doesn’t react to alcohol the same way that it used to. For others, it’s being more mindful about the way they treat their body and spirit. Whether you’re looking to part ways with that weekend cocktail, or simply want to expand what wellness means to you, being Cali Sober might be the way to go.
California Sober refers to someone who enjoys cannabis for both its medicinal and recreational benefits but abstains from all other substances. Why just cannabis? Besides the ability to help with anxiety, manage pain, and help with sleep issues, for many, it’s a great way to promote creativity or socially engage (and doesn’t come with a hangover the next morning). When hanging in social situations or trying to unwind after a long day, do you skip the bottle of wine and reach for a joint, vape, or other forms of cannabis? Then you might be Cali Sober.
