December 30th, 2022


Considering a dry January this New Year? If you’re anything like us, going California Sober to kick off the year is more your speed. But what exactly is California Sober?

We’re here with the ultimate guide to explain how it started, evolved and how it could help you start your new year off on the right foot.

What is California Sober?

California Sober is a term used to describe those who are cutting back on drugs and alcohol by replacing them with others that are less harmful. It’s a term that is uniquely Californian – here our summers never end, the sunsets are always beautiful, and the tranquil sounds of the ocean call out for a substance that allows you to take a deep breath in, marvel at your surroundings and simply enjoy the moment. This is why going California Sober means alcohol and other harmful substances are off the table but marijuana is perfectly acceptable.

This version of ‘sobriety’, using cannabis (and sometimes psychedelics) to avoid alcohol and/or other substances hit the mainstream in 2021, when songwriter, Demi Lovato, titled one of her songs ‘California Sober’. Since then, more and more people have adopted this form of sobriety and chosen cannabis over other substances to improve their lives.

If you’re thinking about getting sober or want to simply drink less alcohol, California sober might be a good place to start. Making the jump from someone who drinks regularly to not at all can be tough. Cannabis can be used to soften that blow and can be a helping hand so you can chase your 2023 goals with more ease.
