Wellness, Relaxation, and a Hangover-Free Lifestyle

Wellness, Relaxation, and a Hangover-Free Lifestyle

Jenna Goldring

In recent years, we've witnessed a notable cultural shift, particularly among women, in their consumption habits.


An increasing number of women opting for cannabis over alcohol, driven by a multitude of factors, from the allure of health and wellness benefits to the evolving societal perspectives. This surge represents a growing movement of women embracing cannabis while bidding farewell to alcohol, drawn by the promise of a hangover-free lifestyle and the therapeutic potential it offers for addressing anxiety, stress, and sleep issues.


Traditionally, alcohol has been the preferred recreational substance for many, offering relaxation and social lubrication. However, as societal attitudes toward cannabis evolve and its legalization gains momentum, an increasing number of women are turning to this alternative. According to a survey conducted by New Frontier Data, 48% of female cannabis consumers reported reducing their alcohol consumption, with 40% substituting it entirely with cannabis (New Frontier Data, 2023).

As a female founder in the cannabis industry, I've witnessed a remarkable trend unfolding before my eyes: more and more women are opting out of traditional alcohol consumption and turning to cannabis-infused edibles or tinctures as their preferred method of relaxation and socializing.


It's truly inspiring to see women making this shift because they want to enjoy themselves without the burdensome aftermath of a hangover. The decision to choose cannabis over alcohol reflects a growing awareness of the importance of self-care and well-being among women. It's empowering to witness women taking control of their choices and embracing cannabis use.


One of the primary drivers behind women's transition from alcohol to cannabis is their heightened health consciousness. Alcohol consumption is associated with numerous adverse health effects, including liver damage, increased risk of cancer, and mental health issues. In contrast, cannabis is often perceived as a safer alternative, particularly when consumed responsibly. A study published in the American Journal of Public Health found that states with medical cannabis laws had a 15% reduction in alcohol sales (Ghosh et al., 2017).


The absence of hangovers associated with cannabis consumption is particularly appealing to women. Hangovers not only cause physical discomfort but also impact productivity and overall well-being.

Another factor influencing women's preference for cannabis over alcohol is the diminishing stigma surrounding cannabis use. It is now way more socially acceptable to be a cannabis consumer.


With the legalization and normalization of cannabis in many regions, women feel more comfortable exploring its benefits without fear of judgment or societal repercussions. Women are increasingly drawn to the diverse array of cannabis products available, including edibles, topicals, and tinctures, which offer discrete and customizable consumption options. This accessibility and variety contribute to cannabis's appeal as a viable alternative to alcohol.


It's truly heartening to witness this transformation as societal attitudes evolve and cannabis becomes increasingly normalized. Women are now more willing than ever to openly discuss their cannabis use, breaking free from the shadows of stigma and misinformation. This newfound openness not only empowers women to embrace their choices but also plays a crucial role in propelling the industry forward. As more women share their experiences and advocate for cannabis legalization and education, we're witnessing a surge in innovation, diversity, and inclusivity within the industry. Women's voices are amplifying the conversation, driving positive change, and shaping the future of cannabis.

Cannabis consumption is increasingly viewed as a holistic wellness practice, encompassing aspects of mindfulness, relaxation, and self-care.


From CBD-infused skincare products to cannabis yoga classes, the wellness industry is embracing cannabis as a natural remedy for various ailments and stressors. Women are leading the charge in integrating cannabis into their wellness routines, seeking balance and harmony in an increasingly hectic world.


Personally, I've experienced the profound wellness benefits of cannabis in managing anxiety. As someone who has grappled with anxiety, finding effective relief was paramount. Through my journey, I discovered the power of low-dose cannabis products tailored for relaxation. These products have been a game-changer for me, allowing me to take the edge off without experiencing the high typically associated with cannabis consumption. It's incredible how a small dose can make a world of difference, helping me feel more at ease and grounded during stressful moments.


Beyond my personal experience, numerous studies support the efficacy of cannabis in promoting relaxation, stress relief, pain management, and improved sleep. A study published in the Journal of Affective Disorders found that cannabis use was associated with reductions in perceived stress and anxiety levels among participants (Cuttler et al., 2018). Additionally, cannabis-derived compounds such as CBD have gained attention for their potential therapeutic effects. A review published in the Journal of Clinical Medicine highlighted the anxiolytic and stress-reducing properties of CBD, making it a promising option for those seeking natural relief (Blessing et al., 2015).
