Cannabis verses Alcohol
The prohibition of cannabis had paved the way for us to grow up with alcohol as our libation of choice. The majority of 21st birthdays are celebrated with a bottomless shot glass. Many will enjoy a flight of beers at a sports game or a glass of wine to wind down at night. Now thanks to the legalization of cannabis, we can enjoy Cocoa Meds Chocolate with peace of mind.
Peace of mind not just because cannabis is legal. But also because of the positive impact that cannabis may have on your pocket, your health and the fact that you will be ready to take on the next day. If you are on the fence about cannabis and alcohol, you may reach a decision after reading this article.
Save Your Money! At a restaurant, three alcoholic drinks could cost about $45, including tip. You will also need to eat and drink water, so add another $25. Your final bill is $70.
Now let’s do the math if the average bar of cannabis infused chocolate costs about the same as a glass of wine.*
- One Bar of Cannabis Infused Chocolate: about $35.00
- THC Content in One Bar: 100mg – 280mg
- Doses for a Beginner: 10mg
- Doses Per bar: 10 – 28 doses
- Cost Per Dose: $0.53- $1.50
- Bottle of Wine: $25.00
- Glasses Per Bottle: 4-5
We are talking about $35.00 in savings AND you will still have plenty of cannabis infused chocolate to share or save for later. With the addition of $25.00 worth of food and ingesting three doses…your grand total is $29.50!!!
Take Your Pick Cannabis or Alcohol
As adults we would love to enjoy a moment of relaxation going into a weekend of fun! The common choice would be to indulge in a glass of wine or beer. But can you resist having more than one drink? Although some studies show that there are possible benefits to enjoying no more than one drink per day, there are still many adverse effects from alcohol consumption.
Some of the short-term effects of alcohol consumption include:
- Impaired motor skills
- Irresponsible decision making
- Slurred speech
- Memory loss/Black Out
In a 2004 publication of Alcohol Alert, The National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism stated the following,
“Alcohol can produce detectable impairments in memory after only a few drinks and, as the amount of alcohol increases, so does the degree of impairment…. Blackouts are much more common among social drinkers than previously assumed and should be viewed as a potential consequence of acute intoxication regardless of age or whether the drinker is clinically dependent on alcohol.”
Speaking of hangover…. Let’s be honest. How many of times have you woken up from a horrible night’s sleep with an even worse hang over? If you don’t eat or drink enough water while drinking alcohol, your body will for sure be affected even after just a couple drinks. As stated above, this is especially true for social drinkers.
Cannabis, on the other hand, produces an extremely different experience. When you ingest cannabis, the cannabinoids interact with the bodies’ endocannabinoid system. Therefore, cannabis has a direct avenue to interact with the human body i.e. cannabis can cause cotton mouth and the munchies. Pretty much cannabis forces you to hydrate and eat. What an awesome reminder! And if you take an extra bite of an edible right past your limit, you will be saying hello to a great nights’ sleep. You may wake up with a short-lived bit of grogginess – but it’s nothing that a shower, good music, good food and a bite of Cocoa Meds CBD Bar won’t fix. Trust us, you will still be able to function the next day!
So the next time you need to wind down or let loose: Choose Cocoa Meds Chocolate! You will have a blast!
