What Happened When I Drank Less Booze and More Buds

Opening a cold beer at the end of a workweek was my ultimate pleasure. Hitting the clubs, I’d down vodka tonics like there was no tomorrow. Alcohol served as my preferred means of relaxation, creating unforgettable moments with friends, and achieving a state of mind that had me ready to go.

Enter cannabis soda, throwing a wild curveball into my routine.

Weed in a fizzy drink? Seriously? There was no way I was gonna watch from the sidelines. 

I dove in head first to figure out if a THC-infused drink was the vibe I had been searching for.

Here’s what happened when I swapped booze for a little extra cannabis kick as a replacement.

Are More People Choosing to Replace Alcohol With Cannabis?

The vibe at this house party shifted gears when a friend, aiming to rewrite the rulebook, busted out a four-pack of cannabis sodas. Amidst the beats and buzz of the usual wine and beer, these weed-infused drinks suddenly made alcohol seem like a throwback.

In fact, in 2023, 37% of Gen Z consumers said they opt for cannabis over alcohol

That said, there was still an underlying skepticism about adding this new drink to the arsenal.

Would this be a cold can of potential regrets or epic discoveries in my grip? What if it tasted like weed? What if I hated the buzz? What if the THC hit me like a freight train?

All that worry evaporated quicker than you can say, “Pass the joint.” 

I felt like a feather – carefree, cracking jokes and genuinely connecting with my friends on a level I hadn’t felt in ages.

This wasn’t just hanging out; this was a revelation wrapped up in a house party. The mood was electric, free from drama or late-night porcelain god worship.

Waking up hangover-free, we were unanimous – swapping booze for bud was a game-changer, a significant step to reduce alcohol intake. Heading home, I was hit with a mission: dive deep into the weed vs. alcohol debate.

Was this the beginning of my transition to team cannabis? Only time would tell, but the party had planted the seed.

Alcohol and Cannabis: Similarities & Differences

Immediately, the contrast between indulging in alcohol and embracing cannabis was stark. Both transported me to a mental state of enjoyment, yet cannabis introduced significant advantages.

Feeling elevated with cannabis, I found myself in a state of laughter, freedom, and positive energy. It was like I had control over my mood and actions, seamlessly navigating my experiences. 

The morning after is where it really hits different.

Choosing cannabis over alcohol meant I could relax deeply, free from the lingering unease that alcohol often imposes.

My history with alcohol hangovers is like a horror movie marathon – migraines, stomach doing backflips, the spins, and even diving into the deep end of the feels pool with depression and anxiety. There were days I’d be glued to my bed till the sun was high in the sky, nursing the battle scars from the night before.

But mornings after mixing in some cannabis drinks as an alternative? Complete 180.

No hangovers, just pure, refreshed vibes with fewer calories. I’m up with the sun, ready to crush it, whether there’s work on the horizon or a marathon of errands. 

Cannabis has flipped the script on my after-party recovery, and honestly? I’m not looking back.

One of the differences I did notice between drinking alcohol and drinking cannabis is that it’s clear they hit your system in totally different ways. 

Weed works its magic by cozying up to your endocannabinoid receptors, while alcohol takes a detour through your liver. 

Sure, they both mess with your central nervous system, but let’s be real – alcohol is the heavyweight champ of bad news in the long run. Cannabis? It’s not a magic elixir, but when it comes to worrying about what I put in my body, everything in moderation. 

Let’s talk facts – studies have shown that alcohol isn’t the greatest for your health. In fact, the World Health Organization basically says there’s no ‘safe’ level of alcohol use. Even your casual sips can usher in a whole parade of nasties like cancer and heart failure.

Dive deep into the bottle, and you’re looking at a high-speed chase toward liver disease and a whole host of problems that don’t exactly have an easy fix.

But here’s where cannabis really shines: try to overdose on your cannabis soda. 

Spoiler alert – you can’t. That’s a massive win for anyone who’s ever gone toe-to-toe with their liver.

Both booze and bud get those dopamine juices flowing, but if you’re alcohol-dependent, weed might be the secret weapon you need.

It’s like swapping your heavyweight hangovers for a feather-light high that could reduce your alcohol intake.

With medical marijuana getting the green light in most places and whispers of its benefits for everything from pain to insomnia – not to mention cannabis doesn’t cause withdrawals– it’s worth asking: why not make the switch to cannabis soda as your new party starter? 

It’s not just a trend; it’s a lifestyle tweak that could keep the party going without the collateral damage.

Cannabis Drinks Don’t Need to Replace Alcohol Fully

I’m not about to ghost alcohol for good – nor do I advocate completely moving away from alcohol. Whether hitting the dance floor or happy hour, alcohol is usually my plus one. 

But when the scene’s right and I want an alternative to alcohol for a couple of drinks, I’m Team Cannabis all the way.

Picture this: a space where alcohol and weed unite in a way that isn’t detrimental to your peace. It’s like mixing two worlds, each vibing off the other. Having cannabis drinks in the mix means everyone has an option to consume what they want.

It’s a tale of two substances, each with its time and place, but one thing’s clear: when it comes to recovery and vibes, cannabis might just be the smoother operator.

More on The Cultural Shift from Alcohol to Drinkable Cannabis

As I dug more into the increase in cannabis use compared to alcohol, I realized this was more than just a fad, but a shift in the culture instead. 

Cannabis is crashing the recreational scene, riding the wave of trends like Dry January.

Since alcohol is often associated with an increased risk of many health conditions, many people are choosing to reduce the level of alcohol in their lives.

“We have to start seeing cannabis as an ingredient and treating it as an ingredient,” says bartender and cannabis activist Bryan Rojas. “When you approach it with a drug mentality, people don’t feel safe, but making people feel safe and welcome comes with hospitality. We can create a harmony between these two great industries.”

The cocktail scene’s getting a makeover, thanks to some game-changing moves in cannabis mixology. Imagine sipping on a cocktail that doesn’t just elevate your spirits but actually gets you high. That’s right – we’re talking cannabis and CBD-infused spirits, turning your average mixed drink into an extraordinary experience. 

Budtenders are now playing alchemist, crafting strain specific concoctions that promise a new adventure with every sip. Whether you’re into the uplifting vibes of sativa, the chill of indica, or the balanced buzz of hybrids, there’s an infused drink out there that lets you explore the best of cannabis without ever lighting up.

Pros & Cons of Substituting Weed for Alcohol

Before diving into the world of cannabis or any cannabinoids, it’s crucial to check their legal status in your location. Here’s a quick rundown on navigating the legal landscape. Even if it’s legal to use cannabis in your state, remember that it’s still against the law to get behind the wheel when you’re intoxicated. If cannabis in all its forms – from buds to edibles – is off-limits in your area, then sadly, cannabis drinks are too.

Now, there might be moments when opting for a drink might seem more straightforward than getting high. For instance, if you’re the designated driver, alcohol does clear out of your system at a predictable pace – roughly one hour per drink. On the flip side, experts suggest a solid eight-hour gap after enjoying a cannabis-infused beverage before hitting the road.

So, if a cannabis cocktail is on the menu, plan your ride home accordingly – whether it’s a friend with a sober wheel or a quick app-hailed cab.

Finding your perfect THC dose is a bit of an adventure. Too much in unfamiliar territory, and you might find yourself on a less-than-chill anxiety ride. 

It took me a spell to figure out just the right amount of cannabis soda that hit the spot. Starting small is the way to go – Mary Jones recommends half a soda and then giving it about an hour to do its thing. 

If you’re still feeling earthbound, the other half might just launch you. And if you’re after a stronger experience the next time around, dialing it up to a full can or doubling down could be your next move. Just remember, the journey to finding your sweet spot is different for everybody. 

Finding Your Personal Balance

Diving into the world of cannabis has been a game-changer. Cutting down on alcohol and making space for weed has transformed my lifestyle in ways I hadn’t imagined. It’s not just about feeling physically healthier and cutting down on calories. My social experiences have evolved; I find myself enjoying gatherings more and engaging in conversations that go beyond the surface.

And the sleep? It’s like hitting the reset button every night. In terms of health, both immediate and long-term, opting for cannabis over traditional drinks feels like a smart move.

Sure, I’ll still toast with a beer or swirl a glass of wine in good company. But when I’m vibing at home or diving into the party scene, it’s a Mary Jones cannabis soda that’s got my back.

For anyone, even just weed-curious, dipping your toes into cannabis beverages could be your next big thing. Ease into it, pick a chill scene, and you might just find yourself a convert.

And if you’re asking for my go-to? It’s got to be Mary Jones Hemp Derived Delta 9 Soda. Whether you’re about that Root Beer, Berry, Green Apple, or Orange & Cream life, Mary Jones has you covered. You can skip the line at the dispensary – and grab your favorite Mary Jones flavor at our online store

Grab a can or a four-pack and get ready for a shift in your social sipping habits. Trust me, it’s a change you’re gonna want to toast to.

If there is a dispute between participants on this Site, or between users and any third party, including in connection with any Third Party Materials, you agree that Jones is under no obligation to become involved and you are solely responsible for such disputes.

            (e) Ratings and Reviews
Our Site may allow you to rate, and post reviews of, Products. Any ratings or reviews provided by you are considered User Submissions and are governed by these Terms. Ratings and reviews are not endorsed by Jones, and do not represent the views of Jones or of any affiliate or partner of Jones. Jones does not assume liability for any ratings and reviews or for any claims, liabilities, or losses resulting from or relating to ratings or reviews. We reserve the right to modify, remove, or exclude any rating and/or review for any reason at any time, without notice.

            (f) Copyright Infringement Claims
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials available on the Site infringe your copyright, you (or your agent) may send to Jones a written notice by mail or fax, requesting that Jones remove such material or block access to it. If you believe in good faith that someone has wrongly filed a notice of copyright infringement against you, the DMCA permits you to send to Jones a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA. See for details. Notices and counter-notices must be sent in writing to the designated Copyright Agent for Jones as follows:

We do not guarantee, represent, or warrant that your use of the Site will be uninterrupted, timely, secure, or error-free. We have the right to remove all or any portion of the Site for indefinite periods of time or terminate access to the Site, without notice to you.

You expressly agree that your use of or inability to use the Site is at your sole risk. The Site and any Product is provided ‘as is’ and ‘as available’ for your use, without any representation, warranties, or conditions of any kind, either express or implied, including all implied warranties or conditions of merchantability, merchantable quality, fitness for a particular purpose, durability, title, and non-infringement.

In no case shall Jones, our directors, officers, employees, affiliates, agents, contractors, suppliers, service providers or licensors be liable for any injury, loss, claim, or any direct, indirect, incidental, punitive, special, or consequential damages of any kind, including, without limitation, lost profits, lost revenue, lost savings, loss of data, replacement costs, or any similar damages, whether based in contract, tort (including negligence), strict liability, or otherwise, arising from your use of the Site or any Product, including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in any content, or any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of the Site or Product, transmitted, or otherwise made available via the Site, even if advised of their possibility. Because some states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or the limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states or jurisdictions, our liability shall be limited to the maximum extent permitted by law.


You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Jones and its subsidiaries, affiliates, partners, officers, directors, agents, contractors, licensors, service providers, subcontractors, suppliers, interns, and employees, harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, made by any third-party due to or arising out of your breach of these Terms of Use or the documents they incorporate by reference, or your violation of any law or the rights of a third-party.


In the event that any provision of these Terms of Use is determined to be unlawful, void, or unenforceable, such provision shall nonetheless be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, and the unenforceable portion shall be deemed to be severed from these Terms of Use, such determination shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any other remaining provisions.


These Terms of Use and any policies or operating rules posted by us on this Site or related hereto constitutes the entire agreement and understanding between you and us and govern your use of the Site, superseding any prior or contemporaneous agreements, communications, and proposals, whether oral or written, between you and us (including, but not limited to, any prior versions of the Terms of Use).

The obligations and liabilities of the parties incurred prior to the termination date shall survive the termination of this agreement for all purposes. These Terms of Use are effective unless and until terminated by either you or us.

If in our sole judgment you fail, or we suspect that you have failed, to comply with any term or provision of these Terms of Use, we also may terminate this agreement at any time without notice and you will remain liable for all amounts due up to and including the date of termination; and/or accordingly may deny you access to the Site (or any part thereof).

Any ambiguities in the interpretation of these Terms of Use shall not be construed against the drafting party. The failure of us to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. These Terms of Use and any separate agreements whereby we provide you the Site shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Washington.

We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to update, change, or replace any part of these Terms of Use by posting updates and changes to the Site.
