Organic Care of California BLOG

 Here is a few Blogs written by the owners Chaz & Shantel Cornellier about the industry and things they have experienced or learned while owning a cannabis delivery service in Chico, Ca in 2017 under Prop 215 and then moving to Sacramento to own a State Liscensed Delivery, C9-0000003-LIC, immediately in 2018. It has been a crazy ride and Chaz loves to explain what the market is doing and how he sees the company doing in the near future.

Cannabis as a Potential Aid in Overcoming Alcoholism

 Alcoholism is a pervasive and destructive addiction that affects millions of people worldwide. It can have severe health, social, and economic consequences. While there are several treatment options available, some individuals have explored alternative approaches to managing their alcoholism, including the use of cannabis. In this blog, we'll explore the potential benefits and risks associated with using cannabis as a tool to overcome alcoholism.


Understanding Alcoholism

Before delving into the role of cannabis in overcoming alcoholism, it's essential to understand alcoholism itself. Alcoholism, also known as Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD), is characterized by an individual's inability to control their alcohol consumption despite adverse consequences. This chronic disease can lead to physical and mental health problems, strained relationships, and a decline in overall quality of life.

Cannabis as a Potential Alternative

Cannabis, often referred to as marijuana, has gained attention in recent years for its potential medicinal properties. While it's crucial to emphasize that research in this area is ongoing, some individuals have reported using cannabis as a substitute for alcohol or as an aid in reducing alcohol consumption. Here are a few ways cannabis might help:

Reducing Cravings: Some users report that cannabis can help reduce the cravings for alcohol. This could be due to the psychoactive compound in cannabis, THC, affecting the brain's reward system differently than alcohol.


Relaxation and Stress Reduction: Many people turn to alcohol as a way to cope with stress and anxiety. Cannabis, particularly strains with higher levels of CBD (cannabidiol), may provide relaxation and anxiety relief without the negative health effects associated with heavy alcohol use.

Sleep Improvement: Poor sleep can be a significant factor in alcoholism. Cannabis, specifically indica strains, is known for its potential to improve sleep quality and duration, reducing the need for alcohol as a sleep aid.
Harm Reduction: In some cases, individuals have used cannabis to taper off alcohol use gradually. This approach may help mitigate the severity of alcohol withdrawal symptoms and make the transition to sobriety more manageable.
Using cannabis as a tool to overcome alcoholism is a topic of ongoing research and debate. While some individuals may find relief from their alcohol cravings and related symptoms through cannabis use, it's essential to approach this approach with caution, awareness, and in consultation with healthcare professionals.
Ultimately, the most effective way to address alcoholism is through evidence-based treatments such as counseling, therapy, support groups, and sometimes medication. If you or someone you know is struggling with alcoholism, seeking help from medical professionals and addiction specialists is the recommended course of action. They can provide tailored guidance and support to ensure a safe and successful recovery journey.
