"Dry January" Doesn't Have to Be a Buzzkill

January 24, 2023 • 11 am

Every January you hear the expression: “New year, new you.” It’s an opportunity to make a meaningful change in your life. For some, that means participating in “Dry January” — the practice of abstaining from alcoholic beverages for the first month of the year.

According to Alcohol Change UK, which coined the phrase “Dry January,” 9 million people are participating in the movement this year in the UK alone, and that number grows exponentially when you factor in the U.S. But does doing so mean you need to give up having a fun?

Enter The Leaf El Paseo and our amazing lineup of cannabis-infused beverages. These non-alcoholic drinks are sure to lighten your mood and provide a joyful experience — without the downsides (dehydration, excess calories) and side effects (hangovers, duh) of drinking.


From the brand that brought you high-quality California sun-grown cannabis products comes Almora Live Resin Fruit Seltzer. With 15mg of THC and 5mg of CBD, this seltzer is both delicious and potent. But it’s not just a party favorite, it's also 100% vegan and only has 15 calories per can, making it good for the body and mind.
