January is known for a lot of things: New Year's, resolutions, Dry January — and even National CBD Month!

That’s right: January is officially National CBD Month, and Elevate Holistics is here to celebrate. As a cannabinoid that helps people feel better literally from head to toe, it’s time to give CBD the recognition it deserves. 

Let’s talk all about what National CBD Month is, its history, and how you can celebrate alongside us. 

The History Behind National CBD Month 

If you’ve never heard of CBD Awareness Month, that’s probably because it’s not on your typical calendar. National CBD Month is a relatively new “holiday,” but it’s one that the cannabis industry takes very seriously. 

Essentially, this month is all about cannabidiol. People and businesses take extra time than usual to educate others about CBD, put their CBD products on sale, and even talk more openly about the benefits of the cannabinoid. 

National CBD Month started back in 2020 from the world-renown CBD brand, cbdMD.

After seeing study after study demonstrating the complex benefits that cannabidiol could bring — and learning that about 35% of all Americans still didn’t know what CBD was — the company knew it was time for a change. 

Thus, they started celebrating National CBD Month. cbdMD curated this monthly celebration to help bring awareness to the cannabis plant, CBD’s benefits, and just how accessible this cannabinoid can be.

The holiday is meant to educate the public on this compound and share its remarkable results with anyone who is willing to listen. It’s also about busting previous myths that may have been established about the hemp plant. 

Now that we know what CBD Awareness Month is all about, let’s get to the fun part: the celebration.

How to Celebrate 

Thankfully, there’s no right or wrong way to celebrate CBD Awareness Month. When it comes to this holistic holiday, there are various ways you can commemorate the special cannabinoid. Here are some of our favorite ways. 

Spread Awareness 

First and foremost, it’s ideal to take time this month to spread awareness about CBD and its benefits. Maybe you share a few posts on Facebook or post some CBD-related stories to your Instagram! Regardless of what you do, letting other people know about National CBD Month — as well as what CBD is — can do wonders for people out there seeking organic relief. 

During this month, it’s important to share stories about CBD. Real people of all ages — from around the world — have found solace in the cannabinoid, and there are incredibly heartwarming stories to share.

If your friends and family don’t know about Charlotte Figi, that’s always a great place to start, as that’s where most of the country’s acceptance of CBD began. (Rest in peace, sweet girl.)

Educate Others 

Along with telling stories of people who benefitted from CBD, January is also a good time to educate others and debunk some of the main myths about CBD floating around. 

Many people know that CBD comes from the cannabis plant, and they immediately assume that it is a psychoactive cannabinoid that will make you feel high. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth! Take the time to let others know that CBD isn’t intoxicating, and it certainly won’t make you fail a drug test on its own.

It also may be helpful to talk about the non-addictive properties of this cannabinoid, as well as the various consumption methods. While others may assume you have to smoke CBD to enjoy it, we all know that’s not true.

So, why not bring up the idea of a tincture or even a topical to someone in your life? They may not even realize this is an option for relief and relaxation.  

Enjoy the Products! 

Finally, the best — and most enjoyable — way to celebrate National CBD Month is by purchasing some products for yourself! During the month of January, many of your favorite CBD brands will likely have various sales going on to promote the holiday (especially cbdMD). 

Take this time to purchase some CBD products you’ve had your eye on and see just how helpful they can be. These days, you can find CBD flower, pre-rolls, topicals, tinctures, honey sticks, coffee, tea, bath bombs, and so much more. 

No matter what your go-to method of enjoyment is, you can find your perfect CBD product (probably on sale) during the month of January — and beyond, of course.
