Our Mission

At Cali Sober Social we believe in inner healing through community building and relationships.

As a person who has overcome the grips of alcoholism, I have identified a need in my sphere of influence. The need for a fun but alcohol free social setting. Let’s face it, sobriety can be heavy. It can be confusing, stressful and more importantly LONELY. When going through these seasons and transformations it is extremely beneficial to have activities, with like minded people, that provide a sense of belonging and purpose. That’s why we are here. 

At Cali Sober Social we understand the pressures of society

We understand the constant scrutiny, questions and FOMO (fear of missing out) that runs through an individual when they finally make the decision to take a night off or to quit drinking indefinitely. We also understand that certain sobriety programs are not for everyone. Cali Sober Social will provide a sense of belonging for those struggling with the spiritual grips of alcoholism as we foster energetic, safe environments, encouraging creatives from all walks of life to engage in uplifting, hangover free environments.

I’m sure you’re wondering, what does “Cali Sober” mean?

California Sober is the term used for a lifestyle  that doesn’t involve alcohol use but rather believes in the healing and therapeutic powers of cannabis. We  understand that cannabis isn’t for everyone and still aim to provide an alcohol free environment for those seeking community and connection.

Cannabis is revolutionary and it deserves the platform it has and then some.

The advances provided in both the mental and physical health field are truly magnificent and we believe there are  endless opportunities awaiting all of us when we collectively partner with hemp. We must make some major moves in our personal lives in order to ensure a safe environment for our future as we stand together in the Global Fight against Climate Change. It really  is “the gift that keeps on giving” and we hope to eradicate the negative stigma around one of the most healing herbs on the planet.

For many years the conservative community has pushed back on cannabis.

Like all things in life, if it’s meant to be, it will be. Since the decriminalization of cannabis across several states here in the US, many  have discovered its benefits and use it on a daily basis for things like: sleeping, anxiety, depression, loss of appetite, Parkinson’s, Epilepsy, Crohn’s, etc. Some scientific research states it’s even been known to reduce cancer cells! But! Don’t take our word for it, do your research and see what works best for you and your body. We do not condone giving up one addiction for another so we aim to educate people on what it looks like to respect the plant as well as, find balance, healing and teach people ways they can use cannabis and hemp to clean up their personal environment, in turn changing the world around them.

Looking for a change?

If you’re considering getting sober from alcohol or just wanting to take a  “cali sober” month to get back on track, be of good cheer! You are not alone! You can get through this, you will get through this and you are in control, we are just here to help you remember that.  I look forward to building a better future with you. See you soon.
