Cinco de Mayo, the 5th of May, a minor holiday in Mexico, but widely celebrated here in the U.S. was initially known for Mexico’s stunning military victory in 1862 over the French forces of Napoleon III. By the 1930s though, the holiday became an opportunity to celebrate Mexican identity, promote ethnic consciousness and build community solidarity.
Today, revelers are from all ethnicities because, honestly, who doesn’t like a party? This year, Cinco de Mayo, which coincidently falls on Taco Tuesday, is the perfect excuse to grab your favorite Mexican dish and couple it with your favorite Mexican beer, marguarita, or mezcal. Want to enhance the flavor while also helping to remove anxiety and alleviate pain and inflammation? We recommend adding a few drops of The Apothecary Stores’ CBD tinctures to your beverage of choice. The Apothecary Stores carries premium CBD tinctures ranging from 100 mg of CBD to 5000 mg of CBD per bottle. Our tinctures also come in natural flavor and peppermint flavor.
And here’s a fun fact: the National Institute of Health (NIH) reports that CBD has been shown to protect against alcohol-induced cell damage and reduce blood alcohol concentration and addiction and withdrawal symptoms.
So, Happy Cinco de Mayo, but please, drink responsibly!
