With New Year’s Eve approaching, you have likely found the perfect outfit, made plans with friends and are well on your way to a night of indulgence, no doubt involving a few drinks. There is one tiny detail we all like to forget –the massive hangover. Too many tequila shots? One too many glasses of wine? Have no fear, we’re here to help!
If you read the title, you know where we are going with this one…Believe it or not, cannabis has been known to help with the dreaded hangover. It may sound odd, but there is evidence that suggests that a little bit of weed can help with several symptoms of being hungover.
To start, let’s get a little “sciency”! When you consume alcohol, your body becomes dehydrated, causing many of the major symptoms of hangovers – headache, nausea, anxiety, and general bad mood. Luckily, marihuana is known to be one of the best natural remedies for dehydration (besides good ol’ H2O). It works by helping you retain water which makes it much easier for your body to recover from the effects of a hangover. Additionally, cannabis has anti-inflammatory properties that can help relieve headaches and nausea. Relieving those symptoms and a little bit of the munchies can get you on the road to recovery in no time.
The bottom line? It doesn’t really matter how you choose to get cannabis into your system. It will likely help you ease at least one of the symptoms of a hangover regardless of consumption method
So, when it comes to the actual consumption of marihuana for hangover relief, what are your options? Smoking cannabis is known to be the quickest way to feel its effects, and it can be helpful in relieving the symptoms of a hangover promptly. However, it is important to note that smoking marihuana can also cause dehydration, so always drink plenty of water before and after you smoke. Another way to consume cannabis for hangover relief is to ingest it in the form of edibles or tinctures, as these methods can be helpful in providing relief from the symptoms of a hangover for a longer period. Remember, when consuming edibles, start low and go slow (like this sloth).
The bottom line? It doesn’t really matter how you choose to get cannabis into your system. It will likely help you ease at least one of the symptoms of a hangover regardless of consumption method. So, if you’re looking for a natural remedy to help you recover from a hangover, marihuana may be worth considering. While it won’t cure your hangover, it could be a solution to help relieve the symptoms and make the process of recovering from a hangover a bit easier – even if that just means helping you to sleep it off.
Just remember to drink plenty of water, take it easy and use it as an excuse to lay in bed watching movies all day. And if you want to avoid the hangover altogether, skip the drinks and smoke weed instead!
