Have you ever had a hangover so bad and not known what to do about it?
If that is the case, then some CBD might help with the headache, nausea, and dizziness often associated with that morning hangover. Additionally, it could even help you save a few brain cells while drinking as too much alcohol can actually kill brain cells.
Hangover is just a term used to describe the symptoms that occur the morning after drinking too much alcohol. These symptoms always include a headache and nausea. Sometimes drowsiness and dizziness occur during a hangover. The symptoms really just depend on the person. Some lucky people can drink all they want, and they will never get a hangover. For everyone else, CBD can help cure that nasty hangover.
Madeline Taylor a writer for Sunday Scaries, found that
“Researchers actually conducted a study on lab rats to determine if CBD could reduce the effects of alcohol(alcohol toxicity). The results were shocking those unfamiliar with CBD. Those familiar with CBD are already well aware of the many great benefits.
First, some of the rats died because the researchers gave them too much alcohol, which caused a loss of brain cells and fatal seizures. The shocking part of this is that the rats that received CBD while intoxicated lost 50% fewer brain cells and survived. This shows that CBD affects mitigating the risks of alcohol toxicity and poisoning.”
CBD Can Help a Headache
If you wake up hungover and are lucky enough to not have feelings of nausea, you may still suffer from headache. This can make it hard to focus and generally difficult to go about your normal day. A 2016 study of two Colorado medical cannabis clinics found that cannabis reduced migraine frequency, while a 2017 analysis concluded that cannabis will likely emerge as a potential treatment for some patients suffering from headache-related issues.
A Medium article titled CBD — The Ultimate Hangover Cure found that CBD regulates nausea and vomiting!
By interacting with serotonin receptors in the brain, CBD alleviates both nausea and vomiting when taken in small doses. Cancer patients have went as far to say that CBD has been more effective in treating nausea and vomiting than prescribed pharmaceuticals.
A promising new development may be the emergence of CBDA. Early studies of CBDA, the raw, acidic form of CBD, show that it may be an even more potent anti-vomiting treatment than both THC and CBD.
