The season of goodwill, great food, and bad hangovers is upon us. There’s no denying that Christmas is one of the most wonderful times of the year; we get to exchange gifts, see loved ones, go out on Christmas work events, and inevitably, enjoy one or two too many glasses of wine. But nobody wants to be spending the morning after these nights nursing a headache and a sensitive stomach while the familiar festive tunes drill a hole in our already aching heads.
However, there might be an alternative cure to taking painkillers and drinking nauseating amounts of water – considering the current hype around CBD, is it worth considering whether it can cure your hangover?
What is CBD?
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a molecule found in cannabis and has become an increasingly recognized and popular ingredient in therapeutic oils and alternative medicines. Unlike THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) CBD is non-psychoactive and therefore doesn’t have a strong effect on cognition, or simultaneously causes the ‘high’ that people typically associate with marijuana.
The Positive Effects of CBD on Hangover Symptoms
Hangovers differ between person to person, depending on what they drink and their typical responsivity to alcohol and dehydration. However, the benefits of CBD target all of the possible symptoms of a hangover, with a few added extra benefits. One of the more prevalent contributions that CBD can make towards curing a hangover is the fact that it is an antiemetic and therefore possesses anti-nausea and anti-vomiting effects. Through interactions with the body’s endocannabinoid system, CBD puts your stomach at ease and enables you to keep going with the festivities of the day ahead. Furthermore, it targets the pain associated with headaches, as well as the anxiety or the ‘fear’ associated with alcohol consumption.
Choosing the Best Form of CBD Tincture
There you have it; regardless of what your hangover symptoms are, or even how intense, CBD can help you. So, the next question is; how do you take it? Most people choose to either take CBD in drop form under their tongue or else vape it, as both are a direct and quick route to the bloodstream. But it is important to be selective regarding your choice of CBD oil, as there are a lot of options on the market, but there is also a huge discrepancy in quality.
