CBD is excellent for many things. Pain, moodiness, chronic illnesses. But one thing that you wouldn’t expect from CBD is to be able to cure a hangover. Surprised? No wonder, people don’t talk enough about this effect of CBD. So let’s do so now.
The Symptoms of a Hangover
Many people struggle the morning after and there is a huge variety among them. Your hangover depends on your own body, what you drank, and how much you drank. But of course, it can be completely random. However, several common symptoms are there and can be talked about. Such as:
- Poor sleep
- Rapid heartbeat
- Mood disturbances
- Fatigue or weakness
- Increased sensitivity to light and sound
These are not all that serious by themselves but can be really distracting or even harmful together. But don’t worry, all of these can be solved by consuming a little bit of CBD.
How Can CBD Help?
For each symptom, there is a different answer.
Nausea and vomiting
CBD interacts with the serotonin receptors of the brain, thus alleviating the feeling of nausea. There is not much besides this but simple chemistry.
But because the nausea is gone, now you should be free of the urge to vomit as well. If not, then the CBD needs a little more time, because in this case, the problem is your stomach. But of course, CBD is there to help. Although, if you ingest it, then it will start straight from your stomach (be careful, though, if you are sensitive to eating and drinking, you might not want to do this).
Headaches and sensitivity to light and sound
Headaches might be the worst part of a hangover. For most people, the painkillers don’t do anything, and it is disruptive. But with the headache comes the sensitivity. This makes it insanely hard to do anything during the day as basically whatever you do will make your headache much worse.
We have already talked about the pain erasing the effect of CBD, which works exceptionally well with headaches. And even though there are only a few scientific studies about it, we already know that it can also work better than painkillers.
And by eliminating the headache, you will no longer be sensitive to light and sound.
Many people struggle to sleep in after getting drunk or the next night. This is because the sleep cycle was likely interrupted, and the remaining methanol in the system disrupts people’s ability to sleep.
Fortunately, though, CBD is even used for having better sleep and/or sleeping in earlier. CBD works exceptionally to cure your hangover because even if you are drunk, you can easily administer it. And let’s be honest here, even a totally wasted person would be sane enough to rub a couple of CBD drops on the inside of their mouth. It’s not a difficult task.
CBD relaxes the body and makes it easier for the user to take their mind off specific things. Including pain, dizziness, and general discomfort.

This is one of the more severe symptoms of a hangover. If you experience it for a more extended period, then we would advise that you visit a doctor instead of immediately turning to CBD as it’s only a temporary solution.
In this case, it’s straightforward. CBD interacts with the serotonin receptors, calms down the person and makes the heart slow down a little as well. Not in a dangerous way, of course, as that could cause more problems than just rapid heartbeat. Thankfully you can’t overdose in this case and slow your heart down to a level where it would be dangerous.
Mood disturbances aren’t a harmful effect of a hangover, but it certainly is annoying. It can make people angry in a short time, or it can drive anyone to bawl their eyes out because of something small. Either way, the changes in a person’s mood are usually not positive, so this symptom needs to be dealt with.
Once again, CBD relaxes the body. This way, the person’s temperament becomes much better and easier to handle. The people around them don’t need to be walking on eggshells, and it only takes a couple of drops of CBD to solve this problem.

Fatigue and weakness
This symptom is much more complicated than the ones we have talked about. This affects your entire day, and there is no medication for it. Only hopes and prayers.
If you are regularly unable to get up or move during a hangover, then it is seriously time to reconsider drinking. Unless CBD works for you and your body can process it.
And in most cases, not even CBD is enough to get people through it because it isn’t administered in time.
The reason why most people feel this way is because of the lack of sleep they got the night before. No wonder if you got home at 3 a.m. and got up at 8 a.m. as that is way too little time for your body to recover.
So, can you get over the fatigue by administering CBD before bed? Well, maybe. In most cases that isn’t enough and the person has to take an extra few drops after they wake up to deal with the remaining methanol in their system.
