There is always something in the air this time of year, and it’s not just smoke. Although the endless, lazy days of summer feel like a distant memory, Saturday remains the one slice of salvation. It’s the day that reminds us that there is still fun to be had, even as the sun sets sooner and backyard BBQ’s are no more. Unfortunately, the following morning, our body and brain are often singing along to the all too familiar tune of a hangover.
Hangovers, perhaps what you’re feeling at this very moment, are like a scurry of rabid squirrels moshing in your brain. It’s enough to turn any civilized human into a vampire, drained of all fluids and hissing at the mere sign of light.
For many, drinking is usually the first step into a good night. Alcohol, albeit your best bud at the time, is usually the culprit for these feelings of nausea the next day. There it went tricking you again! Oh, and if you’re a minute over the age of 30, go ahead and amplify its effects by ten for every glass.
And somehow, here you are, clinging to life. I just wouldn’t look in the mirror quite yet.
The good news is, while cannabis isn’t a magic bullet that will take away the pain but leave the memories of last night, it can reduce nausea and inflammation, instigate feelings of euphoria, and stimulate appetite. Admitting you need help is the first step towards recovery. The next step can be found here, with this list of the top 5 strains for curing a hangover to get you feeling like yourself again.
