Why You Should Party With CBD Water

You’ve probably heard of CBD—the cannabinoid that can help relieve pain, inflammation, anxiety, and seizures—but have you heard of CBD water? CBD water is becoming popular at parties and festivals for the same health benefits. If you’re looking for a hangover prevention measure that will chill you out and act as a social lubricant, CBD water might just be the answer.

What is CBD water?

CBD water is, as the name implies, water infused with CBD. But the way most brands are making it uses pretty advanced technology. If you look it up, you’ll see most companies advertise being “nano-amplified” or made using “nanotech.” What that means is that they are using nanotechnology to essentially “shrink” CBD isolate into very tiny particles. Then, CBD is “attached” to H2O molecules to create CBD water with maximum bioavailability. This “nanotechnology” process is used so the body can absorb the most CBD possible.

Once CBD is absorbed by the body, it helps with numerous ailments, from headaches and chronic pain to anxiety and nausea. That’s because CBD essentially supplements the body’s own endocannabinoid system, which plays a part in many bodily functions including pain, mood, and immunity. However, unless it’s also infused with THC, it’s non-psychoactive so don’t expect it to get you high.

CBD water as a hangover prevention and cure

This is probably the most obvious way CBD water can be useful at a party, especially one with alcohol. Obviously, water is going to help prevent and cure a hangover because it keeps you hydrated, but CBD water is even more effective at the task.

One of CBD’s most well-known effects is its anti-inflammatory properties. It helps ease pain and inflammation all over the body, especially headaches. Therefore, CBD water is a great addition to any party to prevent a weed or booze-induced headache and keep you hydrated.

In case you do get a hangover, keep a bottle of CBD water next to your bed. Because CBD also helps people with nausea and gastrointestinal problems, CBD water can be great for the next morning. It’ll help hydrate you at the same time as relieving any nausea, dizziness, or headache your hangover may be causing.

CBD water as a social lubricant

One of CBD’s most popular uses is to help combat anxiety. In fact, according to data from Care By Design, 100 percent of those with PTSD and 85 percent of those with general anxiety in their survey experienced an improvement in mood after using CBD.

People are even reducing or completely replacing prescription anxiety medications, like Xanax and Klonopin, with CBD. Therefore, CBD’s anti-anxiety effects make it the perfect social lubricant for a party. You’ll feel calmer without feeling too messed up, making chatting with new people a breeze. Plus, CBD water is a great icebreaker.

Another one of CBD’s effects is its ability to counteract THC. If your parties look anything like mine, there’s a lot of weed going around. Blunts, bongs, joints, vapes, my friends and I like it all. However, there’s always someone who gets too high, or we all get too stoned and sleepy and the night’s cut short.

To help keep everyone’s high level and chill, some hosts are offering CBD water to their guests, especially at ticketed cannabis events on the West Coast. CBD helps to keep your high in check so you can continue to smoke.

CBD water is also becoming popular with athletes and those with chronic conditions. But for me, it’s the perfect addition to any party to help me relax, keep a balanced high, and stay hydrated.
