When a night of fun turns into a morning lolling over the toilet, you’re going to need some help. A little herb is a perfect remedy for drunken bliss gone south. These top five hangover busting strains will ease that aching head and put a smile on your face.
1. Jack Herer
Jack Herer may just be one of the best sativa hybrids around. Upbeat and clear-headed, Jack is great for all-around malaise. If you need a little extra pick-me-up, this strain will always deliver. Jack Herer is particularly popular in those seeking migraine relief.
It’s a powerful pain-fighter, but it won’t leave you stuck on the couch. Pick up some of this strain when you’re hungover as all get out but still have some obligations.
2. Purple Kush
If you’re able to chill at home and ride out your hangover, Purple Kush is for you. A potent indica, this strain will help you catch up on some sleep after a late night. Its powerful body-numbing effects will also take the edge off of a post-alcohol binge. For those of you that experience intense nausea after drinking, having some Purple Kush around is a must.
Be warned, though. Purple Kush is considered one of the most heavy-hitting strains in the world. Bust out this baby when you are in real need of some herbal medicine.
For those that prefer something a little lighter, Hashberry is a nice indica that won’t make you feel wiped out. One of the best things about this strain is appetite stimulation. Eating a good, calorically dense meal is always a must when you’re battling a hangover.
When you need to eat but feel downright awful, Hashberry can lend a helping hand. This useful flower is also decent at fighting inflammation. So, try a little of this strain when you feel a little puffy and bloated after a night of drinking.
4. Super Silver Haze
When you need some energy and uplift, Super Silver Haze is the sativa for the job. It works wonders for a pounding head and will quickly zap away any excess fatigue. Though this strain is energizing, it won’t make you feel jittery. Rather, expect a calm, clear-headed vibe.
Though this strain is sativa-dominant, it has a little indica linage thrown into the mix. This gives it some nice, mellow, body-numbing effects. Try a little Super Silver when you first wake up in the morning (or afternoon).
Chemdawg is a classic strain that’s easy to find in dispensaries. This hybrid is excellent for when you need a nice and relaxed re-entry into the real world. Chemdawg promotes a nice feeling of calm while simultaneously obliterating your head and body aches. It also has mild appetite-stimulating properties, making it a great way to kickstart your day.
