Many people don't care about the consequences of drinking too much alcohol. But hangovers can be so intense that they can upset the whole day. Hangover can be a depressing time, but fortunately, CBD can help you get back in shape. The countless therapeutic effects of CBD are also an excellent solution for eliminating hangovers. CBD is available in many formats, such as oils or capsules, and is very easy to take. Thanks to these advantages, CBD deserves a place of honor on the bedside table, ready to be used after an alcohol-based evening.


Hangovers occur after drinking an excessive amount of alcohol. They can arise a few hours after consuming alcohol. As the pain-relieving properties of alcohol fade, a sense of general malaise is perceived that worsens over time. Typical after-effects include headache, dry mouth, nausea, fatigue, drowsiness, and muscle or joint pain.

The aftereffects occur for two main reasons: dehydration and intoxication. Alcohol dehydrates the body, both when it is consumed and when it is metabolized. Hangovers can be alleviated by drinking water regularly while consuming alcoholic beverages. Also, since alcohol stimulates diuresis, there is a tendency not to retain a lot of water and electrolytes while drinking. The consequence is dehydration, and a shooting headache the following morning.

As for toxicity, it is important to remember that alcohol is treated as a poison by the body. When it is metabolized, the stomach and liver work tirelessly to dispose of the introduced toxins. After some time, the liver enzymes run out, and the organ needs to rest. This process of metabolization can cause physical pain and psychological malaise.

Nausea, vomiting and may occur inflammation, generated by the immune system's attempt to assimilate the alcoholic substance. For some people stomach pain and nausea are unavoidable, while others mostly experience muscle and joint pain caused by the body's inflammatory response.

The intensity of hangover varies from individual to individual, based on the liver's ability to dispose of alcohol, and the level of hydration. People who are already dehydrated (for example those who drink alcohol regularly) have a greater tendency to headaches and muscle pain.


The therapeutic effects offered by CBD they are also effective in counteracting the symptoms associated with the hangover. Regardless of the symptoms, and their intensity, cannabidiol could be a valuable aid.

CBD can make an important contribution mainly thanks to its antiemetic properties (anti-nausea and anti-vomiting). By interacting with the endocannabinoid system, cannabidiol is able to attenuate the sensations of nausea and vomiting. Cannabidiol can calm an upset stomach, promoting relaxation and allowing you to continue the day.

The second important characteristic of CBD is its ability to relieve headaches and headaches. Cannabidiol has been scientifically proven to reduce inflammation throughout the body. This action reduces the pain caused by headaches and migraines. It is important to remember to drink water, to eliminate hangovers, and specifically headaches. CBD can alleviate pain, but cannot resolve dehydration.

The anxiolytic and antidepressant effects of CBD should also not be underestimated. The calming properties of cannabidiol can provide relief during the uncomfortable moments caused by hangovers. Regardless of the severity of the symptoms, cannabidiol can stimulate you to get out of bed and get active again.


Marijuana has been used for hundreds, if not thousands of years, to combat nausea and stomach pain. Cannabinoids like CBD interact directly and indirectly with our endocannabinoid system, relieving pain. This system is composed of receptors present in cells throughout the body. Some studies have shown that this system has a regulatory function on pain, mood and stress.

One scientific study published in 2011, it found that nausea and vomiting can be controlled via the endocannabinoid system. It is essentially composed of CB1 and CB2 receptors. Scientists concluded that CB1 receptor agonist action can reduce nausea and vomiting. The antagonism of these same receptors instead produces opposite effects. As for CBD, the substance is believed to potentially reduce nausea indirectly by activating the 5-HT1A somatodendritic receptors.

THC has also been clinically proven it has antiemetic effects, directly activating the CB1 receptors of the endocannabinoid system. A study he found that THC is able to reduce the feeling of vomiting by at least 50% in patients undergoing chemotherapy.


Similar to the way it treats nausea, CBD alleviates the symptoms of headache and migraine, thanks to its interactions with the endocannabinoid system. Scientists believe that the endocannabinoid system can be a valuable tool for reducing the inflammation that causes migraine.

In addition, some people with chronic migraine are believed to actually suffer from a condition called clinical endocannabinoid deficiency (CECD). CBD can solve this deficit by regulating the level of anandamide in the body. Cannabidiol has been found to inhibit the absorption of anandamide, and can therefore reduce the intensity of a migraine.


CBD also looks promising in the treatment of psychotropic withdrawal. Through its action on neurotransmitters such as dopamine, cannabidiol is able to inhibit addictive behaviors.

The human reward system acts through the release of dopamine in the brain. Substances like alcohol stimulate this reward system, causing an imbalance in neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin. The release of these molecules generates the particular effects associated with alcohol consumption. However, constant long-term alcohol consumption can leave the brain in a state of hyperactivity, triggering a neurochemical need for alcohol.

Thanks to its action on the endocannabinoid system, CBD can restore the brain's reward system. The endocannabinoid system plays an essential role in the interactions between neurotransmitters that control emotions and desires. According to the scientists, an imbalance or a deficiency of endocannabinoids could cause addictive behaviors. Among alcoholics, CBD consumption reduces the frequency and intensity of cravings for alcohol.
