Is CBD oil the New Hangover Cure?

Is CBD  oil the New Hangover Cure?

Is there anything that makes a day longer and drearier than a badly timed hangover?

For some people it's overwhelming. Abstinence is the only way forward. Yet many people wish to drink socially, without serious health effects. That means we must:

  • Find a method for averting hangovers.
  • Take available measures to protect the liver, brain, and other organs from alcohol's short- and long-term effects.

Do such measures exist, though?

Consider CBD oil.

Hemp is now a recognized agricultural product. The retail CBD business is booming. Today, possible benefits of hemp, and specifically CBD oil, have the U.S. research community's attention. Given what we're learning, you might wonder...

Can You Take CBD oil for a Hangover?
Yes, and the reason gets us to what causes a hangover. A hangover involves dehydration and intoxication—literally, an effect of toxins in the body.

Preliminary evidence shows that CBD (cannabidiol), naturally found in the hemp plant, can alleviate stress on your organs by supporting detoxification.

Research on CBD shows its potential for easing inflammation. CBD subtly alleviates nausea, headaches and migraines by engaging our body's own endocannabinoid system.

We believe the optimal way to address what ails you is to work with your own biological system—so yes, you can take CBD for a hangover.

To use CBD oil for a hangover:

  • Take your usual dose of high-quality CBD oil before drinking to avoid "overdoing it" at a party or night at the bar.
  • Keep a dose of CBD oil, along with a glass of water, on your nightstand to support your body's detox powers and avert the a.m. hangover.

Do CBD and Alcohol Mix?
CBD and alcohol are safe to take together. And CBD may help you curb your drinking and avoid hangovers. In early research, CBD shows an ability to reduce incidents of binge alcohol drinking, and thus the level of intoxication that leads to hangovers.

Studies carried out at the University of California have shown CBD's potential as an antioxidant treatment. The research, which appears in the journal Neuropsychopharmacology (2018) shows CBD's long-lasting protective action. The scientists noted that even short spans of CBD treatment protected the brain against the breakdown of neurons associated with alcohol use.

Of course, most people are already aware that CBD is a non-addictive product. The World Health Organization has declared, "CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential." Nor is there evidence, the Organization adds, of "any public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD."

CBD, then, is safe. In fact, it has proven itself medically useful for a number of conditions, the World Health Organization has also declared. Still, people might be surprised to learn that CBD actually might play a role in supporting people who are prone to addiction and heavy drinking.

CBD's potential use as a detoxification aid, or as a preventative measure for people prone to heavy drinking and hangovers, exemplify some of the most interesting and promising elements of CBD science today.
