But a person shouldn’t just reach for any old cannabis product and expect to find their way to recovery. Some strains are better than others when it comes to dealing with the symptoms of a fierce katzenjammer. And these morning after feel bads that put us on the couch for the rest of the weekend are not all created equal. So it is crucial to select the appropriate strain to match the goals of the day.
Here’s some solid advice:
“It depends on whether you’re planning on being productive that day,” a Los-Angeles-based budtender explained to Mel Magazine. “For a hangover that you can’t get out of bed from, I recommend a CBD-heavy strain [Harlequin]. CBD has anti-inflammatory and anti-nausea properties that will help you feel slightly human again. For a less intense hangover, I’d go for an indica-dominant hybrid [Strawberry Banana], which will help with relaxing your body and working up an appetite. If you’re hungover and need to get up and go somewhere, I suggest a sativa [Green Crack] because it helps get you up and moving.”
Other strains have been known to tame a hangover, as well. Sour Tsunami, which is another high-CBD brand, has been said to snuff out nausea like a champ. There is also Northern Lights, known for its ability to help with anxiety and pain. Some say Trainwreck is their go-to strain for combatting headaches, and others like Jillybean (hybrid) for getting their energy back. Oh yeah, and some folks swear by CBD-infused water to combat both dehydration and inflammation at the same time.
As with anything, however, the person needs to find what works for them. It might take a little experimentation, but there is likely a strain out there that will help pull you out of the funk of a booze bender. Until you find it, a greasy breakfast, a few ibuprofen and plenty of water might pull you through. And if none of that helps, well, you might just need a little more practice or the number to an AA meeting.
