Could CBD help your hangover?

What if CBD could help cure your hangover? CBD is a wonder drug, that’s helpful for everything from epilepsy to insomnia (1), so the chances of it helping your hangover pain are good. Let’s start with unpleasant hangover symptoms including headache, nausea, poor sleep and dizziness (2). CBD has already been proven to have headache reducing qualities in studies (3) and is great at reducing inflammation in general. Too much alcohol can also be dehydrating, so increased fluids are also important and can help abate nausea. Here is an article that explains how CBD can help insomnia as well.

Hangover symptoms are just half of the story though. We know that alcohol can be toxic to the body, especially in large quantities. CBD is being studied to determine if it could prevent or repair the brain and liver damage done by consuming excessive alcohol. During the test, researchers administered CBD and found that it reduced damage to the liver and reduced neurodegeneration by almost 50% (4). Alcohol can also cause free radicals – molecules that damage cells and DNA and are known to cause cancer. CBD has been shown to have an antioxidant effect (5), which can reduce the damage done by these free radicals.

With these combined benefits, CBD could be just what you need to escape your hangover pain for good.
