What Is a Weed Hangover & How to Get Rid of One

A not wanting to get out of bed because she has a weed hangover

A “weed hangover” is an after-effect of cannabis use, which usually happens the day after consuming more than you typically do. Not everyone experiences a weed hangover, though. This is because people have different levels of tolerance for tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive compound found in cannabis. On top of that, the strain and its genetic makeup play a factor in the effects on a person. 

Going low and slow and knowing your limits are the best way to avoid a weed hangover, but in cause you’re reading this after the fact—here are some helpful tips and tricks to answer the query, “how to get rid of a weed hangover.”

Common Symptoms of a Weed Hangover

While most people associate hangovers with alcohol, overconsumption of cannabis can cause people to experience lingering effects the day after as well. You may have a weed hangover if you’re feeling any of the following:

What Should I Do If I Have a Weed Hangover?

1. Drink Lots of Water

When you consume cannabis or even after doing so, one of the things you should prioritize is staying hydrated. This can fight dehydration and help you recover from cottonmouth. On top of that, drinking lots of fluids can help eliminate the lingering effects of cannabis within your body.

Drinking water will also lessen any headache you might have since this helps with improving the blood flow to your brain! 

2. Eat a Hearty Meal

The best way to cure any type of hangover is to eat a good meal. By doing so, you will regain any lost energy since the body now has something to burn. When choosing what to eat, try to pick whole foods over anything processed. This is because the former has all the nutrients you need, while the latter doesn’t have as much. 

3. Get Your Body Moving

Now it’s time to limber up and sweat a little—go for a walk outside and soak up the sunlight! While doing so, make sure to breathe and exhale deeply to take in lots of fresh air. You may be feeling like you never want to leave the couch, but take advantage of whatever is left in your system because working out while high can improve recovery! 

4. Stretch and Meditate

Putting your body in different positions can relieve any tension you may be experiencing and help with brain fog or difficulties concentrating. On top of that, it also helps to deliver oxygen to different body parts. 

After stretching, try adding your go-to meditation process. Allow your mind and body to adapt to the environment to prevent yourself from feeling overwhelmed due to the hangover.

5. Take a Relaxing Bath!

After sweating it out, complete your hangover remedy with a soothing bath. This will relax your muscles and leave you feeling refreshed. 

To really melt into it, we recommend adding a CBD bath bomb to your warm water before settling in. The aromatic blends of citrus, lavender, and chamomile will whisk you away to a world where weed hangovers don’t exist.

6. Drink Tea

To stimulate your mind, drinking tea will do the trick. The caffeine content will be enough to make you feel alert and have more control over your body. Additionally, they’ll give you the energy boost you need to power through your day!

7. Rest Some More

If you still feel tired, sleep is the answer to your cannabis hangover. Cannabis can affect the body’s natural sleep cycles, making it difficult for users to get a restful night’s sleep. Sleeping for a few hours after using cannabis can help your body restore its natural balance and give you a much-needed energy boost.

8. Apply a CBD Topical

It might not be the best idea to smoke more cannabis when you’re experiencing a weed hangover. Instead, consider applying a CBD oil or cream to your temples to alleviate any dull headache that may still be lingering.

Avoid Cannabis Hangovers by Consuming Responsibly

Choosing to use cannabis responsibly and in moderation is the best way to avoid a weed hangover altogether. The key is to start low, and go slow.

Another thing you can do to prevent a weed hangover is to choose high-CBD, low-THC strains such as the Pure Sun strain by Pure Sunfarms. At True North Cannabis Co. you have a wide selection of flowers to choose from, and our knowledgable budtenders will be more than happy to assist you in finding the best strain for you!
