Most people have experienced the unpleasantries that follow a night of too much drinking. The pounding headache and severe nausea is enough to make most people pledge to never drink again. But if it does happen again and you’re in need of a quick remedy, consider treating your hangover with CBD the next morning.
Alcohol is no more than poison to our bodies, which happen to be very complex organisms with a defense mechanism in place to filter out any harmful toxins: our livers. The liver needs to work much harder than normal to filter out all the harmful toxins from a night of heavy drinking, causing blood sugar to drop to potentially dangerous levels. Alcohol also dehydrates the body and lowers electrolytes, leading to those infamous hangover headaches.
Luckily, many studies have proven that CBD is effective at treating headaches and even regulating blood sugar. Moreover, a study conducted by researchers at the University of Kentucky determined that CBD reduced alcohol-related liver damage and neurodegeneration by nearly 50 percent. During the study, lab mice were injected with enough alcohol to cause life-threatening seizures, and then followed up by a transdermal injection of CBD.
“This experiment found similar magnitudes of neuroprotection following both routes of administration; transdermal CBD decreased FJB + cells in the entorhinal cortex by 56.1% (p < 0.05), while IP CBD resulted in a 50.6% (p < 0.05) reduction in FJB + cells,” the study notes. “These results demonstrate the feasibility of using CBD transdermal delivery systems for the treatment of alcohol-induced neurodegeneration.”
While this is definitely promising news, it doesn’t mean that it’s ok to go out and frequently binge drink. The damages of alcohol can be life changing and irreversible. However, it’s good to know that a little bit of CBD could be just what you need to feel better after an occasional night of partying.
