Sunglasses & Advil: Our CBD Picks for Hangovers
So you had one too many drinks last night, woke up wondering why everything hurts, and vowed to never consume alcohol again. It happens. We've been there!And while we can't deny the magnetism of a perfectly-made martini or margarita, we can share a few natural herbs and CBD selections that can help in combating the infamous Hangover and its dreaded symptoms.
Renowned for reducing nausea and promoting digestion, ginger can surely settle an upset stomach. Plus, it's said to stimulate metabolism (i.e. the rate at which your body can process and convert food into energy, and—in this case—can get rid of any alcohol left in your system).
In addition to its uplifting aroma, peppermint relaxes stomach muscles, becoming an effective aid against issues like gas, bloating and indigestion. (After all, there's probably a reason it's the most common antacid flavoring.)
A natural stimulant, rosemary can ignite your senses and increase cerebral blood flow, meaning it can counter those feelings of mental fatigue and brain fog.
Thanks to its antioxidant properties, honey can neutralize toxins created by alcohol consumption. It also contains high amounts of fructose which helps boost your metabolism.
Alcohol depletes your body of vitamins, especially the B ones, which ultimately leads to that booze-induced fatigue and inability to function that we've all likely felt. Therefore, it's crucial to replenish those nutrients.
