It’s easy to think, in the morning after a heavy night out, that there can’t possibly be anything worse than a hangover.
That unquenchable thirst, the splitting headache and the constant feeling of nausea – and that’s without even considering, arguably, the worst part – the anxiety. We’ve been wondering if there is something we can do to prevent this sorry state of affairs and, more specifically, whether CBD could be the answer to “hangxiety”.
We’ve all been there. Reluctantly opening your eyes to face the aftermath of the night before. At first, you might be happy with the fog that has settled over your mind but eventually, that creeping feeling emerges as your memory begins to return. What follows is a cringe-fest of flashbacks (or lack of) that sneak up on you and take you unawares into a pit of self-pity and hatred.
Sounds pretty dramatic, right? Obviously, nothing you did last night has turned your friends against you or was bad enough that you can’t show your face in public ever again (in most cases, at least). And yet, your “hangxiety” will tell you otherwise.
Surely there is a way to avoid such a dreadful feeling. Is it possible to enjoy a drunken night out without living to heartfully regret it the next day?
CBD is a non-intoxicating compound found in the cannabis/hemp plant. In recent years, it has become an immensely popular ingredient among wellness fanatics and those looking for some natural relief. While clinical evidence remains limited, early findings suggest that CBD (cannabidiol) could be helpful for a wide range of ailments, including anxiety.
USING CBD TO TACKLE HANGOVER ANXIETY
Today, countless people have incorporated CBD into their wellness regime in the form of CBD Oils, CBD Gummies, CBD drinks, and many other products. But could CBD be useful as a hangover aid? We’re taking a look at how you could use CBD, either alongside alcohol or in replacement of it, to help prevent the ever-feared hangxiety from emerging.
USING CBD ALONGSIDE ALCOHOL
A number of products have helped to make the co-consumption of CBD and alcohol incredibly easy. In addition to CBD beers and ciders that can now be purchased online, our CBD Drinks range can make for the perfect mixer for your favourite tipple.
Opting for a CBD mixer instead of your usual tonic or lemonade is an easy way to incorporate a generous dose of high-quality CBD – and with so many delicious flavours now available, why wouldn’t you?
SWAP OUT THE ALCOHOL FOR CBD
Most of us like to enjoy a refreshing or indulgent alcoholic drink as a way to unwind and relax after a busy day. Whether it’s out and about with friends or at home with a loved one, a cheeky G+T or glass of prosecco is often seen as the ideal way to ease yourself into the weekend and shake off the week just passed. But what if there was an alternative – one that didn’t come with the terrible hangover the next day?
Swapping out your go-to alcoholic beverage for a CBD drink (at least once in a while) could be a great way to say “goodbye!” to that Saturday morning hangxiety. Evidence suggests that CBD could be useful in reducing feelings of stress and anxiety, making it the perfect option for anyone looking to unwind for the evening – without fear of regretting it the next day.
More and more people are turning to CBD for its impressive wellness potential. And with such a wide range of CBD products now available online and in supermarkets, why not give it a go as a way of getting rid of that pesky hangxiety once and for all?
