We’ve all been there. The drinks are flowing, music is loud, the night is young, life is good!
And then… the next morning hits. Headache, nausea, generally feeling like a worn-out dishrag. There may not be an all-out cure for hangovers, but broad spectrum CBG just might help.
Cannabigerol, or CBG, is known as “the mother of all cannabinoids.” The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a cell-signaling system in the body that controls several processes in the body, including sleep, mood, and appetite. CBG interacts with it, as does alcohol, but the difference is, alcohol’s interactions are negative. Cannabinoids can help ease pain and inflammation, lessening the headaches that so often accompany the worst hangovers.
Also, the nausea. Is there anything worse? The good news is products that contain broad spectrum CBG might help with that too. It gets complicated, but the ECS controls vomit centers in the brain as well, and CBG/CBD does have some anti-nausea benefits through its effects on serotonin levels in the brainstem. Research suggests CBG activates serotonin receptors in the brain, thereby lowering serotonin levels, reducing nausea and the urge to vomit.
Broad spectrum CBG might not be the only hangover cure you’ll need, but it certainly appears it helps with some of the most unpleasant symptoms.
