Had too much alcohol? Try CBD! CBD might be just what you need to say adios to that unremitting nausea and headache that is bound to sneak up on you after a night of indulging in too much alcohol.
Consuming alcohol in large amounts can be truly harmful to the human body. Heavy drinking can cause lethal impacts that can permanently harm your liver and brain. On top of that, drinking too much alcohol can also lead to low blood sugar and dehydration, both of which are known to cause pounding headaches, dizziness, blurred vision, and vomiting. The over consumption of alcohol can cause molecules within your body to damage healthy cells and DNA, which can ultimately cause cancer.
A study conducted at The University of Kentucky set out to determine if treatment with CBD could in fact counteract or even repair liver and brain damage resulting from an over consumption of alcohol. To complete the experiment, researchers injected rats with enough alcohol to cause perilous seizures from severe neurodegeneration (the progressive loss of structure or function of neurons, including death of neurons). At the time of the experiment, the researchers managed CBD transdermally (through the skin). The result of CBD treatment administered this way, reduced damage to the liver and reduced neurodegeneration by almost 50%! Pretty amazing, huh?
Now, we here at Natural Stress Solutions do not condone the over consumption of alcohol. However, if you are of legal age, and find yourself hungover, we suggest drinking lots of water.Along with drinking lots of water, pair that water with your favorite CBD tincture, and help get rid of the nasty side effects, as well as help to restore the healthy molecules within your body.
