CBD & HANGOVERS
Once metabolised, alcohol's ethanol converts into a hangover-inducing toxin called 'Acetaldehyde', which causes liver detoxification.
CBD offers a natural relief that can reverse the metabolic consequences of ethanol & minimise your suffering without adding any negative side effects to the mix.
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) exists in all living vertebrae and mainly consists of cannabinoid receptors known as CB1 & CB2.
Research suggests that the ECS system helps to regulate vital health functions in the body, such as sleep, appetite, pain, or the immune system response.
However, alcohol consumption can greatly affect the functionality of these CB receptors, which puts your ECS off balance.
CBD has been shown to get the ECS back on track by restoring homeostasis, or balance, through its indirect interaction with CB1 & CB2 receptors.
Dehydration & related symptoms
Putting this into practice, your monster migraine comes from dehydration and an imbalanced ECS.
Anxiety & depression
Anxiety & depression following a night of drinking can be attributed to least in part to an increased cortisol level in your brain and other alcohol-induced symptoms. The anxiolytic effect of CBD is similar in efficacy to anti-anxiety medication or antidepressants through its interaction with Serotonin 5HT1-A-receptors (they regulate anxiety & fear). CBD can ease your brain's response to stress and maintaining your cortisol levels.
CBD is a powerful antioxidant - some research suggests even more powerful than vitamin C and E - that when consumed after drinking can put vitamins back into your body and help reduce free radical damage by flushing out toxins (such as Acetaldehyde).
