Top Strains: Can Cannabis Cure An Alcohol Hangover?

After a long night of drinking alcohol you are probably desperate for ANYTHING that will make you feel better, right? Alcohol hangover symptoms include the notorious headache, upset stomach, and possibly aches and pains, plus who knows what else. Alcohol is literally poison, and it will make you sick if you consume too much of it. Most of the unpleasant symptoms experienced during a hangover are caused by alcohol’s diuretic effects, causing the body to become dehydrated, and the toxins that are produced as the liver metabolizes alcohol. A hangover will stop once your body has rid itself of the leftover alcohol and been re-hydrated.
