Can cannabis relieve your hot flush?

It's HOT outside, and we're talking record-breaking, miserable heat that requires changing your shirt several times a day. The deserts of the Southwest, California's Central Valley, and West and South Texas are suffering the most. Some of the new records: Death Valley (122); Needles, California (115); Phoenix (113); Las Vegas (111); Fresno, California (107); Amarillo, Texas (102); Sacramento (101); Kanab, Utah (101); Reno, Nevada (98); and Flagstaff, Arizona (91). Part of the problem is that there's a giant heat dome above the sky that traps the hot air for days (and nights). Even with air conditioning, it's tough, but cannabis can ease your heat dome misery.

High temperatures have a negative impact on your body. Prolonged hot days can lead to poor sleep, loss of appetite, hot or clammy skin, headaches, loss of motivation, irritability, and more. It is important to stay cool and keep your body at a reasonable temperature of 97° – 99° as this can cause dangerous complications such as dehydration, heat stroke, and more.

Cannabis is one of the ways to keep your body at a normal temperature. It can lower your body temperature – temporarily. Several studies suggest that marijuana can lower body temperature in the short term. Foods like hot mustard, chili flakes, and wasabi can also provide quick relief. The cooling effect of cannabis is attributed to the way THC interacts with a receptor called TRPA-1. This receptor controls important functions, including pain relief and body temperature.

Not all weed is the same when it comes to the body chilling phenomenon. According to some consumers Switching to tinctures and edibles instead of bongs, pre-rolled joints, or other methods that involve heating the product will help the cooling response occur more quickly.

You can also replace alcohol consumption at home with cannabis drinks. Consuming it this way is refreshing and just as effective without dehydrating your body.

Cannabis is popular as a non-addictive sleep aid. In hot weather, some people have trouble falling asleep and staying asleep. The sleep-promoting effects of cannabinoids are due to their interaction with cannabinoid receptors in the brain. When cannabinoids bind to these receptors, they send signals to increase levels of the sleep-promoting adenosine and suppress the brain's arousal system. Together, these effects can contribute to cannabis users feeling sedated or sleepy.
