Marijuana Hangovers: How They Work, and How to Treat Them
Weed hangovers are a mystery. Unlike an alcohol hangover that generally affects everyone, there is no great explanation for a grass hangover. Maybe you smoked more than you ever smoked, or maybe you consumed weed in whole new ways. It could never happen to you, or it could happen often.
A weed hangover has a number of effects, including brain fog, headaches, fatigue, and feeling like you’re still high hours later. While they’re not as uncomfortable as a hangover, they can still be quite limiting, from smoking to hours afterwards.

Due to the legal status of marijuana, there isn’t much information available on why these types of hangovers occur. Anecdotal evidence suggests it is related to the amount of grass consumed. This varies from person to person depending on the person’s cannabis threshold.
In general, the more THC in cannabis and the more you consume, the more likely you are to get a cannabis hangover. Marijuana hangovers aren’t as debilitating as alcohol hangovers, but there are a few things you can do to get them under control.

Recurring grass hangovers can indicate that something is wrong with your cannabis use. Everyday users should try to limit the amount of cannabis they ingest by consuming it every other day or only on the weekends. Changing your cannabis smoking schedule can also help; if you get a hangover at night while smoking, try during the day.

If you have a grass hangover and don’t know what to do about it, try sleeping him off. If you are asleep and it still bothers you, avoid spending the entire day in bed, as this will likely make your situation worse. Go for a walk or run and you will quickly notice the change in your system. Don’t skip meals and stick to something healthy and natural. Stay hydrated and wait for it to pass.
