We’ve all been there. Hangovers. It starts nicely enough. A good friend calls and invites you out for dinner and “a drink.” Stepping away from the day-to-day and treating oneself to a nice meal and some delicious cocktails is not only necessary sometimes—it’s downright essential.
That being said, a fabulous dinner ambiance and some great conversation with old friends can easily set the mood for some good old fashioned over-indulging. And hey, sometimes that’s okay. Wait for a Friday or Saturday night and spoil yourself rotten with a smorgasbord of delectable appetizers and refreshing alcoholic beverages. In the middle of this ritual of decadence and gastronomic debauchery the famous last words “a drink” easily get drowned away in a sea of excess.
At this point in time, there are a couple of routes to take. First of all, you can have two or three drinks at dinner and go home with a full stomach and get a good night’s rest. Or, you can fully commit to losing inhibitions and proceed to the bar for some “after-dinner drinks.”
Trust me my friends, I highly recommend option number one. Nonetheless, for those hard-working folks that really like to blow off some steam over the weekend “a drink” easily becomes drunkenness. However, if you fit into category number two it doesn’t necessarily mean that your weekend needs to be sacrificed to feelings of shame and respite wound up in a hangover. This is because, a little bit of medication with the right cannabis strain can really help soften the blow from a night of heavy drinking.
Know that there are multiple ways to consume marijuana, you can eat or drink it, rub it into your skin, vape, smoke and much more. Ask the budtenders at your local dispensary which products have the strains listed and then pick how you want to put it into your body.
