Feeling queasy? There are many reasons why you might feel sick to your stomach. You might be having indigestion, going through chemotherapy, or just feeling under the weather. Motion sickness, food poisoning, and pregnancy can also cause nausea. A great natural remedy is cannabis. The main compounds found in weed, THC and CBD, are both helpful in treating a sick stomach. Cannabinoids stimulate our appetite while relaxing our mind and body.
The following strains are all recommended, but try and see which ones work best for you. After all, everyone’s body is different, as is every illness or condition that causes nausea. If your nausea is really bad, make sure to visit the doctor in case it’s anything serious.
TIP: If you are feeling too sick to eat an edible, try smoking or vaping one of these strains. (Also choose a strain that has a pleasing smell that will not make you feel sicker). It’s a little easier on the stomach to smoke, and it will likely be way more effective than a canna-infused cookie.
