Cannabis Strains To Help Combat Nausea

Most people associate nausea with pregnancy, but in reality, nausea can appear in all shapes and sizes. Common causes of nausea include stomach flu, motion sickness or seasickness, and food poisoning. 

What Causes Nausea?

Nausea can occur in so many different situations that it is often hard to pinpoint the exact cause. The timing of nausea can often indicate the cause. For example, if nausea appears after a meal, it could indicate food poisoning, an ulcer, or gastritis.

Research shows that THC is probably the best strain for nausea as it is more effective at reducing nausea than CBD, full-spectrum CBD products are your best CBD option for quelling queasiness.

How Does Nausea Affect Your Health?

While nausea and vomiting are two of the most dreaded, unpleasant sensations to have, they only rarely become life-threatening. Nausea and vomiting can prevent your body from receiving the nutrition it needs, and ongoing vomiting can lead to dehydration. 

Extensive vomiting can also cause electrolyte disturbances and affect the body’s acidity level since the body loses hydrochloric acid while vomiting.
