Cannabis for Nausea

We have all experienced bouts of nausea, whether from the tilt-a-whirl ride your kid begged you to go on or the winding mountain road on your family’s latest road trip. However, for many people nausea is a common occurrence, and they turn to cannabis for natural nausea relief. Especially for those dealing with underlying conditions, nausea can be a constant symptom they must learn to deal with on a regular basis. Some of these medical conditions that can cause nausea include:

  • Motion sensitivity
  • Gall bladder issues
  • Side effects of medications and treatments, including chemotherapy and radiation
  • Emotional distress
  • Allergies
  • Infections
  • Intense pain
  • Chronic pain
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Ulcers
  • Overeating
  • Gastroparesis (slow stomach emptying)
  • Bowel obstruction

Pharmaceutical antiemetics can have unwanted side effects such as fatigue, dry mouth, muscle spasms, decreased urination, and heartburn. Using cannabis for natural nausea relief is a powerful alternative for those who suffer with reoccurring nausea, and it eliminates these unpleasant side effects. Below are some strains of marijuana that are recommended for alleviating nausea:

  1. Blue Dream. A combination of DJ Short’s Blueberry F5 and Santa Cruz Haze, Blue Dream is credited for elevating energy levels and increasing creativity while still offering a pleasant body high. Add to that its pain-relieving properties, its ability to lead the way to a restful night’s sleep, and its excellent reputation for eliminating nausea, and Blue Dream promises to soon become your go to source for relief.
  2. Lavender. Named for its scent, Lavender is an indica-dominant strain with an average THC level of around 27 percent. This super relaxing cannabis strain offers users a strong body high, making it very effective for natural nausea relief, as well as relieving anxiety and depression.
  3. Northern Lights. Another indica-dominant strain that produces a very strong body high, Northern Lights is one of the more well-known hybrids. With an average THC level of around 16 to 21 percent, it is very relaxing and can induce sleep, so this strain of marijuana is highly recommended for nighttime nausea relief.
  4. Super Lemon Haze. This strain is a sativa-dominant hybrid offering a pleasant one-two punch of both head and body highs. A tangy-sweet citrusy scent and flavor add to its energetic effects, making it a popular strain for daytime use. With an average THC quotient of 17 to 22 percent, it’s an excellent means of treating anxiety and depression in addition to easing nausea.
  5. White Fire OG #2. Another sativa-dominant hybrid great for natural nausea relief and providing an increase in appetite as a bonus is White Fire OG #2, a blend of The White and Fire OG Kush. With average THC levels between 22 and 28 percent, this heavy-hitting hybrid is an excellent stress reliever and also extremely effective at pain relief.
