Can You Get A ‘Hangover’ From Consuming Too Much Cannabis?

Examining The Myth Of The Marijuana Hangover

I recently wrote an article about using marijuana to help cure an alcohol hangover. While I was looking at stuff online about that topic, I constantly ran into articles dealing with a hangover from marijuana. I personally don’t think I’ve ever had a marijuana hangover, but I have consumed so much marijuana in a night that I was still very high when I woke up the next morning.

I’m wondering if maybe that’s what people are experiencing and calling it a hangover. When I wake up clear headed, and then consume marijuana throughout the day, I can ease into my high and adjust my mood accordingly. However, when I wake up high from the previous night’s marijuana session, I don’t have that adjustment time, which I’d imagine can be quite much for the ‘once in a while’ marijuana consumer.

I found a government study that deals with the topic of marijuana hangovers. Since the government has long been in the business of spreading anti-marijuana propaganda, take it for what you will:

“Thirteen male marijuana smokers participated in a study to determine whether marijuana smoked in the evening would result in measurable subjective or other behavioral effects the following morning. Subjects smoked either active (2.9% delta 9THC) or placebo (0.0% delta 9THC) marijuana cigarettes according to a standardized smoking regimen. Smoke inhalation was monitored by measuring expired air carbon monoxide (CO) levels before and after smoking. Acutely, active marijuana produced significant changes in heart rate, CO level, various measures of subjective effects, and behavioral tasks of card sorting, free recall and time production. When the test battery was repeated the following morning (approx. 9 h after smoking), significant changes were observed on two subjective effects scales and on the time production task after active, but not placebo, marijuana. These apparent ‘hangover’ effects were different from the acute effects of marijuana. The findings suggest that marijuana smoking can produce residual (hangover) effects the day after smoking. The precise nature and extent of these effects, as well as their practical implications, remain to be determined.”

If the marijuana hangover is real, and you feel that you are experiencing it, here are some recommendations that I’ve found on marijuana forums:

“If you don’t have a vaporizer then turn on the shower for a bit…only hot or you can put yourself into a regular shower and steam your throat and lungs that way w/an added bonus: the sound and feel of the water can be very “trippy”. I like drawing on the mirror in the steam afterwards…quite cool FX as your face appears beyond the condensed steam (with a BIG smile!). You can also try following the pot smoking with tea drinking. Then keep taking “hits” off a regular water bottle as your mouth and throat dry up again till you drift off into a colourful sleep. I hope that helps. Pleasant dreams my friend.” - MyInner Child

“more sleep= less hangover. trust me on this, i was a capt fucking pothead a few years back. I smoked about 5 grams a day for a year. in the end, I burnt out, and i only smoke chron on the weekends now. but yeah, more sleep. oh, I also found eating 1.4 of a grapefuit in the morning helped me out.” - ThePyschonaut52

    I get something like a hangover if I smoke late at night, then go to sleep. Usually I wake up with a headache. But it’s definitely milder for me than alcohol’s hangover.

    The precise nature and extent of these effects [i.e., hnagover] . . .
    remain to be determined?”. If the people who did the study don’t know the effects then why the hell are they wasting their time–and taxpayer money–doing it?

    • Ron

      A better idea is to do a new and more objective study, with mega-quantities of top grade weed provided. I offer myself as the first participant in that study.

      • Jking29

        I volunteer as the second participant . And no placebos in this study we need to know the real effects. You know for health

    I for one never get hangovers from marijuana … in fact its quite the opposite, overall I feel much better the next day … where as if I drink to much alcohol, I just end up feeling like total sh%t the next day

  • Harry Om

    Yes, I’ve gotten a hangover.

  • Apparition

    Some years back I owned a real nice brass four hose hookah with a 3 inch bowl on top. One evening I filled it up with some high grade (uncompressed) Mexican and crumbled in about half an ounce of black Afghani hash. The next morning I was still so stoned that I had to sit down while brushing my teeth.

    There was no headache or dehydration as with an alcohol overindulgence, but I’d call call what I experienced a “hangover”.

  • Sarijuana
