Motion Sickness and CBD


Do you ever get car sick? Do you ever have seasickness on a cruise? How about getting nauseous during a bumpy flight? Me too. It’s one of the worst feelings in the world. It’s awful and you pray it ends soon. Emesis is the action or process of vomiting. YUCK! And an antiemetic is a drug or product effective against vomiting and nausea. CBD is an antiemetic. It helps stop nausea and vomiting. CBD may help with nausea because of its interaction with serotonin receptors.  The non-intoxicating cannabinoid CBD interacts with serotonin releasing receptors and when given in relatively small, consistent doses has been shown to help alleviate both nausea and vomiting. CBD can also be effective in easing anxiety which can help patients manage the angst of chronic nausea. CBD taken with THC seems to work better but some people can’t take THC because of their jobs or state regulations. And if you take too much THC you can get a bit intoxicated. Therefore, you need a product that contains sufficient CBD.

Now like most things in life it’s easier to prevent nausea from starting than control it once it’s started. Like a car rolling downhill. A simple brick will prevent it from moving but once it starts downhill it’s difficult to stop. Besides science, how do I know it prevents nausea and motion sickness? I’m the guy who can’t look down while riding in a car to check directions or I’m immediately nauseous. One day I’m riding in the back seat of a car and was working on my phone. Fifteen minutes late I realized I wasn’t throwing up. It was my daily doses of CBD that was preventing it. You can bet I’ll be taking it before and during any flights, cruises, or long
backseat rides. CBD will offer the same benefits for your pets as well and you don’t need a special pet tincture. Any of our tinctures will work perfectly well. For the best results, you or your pet should take it a few days before traveling.
