CBD can be used for so many different purposes. It's such a versatile product! One use for CBD is to ease nausea. It can be really helpful for easing nausea related to IBS, food sensitivities, or even chemotherapy medications. Here are a few tips to follow when selecting and using CBD for nausea.
Buy an oral and non-oral CBD product.
Taking an oral CBD preparation can really help ease nausea. However, there may also be times when you feel too nauseous to swallow the CBD or when you feel like you're going to vomit if you do swallow anything. In situations like this, you'll want to have another way to get your CBD. A vaporizer pen can be a good choice; you can inhale the CBD from it. A topical preparation you can rub on your abdomen and chest can also help. It can at least take the edge off so you're then able to swallow the oral CBD product.
Look for oils with peppermint oil or ginger oil added.
Plain CBD oil can work well. However, many CBD companies are beginning to add other essential oils to their products. You'll see some made with peppermint oil or ginger oil. Both of these are good choices when you're taking CBD for nausea. Peppermint and ginger are both able to ease stomach and intestinal irritation. You can get the relief from CBD plus the relief from either peppermint or ginger in one product.
Take the CBD at the first sign of nausea.
Often when people start feeling some nausea, they figure they'll ignore it for a few minutes and see if it goes away on its own. But actually, if you can take CBD at this stage, you'll be better off. The CBD can have more of an effect when you take it early. You may be able to ease the nausea before it even gets too serious.
Find a dose that works.
Each time you take CBD for your nausea, pay attention to how much you use. Start off with a lower dose, and see how that works before adding more. Over time, you will narrow down exactly how much you need to take, so you don't have to question what dose to take each time you feel nauseous or irritable.
