Why It Happens: Some studies have suggested that consuming cannabis can negatively affect sleeping patterns. So if you consume cannabis before bed, it’s possible that your high could be messing with the quality of your sleep; and ultimately making you feel fatigued the day after you smoke. But it’s worth noting that weed may actually help some people fall asleep more quickly and stay asleep longer.

Why It Happens: Dr. Tishler tells Bustle that headaches are more likely to happen while you’re still intoxicated. However, some studies suggest that cannabis can actually help relieve migraines. Still, if you’re not remembering to stay hydrated before, during, and after consuming cannabis, then you could become dehydrated and wake up with a dehydration headache the next day.

Why It Happens: Of all the reported symptoms of a “weed hangover,” Dr. Tishler says brain fog and fatigue are the ones he anticipates. However, he’s not sure why this happens, explaining, “The mechanism is unknown, but I suspect largely related [to] over-stimulation of the CB1 receptors.”
Studies have also suggested that marijuana can slow down your perception of time вЂ” and mess with your cognitive function and your short time memory when used longterm. Additionally, a 2017 study that looked at the effects of medical cannabis on people with chronic pain found that participants self-reported symptoms of brain fog in the morning.

Tell her tales of your productive day and just watch as you get back into her good graces. This should give you great mental clarity and a sense of peace knowing that the old lady is proud. ish.

Clearing your cache will do a lot for you spiritually as you will be able to think more freely and approach the day with a positive and sin-free mindset. Don’t let yesterday’s transgressions dictate your future. Get rid of these demons!
