Whether it’s a side effect from certain drugs or just a one-time bout of tummy trouble, nausea isn’t fun. Thankfully, cannabis products may help many people find relief. However, some types of weed are more effective for nausea than others. 

How Does Weed Help With Nausea?

Scientists aren’t completely sure how weed helps with nausea, but they have some ideas. The CB1 receptors that cannabis acts upon are especially concentrated in the part of the brain that helps interpret what’s going on inside the body. Cannabinoids may reduce nausea by helping the brain modulate the signals it’s receiving from the rest of the body.

Sativa vs. Indica

Sativa and Indica are the two main subspecies of weed. As you might expect, the two have slightly different effects. Sativa tends to produce more of a cerebral high, leading to increased creativity and euphoria. Indica, on the other hand, tends to produce more of a body high, leading to reduced nausea, pain relief, and the munchies.


The THC high you get from weed is modulated by other substances within the plant. Indica strains tend to contain more CBD. CBD is non-psychoactive, but it may have relaxing effects on the body that can soothe both nausea and vomiting. If you’re looking for nausea relief, keep an eye out for weed products that also contain CBD. If you’re in the market, Strains Dispensary has a wide selection of these products.

Best Ways to Ingest Cannabis to Treat Nausea

If you’re looking to treat nausea, you’re probably not going to want an edible. You may want to keep other forms of weed on hand. Smoking a bowl, joint, or bong works, of course. But if you can’t smoke, you can check out vapes, which produce no smoke and next to no smell. Weed tablets and sodas may be other options to help soothe your nausea.
