Here’s Why Smoking Weed Causes Cotton Mouth And What That Means For Your Body

by 2 years ago

If you’ve ever ripped a bong or smoked a bowl then you have almost certainly experienced ‘cotton mouth’ before. It happens frequently when smoking marijuana (not always, but often). For most of time, people have assumed it’s just a harmless side-effect. New research mentioned in this clip above from MerryJane suggests it might potentially have a link to gum disease, but that’s not what we’re here to talk about.

You bros want to know what causes the Cotton Mouth sensation every time you smoke weed, and that’s what you’ll learn above. It has to do with cannabinoid receptors throughout your body. Thankfully, the end of Cotton Mouth forever could be in the very near future. A doctor has recently filed a U.S. patent for the first product designed specifically to combat the Cotton Mouth sustained from smoking the stickiest of the icky. His product consists of lemon pulp and grape seed extract, and it purports to stave off Cotton Mouth for up to six hours, which is more than enough time to smoke and sober back up.

Yes, the future is now. We might defeat cannabis-induced Cotton Mouth forever.
