12 BEST Drinks for Cotton-Mouth

It all started with the perfectly golden and delicious dab of Blueberry live sugar. Muscle relaxed and a big smile on my face, and then BAM. It’s the Sahara desert up in my throat. Who else has had this happen? Most of us do! 

After decimating an entire case of coconut water, whilst contemplating cannabis, it came to me. Most of us are chronically dehydrated. Water is the most important substance we can consume, considering it fires off brain functioning and oh yes our bodies are 80% water. 

Cannabis often transforms our mouths into a post-apocalyptic desert wasteland, forcing the wise of us towards the oasis of the kitchen's watering hole. May-haps we are meant to consume cannabis to help us maintain optimum functioning? A penny for your thoughts on whether humans are meant to consume cannabis in the comments. (A metaphorical penny 😉, our GM will insist on clarifying.) Thus, may the dry-mouth lead you to a watery wonderland of beverages.

Here are my top 12 Best Drinks for Cotton Mouth:

1.Coconut Water

Full of natural electrolytes, pour this refreshing water on the rocks and enjoy.

2.Orange Juice

Sweet, cool, and delicious, OJ is the perfect partner for your OG. It has a good hit of vitamin C and is just the ticket out of the dry-mouth desert.

3.Lemonade

Perfect for when there may have been just a little too much canna-goodness consumed. Lemons are great for easing some of the uncomfortably high experiences that happen from going above your tolerance level. I recommend a simple homemade. 1 gallon water, 3-6 whole lemons, 10-20 drops of liquid stevia.

4.Cucumber Water/Juice

 

Grab a cool cup of cucumber juice from your local juice shop, or make it at home. If you don’t have a juice, you can pop it in the blender and strain the pulp. Cucumber pairs well with fresh mint leaves, served over ice.

5.Fruit/Herb Infused Waters

With senses enhanced, why not play up the visuals? Peel rhines to prevent a sour taste. Favorite Combos: Pineapple + Mint, Orange + Basil, Blackberry + Sage Lemon + Lime + Orange. Watermelon + Mint / Rosemerry

6.Hibiscus Iced Tea

Egyptians used hibiscus tea to lower body temperature. When sweetened, it's a wonderfully cool and refreshing tea to quench cotton mouth!

7.Ionized/ High PH Water

Not all water is created equal. Some water molecules are too big to easily absorb into cells, which leaves it sloshing around. Ionized and high PH water molecules tend to be smaller, smoother and taste better making it easier for you to hydrate.

8.Aloe Water


For the right people, aloe water can truly be an oasis for your parched desert throat. However, some people find the texture to not be their cup of joy.

9.Strawberry Juice

Have you had the pleasure of fresh strawberry juice before? If not, it’s not too sweet, but cool and completely refreshing. Take 2 cups of strawberries, 1 cup of water and 5-10 drops of stevia and blend them. You can strain the pulp if you’re not a pulp person, otherwise, serve on the rocks and kick back and relax!

10. Smoothies

Here’s an easy sweet treat to enjoy.   
1/2 cup frozen pineapple
1 cup coconut milk
1/4  inch ginger

Golden Milk Minimalist Baker

11. Golden Milk

Black pepper is said to help when one has consumed a bit too much cannabis. But how do you drink that? Golden milk of course! It's like a chai, but with turmeric. Minimalist Baker has an easy vegan recipe. Try over ice!

12. Nootropics

If you've listened to Joe Rogan's podcast, you'll know brain vitamins are a thing. Genius Brand has a variety of powders to add to ice cold water I highly recommend!
