A few days later, two vials of The Hangover Cure showed up at my door. I remember reading somewhere that The Hangover Cure was best after a night of drinking beer (I can’t find the site I read it on now…maybe THC updated their site, or, I’m just wrong.), but as one might guess from the nature of my posts, I’m not really a beer drinker.
I decided to use The Hangover Cure (THC) while a friend was in town visiting. I’m in Cincinnati for a few months and don’t know many people here, so any time I can go out here, I go out big. We had already made plans to cab it everywhere on a Tuesday night, so I knew we would be drinking a bit. The night started out with a bottle of Valpolicello between the two of us, then we headed to a local Mexican restaurant (Nada) where we consumed Dos Equis, Red and White Sangria, Mojitos, Caiprihanas, and a mexican spiced punch.
When I got home, the first thing on my mind was going to sleep, but I instead got a glass of water and poured one tube of THC into it. I use a lot of Emergen-C vitamin C packets when I’m feeling like I’m about to get sick, and the consistency and taste of THC reminded me of this. I have also used Emergen-C as a way to rehydrate myself after a night of drinking, but it’s never actually cured my hangover, so I was thinking that night that THC wouldn’t work either.
The next morning, after falling asleep around 3 am, my alarm went off at 9 am and I had to be to my friend’s store by 10 am. I was a little bit tired, but I can honestly say that I didn’t feel sick or hungover. Unless the combination of drinks that I drank that night cancel eachother out so that you don’t have a hangover, I believe that THC worked.

Directions for The Hangover Cure: Mix one tube with 12-16 oz of water. For best results, use before bed after a night of debauchery.
Verdict: Buy. Be smart when drinking, but as we all know, a simple weekday can turn into a crazy night. I’d keep a few vials of THC on hand for those nights when you know you need to be alert and well the next day (think 9 am meetings, family trips, a vacation that you don’t want to sleep through…) but have plans for a big night out the night before.
