Cannabis for Night Sweats and Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis)

Sweating at night is normal. However, if you are sweating so much that your clothing and sheets are soaking wet and you are waking up due to the sweating, it is time to speak to a doctor. This is especially the case if you’re suffering from weight loss and/or a fever as well.

One common side-effect of cannabis detox is night sweats. This is because cannabis actually cools the body down by lowering your body temperature. This is because cannabinoids interact with the vanilloid receptor, TRPV1, which regulates body temperature. Those who utilize cannabis may sweat less at night.
