The ONLY thing I dislike about getting lifted.
Take it slow, drink quality water. If you feel like you need to drink its because you are probably dehydrated
No matter how much precaution I take (not taking too hot of hits, drinking lots of water) mine still gets bad enough to render my mouth useless. I think some people are just more prone to it. My roommates never get it as often or as badly as I do.
Getting in the habit of keeping a bottle of water at my side at all times is the only defense I have found.
I'd also note I am probably more dehydrated on a daily basis due to medications, so that might be the root of it.
I used to get it bad. Now I don't. I do drink around 80 ounces of water a day and think that's how I solved the problem for me. I would love to drink smart water everyday but I don't have $5 to spend on water a day.
I find bigger bongs get me less cottonmouth. More time for the smoke to cool is more important than diffusion for this problem IMO. Also I can't vape everyday due to the fact it dries me out so much as well. I believe that is because with vaping we tend to take 3-5 hits per bowl, versus with smoking just one snap or inhale. Try to take as little hits as possible out of a bigger piece and that might help. Also try warm water when vaping.
Forgot to add, I think it might affect it also if you hold your vapor in your mouth first, as if smoking a joint, compared to bringing it directly into your lungs.
This is all just guessing though
Edit: Don't forget strain can make quite a difference as well.
Keep a small bowl of watermelon laying around. Most melons will work, but nothing like watermelon for some drymouth. That's one thing I can dig about GMO's - year round produce.
Cannabis acts as an expectorant, and dry mouth is not an uncommon side effect of expectorants. This can be made worse by being dehydrated. Best solution, IMO, is to have some water at hand to sip.
I think globalization is more responsible for that.
I just know that I'm fairly young, and can remember not being able to find a pretty wide variety of fruits at certain points in the year, and now they're always available, and I it.
Every good thing has its consequences....
Swish your mouth out with Biotene.
Suck on a piece of hard candy.
Hydrogen Dioxide works well. The African bushmen put small pebbles in their mouths and suck on them. You could try that too.
I missed this thread until now, not sure how...
Anyway, lwien is right. Try Biotene. It really does work.
I am ALWAYS right, Vicki........... ALWAYS.
Great, I'm going to look in Walmart for it.
I hope they carry it.
I think you're mistaken. It's me that is always right.
I'm at a loss.
The best way to avoid cottonmouth IME is just to drink plenty of that sweet dihydrogen monoxide ()
I always have a bottle of water with me for a sesh now, and aside from just generally drinking it, I take a small sip after every hit.
I started doing this more after I was playing around with my LSV using my mouth as a water chamber (mouth-bong FTW) and since I was swallowing the mouthful after each hit, I was inadvertently drinking more during a sesh.
If all else fails, that biotene stuff works wonders too
What a great idea! at least with vapes that won't be harmed by a little water.
Are you using any other medication? I notice with my eye drops and vaping I get insane cotton mouth
Ok I opened this thread thinking someone found a way to rid ones self of cottonmouth. so far all i read was what you drink while vaping and dehydration. ya want to avoid dry mouth dont use what you use in the vape. I know then we wouldnt vape but lets face it. cannabis causes cottonmouth keep the water handy and all is good if you run out and are coutchlocked you gonna get cottonmouth.
Larry had a good suggestion.
ok which one was Larry?
