IV Hydration: All Your Questions Answered

Plus, we break down the Top 10 IV Hydration Bars in Denver.

By Ben Owens



You may have noticed a new trend of intravenous (IV) clinics popping up in areas near you. These aren’t your standard medical IV’s that you’re accustomed to seeing in hospitals and doctor’s offices. Rather, these clinics offer IV hydration services as a way to biohack your body back to life or increase its potential. Most commonly, these IV hydration treatments are used for hangovers and their associated symptoms of sluggishness, dehydration, headaches, and the rest of those incapacitating, no-fun downsides of having too much fun. As the popularity of these treatments spreads, as do the applications for hydration services. With Denver’s legal cannabis landscape, it’s no surprise that this trend has found its way to the Mile High to help hydrate those thirsty cottonmouths.

What is IV Hydration?

IV hydration, or rehydration, involves injecting fluids into your body through an intravenous line, much like you’ll find in hospitals and medical facilities. The difference here is that these fluids are specifically chosen for certain purposes and usually contain a mixture of water, salts and electrolytes. Think of it like a Gatorade for your veins that instantly enters the bloodstream rather than going through the digestion process like sports drinks and water, making for a quicker, easier way to rehydrate and refuel your body.

What is it used for?

The most common reasons people use an IV Bar are for help with hangovers. Additionally, some seek out IV hydration services for dehydration (duh), help with flu symptoms, overexertion, jet lag, and even food poisoning. Many claim that they get a “glow” for their skin or hair after using these services. These applications lend themselves to more casual uses, including altitude sickness, dehydration, cottonmouth, and overconsumption. Keeping the body hydrated with the fluids it needs is imperative during an instance of overconsumption and is considered to be one of the most common practices when a patient is admitted to a hospital for consuming too much cannabis.

Adding IV Hydration to your Travel Plans

Whether you’re visiting the mile high on vacation or simply planning a day out in Denver, consider adding IV hydration to your pre- or post-event plans. Staying hydrated will make adjusting to the altitude easier  (we’re at 5280’ above sea level even in Denver) and will help with unexpected cottonmouth or jet lag. If you find that you’ve consumed too much cannabis, an IV Bar can be a great way to recuperate and bounce back into action.
