CBD For Flu Season

Winter is coming! That means longer nights, colder weather, and endless bottles of NyQuil and bowls of chicken noodle soup. Or does it? Flu season is upon us, but we have a secret weapon in our pockets. CBD! While cannabidiol, also known as CBD, can’t cure the flu or the common cold, it can help boost your immune system and make those flu symptoms a lot more bearable. Read on to discover how to beat flu season with CBD wellness!

What is CBD?

CBD is the compound naturally found in the cannabis plant. The non-psychoactive cousin to THC, CBD can’t get you high. Instead, when ingested, CBD gets to work on your body’s endocannabinoid system. Our body’s endocannabinoid system is in charge of regulating sleep patterns, appetite and general mood. Our bodies already produce cannabinoids in its regulation of emotion and sleep – ingesting CBD can trigger the release of more.

What does CBD do?

In addition to triggering the release of cannabinoids, CBD also works with the nervous system to intercept the transmission of pain signals in the body. It also influences the release of specific hormones and enzymes that can aid in digestive health and cognitive function.

CBD & Your Immune System

CBD is a known anti-inflammatory agent. Inflammation is the body’s natural response to harmful stimuli. Some diseases such as arthritis and Chrons disease cause the body to respond with excess inflammation. Many people who suffer from inflammatory diseases rely on CBD for a naturopathic treatment. In addition to soothing inflammatory symptoms, cannabinoids have been shown to interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system to promote maximum immune function and optimal health.

CBD For Flu Aches & Pains

Millions of people living with chronic pain (or suffering from the aches and pains associated with the flu) turn to CBD as an alternative to harsh, potentially-damaging pharmaceutical drugs. CBD is a natural analgesic. It has been shown to inhibit the body’s absorption of anandamide, a compound associated with pain regulation. CBD helps calm inflammation, reduce pain and provide instant relief for head colds and body aches.

CBD For Catching Z’s

The best medicine for any cold or flu is sleep. Rest jumpstarts the body’s ability to heal naturally. By calming inflammation, reducing anxiety and soothing chronic pain, CBD helps to promote relaxation and encourage deep sleep.
