With cold season in full effect, we’re all looking for ways to ease the symptoms of cold and flu – general discomfort, trouble sleeping, sore and achy muscles. When used the right way, cannabis offers great relief from symptoms and helps minimize the need for over-the-counter pain relievers and sleep aids. Here are our top suggestions.
I feel bad, overall.
General feelings of ickiness are hard to combat. For this we recommend a nice dose of CBD. It won’t make you sleepy – but it should make your body feel better. Less aches and pains. We use this each morning when sick, and throughout the day to fend off feeling bad.
I can’t sleep.
Tossing and turning because you’re uncomfortable, or maybe your sleep cycle has been disrupted by being sick? A nice dose of THC before bed will keep you sound asleep.
Try this – CANNABIS TEAS
My body is achy.
If you’re able to take a bath, adding cannabis infused epsom salt will soothe your body. Giving yourself a rub down with a cannabis topical a few times during the day and before bed will help with achy muscles.
Another note –
We generally recommend tinctures, edibles, and topicals over smoking and vaping while battling cold & flu. Better to treat the throat and nasal passages tenderly.
We hope this eases your discomfort!
