It’s that time of the year. Whether we like it or not, it’s “flu season”. Coughing, fatigue, aches, pains, nausea and vomiting are all miserable – and flu season has been making national news almost daily. So, is there actual hope that CBD may help fight the flu?
Yes. Not only has the National Institutes of Health found CBD to fight some viral infections but it has also been found to be anti-bacterial. Often times, when patients go to the doctor, they will give them an antibiotic just to get the patient out of their office and on to the next patient. If it is a viral infection, antibiotics won’t do anything against it. If it is a bacterial infection, the overuse of these antibiotics causes the infections to become more immune to these treatments. Something that hasn’t been seen much in America is CBD. This means that most bacteria and viruses haven’t seen CBD and provide another angle of attack for these infections.
Dozens of research articles and studies have shown CBD to have anti-inflammatory processes. Now, inflammation isn’t always bad, but too much of it is. If the body (or part of the body) is over inflamed, it can be detrimental to joints, heart health, the digestive system, and lungs. This is when CBD can be used to help combat inflammation. Certain studies have also shown that THC has made the flu symptoms worse in Guinea pigs, so CBD oil is definitely the better option for this particular issue.
As we all know, rest is an important part to recovering from the flu, or any other sickness. As this study shows, CBD can be used to help regulate sleep. Not getting a good night’s sleep can actually harm the body’s ability to fight off infection. Obviously, this would not lead to a faster recovery.
