Cannabis products are renowned across the world for their ability to treat countless severe diseases and ailments. From Alzheimer’s disease to cancer and epilepsy to MS, medical marijuana has long been used to treat conditions that have no known cure and resist even the strongest pain medications. However, holistic medicine can also help you when it comes to simple everyday nuisances such as the cold or flu. 

Avoid Pharmaceuticals

Although common colds and cases of the flu are rarely serious, they are often incredibly annoying due to their unpleasant symptoms, their ability to be contracted more than once, and their inability to be cured. Although some medications offer to temporarily relieve symptoms such as congestion or a runny nose, there are few options that provide true relief, and even fewer still that don’t require taking pharmaceuticals. With all-natural holistic healing products from Cornerstone Wellness, you can help defend yourself against the flu and relieve any existing cold symptoms without the need for artificial pharmaceutical drugs. 

Cannabis & Inflammation

Cannabis is well-loved for its anti-inflammatory effects on the body. Cannabinoids like THC, CBD, CBG, and CBC can all help soothe inflammation throughout the body, relieving pain and flu symptoms. Some of the terpenes in cannabis have anti-inflammatory properties as well, further driving down inflammation if the right strains are used. Our body becomes inflamed as it tries to battle a cold or flu virus, which is ultimately what causes most symptoms such as a sore throat, congestion, coughing, sneezing, and fever. By fighting inflammation with Cornerstone cannabis products, your symptoms will, therefore, be lessened. 

Cannabis & Flu Pains

In addition to soothing inflammatory responses, cannabis has also been shown to significantly reduce physical pain. Millions of people living with chronic pain trust medical marijuana to effectively relieve that pain without the harmful side effects of pharmaceutical drugs. Those suffering from flu aches and pains can similarly experience physical pain relief through the power of CBD products. CBD’s natural analgesic properties inhibit the body’s absorption of anandamide, which relieves pain in turn. By calming inflammation, boosting immunity, and relieving aches and pains, CBD is a powerful tool in relieving the many symptoms of the flu. 

As flu season rapidly approaches, there are many advertised solutions for avoiding the flu or relieving its symptoms. However, there are very few all-natural solutions that are both safe and effective. Here at Cornerstone Wellness, we boast a wide range of products that can help you get through the flu season unscathed. In addition to our CBD product selection, we also recommend our Host Defense line for boosting immunity and fighting viruses.
