The antibiotics found in cannabis can help prevent, and cure, the flu

Don’t let the flu stop you from being able to keep running. While flu vaccinations have been offered for years, they often do little to actually help prevent someone from catching the virus. This is changing, though, thanks to the antibiotic and healing properties found in cannabis. Whether looking to prevent the flu, or treat its symptoms, cannabis could be the best solution.

Cannabinoids and terpenes found in cannabis have been positively identified as carrying antibiotic and anti-inflammatory properties that could be useful in building up the immune system and preventing the flu. They are able to alter the body’s immune system to thwart the onset of viruses and can decrease viral replication.

With the increased attention given to cannabis over the past decade or so, cannabis is now available in a variety of forms to make their consumption easier. There are mouth drops, edibles, beverages, tinctures and more that can help reduce coughing and congestion, and get rid of virtually any sign of the flu quicker than over-the-counter medicines.

One product is the line of herbal drink mixes made by Atlas. They contain 10mg of cannabidiol (CBD) and 5mg of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – to help with the pain – and include a number of ingredients to get you back on your feet quicker.

There are also CBD-infused honeys, cinnamon CBD sprays and tinctures, depending on your preferred method. They all are perfect for finding relief from the flu, as well as other aches and pains, and have the added benefit of being all-natural – no lab-created chemicals that can cause adverse reactions.
