Marijuana can boost the immune system and reduce pain and inflammation

It’s that time of year again. Hundreds of thousands will visit their physicians in order to get the flu shot in an effort to prevent getting sick, while a comparable amount can’t receive the vaccine due to allergies. Whether you’re looking to combat the symptoms, or keep them from even appearing, marijuana can help.

To fight a sore throat, many turn to honey and lemon. However, Synergy offers cinnamon drops infused with both tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) that will soothe the pain. Mix it with a little honey and cinnamon and add it to a cup of tea for almost instant relief.

If sinus pain is making you feel as though daggers are being stuck into your sinuses or forehead, try Mary’s Medicinals’ Muscle Freeze. When rubbed on the cheekbones and brow, the infused CBD will help to relieve sinus tension and pain. It also helps to break up chest congestion, so rub a little on your chest, as well.

For overall aches and pains, the Manna Molecular transdermal patch might be just the treatment. It will deliver 5mg of cannabis to the bloodstream and its effects will last between 8 and 12 hours. They will allow you to remain active without delivering the high associated with THC.

Having the flu is never fun. It makes it difficult for some to perform even routine tasks and leaves the sufferer devoid of energy. However, these alternatives will help to make the experience a lot less stressful and have you back on your feet in no time.
