CBD Tea for Flu Season

The Flu has been particulary rough this season. Many of us reach toward endless bottles of NyQuil and bowls of chicken soup. We have a great option. CBD! While cannabidiol, also known as CBD, can’t cure the flu or the common cold, it can help boost your immune system and make those flu symptoms a lot more bearable. 
Our body’s attempt to fight cold and flu viruses automatically causes inflammation in the throat, sinuses, nose, and lungs. The cannabinoids and terpenes found in CBD may help drive down inflammation in these areas, and therefore relieve symptoms like a runny or congested nose.

CBD for Flu Aches and Pains

Millions of people living with chronic pain (or suffering from the aches and pains associated with the flu) turn to CBD as an alternative to harsh, potentially-damaging pharmaceutical drugs. CBD is a natural analgesic. It has been shown to inhibit the body’s absorption of anandamide, a compound associated with pain regulation. 

What does CBD do?

In addition to triggering the release of cannabinoids, CBD also works with the nervous system to intercept the transmission of pain signals in the body. It also influences the release of specific hormones and enzymes that can aid in digestive health and cognitive function.

CBD and Turmeric

Our CBD Turmeric teas,  Golden Chai Turmeric and Turmeric Golden Milk CBD Instant teas have become beyond popular this year!

Combining turmeric’s powerful anti-inflammatory action with CBD and black pepper could boost your fight against inflammation, boost your immunity, digestion and more.

Recently, science has began to back up what Indians have known for a long time. Turmeric really does contain compounds with medicinal properties.

These compounds are called curcuminoids, the most important of which is Curcumin.

Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant.

However, the curcumin content of turmeric is not that high. It’s around 3%, by weight so it’s very important to consume black pepper with Turmeric which contains piperine, a natural substance that enhances the absorption of curcumin by 2,000%.  Both of our CBD Turmeric teas contain piperine.

Curcumin is also fat soluble, so it may be a good idea to drink your tea with a  milk of your choice.
