Flu season is upon us, and this year is predicted to be especially intense. I’m allergic to the flu vaccine, so I rely on natural methods to boost my immunity. Thankfully, cannabis is a great tool to have in your holistic health toolbox; it works to balance the immune system, reduce inflammation, and relieve pain.
If you’re not feeling well, a good rule of thumb is to get some rest, avoid contact with others, and drink plenty of fluids. There are also loads of cannabis-based wellness options available in Nevada to help you fight this season’s grit.
Follow the remedies below, and you may feel better in snap.
