The news of Coronavirus is everywhere, but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warn Americans that the flu is a more immediate danger. With more than 15 million confirmed cases so far, chances are high that you or someone you know will be brought low by influenza this winter. If that happens, Your CBD Store in Keller has what you need! Our water additives and CBD oils come in a variety of flavors so you can add them to your favorite flu remedies.

Symptoms of the Flu

How can you tell if you have the flu or just a regular cold? They have lots of overlapping symptoms, but the flu tends to set in faster, last longer, and be more severe for its duration. Watch out for flu symptoms like a headache, sore throat, muscle aches, extreme fatigue, chills, and nausea or diarrhea. That combination of symptoms is seen more often in flu cases than with colds. The only way to tell for sure if you have the flu is to go to the doctor for a test.

Flu recovery involves getting plenty of rest and staying hydrated. For years, caretakers have offered soothing drinks for flu patients to sip. These drinks were designed to clear sinuses, settle stomachs, and ease the discomfort of sore throats. Here are three popular recipes to make you or your sickly loved ones feel better.

Honey Lemon Tea with CBD

Fans of this drink say it cuts through phlegm and soothes the throat, plus the sweet honey makes it go down easier. We suggest adding a few drops of our water-soluble CBD to your honey-lemon tea. You can choose from unflavored (natural), grape, strawberry limeade, and piña colada. Our drops come in a 30ml bottle with a dropper top in concentrations of 10, 20, and 30mg.

To make honey lemon tea with CBD, you’ll need:

  • 1 tablespoon of freshly-squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 1 tea bag of your choice (optional; some folks prefer plain hot water)
  • 1 dose of water-soluble CBD

Heat your water and add your tea bag (if you used one). Stir in the lemon juice, honey, and CBD. Drink it hot so you can breathe in the steam and warm yourself up if you’re experiencing chills.

CBD-Infused Ginger Tea

Ginger tea has long been used to settle queasy stomachs and fight nausea. Here is a tried-and-true recipe you can infuse with CBD and sip gently if you have nausea or vomiting.

Gather the following:

  • Fresh ginger root, peeled and grated (about 1 inch per cup of tea)
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • ½ lemon, thinly sliced
  • Honey to taste
  • Water-soluble CBD drops

Place the grated ginger root into a cup and add the boiling water. Stir carefully. Then add as many of the lemon slices and as much honey as you like to sweeten it. When it’s cool enough to sip, add in the CBD drops and stir well.

Peppermint Matcha CBD Tea

Peppermint is helpful for cooling the throat, and many people swear by its nausea-fighting effect. Add in some caffeinated matcha and you’ve got a duo that will perk you up when you’re feeling fatigued. Here’s a basic peppermint matcha tea recipe you can make whenever you need a little pick-me-up:

  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 peppermint tea bag
  • 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon matcha powder per cup of water
  • Honey or agave nectar to sweeten
  • Water-soluble CBD drops

Place the peppermint tea bag in your cup and fill the cup with boiling water. Stir in the remaining ingredients and allow the tea to steep until it’s strong. Sip it slowly and you should start to feel better soon.
