    Hey everyone! Was recently having a very strong flu and have gone through every medication I knew. Everything and nothing was really helping much. I'd come across to an article yesterday, talking about the facts how cannabis can treat cold and flu. Decided to write here and see if anyone of you has used cannabis while having flu and whether it really helps or not?

    Hi @leelinda Sorry you got kicked around by a cold! One thing i always like is peppermint oil. Its the red stripe on candy canes or dinner mints. Once the red is gone your sore throat treatment is as well. Luckily a bag of a couple hundred dinner mints is only a dollar or two. =) As for the article it makes sense. I cant stop smoking or id be in extreme pain but I can tell you that smoking while having a cold is bad. It hurts if your throat is already irritated. But the relaxing benefits helping me sleep and rest were a good thing. I cant say if there was ever any other benefits. None that i perceived. Will have to keep this in mind and experiment in the future.

    I've used a couple strains to help relieve flu symptoms.
    Remedy, a CBD strain, and Pineapple Kush, a indica leaning hybrid.
    I pack mega-bong with crushed ice and get to it.

    Mostly Indica based strains are your best bet in fighting flu & cold. Don't know about the effectiveness of the hybrid strains.
