CBD For Flu Season
Winter is coming! That means longer nights, colder weather, and endless bottles of NyQuil and bowls of chicken noodle soup. Or does it? Flu season is upon us, but we have a secret weapon in our pockets. 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. Read on to discover how to beat flu season with CBD wellness!
What is CBD?
CBD is the compound naturally found in the cannabis plant. The non-psychoactive cousin to THC, CBD can’t get you high. Instead, when ingested, CBD gets to work on your body’s endocannabinoid system. Our body’s endocannabinoid system is in charge of regulating sleep patterns, appetite and general mood. Our bodies already produce cannabinoids in its regulation of emotion and sleep – ingesting CBD can trigger the release of more.
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 & Your Immune System
CBD is a known anti-inflammatory agent. Inflammation is the body’s natural response to harmful stimuli. Some diseases such as arthritis and Chrons disease cause the body to respond with excess inflammation. Many people who suffer from inflammatory diseases rely on CBD for a naturopathic treatment. In addition to soothing inflammatory symptoms, cannabinoids have been shown to interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system to promote maximum immune function and optimal health.
CBD For Flu Aches & 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. CBD helps calm inflammation, reduce pain and provide instant relief for head colds and body aches.
CBD For Catching Z’s
The best medicine for any cold or flu is sleep. Rest jumpstarts the body’s ability to heal naturally. By calming inflammation, reducing anxiety and soothing chronic pain, CBD helps to promote relaxation and encourage deep sleep.

It’s difficult to see an equitable solution in the Cannabis sector without offering more than 1 busines model.
In this video I give 5 reasons why small business models is the solution.
Simply High Extracts was created in 2016 with the goal of bring a gourmet vegan infused Canna Butter and Extra Light Olive Oil to the legal cannabis market. We have been collaborating with top chefs all over building our brand, while also providing easy 15 min recipes on our website to go along with our products. We sold out catered events and provided cooking demo’s to new cannabis user of all ages and backgrounds.
For the last 6 months we have been striving to acquire licensing to bring our products to legal shops like Euphorium (a black owned dispensary) & Med Men. We are proud to say we have accomplish that goal and will be in legal dispensaries coming September!
This is a big accomplishment for myself and also the black community of LA. I’ve personally seen the effects of harsh scrutiny in LA neighborhoods for cannabis. To see the liberation of this medicinal herb, and see the people oppressed by prohibition capitalized is something that strove me to that goal of becoming licensed and entering the market the first black owned gourmet cannabis cooking extracts brand!
From the owner:
My name is Daniel Olujide George owner of Simply High Extracts. I’m Nigerian/American, born and raised in south central Los Angeles. I started this business when my father passed away from leukemia in 2016. Like most parents he was reluctant to share with me he used to be a cannabis user, in order to show me what is was like to live a life free of influence. I love and appreciate him for doing so. However, it inspired me to create a way to introduce the benefits of cannabis to people like my father and also people suffering from sickness and other ailments, while bringing a creative “do it yourself” approach to the edible industry.
Host and curator ChaVon Butler lightbulb for her video series during a time( losing her mother to pancreatic cancer in 2016) that she needed exactly what she represents, a woman of color and believer of the most high God, Christ, well informed on the medical benefits of cannabis, and an informative resource or community.
The series of conversations amongst women of color opens a healthy and comfortable space for others to share experiences, education, and create representation in the cannabis industry.
“When I started doing research on cannabis and the medicinal benefits, I was so mind blown. I knew that many people of color suffered from the stigma, I knew that it was a thing that we didn’t talk about on this level , I knew that it was shunned upon. I knew that a lot of black men are STILL institutionalized for it. I knew that I needed to be a part of the change.”

IT ALL STARTED WHEN…
I was diagnosed with degenerative joint disease in 2018. I lived in pain everyday. There were days when I couldn’t even get out of bed. As time went on, my physical abilities decreased and so did my health.
I decided that there has to be a better way to life than to constantly popping pills from my doctor and go to my never ending physical therapy appointments. So I started infusing my food with cannabis. This is when when my life started!
Now I am able to elevate my life to the fullest!
Allow me to teach you how to elevate yours!
