Whether a person should take CBD when sick is a good question, whether contemplating taking it yourself or giving it to someone as a home remedy during a period of illness. Bear in mind, the FDA has not approved the use of CBD for any illnesses other than two forms of epilepsy for which it is prescribed - so please do not take this discussion as medical advice and see your doctor if you are sick :) First of all, it’s well known that CBD can help to reduce both inflammation and stress and anxiety, indirectly boosting your immune system. Therefore, CBD could potentially help with speedier recovery for certain illnesses. CBD has been known to help with headaches and migraines (see our YouTube channel for more details on that topic). There is also some evidence that CBD has some very beneficial properties when it comes to certain ailments, but also may have some potential downsides that you need to be aware of as well.
