CBD and Your Immune System: Staying Healthy During the COVID-19 Pandemic
No matter where you go, what you’re reading, or who you’re talking to right now, there’s one subject that’s bound to come up: the global COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic. And while these are undeniably nerve-wracking times that are frightening for all and life-threatening for some, it holds as true with this as with anything else: the only way out is to get through it together. At Fairwinds, we wanted to make it clear that we are not only taking steps within our own company and community to combat this virus, but that there’s a potentially invaluable opportunity here to boost your immune system and reduce stress through the use of CBD, thereby helping your body to fight off a COVID-19 infection.
CBD has been clinically proven to aid the human immune system through multiple mechanisms1. Its non-intoxicating effects add to its capability to help your body stay healthy while keeping a clear mind! Since the immunocompromised are among the most affected by this new pandemic, it’s our hope that sharing this awareness can help people find potential new ways to stay as well as possible.
How Can CBD Help?
When looking for a CBD oil to help assist with immune system or stress responses, there are a few tips to keep in mind. Be sure that the products you’re looking at are made using hemp grown with no pesticides; you can check for third-party testing to confirm this. It’s also helpful to look for products that are terpene-fortified, meaning they will have additional immune-boosting properties! Lastly, the inclusion of other herbal extracts and/or essential oils can also help to boost the effects of CBD. Herbs like ginger, coriander, and many others have been shown to help keep the immune system functioning at its best.
In addition to helping keep your immune system functioning at its best, it’s important to know about the impact that stress can have on our health and wellness. Our Release tincture is specifically formulated to help reduce stress and keep your mental health in just as good of shape as your physical wellbeing. Fairwinds always takes steps to include herbal extracts that boost the desired effect of a product, and it’s our promise to you that we’ll never cut corners or provide a product that isn’t up to our high standards.

Lastly, we’re happy to share we’re offering free shipping on all orders right now. We truly believe that through education, conversation, and the science of whole-body wellness, this COVID-19 outbreak can help to bring people together instead of pushing them apart.
Wishing you health and happiness, from the entire Fairwinds team.
