Hemp oil sore throat relief

hemp[4] I went to bed with a little upper chest congestion and the vague feeling I was coming down with a cold.

I awoke about 2:30 a.m. with the most painful sore throat I can remember, the result of sinus or post nasal drainage. I gave it a couple of shots of Cepacol throat spray and two aspirin and managed to get back to sleep, but it was even worse when I woke up again at 6:30.

Remembering claims that hemp oil alleviates pain and reduces swelling – my throat was so swollen that it felt like I was being choked and it was hard to speak – I padded out to the kitchen, got the hemp oil bottle out of the refrigerator and gargled and swallowed a big slug of the stuff.

The pain was gone inside of 20 minutes and now – about two hours later – the swelling has receded.

Would I have had the same results with olive oil coating my throat and protecting the tissues from the irritation of drainage? Maybe, but I think this goes beyond simple protective coating.

All I know is that I was ready to take my wife’s advice and report for morning sick call at our doctor’s office to get a cortisone shot to reduce the swelling and now I’m almost completely recovered.
