When it comes to health and wellness, the lungs might not be the first thing that pops into your head. But our lungs don't just keep our bodies moving—they filter and balance our immune system and can be the key to tapping into some mental and physical calm. Keeping these bad boys supported, especially for us canna-consumers, means we get to keep rocking our voices, LOL-ing without a care, and moving with better circulation, a strong heart, and a focused mind. If you've been dealing with a persistent cough, shortness of breath, or just some irritation, it's your lungs asking for a bit of love. Time to show 'em some TLC!
Hydrate Dry and Tight Lungs
Plantain Leaf: Can help reduce the irritation of lung tissues that cause discomfort & can ease irritation & dryness or dampness, while also helping to dry, tighten, and tone the mucus lining.
Wild Cherry Bark: Works as a powerful antitussive (cough suppressant) working well in dry, hacking coughs that are accompanied by spasms. Can also benefit wet coughs due to its ability to dry mucus and increase expectoration, helping to open the airways.
Cumin: Creates an antihistamine effect in the lungs which helps to relax the trachea and improve lung function.
Nattokinase: It can shrink blockage-causing nasal polyps and thin mucus, improving airflow while reducing discomfort. Can also protect against inflammation and oxidative stress.
Horehound Herb: It works as an expectorant, meaning it helps to loosen bronchial secretions and eliminate mucus.
Elecampane Root: It works as an expectorant to loosen phlegm so it can be coughed up more easily and contains antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Mint: The menthol in mint works as a decongestant, shrinking swollen membranes, making it easier to breathe, and also helps loosen mucus that has collected in the lungs.
Thyme: Works as an expectorant to eliminate mucus and also works as a spasmolytic which means it can help with coughing fits and help to calm the respiratory muscles, as well as being antibacterial and anti-fungal!
Ginger: Contains anti-inflammatory qualities, and causes bronchodilation in asthmatic patients which makes breathing easier. Ginger also breaks down thick mucus and helps to expel it out of the lungs.
Heal and Restore
Mullein: It helps to loosen mucus, calm inflammation, contains antioxidants to protect the cells from damage, and fights germs.
Pleurisy root: This can assist in draining excess fluid in the lungs and loosening phlegm, making it easier to breathe. Can also help reduce swelling of the lining of the lungs and support overall lung health. Relaxes the airways which helps ease the urge to cough.
Oregano: Exhibits anti-inflammatory and antioxidative effects & antimicrobial activity on lung pathogens to help with congestion and improve airflow. Contains compounds like carvacrol and terpenes that help cleanse the lungs
Cinnamon: Due to its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antifungal, and expectorant properties, cinnamon is a good ally in fighting respiratory infections and helping to cleanse the lungs.
Serrapeptase: It may increase the clearance of mucus and reduce inflammation in the lungs. In addition to enhancing the mechanical effects of mucus, proteases may enable special protective factors within mucus to more effectively neutralize invading organisms.
Gumweed: It helps relax the airways and opens them up making it easier to breathe. It is an excellent expectorant and helps break up mucus. Also contains antibacterial and antifungal properties.
Protect and Repair
Lungwort: It helps to clear the airways and expel the build-up of mucus out of the lungs and is believed to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
Elecampane root: It works as an expectorant to loosen phlegm so it can be coughed up more easily and contains antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Marshmallow Root: Can offer a protective, antioxidant-rich film that coats inflamed mucosa which provides faster symptom relief by soothing irritation and helping to relieve coughs by calming the respiratory system.
Osha Root: It helps clear mucus by increasing expectoration. Also has a bronchodilating effect which increases oxygen utilization and blood flow to the lungs, helping us take deeper breaths. Can also soothe and numb irritated tissue in the throat.
