The monkeypox virus is a rare viral infection that’s similar to smallpox, but much less dangerous. However, if you are traveling to or living in a country where Monkeypox is present, there are several simple measures you can take to minimize your risk of getting sick. Knowing how you catch it, what the symptoms look like, and how to protect yourself are all key. Plus, did you know CBD can boost your body’s overall health and possibly keep you from getting it and recover faster if you do?
What is Monkeypox & How Do You Get It?
Monkeypox is a virus much like chicken pox. It is spread to humans through contact with infected animals, people, and bodily secretions—on clothes, bedding, or airborne particles from coughing.1 Simply put, keep your distance and avoid close intimate contact with those ill. However, you can get it from infected animal bites as well. Be aware, monkeypox can spread to others from the time symptoms start until the rash has fully healed or symptoms are completely gone. That means no sign of a rash and a new layer of skin has formed, and no more sick symptoms. This process typically lasts 2–4 weeks.
But how do you know if someone has it? The rash will give it away.2 Without being graphic, any body part used in intimacy will rash up, from hands, feet, chest, and face to mouth, genital parts, and bottom areas. Also, the rash changes through several stages like chicken pox. First, painful or itchy boil-like pimples will appear. Second, the soars will scab over. Finally, like any other scab, the scab tissue falls off and new skin tissue forms in its place. However, scientists are still researching if people can have the virus with no symptoms. So play it safe and use safe distance and good hygiene.
3 Fast Ways To Protect Yourself From Monkeypox
In addition to being aware, there are a few steps you can take to actively protect yourself. First, wash your hands often and thoroughly. Second, avoid being near people infected as much as possible. That means staying away until their symptoms are gone. Third, add CBD to your daily routine to build up your body’s overall health, and boost immunity. Nobody likes getting sick, but the easiest way to avoid getting sick is knowing the symptoms and steering clear of those with them.
The Monkeypox Symptoms
Other than the typical pox rash, your body will feel like the flu or even Covid. Because no two people are the same, there are many symptoms and no specific order they will show up. Simply, if you’re not well, be kind to yourself and others. Isolate, wear a mask, and keep it from spreading.
Other symptoms include:
- Swollen lymph nodes
- Muscle aches and backache
- Respiratory symptoms (e.g. sore throat, nasal congestion, or cough)
CBD Can Help

Yes, you’re probably wondering why we threw anxiety in there. For some people, getting sick or having a loved one sick creates anxiety. CBD can help reduce that anxiousness.
Also, while there is no scientific evidence that CBD directly helps reduce fevers, it can ease full-body aches. And as far as fatigue is concerned, when you’re sick, you don’t always get the best sleep, and that’s exactly what you need. CBD is great for sleep. The cannabinoid CBD and or THC can help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer without waking up throughout the night.6 Subscribe and get CBD Tincture Oil today for you and a friend at 20% off.
