Lyme Disease and CBD

Lyme Disease: You might only think about it during the spring/tick season when you venture out to the field or woods, but as many as 500,000 Americans suffer its effects each day with joint pain, headaches, sleep issues and heart problems. While Cannabis cannot cure Lyme disease, research shows it can significantly aid in alleviating some debilitating symptoms. Recent studies involving treatment of Lyme disease with CBD, CBG, or CBD with THC, showed a significant reduction of inflammation and pain experienced; without the side effects of typical drugs. Your amazing endocannabinoid system and its receptors keep homeostasis (balance) in your body by modulating the immune system and reducing inflammation. 

As always, consult with your health care professional before beginning a new supplement.
