Could CBD be beneficial for Lyme disease?

CBD info

Scientists are very focused on CBD today. Both hemp and marijuana have been practically outside the law for the last century, depriving modern medicine of investigating their properties. Now that the legislation is changing, science is determined to make up for lost time. A potential new application revolves around the recovery of patients from Lyme disease, so we’ll take a look at this topic.

QWHAT IS THE ANDDISEASE OF LAND I

To begin with, let’s see what this ailment consists of. Lyme borreliosis is a tick-borne infection in the US and Europe. In Europe, ticks transmit the Borrelia Afzelli and Borrelia Garinii bacteria, which cause ticks. It is not a contagious disease, but there is a risk on walks in the woods or in areas of tall grass, especially if shorts are worn.

The thing with Lyme disease is that it is easily treatable if caught early. So if you suspect that you might have been a victim of a tick in the last month, it’s best to get tested and start antibiotic treatment if necessary. The thing is, it’s not always easy to tell if you’ve been bitten, so many cases go undetected because patients believe their symptoms are due to other causes. The main early indicator of Lyme disease is a rash around the bite site.

If left untreated for several weeks, Lyme borreliosis can cause an infected person to develop heart problems, facial paralysis, meningitis, confusion, peripheral neuropathy, as well as painful and swollen joints. It can also cause permanent arthritis.

C.HOW THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM COULD ACT

One theory about this problem is that the endocannabinoid system could play a role in it. There are people who get stung and recover on their own, without any treatment. They are believed to be those who do not have a latent problem with their immune system, in which the endocannabinoid system plays an important role.

ANDTHE USE OF CBD FOR THE ANDDISEASE OF LAND I

CBD is considered, in theory, as a useful supplement for those who suffer from this disease in various ways.

Firstly, CBD is known to have antibacterial properties, so it could be effective in helping to combat it. Secondly, the most hopeful thing is that CBD has been shown to help alleviate pain associated with peripheral neuropathy. Finally, CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system and could restore its balance if there is a deficiency, in turn boosting the immune system.

ANTIBACTERIAL

Unfortunately, there isn’t much clinical research on this, so it should be taken as a hypothesis, with a dose of skepticism. However, it is something that is expected to be analyzed in much more depth, so time will tell if that potential really exists!
