CBD is touted as a “miracle treatment” for its ability to treat multiple conditions. Conventional medicine is specially created to treat specific kinds of symptoms but a single strain of medical marijuana with high contents of CBD can treat a range of conditions with regular use.

In the last couple of years, Lyme disease has been on the rise in the USA as Ixodes or black-legged ticks become more prominent in various parts of the country. A bacterial species named Borrelia burgdorferi causes asymptomatic infection in the water channels, where they infect the mammals that drink from them. As a result, the ticks that feed off the mammals get infected and eventually transmit the infection on to humans through a bite.

Recent research has shown that medical marijuana can provide relief from some of the symptoms of Lyme disease.

Let’s take a look at some of the symptoms of Lyme disease:

Symptoms of Lyme disease

Upon contracting the disease, about 80% of individuals infected with it develop a rash.

When the disease is first contracted, the initial symptoms often look like that of the flu, which is why Lyme disease often remains undiagnosed. Since the ticks that infect humans are so small, the bites go unnoticed.

The first symptoms of Lyme disease include:

  • Chills
  • Fatigue
  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Muscle achesand pain
  • Swollen lymph nodes.

With time the symptoms of Lyme disease progress and become more serious. If Lyme disease goes undetected, symptoms are likely to get worse before they get better. Some advanced symptoms of Lyme disease include:

  • Arthritis
  • Chest pain
  • Extreme headaches
  • Flu-like symptoms that are accompanied by pain
  • Heart palpitations
  • Mental confusion
  • Numbness or weakness in the arms and legs
  • Severe fatigue
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Vertigo
  • Vision changes

The Effects of CBD on Lyme Disease

Traditional doctors treat Lyme disease by prescribing medication that  aren’t always effective in treating Lyme disease, so patients turn to alternative options.

Medical marijuana strains with high levels of CBD can reduce some of the major symptoms of Lyme disease such as nausea, inflammation in joints and pain relief. In some cases, it can completely eliminate the need and dependence of pain killers. In addition to alleviating some of the symptoms, medical marijuana also regulates the nervous and immune system.

Indica, Sativa and CBD hemp extract have all proven to help people suffering from Lyme disease. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with the infection, find a reliable, creditable CBD shop near you.

I’m Nancy and no, I didn’t always look like I do in that picture on the right. My foray into health and fitness began as a brace-faced, 16 year-old who was too afraid to wear a two-piece at the beach because I felt my body paled in comparison to my much more toned friends.
