Lyme Disease, Autoimmune Diseases

Could Cannabis be the Cure for Lyme Disease?

Lyme disease is caused by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi and is transmitted to humans through the bite of infected black-legged ticks. Typical symptoms include fever, headache, fatigue, and a characteristic skin rash called erythema migrans.

“In laboratory experiments, CBD cannabis oil has been proven to kill spirochetes. Borrelia burgdorferi is a spirochete and the organism that is responsible for causing all of the body wide issues associated with Lyme Disease.  The spirochetes can get into every organ in the body and evade the immune system.  They can even get into the central nervous system where they can begin to wreak havoc on the spinal cord nerves and the brain.  But, cannabindoids, like CBD and THC (tetrahydrocannabidiol), are able to cross the blood brain barrier, so by ingesting CBD-enriched cannabis oil, an individual has at least somewhat of a defense against the spirochetes acquired from ticks.” To read full Marijuana Doctors article click here
