Cannabis for Lyme Disease

The word “cannabis” evokes strong emotions for people.

Some think marijuana, smoking pot, drug addicts… while others see a medical healing modality that has been shown in some studies to actively cure certain forms of cancer.

Cannabis is just the botanical name of a plant and like every other plant there are many varieties.

Hemp is a type of cannabis but it does not have as much CBD (cannabidoil – the active chemical in cannabis that has the healing benefits)

Many people say they want to try the product but they don’t want to “get high.” After all, we are all fighting brain fog, why would we want to purposefully take something that makes us even foggier?

The answer is to find CBD oil without THC. But you must be careful with most hemp oil on the market the oil is a commercial sludge without a consistent level of CBD if any at all (you get what you pay for with CBD oil). I offer two companies that use European or American plants organically grown and carefully regulated which is why it is expensive.

Cannabis is effective at killing bacteria, viruses, and fungus. All 5 major cannabinoids (THC, CBD, CBN, CBG, and CBC) has been shown to kill MRSA, known as the “flesh eating virus.” Less studied cannabinoids such as 8-hydroxycannabinol have potent antibacterial properties, and single extracts may provide new targets to kill the bacteria that causes Lyme disease.

Cannabis may also be effective at treating the later stage symptoms of Lyme disease. Cannabis can help reduce pain, spams, headaches and nausea. Dr. Sanjay Gupta stated that cannabis is one of the safest and effective treatments for peripheral neuropathy, a crippling symptom most Lymies (patients with Lyme disease) suffer from. Many Lymies take opiate pain medication to deal with their pain, which can be ineffective, addictive, and can even end in overdose. Every 19 minutes a patient dies in the United States from prescription drug overdose.

Initial treatment with antibiotics for Lyme disease can damage your gastrointestinal (GI) system as well as kill all the healthy bacteria in your system, leaving your body open to fungal and bacterial infections. Painkillers can also damage the lining of your GI tract, which is lined with cells containing CB1 receptors. Eating cannabis or taking cannabis oil can stimulate these CB1 receptors to repair the GI tract and reduce unwanted symptoms such as stomach pain, food sensitivity and diarrhea.

According to the medical/manufacturing company Rimidya,  In most palliative applications, there is little likelihood that consuming medical cannabis will make you high. The psychoactive agent in cannabis is THC. The other primary agent in cannabis is CBD. CBD actively works to counteract the psychoactive effects of THC. Most cannabis that is produced for recreational use, as one would expect, is high in THC and low in CBD. Medical cannabis, on the other hand, with the exception of special illnesses like breast cancer, is in the main much lower in THC and much higher in CBD.

A typical “pot smoker” intent on getting high will use a strain of cannabis that is 50-60% THC, and will consume between 10 and 30 mg. of THC per “reefer.” If they consume two or three reefers a day, they are consuming between 20 and 90 mg of THC a day.

In thel medical cannabis formulations offered here you can select the percentage of CBD oil but there is no THC present. A formula meant for a typical neuro-muscular ailment or for pain management, a person will receive between 1.5 and 5.5 mg of cannabis, of which at the high end only 40% will be THC and at the low end 8-10%.

That means that the typical consumer of medical cannabis described above, with the exception of special ailments like breast cancer which benefit from high THC concentrations, consuming such doses three times a day will consume between 0.5 mg and 6.6 mg. of THC a day, with a typical average running about 3 mg. a day, a goodly portion of which is counteracted by the high CBD content in medical cannabis. For more serious ailments, patients may be given 10 mg a day, but again, the CBD helps counteract the effects of the THC.

THC is available through medical marijuana by prescription only unless you live in a state where it is legal. I any case, for Lyme disease, it would not be recommended to have a content of THC above 5% and certainly not 10%, but you can get all the wonderful benefits from high quality organic hemp CBD oil below or 18% with Elixinol here: 18% CBD Oil

.A recent article published soon after the release of the documentary (see below) wrote the following:

“Dozens of major studies have been published in the last few years that indicate that the chemicals in cannabis in the lab and in animals have a significant effect on fighting almost all major cancers, including brain, breast, prostate, lung, thyroid, colon, skin, pituitary, melanoma and leukemia cancers. They do this by promoting the death of cancer cells that have forgotten how to die, as well as a reduction in their crucial blood supply, while leaving healthy cells untouched.

But why, you may wonder, would cannabis have any effect on cancer? The answer can be explained in one word – endocannabinoids. Amazing as it sounds we’re all born with a form of cannabis already in our bodies. It’s called the Endocannabinoid System. The Endocannabinoid System, or ECS, influences multiple physiological processes. This intricate system modulates energy intake as well as nutrient transport, metabolism and storage.

A completely natural collection of compounds, endocannabinoids are our body’s own form of marijuana and are involved in most of our cells and structures. They control a variety of functions in the nervous system, heart, reproductive and immune systems. Endocannabinoid messengers help the cells communicate. Typically they protect our good cells while killing the bad ones like cancer cells.

In all animals the nervous system is made of the same components – large numbers of nerve cells carrying electrical signals. And wherever the cells meet these signals are passed to a receptor in the next cell by a chemical messenger called a neurotransmitter. Inside the brain there are different types of neurotransmitters including dopamine and serotonin. All animals from rodents to fish, to elephants, to humans have inherited this basic structure, but hundreds of millions of years ago some primitive invertebrates evolved an innovation to this system.

What happened was that nervous system acquired a new chemical related in structure to the chemical found in cannabis. Because of this similarity these new signals came to be known as cannabinoids. It was inevitable that eventually cannabis would meet its perfect partner – us.”
