The fact is, CBD is not an FDA cure or treatment for Lyme disease. CBD is only FDA approved for the treatment of a rare form of Epilepsy in the drug Epidiolex. However, CBD might be able to help ease some Lyme disease symptoms.
Lyme disease is a bacterial infection (Borrelia Burgdorferi) which is passed from the tick bite of a deer tick. Typically it takes 24 to 36 hours for the tick to infect their human host. In the early stages the first symptoms will be a red bulls eye rash. The bacteria may have other negative side effects on the whole body including the immune system and the nervous system. Lyme Disease patients are not contagious, and can not spread the lyme borreliosis to other humans or pets.
Lyme Disease is more prevalent in the Spring and Summer months, when people are outside more, especially if they visit wooded areas, where deer tend to live. The disease is more common in the North East and Atlantic Coastline areas of the United States.
Lyme patients may experience some or all of the following symptoms:
If left untreated, Lyme Disease can cause heart problems, facial paralysis, hearing loss, and short term memory loss. This is why it is so important to seek medical advice immediately if you suspect you may have Lyme disease.
If the tick is still adhered to the skin, it should be removed carefully, as to not break it apart, and immediately. The best way to treat Lyme Disease is with antibiotic treatment. These antibiotics may be administered orally or intravenously, and the course of therapy can last 2 to 4 weeks. Most Lyme Disease sufferers respond well to this treatment however 10% to 20% develop post-treatment lyme disease syndrome. This for of chronic Lyme Disease causes the patient to continue to suffer from the Lyme symptoms even after they have received antibiotic therapy.
CBD should only be started with your Doctor's approval, and after the course of antibiotics, as CBD may interfere with the antibiotic absorption. CBD has anti-inflammatory properties, which may help with reducing the inflammation that is causing pain. Some other benefits of CBD are the impact on mood and anxiety. CBD may help promote a calmer mood and disposition. Finally, CBD may help with sleep issues.
CBD products are not an alternative treatment option for the disease, but should be considered only as a possible supplement for relief severe symptoms.
Hopefully in the future there will be more clinical trials, scientific studies, and CBD research to identify conclusive effects of CBD on Lyme Disease.
If your health care provider has cleared and approved you to try CBD it is important that you choose quality products. The best way to identify quality products is to look for a CoA or Third Party lab testing result, which will ensure potency and purity.
Positive effects from the use of CBD also depend on taking the correct amount. There are no official dosing guidelines, but on average most people take 25mg of CBD daily. However, based on weight, metabolism, severity of issue, and sensitivity levels you may require more or less.
There are three legal types of CBD available on the market today.
