Autoimmune Disorders

Home >> Autoimmune Disorders

The CB2 receptor is responsible for regulating the function of the immune system cells in the body. The endocannabinoid system plays a crucial role in many autoimmune disorders, but using plant cannabinoids in treating these conditions is not well understood. Both naturally derived and synthetic cannabinoids demonstrate anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive activity that is of interest in treating autoimmune disorders, including multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, asthma, and septic shock.

Autoimmune disorders are conditions where the immune response wrongly targets healthy tissues.

We have provide supportive and collaborative care for many autoimmune conditions such as:

  • Hasimoto’s Disease
  • Graves Disease
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Rheumatoid
  • Psorias
  • Eczema
  • Vitiligo
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Lupus
  • Diabetes
  • Lyme Disease
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Celiac, Crohn’s, Ulcerative Colitis, Colitis)

These conditions can sometimes be treated through immunosuppression. Medicinal cannabis is effective in treating many autoimmune disorders, and promising research is ongoing. Cannabinoids in cannabis lower the production of the inflammatory protein interleukin-10.                                                                                                                                                                                

Molecules to target autoimmune disorders

For symptomatic relief of pain, use high THC strains with limonene and myrcene. As already discussed, terpenes with anti-inflammatory properties are beta myrcene, beta-Caryophyllene, pinene, borneol, 1,8- cineole, and delta-3-carene.

Methods of ingestion

Swallowed and sublingual cannabinoids effectively relieve pain from autoimmune disorders, including AIDS and rheumatoid arthritis. In addition, vaporization is often quite effective for symptomatic relief.

Also, for anti-inflammatory effects, medicate with high CBD and THCV varieties of cannabis.
