How does CBD help?
Research indicates that CBD stimulates the receptors of the endocannabinoid system, allowing the system to better regulate the immune system.
Evidence indicates that cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2 are involved in the mediation of pain caused by inflammation.
CBD is considered an ideal medication to help Lupus patients cope with the symptoms of the disorder like pain and nausea.
Research into CBD for lupus is desperately needed but current findings do suggest that CBD immunoregulatory, anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects could prove to be beneficial for all autoimmune disorders, including lupus.
