Cannabis for Lupus

Lupus is an autoimmune condition where your body’s immune system attacks your own tissues and organs, including joints, skin, kidney, bladder, brain, heart and lungs. Symptoms include joint pain, extreme tiredness and rashes on the face. It is a chronic condition that can cause severe impairment of one’s quality of life. Typical treatments include anti-inflammatory drugs like steroids.

Cannabis and cannabinoids have shown plenty of promise for the treatment of various autoimmune conditions, including lupus. This is because cannabinoids can help reduce inflammation and calm abnormal immune responses associated with lupus and other autoimmune diseases.
