Can CBD Oil Help With Lyme Disease?

Updated: Feb 27

CBD may not be able to directly treat or cure Lyme disease, but instead CBD can help treat symptoms from Lyme disease like managing pain issues, inflammation and sleep.

What is Lyme Disease?

Lyme disease is a bacterial infection that is transmitted into humans through bites from ticks. This infection is caused by Borrelia Burgdorferi bacteria.

The symptoms includes:

  • Fever

  • Fatigue

  • Headache

  • Erythema migrans (skin rash)

If Lyme disease goes untreated, the infection can reach joint areas causing massive pain and inflammation. Lyme disease can affect the heart and the nervous system.

It is believed that every year, there may be people infected with lyme disease up to 476,000 cases in the United States alone.

How Using CBD Oil Can Help Lyme Disease?

Traditionally, doctors may prescribe doxycycline, amoxicillin and cefuroxime, but we are here to tell you how CBD can help manage lyme disease’s symptoms.

Chronic Pain:

There has been numerous research that supports the claim that CBD is a good pain relieving agent. CBD interacts with the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) which is responsible for regulating many bodily functions like pain relieving effects and inflammation. Because of this CBD can help boost anti-inflammatory, pain relief and manage neuroprotective pain.

Fatigue and Sleeplessness:

Lyme disease can cause patients to experience poor sleep quality. It can affect the neurotransmitters resulting in insomnia. Not getting enough sleep will result in feeling fatigue, losing appetite, being unable to focus and having memory issues. Not sleeping directly increases stress, anxiety and triggers mental issues. Using CBD can help battle insomnia and regular sleep/wake cycle. When you use CBD like CBD oil it will help your body to calm down and automatically reduce stress and anxiety. Your brain, once calmed down, will send signals to your body to rest. CBD helps you to sleep more soundly and wake up less during the night and when it's time to wake up you will not have to worry about any drowsiness as you would with sleeping pills or relaxants. When you sleep your body will get rejuvenated, plus your energy level will be boosted resulting in better bodily functions and better mental state.

Heart Health:

There have been studies that show that CBD may help with heart arrhythmia and heart health.

But if you are experiencing any heart issues that may or may not be related to lyme disease it is recommended that you contact and consult with your doctor at once.

Why should you use CBD oil for Lyme disease:

  • CBD helps to promote better sleep and treat insomnia

  • CBD boost energy and battle fatigueness

  • CBD alleviates mood and promotes better mental health.

  • CBD has pain relief, anti inflammation and nerve pain agents.

  • CBD has no psychoactive effects unlike THC so you don't have to worry about feeling intoxicated.

  • CBD is safe and not addictive according to the World Health Organization.

  • You don't need a prescription for CBD.

But do keep in mind that CBD may interact with other medications which may result in alteration of medications. CBD could cause you to feel dry mouth, diarrhea, drowsiness or change in appetite.

It is advisable to consult with your doctor first if you are planning to use CBD to help with Lyme.

Remember to always start with low dosage first and then increase the dosage if needed.
