Today, we continue the conversation about cannabis and autoimmune diseases. Just like Rheumatoid Arthritis and Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease. Lupus is an inflammatory disease caused when the immune system attacks its own tissues, and it can affect any part of the body. Common symptoms of lupus include joint pain, fatigue, rashes, and fever.
Lupus can be difficult to diagnose because it often resembles other conditions. There is no cure for lupus, but treatments can help improve quality of life by controlling symptoms and minimizing flare-ups. This begins with lifestyle changes, such as protecting yourself from the sun and eating a healthy diet. Other ways to manage the disease include taking medications, such as anti-inflammatories and steroids.

Learn how CBD products can be an alternative treatment option for people with lupus, helping manage pain and inflammation, and so much more.
