Medical Marijuana and Lyme Disease

Early symptoms of Lyme disease include fever, headaches, bouts of chronic fatigue, depression and a characteristic circular rash called erythema migrans, or EM. If Lyme disease is left untreated, it can later lead to worsening symptoms that may involve the joints, heart or even the central nervous system. In many cases, the infection and the symptoms associated with the infection are eliminated by antibiotics. If treated early, antibiotics are usually the most effective treatment of this condition. Any form of a delayed or inadequate approach to treating this condition can lead to more serious conditions that may be life threatening.

Many individuals who suffer from Lyme disease will not think to believe that cannabis could be considered one of the more affective long-term medicines to help alleviate symptoms of this condition. Cannabis is a far safer and smoother medication that can eliminate pain from this condition in all forms. The use of this drug fights the aches in your joints and the pain throughout your whole body, while providing the energy needed to make it through rough days when your symptoms are high. Medical marijuana is more effective than aspirin as an anti-inflammatory and more effective as a chronic pain treatment. Aside from these two qualities, it will also serve as an effective muscle relaxer and effective joint pain reliever.
