Lupus

Lupus is a chronic auto-immune inflammatory disease that causes symptoms specific to each individual patient. It is more common among Asians and Blacks and there is, as yet, no known cure.

Lupus and Your Endocannabinoid System

The endocannabinoid system works to restore balance in the immune and the inflammatory systems. It can be enhanced and supported in these functions by phytocannabinoids (from plants). [38]

 

There is promising research on the use of specific synthetic cannabinoids to block excessive and damaging inflammation caused by overactive immune systems. [70]
