Lupus & Marijuana

Lupus is a chronic inflammatory autoimmune disease where the body attacks healthy cells.Common symptoms of Lupus are pain and inflammation. Cannabis can help relieve both of these symptoms without the side affects of prescription medications. Endocannabinoids help to modulate pain signals through the nervous system. As they are released in response to unpleasant sensations,they reduce sensitivity to pain. Since transmission of pain signals travel both to and from the brain and spinal cord, the endocanninoids can modulate these signals. Cannabinoids from marijuana seem to relieve pain through the modulation of neurotransmitter release, causing pain relief and an anti-inflammatory effect. When present in sufficient quantities, cannabinoids can decrease the pain sensitivity in patients.
