Lupus is a serious inflammatory disease caused by an overactive immune system that attacks organs and tissues of the body. Joints, kidneys, skin, heart, lungs, blood cells and brain tissue can become inflamed. Lupus patients are in constant pain and end up taking an overwhelming variety of pills.
It can take months and sometimes years to find the right combination of medications before health care professionals can prescribe the right cocktail of medications. Treatments can range from aspirin to genetically engineered compounds or steroids and other immunosuppressive medications.
Research is ongoing to test how CBD oil can provide a better quality of life for Lupus patients and relieve pain and high level inflammation. CBD oils are often used for its natural elements rather than synthetic ingredients that can cause further organ damage.
