    Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is a mysterious, life-altering condition with no known cause or cure. But there is growing evidence that CBD can help manage some of the symptoms. Here’s what we mean.

    What We Know About Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

    Also called myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), CFS:

    • is a long-term illness
    • can happen to children, adolescents & adults
    • occurs more in women than men
    • could develop gradually or show up all at once
    • may be triggered by another health condition or an infection
    • symptoms vary widely in severity

    The Dispiriting, Even Debilitating Symptoms of CFS

    Sufferers of CFS feel sick, diminished, not like themselves. The symptoms are:

    • extreme fatigue that doesn’t go away with rest, and gets worse if you exert yourself
    • reduced mental and physical stamina
    • problems concentrating, thinking and remembering
    • insomnia
    • muscle and joint pain
    • dizziness
    • headaches
    • heart palpitations
    • flu-like symptoms

    The Big Questions Are Unanswered

    • what causes it
    • how do we test for it
    • what specific CFS medicines are there
    • what is the cure

    While nothing has been proven yet, some researchers believe CFS starts when many systems throughout the body stop working properly.

    How CBD Can Help Treat Chronic Fatigue Symptoms

    CBD aligns with your own endocannabinoid system, which helps your body maintain a state of balance and stability. While studying CBD, researchers have recognized its ability to help the body deal with several CFS symptoms, even though they were not looking into this specific condition. Here are some of the ways CBD might help relieve symptoms of chronic fatigue:

    Relieving pain. Reducing fatigue

    Sometimes the central nervous system gets imbalanced and either under-inhibits pain or overreacts to it — leaving people with constant pain. CBD strengthens the endocannabinoid system, helping to restore balance in the central nervous system (CNS). Potentially leaving you with less pain and more energy. Because of its impact on the CNS, it may even improve regulation of the heart rate.

    Improving sleep

    CBD can help treat causes of sleeplessness — including chronic pain — with no “high” and none of the side effects common to prescription medications. It may also help you with the impacts of poor sleep, like grogginess and excessive daytime sleepiness.

    Take A Big Step Toward Better Health

    It has to be really hard for anyone dealing with CFS symptoms. And getting a diagnosis can take years, because it’s mainly a process of ruling out other conditions. But don’t give up on feeling better. And absolutely don’t give up on yourself. I came really close, for very different reasons. And now it’s just a memory. I wish you the same.
