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.
Also called myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), CFS:
Sufferers of CFS feel sick, diminished, not like themselves. The symptoms are:
While nothing has been proven yet, some researchers believe CFS starts when many systems throughout the body stop working properly.
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.
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.
Reducing inflammation, which can cause multiple problems
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.
