Autoimmune Conditions and Cannabis

What does the science state?

Last month I was honored to represent, Cannabis Nurses of Color during a live discussion with Minorities for Medical Marijuana. The topic of discussion was autoimmune disorders that affect black and brown communities and the benefits of cannabis to help with these conditions.

Listen in as we discuss the research, science, and nuance of cannabis medicine to help manage autoimmune conditions. Some of the conditions include multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, fibromyalgia, and irritable bowel syndrome. There have been such promising results in the use of cannabinoid therapy and it’s no wonder why women particularly; women of color are wanting to learn more about cannabis for their health and wellness.

On a recent episode of How to Do the Pot, I shared a bit more about lupus and autoimmune conditions. Take a listen.
