CBD for HIV and AIDS
HIV has been a health threat for decades and has seen incalculable funds invested in its research. Though there is not yet any proven cure for HIV or AIDS, research is still ongoing, with many supplements and medications coming up to aide in its management.
Though HIV and AIDS are two seperate aliments, the two are often discussed together due to their relationship. Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is an infection that damages the body’s immune system and makes it difficult to defend against different viruses and bacteria. HIV is exchanged through various bodily fluids and some people can go years without even realizing they’re infected. Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) is the most advanced and final stage of HIV which damages the immune system even further, making it near impossible to ward off against harmful illnesses. There is currently no cure, however, proper treatment plans can help patients manage their symptoms and live a normal life. While inflammation can be good at times by letting you know something is wrong; it can also be extremely painful.
How CBD Works To Help HIV and AIDS
CBD is becoming an accepted treatment option for those with autoimmune diseases such as HIV or AIDS. Since the disease can produce a variety of symptoms, it’s important to find a treatment that can provide true relief and reduce pain; CBD is known to help with symptoms such as pain and fatigue. HIV treatment is accompanied by unfavorable effects to the patient as antiretroviral drugs are associated with nausea, depression, anxiety, skin tingling, loss of appetite, insomnia, and muscle pains. All these symptoms can be managed by regular consumption of CBD.
Research studies have used doses from 15mg to as high as 600mg. Typical CBD supplements provide 20mg to 25mg. When taking CBD for inflammation, dosing can vary widely depending on the severity of the symptoms you are experiencing. One goal to consider is to use CBD to supplement or possibly replace pharmaceuticals you might be taking. CBD is an all-natural alternative that does not build up in your system and cannot be overdosed.
May we suggest trying one of our CUBED Hemp based CBD Tinctures. Available in 1200mg or 3600mg concentrations, mixed with our exclusive Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Italy or NYS-sourced sunflower seed oil. Our Graduated Sprayer makes it simple to dose properly.
It is important to consult with your healthcare provider before starting any supplement program. Most prescribed medications cannot and should not be stopped all at once.
It has been suggested to start with a dose of 10mg to 15mg of CBD twice a day. After a few days, you may want to reduce prescribed meds incrementally while increasing your CBD dosage the following day. Steps of 10mg are suggested to help monitor changes. Monitor your symptoms; be aware of how you feel. Don’t hurry the process. Wait 2 to 3 days between changes. This will allow you to determine the dosing that your body requires to meet your goals, while documenting how your medications interact.
