Let’s look at how CBD can help for Tuberculosis. Tuberculosis is an infectious bacterial disease that affects the lungs and can cause death if left untreated. Commonly also known as TBC, the condition can also spread to other parts of the body, such as the spine and brain. It´s caused by a bacterium called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. It´s estimated that around 2 billion people, or a third of the people in the world, have tuberculosis.
TBC´s spread through the air, as is the flu or the common cold. When a person with TBC sneezes, coughs, laughs, speaks or even sings, small particles of the bacteria can spread into the air and infect a new person by simply inhaling the bacteria. This is why tuberculosis is contagious, but it is not so easy to catch because you will have to spend a lot of time near a person to get sick of it.
A healthy immune system is effective in fighting TBC bacteria. However, people with certain conditions run the risk of contracting tuberculosis: HIV, AIDS, diabetes, kidney disease, brain and neck cancer, cancer treatments such as chemotherapy, medications for organ transplants, malnutrition and low body weight. Crohn’s disease and psoriasis among others. Babies and young children are also at risk of developing tuberculosis because their immune system is not as developed.
Symptoms of TBC include coughing up blood, coughing that lasts more than 3 weeks, fever, fatigue, night sweats, chills, unexplained weight loss, chest pain or pain when breathing and coughing.
What do the studies say?
Studies during the 1950s began to show promising evidence that, even today, the use of cannabis remains therapeutic for tuberculosis. A study in 1960s showed that cannabis resin was successful inhibiting the growth of the tuberculosis bacterium and other pathogens. At that time, we didn´t know much about cannabinoids, although CBD showed to be particularly useful for its antimicrobial characteristics.
In 2011, an Israeli study analyzed rats injected with TBC bacteria to induce experimental autoimmune encephalitis. Which is the animal form of multiple sclerosis. The rats treated with CBD showed a significant progression of the disease. The researchers stated that this was the result of the inhibition of T cell proliferation induced by CBD. However, although it does not clearly state that, it directly affects TBC bacteria; it can play a role in the progression of TBC. So there you have it, now you know how CBD can help for Tuberculosis.
