After meeting Janet here in LA, I was in awe with inspiration. She is battling Hashimoto’s disease, and after only 6 months of chatting, she has grown so much. Being so influenced, my curiosity spiked on how CBD can help a person with Hashimoto’s along with Graves’ disease.
What is Hashimoto’s Disease?Hashimoto’s disease is a condition in which your immune system attacks your thyroid. It’s a small gland at the base of your neck below your Adam’s apple. The thyroid gland produces hormones that coordinate several of your body’s functions. Inflammation is one of the leading symptoms of Hashimoto’s disease. Hashimoto’s primarily affects women and one of the most common causes of hypothyroidism in the United States. Symptoms of Hashimoto range from:
- Joint & Muscle pain
- Hair loss
- Weight gain
- Heavy or irregular menstrual periods
- Puffy or paleness of the face
