Can Hemp Oil help Lyme disease? Many have asked the question, in light of testimonials touting its efficacy in alleviating symptoms. So, we set out to provide answers and separate fact from fiction. And, we also supported Bay Area Lyme Foundation for those suffering from the disease. Our hope is that, with regular use, those with Lyme disease might experience relief from debilitating symptoms.

At Synchronicity™, our focus extends beyond producing the highest quality CBD products. We celebrate wellness in its many forms and partner with organizations with similar interests.

About Lyme Disease

With over 400,000 Americans afflicted with Lyme disease each year, this illness remains a serious health issue in the United States. Humans get infected after being bitten by a black-legged tick carrying the Borrelia burgdorferi bacteria (also called spirochetes because of the bacteria’s corkscrew shape and propulsive twisting motion).

Although these bacteria replicate slowly, it’s one of the few able to survive without the trace mineral iron. Instead, it depends upon manganese for survival (which opens the possibility of starving this bacteria by eliminating manganese).

Lyme disease was originally discovered in 1976 in Lyme, Connecticut. However, a group of researchers at Yale University have determined that the Lyme disease bacterium has actually been circulating in forests for over 60,000 years — well before the advent of human civilization.

Incidents of Lyme disease have been found in all 50 states as well as in 65 other countries around the world.

Although few studies have been done about Lyme disease, the results of these studies have been promising. This has prompted calls for further research on the disease. Not only is Lyme disease treatable, especially in its early stages, but it may also be possible to eliminate it in human populations. Further, it’s strongly felt that CBD for Lyme disease has a high potential for aiding those suffering from Lyme disease and other tick-related diseases.

Lyme disease is just one of the many ailments you can get from specific sources outdoors. From Poison Ivy, to getting stung by a bee, nature is full of defense mechanisms and dangers. Getting some relief from those nature-borne aches, rashes, bumps and more can be difficult. Sometimes relief comes in a form you weren't expecting though, and it's for that reason we urge you to try Synchronicity hemp oil's Full Spectrum CBD products. They won't cure your rash, or take the sting out of that bee's attack, but you might feel better anyways.

However, until a full cure is found, preventive measures can be highly effective in alleviating symptoms. Some of the most common and sensible actions you can take to reduce your own risk of Lyme disease include:

  • Avoiding Tick-Populated Areas: The following locales are popular haunts for ticks:
    • Beach Grass
    • Bushy Areas
    • Leaf Litter
    • Long Grass
    • Stone Walls
    • Wood Piles
  • Tick Checking: Upon returning from outdoor activity, look for ticks under the arms, in and around the ears, inside the navel, behind the knees, on the legs, around the waist, and in the hair.
  • Gear Checking: Thoroughly examine any backpacks, jackets, or other outdoor gear.
  • Pet Screening: If Fido spent time outdoors with you, check his coat for ticks.
  • Thorough Washing: Take a shower to uncover any unnoticed ticks. Remove them before they burrow into your skin.

When examining gear, pets, or yourself, take your time and be especially thorough. The black-legged tick is quite tiny (about the size of a sesame seed). It also injects a numbing agent into your flesh when it bites you, so you don’t even feel it!

Spending more time examining your person and gear will pay off in the long run. So, make it a habit to do a thorough search.

Identifying Lyme Disease Stages and Symptoms

Those infected with Lyme disease can go through three stages of the illness. Meanwhile, symptoms can vary between the stages. However, not every patient experiences all three stages.

  • Early Localized: Lyme disease is easier to treat if identified at an early stage (preferably within a few days of being bitten by a tick). Symptoms during this early stage include:
    • Fatigue
    • Flu Symptoms (chills and fever)
    • Headache/Stiff Neck
    • Joint Pain
    • Sore Muscles
    • Sore Throat
    • Skin Rash (may look like a bull’s eye)
    • Swollen Lymph Nodes
  • Early Disseminated: This second stage of Lyme Disease can begin weeks or months after infection, as bacteria begin spreading throughout the body. Early symptoms may intensify, while new symptoms can also appear, including:
    • Body Rashes
    • Chest Pain
    • Chills
    • Fatigue
    • Facial Paralysis (Bell’s Palsy)
    • Fever
    • Headaches
    • Heart Palpitations
    • Numbness, Pain, Weakness in Extremities
    • Vision Changes
  • Late Disseminated: If not properly treated in the first two stages, the disease enters the post-treatment, chronic, or neurological stage, where the following symptoms develop:
    • Arthritis in Joints and Near Infection Area
    • Confusion/Concentration Deterioration
    • Difficulty Following Conversations and Processing Information
    • Heart Arrhythmia
    • Insomnia
    • Intense Headaches and Migraines
    • Migrating Pains
    • Numbness in Arm, Hands, Legs, Feet
    • Severe Fatigue
    • Stiff and Aching Neck
    • Vertigo
    • Neurological and Cardiac Symptoms

During this third stage of Lyme Disease, more attention is paid to alleviating severe symptoms.

About the Bay Area Lyme Foundation

Founded in 2011 and recently spotlighted as one of the most innovative nonprofits in America, the Bay Area Lyme Foundation has a lofty goal — to develop and share a cure for Lyme disease and other tick-related diseases. Lyme disease affects hundreds of thousands of individuals each year, and the foundation wants to help.

The founders are Silicon Valley residents, each of whom were directly impacted by Lyme disease.

Their goal is simple yet powerful — funding new research to develop treatments that alleviate symptoms while seeking a cure. Given sufficient time and funding, this looks to be a realistic goal.

Note, however, that the foundation isn’t an informal program composed of individuals with merely personal interests. Bay Area Lyme Foundation boasts an impressive Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) comprised of ten leaders specializing in fields related to the study and understanding of Lyme disease.

The board is made up of active members focused on enacting positive change. And, thanks to an anonymous donor, all administrative and operational expenses are covered, meaning that 100% of donations go towards research and prevention programs.

So far, over 100 projects from 37 institutions have received funding from Bay Area Lyme Foundation for researching diagnostics, disease ecology, and therapeutics, all addressing Lyme disease directly.

The foundation has also developed a helpful website providing a wealth of information and resources related to Lyme disease. It also features information on other tick-borne diseases such as tick paralysis, anaplasmosis, and babesiosis.

How Hemp Oil May Support Lyme Disease Symptoms

As mentioned above, we donated to Bay Area Lyme because we were impressed by the organization’s focus on healing.

The more we learned about Lyme disease and its devastating effects, the more curious we became about how the regular use of our Synchronicity™ CBD product line could benefit those suffering from symptoms connected to the disease. Lyme disease patients and what they go through in dealing and treating the disease is something we hold dear. 

As our regular customers know, we don’t sell cures or false promises. Instead, we promote lifestyles that improve overall wellness.

To this end, and based upon the anecdotal experiences of our clients, we are strong believers in the ability of hemp to amplify, augment, and enhance any treatment plans (for Lyme Disease) recommended by your medical team. 

We highly encourage complete transparency with your physicians. Tell them which hemp products you want to incorporate into your treatments for Lyme Disease, even if they are self-administered.

As mentioned above, many Lyme disease patients experience one or all three stages of the disease. But, there’s hope. Many of our customers have gained relief from enervating symptoms by using our Hemp Oil products.

Listed below are five symptoms common to Lyme disease patients.


For centuries, arthritis has afflicted millions of humans, particularly as they age. For almost as long, health practitioners have been seeking reliable, natural solutions to bring relief to those suffering from swollen and stiffened joints.

According to a poll conducted by the Arthritis Foundation (as reported by Harvard Health Publishing), 29% of respondents said that they have used hemp products (in the form of tinctures and topicals) to alleviate arthritic symptoms.

The positive effects most commonly mentioned are the potential for better sleep, improved functioning, and decreased mood tension, with a minority achieving noticeable reductions in pain and stiffness.

Beyond this anecdotal poll, there are scientific (double-blind placebo-controlled) studies highlighting the ability of hemp to support physical comfort and wellbeing.

Another important study, The Health Effects of Cannabis and Cannabinoids (available through The National Academies Press), offers “a comprehensive review of scientific evidence related to the health effects and potential therapeutic benefits of cannabis.” The review also presents positive evidence that hemp is effective in alleviating chronic physical discomfort.

Over time, we anticipate finding more peer-reviewed studies showing a strong relationship between Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil products and arthritis relief.

In the meantime, consider using quality CBD products, such as those offered by Synchronicity™, to support your healing, and even enhance treatments for Lyme Disease symptoms like Arthritis.

Mental Confusion

Maintaining focus is essential to getting things done. When confusion reigns, it may seem like life is falling apart. However, if you consider confusion merely a state of mind, then the trick is to learn how to maintain focus. 

That is unfortunately a more difficult task for anyone suffering from Lyme Disease. Widely reported are cases of different mental effects, from paranoia, to general brain fog. For anyone not suffering a heavier mental side effect of Lyme Disease, CBD poses a few numerous benefits to helping deal with a lack of focus or needing a bit more brain power.

Including CBD products in your daily wellness regimen can provide an extra edge — something we can all use during both hectic and calm periods, but this is especially helpful for anyone suffering lack of mental clarity.

CBD oil, hemp oil, and otherwise definitely have unique properties, and interact with a part of our body that only interacts with cannabinoids. Try some of these connections out yourself. Try CBD for adventure. Try CBD for travel. Try CBD for Anxiety. Try CBD for Pain Management. We're not saying it will help you, we're saying the body has some functions reserved for only when cannabinoids provided by products like these are present.


One of the best indications that quality hemp products can reduce fatigue is shown in this article on CBD oils and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS).

As with most major ailments, serious peer-reviewed studies exploring the relationship between Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil and fatigue are slow in appearing. However, rest assured that such research is being performed with greater intensity and interest each passing year.

There are several reasons why physicians and pharmacists are eager to learn more about quality hemp products for battling fatigue:

  • Accompanying Pain: All too often, fatigue is accompanied by various pains that also demand attention. Alleviating pain can reduce fatigue.
  • Limited Fatigue Treatments: Particularly for acute cases of fatigue (like CFS), there are no FDA-approved treatment plans yet in place.
  • Opioid Concerns: We are currently facing a national opioid crisis, which caretakers don’t want to exacerbate by using strong medications to treat fatigue.
  • Promising CBD Properties: Many studies and anecdotal testimonials point to the ability of quality hemp products to support physical comfort and wellbeing.

Much data has surfaced to warrant the addition of Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil to your health regimen (be sure to consult with your primary care physician) to relieve fatigue and physical discomfort. 


An article by Harvard Health Publishing celebrating the many beneficial properties of quality hemp products specifically mentions that “CBD may help with both falling asleep and staying asleep.”

For those dealing with chronic pain, insomnia is a common side effect, including for Lyme Disease. Getting physical relief can eliminate one of the root causes of insomnia.

Yet another study indicates quality CBD products can affect the body’s natural release of cortisol, effectively acting as a safe, natural sedative. One of the outcomes from this study was the recommendation of higher doses of Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil prior to sleeping, as it seems to interact effectively with cortisol.

Sore Muscles

We find that many scientists and doctors often reach a consensus when discussing the healing properties of quality hemp products.

In whatever form physical discomfort may appear, it seems that CBD products can deliver a positive impact without the unpleasantness of severe side effects — all too common with prescription medications.

In fact, we discussed the issue of physical discomfort above in both the “Arthritis” and “Fatigue” sections, since it’s a large factor in each of those disorders.

However, muscle damage and soreness can result from just living an active life. Both are prevalent among high performers who often push their bodies to the limit.

Certainly, no one should be afraid of hard work or vigorous exercise. However, it’s a good idea to treat the body well after a particularly rough day or a rigorous workout, and CBD just so happens to be an excellent means to that end.


We all face a difficulty in our life. Nature can be cruel too, no doubt. Just taking your mind off some of it can itself be a challenge. But don't break down. Everyone has to fight sometime in their life, and their are tools for fighting, managing, and coping. Seek help for issues that you don't feel you can resolve on your own. Find ways to fight back against what ails you.

Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil Products — Sensible Additions to Your Cabinet

No single product offers the ultimate cure for every discomfort. However, many people find that returning to natural solutions provides effective immune support and heightened states of wellbeing.

These individuals have integrated CBD products into their wellness routines and have realized benefits from cannabinoid compounds interacting with the endocannabinoid system.

While new studies investigating the health potential of Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil are constantly underway, millions of enthusiastic users around the world are already achieving spectacular results with quality Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil products.

We are hopeful that our product donation to Bay Area Lyme delivers positive results and brings relief to recipients suffering from Lyme disease symptoms.

It’s our fondest wish that successes in using our outstanding, top quality CBD products become seeds that blossom into potential solutions for helping to eradicate Lyme disease.

Have you struggled with Lyme disease symptoms but found relief with Synchronicity™ Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil products? If so, we’d love to hear from you, and we also encourage you to contact Bay Area Lyme to share your story.
