As many as 3 million people in North America could be infected with Lyme Disease, an inflammatory infection that spreads to humans through tick bites. Every organ of the body can be negatively affected by Lyme. But Dr. Ernie Murakami of British Columbia, Canada has found that cannabidiol treated patients respond favourably. Could this be the treatment of the future?

    I am on cannabis treatment for two years now I began eating oils and its saved my life .I was on chemo for three years because they made a mistake after methotrexate, humira and after those drugs it was antibiotics for five years for Lyme disease it almost killed me ! So I was a smoker of cannabis for 40 years. Now vape and edible oils THC and cbd I’m going to be OK now . my Lyme Dr just asked me for the recipe and now her patients are taking cbd now …’s amazing and all my friends are taking oils and doing better .all good news !

    • Any chance you can share the recipe here as well?

        I’m not sure what you are referring to when you say recipe. The good Dr. talks about the use of CBD oil he does not discuss a recipe.

    Wonderful interview. Nice to see input from a medical practitioner who still has enough curiosity and tenacity to pursue this research when the mainstream medical community have their fingers in their ears. Having worked with doctors myself for many, many years, I can attest to the fact that, for they most part, they are wonderful , hard working people who want to do the right thing, but they have a medical licence to protect and suggesting treatments that do not have the imprimatur of the gold standard, double-blinded study is verboten! Very few will risk that licence no matter how much anecdotal evidence you put in front of them.

    The Dr. keeps talking about “eggs” which is not the correct term (bacteria don’t lay eggs). I believe he means the cyst form of the bacteria. Can anyone confirm?

      The doctor was referring to the tick laying eggs.

        Sorry, that’s definitely not true. Ticks do not lay eggs on or in the mammals they bite, rather the bacteria in the tick enters a person’s body when the tick sucks the person’s blood. I listened again and understand now that he’s talking about one of the three forms the Borrelia (lyme) bacteria takes: spirochetes, cysts which I’m pretty sure are the same as cell-wall-deficient forms (also called L-forms), and biofilms. The first time he mentions eggs he says “eggs or L-forms or cysts.” I think the radio-host misinterpreted this, and it’s because “eggs” is not the correct term, and is misleading.
