CBD oil is available over the counter in most states and can be used to help treat Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.

CBD is found within marijuana but it isn’t the same thing as marijuana. CBD is one of many cannabinoids which can have a positive impact on your physiology and certain tissues in your body.

CBD may help improve Hashimotos & thyroid function through the following ways:

#1. Its influence on immune function – CBD reduces pro-inflammatory cytokines while increasing anti-inflammatory cytokines.

#2. Its influence on the thyroid gland directly – Studies have shown that CBD has a direct impact on thyroid gland function.

#3. Its influence on your hypothalamus – Your hypothalamus helps control metabolism, appetite, and T3 levels.

Beyond these benefits, I am excited about CBD as a therapy for the following reasons:

#1. It’s safety profile.

#2. Additional benefits beyond Hashimoto’s.

#3. The fact that its another therapy for Hashimoto’s.

#4. The fact that it’s available over the counter.

#5. Patient success stories.
