Immune System Disorders Q & A

What are autoimmune disorders?

Immune system disorders cause abnormally low activity or over-activity of the immune system. When the immune system is decreased, it lessens the body’s natural ability to fight invaders which can potentially lead to vulnerability to infections and more serious conditions. In cases of the immune system over activity, the immune system may begin producing antibodies that attack and damage the body’s tissues instead of fighting infections.

What are some examples of autoimmune diseases?

There are as many as 80 different types of autoimmune diseases, many of which have similar symptoms, making them difficult to diagnose. Some types of autoimmune diseases include:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Lupus
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Type 1 diabetes mellitus
  • Guillain-Barre syndrome
  • Psoriasis
  • Graves' disease
  • Hashimoto's thyroiditis
  • Myasthenia gravis
  • Vasculitis
  • HIV/AID
  • Seizure Disorder
  • Crohn's Disease
  • Colitis

How are immune system disorders treated with medical marijuana?

Patients report that cannabis reduces inflammation and pain, alleviates nausea and increases appetite that helps to maintain a patient’s weight, modulates neurogenesis and neurodegeneration in conditions such as HIV/AIDS, wasting syndrome, and in auto-immune diseases such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, IBS, Crohn's disease and colitis.  For more information -
