Hi Treasure Tomorrow!
Welcome to our community! I'm really glad you found us, but I'm so sorry it was through an experience like that!!
I too would encourage you to try either the Hemp CBD or edibles - edibles don't always hit a body like that, it can be a much more pleasant experience.
Something else that Blue Lyme touched on is that it actually can treat these infections for some people, and with your explanation of the body inflammation, that leads me to think it's possibly what happened to you - you had a major herx from it maybe?
Whatever happened, I know it was scary as I've had the same thing happen, only it wasn't from smoking cannabis. It was just these infections and their symptoms, but it didn't make it any less scary! I would however encourage you to detox extra. We talk about
detoxing a lot here, because most people don't do enough, even though we think we are. I'm guilty of that as well.
If you haven't yet, it would be helpful for you to start with reading through the thread at the top of the forum titled,"New to Lyme?...Start here!!", as it is packed full of important information, symptom lists, helpful links and pdf's, how to detox when one has these infections, information on probiotics and much more. And this is another good list of possible detoxing routines: www.tiredoflyme.com/detox-methods.html
