Cannabis is very helpful for lupus, especially in dealing with joint pain, fatigue as well as other more subjective symptoms. I would reccomend sublingual tincture with a high pecentage of CBD. Also it may be helpful to consume raw juiced cannabis leaves. THC or delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol is one of the cannabinoids found in cannabis, and it is manufactured synthetically. THC alone is not as helpful as whole plant cannabis.

"In conclusion, our results demonstrate, for the first time, an alteration of the endocannabinoid system in SLE patients. They represent the first step toward the understanding of the role of eCB system in SLE that likely suggest DAGL and 2-AG as potential biomarkers of SLE in easily accessible blood samples. Our data provides proof-of-concept to the development of cannabis-based medicine as immune-modulating agents."
