MS and Cannabis

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disorder and neurodegenerative disease. It attacks the myelin sheaths of the brain (lining), which allows passing along of electrical signals. Symptoms of MS may include pain, muscle spasticity, fatigue, inflammation, sleep issues, anxiety and depression. There is no cure for the more than 2.3 million people worldwide suffering with Multiple Sclerosis. Cannabis, specifically its CBD and THC cannabinoids, has been shown to significantly reduce symptoms. Studies have shown that cannabidiol (CBD) reduces spasticity, pain, inflammation, fatigue and depression. Also, some relief is gained by adding a little THC as well. As a result, patients are able to reduce or eliminate the use of pharmaceutical opioids, which contain side effects or are addictive. Cannabis is natural and will not negatively affect your body’s organs.

Remember to seek the advice of your health care professional prior to starting any new supplement.
