CBD and Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the central nervous system, it affects approximately 2.3 million people worldwide. CBD and multiple sclerosis is a topic that leads in many directions.

The symptoms of MS are highly varied but frequently include pain, muscle fatigue – elasticity, inflammation, and depression. These symptoms often lead to reduced physical activity and negatively impact mobility and have a detrimental impact on patients quality of life. It is more common in women than in men.

Although recent years have seen significant advances in disease therapy, none of the current treatments halts or cures MS-related symptoms.
In conversations about M.S, you will often hear the word ‘Spasticity’ this is a condition where certain muscles are continuously contracted. This contraction causes stiffness or tightness of the muscles, it can interfere with normal movement, speech, and gait. Spasticity is usually caused by damage to the portion of the brain or spinal cord that controls voluntary movement.

Cannabidiol (CBD), the main non-psychoactive component of cannabis, is known to exhibit both anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective effects against known and suspected autoimmune diseases, Given what little is known about the MS, it was theorized that medicinal CBD could also be of benefit to MS patients.

Drugs such as Sativex, a cannabis oil consisting mainly of CBD and Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), can now be prescribed to MS patients living in countries and states with medicinal cannabis programs who feel that their symptoms are not being relieved by traditional pharmaceuticals.

There is also evidence that CBD may reduce the negative psychotropic effects, memory impairment, and appetite stimulation, anxiety and psychotic-like states of THC while enhancing its positive therapeutic actions.

As researchers gain more access to CBD studies, many positive traits are coming to light, many suffering from M.S are getting better sleep which helps with fatigue and it has a strong role in pain relief and muscle spasms.

Many M.S suffers are coming to the table with their experience with CBD, the response is overwhelmingly positive, improved daily living and hopes for the future. Each case is different but through my research, it is apparent lots of folk with M.S are sharing their experience with CBD and are reaching out to the community with their results and application methods.

And as always, when you are considering using CBD to treat a medical condition, it’s important to do so under your doctor’s supervision. This is especially important if you are taking other medications because CBD has the potential to interact with some common pharmaceuticals.
