Medical Marijuana for Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

What is Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disorder that directly affects an individual’s central nervous system where the nerve coating (myelin) is damaged, interrupting the signal from the brain to the spine. This, in turn, causes deterioration in the individual’s vision, hearing, memory, balance, and mobility. There are four courses of MS, according to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Clinically Isolated Syndrome (CIS), Relapsing-remitting Multiple Sclerosis (RRMS), Secondary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis (SPMS), and Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis (PPMS).

Symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis

Some of the symptoms associated with MS include back pain, muscle weakness and spasms, dizziness, fatigue, vision loss or blurry vision, constipation, the sensation of pins and needles, and difficulty speaking. Although the severity and symptoms of MS vary from person to person, one of the most frequent symptoms is muscle spasticity, which causes intense pain, spasms, and eventually complete loss of functionality. Medical cannabis is one option for individuals with multiple sclerosis who are seeking relief from their symptoms.

Best Medical Cannabis for Multiple Sclerosis

Certain cannabis strains that are high in CBD and low in THC have shown potential for multiple sclerosis symptoms. Some studies of specific cannabis strains that have more CBD than THC have shown that by using medical marijuana, multiple sclerosis patients have had reduced muscle stiffness and tremors, allowing for better mobility. Some medical marijuana strains have been found to provide relief from multiple sclerosis symptoms and may be a viable option for some patients. Medical marijuana can also help increase the individual’s balance, bladder control, speech, and eyesight.

How Medical Marijuana Can Help with Multiple Sclerosis

Marijuana and multiple sclerosis have been the subject of recent studies, and some patients have reported positive results from using it as a complementary therapy. Research on multiple sclerosis and weed has shown that cannabis may have the potential to reduce certain symptoms associated with the disease.

Medical marijuana can ease symptoms, increase the level of comfort so patients can sleep, and improve their quality of life. The benefits of medical marijuana for multiple sclerosis may include pain relief, increased mobility, and improved quality of life. While there are different treatment options for patients diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, this chronic, debilitating medical condition has no cure.

Multiple sclerosis cannabis treatment can vary depending on the individual and the severity of their symptoms.
