Multiple Sclerosis and Cannabis Oil

The relationship between Multiple Sclerosis and cannabis oil is complex. But it is becoming a good one – many patients are verifying the good effects of cannabis oil on their Multiple Sclerosis symptoms. Cannabis has been used for years already to relieve the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis. Now doctors are admitting that cannabis oil may also hinder the progress of the disease which can lead to complete disability. This neurodegenerative disease can result in lack of movement in the arms and legs, leaving patients confined to wheel chairs. Cannabis oil can also help patients to wean themselves off their pharmaceutical medication which often has harmful side effects. Cannabis oil has no known negative side effects.

What is Multiple Sclerosis?

This is a disease of the central nervous system, spinal column and brain. The body’s immune system attacks the myelin or protective nerve covering. This sheath that covers nerves in the brain and spinal cord becomes damaged, which interrupts communication within the nervous system. There can be one-off attacks, or the disease can build up over time. Between attacks, symptoms can disappear but usually there is permanent neurological damage.  The name multiple sclerosis refers to the numerous scars or lesions that develop on the white matter of brain and spinal cord. There is no known cure but several medications do relieve symptoms.

Cannabis Oil is a Natural Therapy that can Relieve Symptoms

  • tingling, pins and needles or numbness,
  • muscle weakness,very pronounced muscle spasms and reflexes
  • awkward coordination and balance
  • issues with speech and swallowin
  • blurred vision, double vision
  • extreme fatigue
  • extreme pain
  • bladder and / or bowel problems
  • thinking problems
  • depression, mood swings

The first step is to manage the pain and cannabis oil does this very well. It is a natural anti-inflammatory. Cannabis oil also stimulates appetite so that Multiple Sclerosis sufferers at least eat a good diet and maintain bowel health. The cannabis oil stabilises the bladder to prevent the need to urinate so frequently, as it helps control the muscles in that region. Cannabinoids or chemical compounds in the cannabis oil, especially cannabidiol (CBD) interact with the body’s immune system to promote health. They immediately treat inflammation, the root of an imbalanced immune system. CBD can reduce the muscle spasms experienced by MS sufferers and also allow the patients to sleep at night. This therefore promotes a better quality of life and healthier immune system.

It is important too that CBD relieves depression – it is a natural therapy for anxiety, stress and depression, calming down the patient and encouraging sleep.
