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.

How Does Cannabis Oil Treat Narcolepsy?

Scientists are still uncovering exactly how cannabis oil treats narcolepsy. What they do know is that narcolepsy is a sleep disorder where patients feel overwhelming fatigue during the day, wanting to sleep during normal activities. They also battle to sleep at night as their sleep is constantly interrupted and they suffer vivid nightmares. Cannabis oil can treat sleep disorders like narcolepsy. Taking cannabis oil at night will improve the quality and length of sleep, hopefully reducing that terrible feeling of fatigue during the day. And if the patient with narcolepsy can stay alert during the day, he/she will then be tired at night, ready to sleep. CBD for Alertness, THC for Sleep Cannabidiol (CBD), one of the main cannabinoids found in cannabis, is a natural and alternative therapy for most human conditions, from the common cold to cancer.

What are the differences between THC and CBD cannabis oils? This is something we will break down here. A THC-infused cannabis oil is very different from a CBD-infused cannabis oil.

THC or CBD, that is the Question THC is tetrahydrocannabinol, the only psychoactive cannabinoid in cannabis. CBD is cannabidiol, a cannabinoid free from side effects but packed full of healing abilities. THC is also nature’s incredible healer, but in different ways. CBD and THC react in different ways to cannabinoid receptors in our bodies and brains. THC copies an endocannabinoid called anandamide, which activates the CB1 receptors, found mainly in the brain – therefore instilling a sense of euphoria and increased appetite.  CBD prevents THC from binding with receptor CB1 – which shows when it mitigates the high THC would cause and it reduces the anxiety THC would cause. THC is illegal in most parts of the world because […]
