This disease can be disabling when the brain and spinal cord /central nervous system are affected. The body’s immune system attacks the myelin (protective sheath) covering the nerve fibres. This means that communication between the brain and body is affected and, over time, the nerves start to weaken or become damaged forever. Multiple Sclerosis affects people in varying degrees, which depends on how much nerve damage there is. Some people are affected so badly that they can no longer walk, while others show no new symptoms and enter what doctors call ‘remission’. It is sad that there is no cure for MS, but modern treatments do speed up recovery from attacks. These can adjust the progress of the disease, managing its symptoms and allowing patients to be in remission.
How Can Cannabis Oil Benefit Multiple Sclerosis?
Cannabis oil is a calming therapy, naturally, and has no negative side effects. Cannabinoids, or chemical compounds, go straight to the root of MS symptoms, working with the body’s endocannabinoid system to heal the immune system and central nervous system. Cannabis oil gives relief to patients who are in pain and suffer muscle spasticity and stiffness. Cannabinoids like cannabidiol (CBD) are calming and great treatments for anxiety, stress and spasticity. Having Multiple Sclerosis is exhausting and at least the CBD can tackle this symptom. It is very tiring having muscle spasticity, stiffness and arms and legs that rarely are still. This means very little sleep at night too and the pain is draining. But cannabis oil can relieve these symptoms associated with Multiple Sclerosis.
