Multiple Sclerosis Treatment Options Through CBD 

Multiple Sclerosis or MS is a degenerative condition in which a person’s immune system attacks the healthy cells within their body. MS will usually target the healthy cells in the spinal cord and near the brain. Over time, these constant attacks can cause damage to mobility, cognitive functions, and brain nerve responses. 

This condition can lead to various symptoms in people but generally expands from fatigue and muscle soreness to disruptive muscle spasms and cognitive dysfunction. 

So how can CBD help?

CBD cannabinoids offer restorative properties to the body through the Endocannabinoid system. These beneficial cannabinoids help supplement depleted resources within MS patients. It helps reduce inflammation caused within the body through the autoimmune disorder characteristic of MS. CBD also brings a calming effect and mood-boosting properties to patients with MS through cannabinoids being delivered to brain and nerve functions. 

The general consensus of recent studies is that CBD can help treat depression, fatigue, pain, muscle soreness, and muscle spasms. 

Even better, if you are someone with MS then you probably already know you aren’t alone in trying CBD. It’s been reported that 60% of patients with MS are already using CBD to help manage their symptoms and 90% are willing to try it. CBD offers relief in the multi-faceted way patients with MS  need. 

From a research perspective held by this article. CBD is a great alternative to traditional MS prescriptions given to patients. The prescribed opioids used to treat the difficult symptoms of MS appear to be counteractive to the doctor’s goal of helping their patients live healthy and normal lives. Opioid prescriptions usually involve adverse side effects that, while reducing pain and muscle spasticity, also limit the patient's lifestyle. The referred article gives a general study about the effects of not only CBD but also THC and its effects on patients with MS. 

The article stated that up to 1500 mg a day of CBD is completely safe for an extended period of time within the human body. It also listed the benefits of using CBD in addition to a THC product for MS patients struggling with their condition. The benefit of switching over from prescription medications to a CBD/THC product will lead to fewer adverse side effects in the long run. Of course, due to THC’s psychoactive effects, it’s possible for dependency or addictive habits to form and should be used responsibly. 

The article also stated that a healthy alternative is to up your dosage of CBD in order to lessen or eliminate your use of THC products!
