How Cannabidiol (CBD) Can Help Treat Multiple Sclerosis also called MS

Different forms of Cannabidiol products work better for different diseases. In the case of Multiple Sclerosis or MS, CBD Drops or CBD Flowers are most suitable. Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a major cause of neurological disability among young people. MS causes the immune system to start to attack the central nervous system (CNS). White blood cells infiltrate the myelin surrounding neurons, destroying the sheath that protects and insulates them. Because myelin is essential for the nervous system to function properly, it is this demyelination along with inflammation that causes the physical and cognitive impairments in MS sufferers.

How Cannabidiol Works in Cases of Multiple Sclerosis (MS)?

CBD against Multiple Sclerosis. Cannabidiol (CBD), unlike THC which is available in high-doses in medical marijuana, does not induce any psychoactive effects. Furthermore, Cannabidiol also carries therapeutic effects and is believed to be able to help patients with several different medical conditions. The benefits of Cannabidiol in helping people with MS have not been shown in any clinical trials to date, whether in the United States or elsewhere. We recommend that you seek the advice of a medical doctor or health professional when trying to leverage CBD products for your MS symptoms.

However, Scientists Believe that CBD Drops or CBD Flowers Can Help Patients with Multiple Sclerosis in the Following Ways:

1. Its ability to control muscle tone

Several studies found that cannabinoids are effective in controlling muscle tone, which can greatly improve the severity and frequency of spasticity. Furthermore, they can also help by controlling tremors, as well as improve bladder function, which is a major issue with MS sufferers.

2. Its ability to relieve pain

MS sufferers suffering from chronic pain can benefit from the analgesic properties of CBD drops. Those work by mediating the function of glycine receptors, regulating how pain receptors signal the spinal cord and brain. For acute pain caused by MS, CBD Flowers can be smoked. When smoked, the Cannabidiol will enter the bloodstream rapidly for fast relief.

3. Its ability to reduce inflammation

Because the immune system is in overdrive in MS sufferers, one of the biggest issues they have to deal with is inflammation in the brain. CBD is a powerful anti-inflammatory active compound. In addition, it also helps to regulate the immune system. Again, a major aspect that shows CBD’s abillity to help people suffering from Multiple Sclerosis. 

4. Its ability to protect and regenerate neurons

Cannabinoids have been shown to protect neurons and help with neurogenesis, the creation of new neural cells. Which can help in the recovery process  from Multiple Sclerosis.

5. Its ability to reduce anxiety and depression

30.5% of MS patients struggle with depression, and about 22% with anxiety. If Cannabidiol is taken as CBD drops or smoked as CBD Flowers, it has been shown to directly influence the limbic system. This is the so-called “emotional” brain – reducing stress and depressions.

Our Product Types

For a condition such as Multiple Sclerosis, it’s important to use a high-quality product and do so regularly when using CBD. The following mode of administration is typically recommended:

Sublingual Treatments & Ingestibles

For daily prevention and maintenance, we recommend using a full-spectrum or broad-spectrum CBD drops, tincture, or gel capsules. This will allow for a slow onset of action that lasts throughout the day. To keep the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis in check, this is perfect.

Vaping & Smoking

For acute flare-up of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) tremors, spasticity, or pain, vaping CBD or smoking CBD flowers can provide almost immediate relief due to its fast onset of action.

Dosage for CBD Flowers and CBD Drops for Multiple Sclerosis

CBD for Multiple Sclerosis is very personal and dependent on the type and severity of symptoms. The general rule of thumb for CBD dosage is 25 mg of Cannabidiol, taken twice daily. If results from this amount are not felt, the serving size can be increased by another 25 mg every 3-4 weeks.  Continue doing so, until the optimal dosage is found.

25 mg CBD 2x/day
