Multiple sclerosis is a disease that affects the brain and spinal cord. Symptoms vary both in type and severity, but typically include pain, spasms, balance issues, tingling, vision problems and more. Research found that cannabis or cannabis based medicinal extracts can significantly reduce the spasticity associated with multiple sclerosis while having very few negative effects on patients.
Marijuana eases the pain of multiple sclerosis, and nerve pain in general. This is an area where few other options exist, and those that do, such as Neurontin, Lyrica, or opiates are highly sedating. Patients claim that marijuana allows them to resume their previous activities without feeling completely out of it and disengaged.
Medical marijuana may help calm your uncontrolled muscle movements or spasms and let you move your arms and legs more freely without feeling so stiff.
