Scientific evidence: Cannabis and Multiple Sclerosis

Cannabis can help multiple sclerosis patients manage the symptoms associated with their disease. Cannabis has shown to be effective at reducing pain, muscle stiffness and spasms in multiple sclerosis patients (Koppel, et al., 2014) (Wade, et al., 2004). In one study, multiple sclerosis patients saw significant improvements in muscle spasticity and reduced sleep disturbances after four weeks of cannabis treatment (Novotna, et al., 2011). A similar study found that multiple sclerosis patients experienced pain and sleep improvements after five weeks of treatment with cannabis containing both THC and CBD (Rog, Nurmikko, Friede & Young, 2005). In a questionnaire, multiple sclerosis patients responded that cannabis was effective in improving spasticity, chronic pain of extremities, tremors, emotional dysfunctions, fatigue, double vision, bowel and bladder dysfunctions, dysfunctions of walking and balance and memory loss (Consroe, et al., 1997). - See more at: http://medicalmarijuanainc.com/multiple-sclerosis-medical-marijuana-research/#sthash.qePAnGcD.dpuf
