Demi talks about what Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is, and the effects CBD has on autoimmune disease. Multiple sclerosis is a degenerative disease of the central nervous system that affects over 2.5 million people all over the world. The development of multiple sclerosis and risk factors are still a mystery to doctors to this day. However, a recent study has shown that CBD, from the cannabis plant, may actually slow down the effects of multiple sclerosis, and to relieve symptoms.

Symptoms of MS (Multiple Sclerosis) Include:

  • Muscle spasms
  • Mobility issues
  • Pain
  • Fatigue
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Stiffness
  • Weakness
  • Trouble seeing
  • Difficulty thinking

Multiple Sclerosis occurs when our immune system attacks itself, this is called an autoimmune systems disease. Demi Explains: “How exactly can CBD help multiple sclerosis so even though at the moment research is limited to the links between CBD and multiple sclerosis there have been some studies carried out”.

Through research, they have noticed that inflammatory is increased in people with MS. We are unsure as to whether or not inflammation is the cause of the disease, or whether it occurs as a symptom of multiple sclerosis. All we know is that inflammation is involved in the side effects of Multiple sclerosis regardless. Knowing this information, we can treat Multiple Sclerosis with Cannabis oil due to previous research that has been carried out, on cannabis oil being used as an anti-inflammatory.

A study in Israel was carried out on animals, where mice were injected with their equivalent to Multiple sclerosis, the CBD actually helped improve the mice’s multiple sclerosis symptoms and was able to reduced nerve damage and overall inflammation. The author of the study concluded that CBD may have the potential for ease MS-related symptoms.

Many MS sufferers experience a lot of pain, mostly caused by inflammatory. The pain is due to the release of chemicals like histamine, that fuel the nerve endings. Other studies carried out on CBD, suggest that CBD oil has shown positive outcomes on medicinal cannabis being used as a Pain-killer.
