Cannabis and Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune neurological condition that causes the protective cells
that surround nerve cells to degrade. The body attacks the cells, thinking that they’re harmful.
The end result is unprotected cells that malfunction, often causing pain, issues with
coordination, muscle spasticity, fatigue, and depression.

Multiple sclerosis isn’t very simple. There is a wide range of side effects, and it’s very possible
for two people with multiple sclerosis to have very little in common in terms of how the
condition affects them.

Some people have relapsing and remitting MS, where these autoimmune attacks aren’t
persistently happening. They could go months or even years without experiencing symptoms.
These people often have bad days and good days. There are progressive forms of MS where
these attacks don’t stop, leading to the worsening of symptoms over time.

The following is an extract from the MS Society in the UK.

In November 2018, the UK government legalised cannabis for medicinal use, but also put a

strict criterion in place for who could accessit. Only specialist doctors are allowed to prescribe

medicinal cannabis, and so far only a handful of people have benefited from the change in

law. One in five people with multiple sclerosis (MS) surveyed in 2014 told the MS Society they’d

used cannabis to help with their symptoms. They said it can help with muscle spasms or

stiffness (spasticity) and pain.
