Another interesting MS presentation by Ben Thrower, M.D. on Cannabinoids and MS (February 2017). This MS presentation takes you through the different types of Cannobinoids, its history, effects and the legal aspects.
The MS presentation includes information that strong evidence that Cannabinoid extract pills made from pure CBD can help lessen patients reported spasticity symptoms short-term. In addition that strong evidence shows cannabinoid extract pills can lessen central pain (feelings of painful burning or pins/needles). Furthermore that oral spray probably helps lessen frequent urination.
Some research has suggested both anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective effects from cannabinoids. To date, research has not shown an effect of cannabinoids on relapse rates, disability progression or new MRI lesions.
