Cannabis Multiple Sclerosis Cerebral Palsy
Medical cannabis marijuana is proven to be a superior pharmacological option for treating multiple sclerosis and cerebral palsy.
Multiple sclerosis is a chronic, disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system (CNS). Symptoms include numbness in limbs, loss of vision, and paralysis. Many MS sufferers are in constant pain.
Cerebral palsy refers to a broad group of disorders that affects a person’s ability to move. It is a life-long condition with no known cure. Cerebral palsy symptoms include degradation of muscle control, body movement, reflex, posture, muscle coordination, vision, learning, speech, and cognitive function. Epilepsy is also common with cerebral palsy.
The cannabinoids found in medical marijuana are anecdotally and clinically proven to treat many of the above symptoms with no negative side effects.
The two most researched cannabinoids are THCA and CBD. These medicinally powerful compounds ease the muscle spasticity and pain associated with these two debilitating conditions. They also prevent epileptic episodes and mitigate brain damage.
This is due to THCA’s antispasmodic, anticonvulsive, and neurotransmitting properties. CBD is an anti-inflammatory, anxiolytic, and antioxidant known to remove dangerous acetylcholinesterase enzymes and tau proteins from the brain.
Both of these compounds are non-psychoactive, non-psychotropic, and non-psychotomimetic.
