Cannabidiol (CBD) used to Treat MS

Post by vw35qrt » Sun Oct 27, 2013 4:24 pm

I've read some positive articles showing the potential of CBD derived from the Marijuana plant in treating MS. CBD does not produce any psychotropic effects, but may provide some help in dealing with inflammation. Do you know if a CBD product is available and where to purchase it? Dixie Botanicals (http://dixiebotanicals.com/frequently-asked-questions/)
has a Hemp based product that apparently contains CBD, but I don't know if it is in sufficient quantities to help with the inflammation associated with MS. Any help in this area

I'm also curious about this, but haven't tried it.

My best guess is that availability would depend first on what state or country you are in, whether medical use has been approved or not.

I also found another hemp based product, which has only Cannabidiol (no THC, so no psychoactive ingredient). Actually it is a chewing gum: https://www.canchewgum.com/

This one has 10mg CBD per piece, wonder if that would be enough. Apparently they serve since earlier this year, and can be purchased around the globe (myself living in Spain). Wondering if I should give it a try.
