CBD for MS

Post by USHearts » Wed Apr 26, 2017 1:56 pm

*I found another thread discussing this but it was from 2014 so I thought I should start fresh.

I live in California where medical marijuana has been legal for a while but I'd still never heard of it as a potential means of alleviating MS symptoms. A friend shared this article with me on Facebook last night about CBD and MS:

I was curious about this because CBD is the non-psychoactive part of the marijuana and sometimes I just don't want to deal with the haziness. But I was especially interested in the relief of muscle discomfort section since CBD oil is non-addictive. Has anyone here had any experiences, good or bad, with CBD oil? I think I'm going to try it regardless but I just want to know what to expect, if anything.

I took it for about 1 1/2 years (Charlotte's Web) and stopped taking it about 2 months ago. I thought it was helping but have not noticed any differences since stopping so I don't know if it was really helping me or not. It is certainly worth trying in case it does help you. Please let us know....

Yeah, it doesn't seem like there's much risk involved so, as far as I can tell anyway, it doesn't seem like it can hurt. I'll let you know if I notice any difference.

Vaporized THC worked best for me back when I had access to it in California. It calmed my shaking hands and helped me anticipate my bladder's hijacking of my attention.

I recently tried THC oil (which is vaporized. It helped me sleep (kind of) but otherwise has had no benefit to me and I am not using it any longer. It seems, like every treatment, it helps some but not all...
