Multiple sclerosis (disseminated encephalomyelitis – ED) is a chronic neurological disease of the central nervous system (CNS). It is also known colloquially as MS. It usually occurs between the ages of 20 and 40 and affects over two-thirds of women. Unfortunately, there is currently no exact cause or cure for the disease, which is thought to be caused by an autoimmune reaction. It is thought to be caused by an autoimmune reaction, where inflammation (lesions) in the brain and spinal cord damage the nerve sheaths, preventing the transmission of signals and causing neurological damage.

In MS. inflammation are the cause of all disease and symptoms. The inflammatory foci’ location in the brain and spinal cord is crucial to the type of symptoms, causing the corresponding symptoms, complaints, and disability. This interferes with the transmission of electrical impulses between the various nerve cells and body cells.
The way the inflammation occurs, the timing and extent of recurrence, and the disease’s progression vary from patient to patient. For the affected person as well as their family, the disease and its unpredictability mean a great deal of uncertainty about the future, and understandably provoke a great deal of anxiety.
MS is the best known and most common neurological disease in the western world. For example, fewer people in Africa and South America are affected by multiple sclerosis than in Central Europe and the USA. It is estimated that around 2.5 million people worldwide are affected by MS.
Environmental factors are also thought to increase the risk of developing MS. A number of studies has rejected the hypothesis that MS is inherited. Typical symptoms of MS include visual disturbances, fatigue (i.e. unusual tiredness), dizziness, unsteady gait, impaired coordination and balance, pain, difficulty concentrating, incontinence, and convulsions, ufthof phenomenon (disturbance of the sensation of heat) and impaired sensitivity.
Can CBD help with multiple sclerosis?
Multiple sclerosis is a chronic inflammatory disease with a very wide range of symptoms. It includes pain, musculoskeletal disorders, visual and speech impairments and psychological stress disorders. In addition, MS can destabilise the entire digestive system.
Multiple sclerosis also often causes psychiatric disorders. Depression and anxiety are very common symptoms in patients with MS (80%). Depression can also be caused as a “secondary illness” (due to an inability to cope well with the disease) or in response to foci of inflammation.
CBD can relieve and even block many of the aforementioned symptoms. Cannabidiol, one of the most effective and potent cannabinoids found in cannabis, is versatile and non-psychoactive (non-intoxicating). Versatility in nutritional supplements is important, especially in the case of diseases such as MS.
CBD works in direct conjunction with the body’s endocannabinoid system. This is part of our nervous system. Because CBD is primarily anti-inflammatory and analgesic, cannabidiol shows promise for MS pain.
Furthermore, CBD can inhibit foci of inflammation. However, this has not been medically proven. CBD can also intervene quickly and reliably in the nervous system directly against the pain and fearful flare-ups of multiple sclerosis, an incurable disease that not only causes a lot of pain, but also greatly impairs quality of life. CBD cannot cure multiple sclerosis, but it can reduce pain and side effects. CBD is not a cure for multiple sclerosis, but it can reduce pain and side effects.
There are many reports on the internet of MS patients who have found that CBD has helped to alleviate their MS relapses. CBD can also help you lose weight.
CBD is particularly effective against the typical MS fatigue. For example, taking a few drops of CBD in the morning can help to reduce and minimise bouts of fatigue and give you a renewed quality of life. Alternatively, CBD can be taken directly at the onset of an ‘attack of fatigue’, and in most cases the effect is immediate.
Taking CBD can really improve the general state of MS, so that the joy of living, and therefore the quality of life, is greatly improved, the general resilience and confidence is increased, resulting in a holistic general state of well-being and a better balance between body, mind and soul.
Although CBD does not have the same effect on everyone, especially in MS, it is considered a good and reliable treatment, legal, purely herbal and without side effects. CBD is also a dietary supplement.
