Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic autoimmune disease that affects the brain and spinal cord leading to issues with mobility and other severe symptoms. Some of the symptoms that people struggling with MS experience are pain, muscle spasms or stiffness, fatigue, anxiety and depression. There is no cure for MS at this time. However, there is ongoing research for treatments focused on managing symptoms.
CBD has natural anti-inflammatory effects that may help to reduce pain and muscle spasms, as well as ease anxiety, improve sleep and assist with other MS symptoms. If you are considering trying CBD for MS, you should first consult your doctor, especially if you are taking any other medications such as blood thinners.
