A number of studies have shown Cannabis to be effective in treating various symptoms of MS such as muscle stiffness and spasms, pain, gastrointestinal issues, insomnia, depression and poor vision. A study conducted at the University of Plymouth found that patients who took an oral Cannabis extract for 12 weeks experienced twice the rate of relief from muscle stiffness and spasms as patients who took a placebo. The study also showed significant improvements in sleep quality and body pain among the CE group (Zajicek, Hobart, Slade, Barnes, & Mattison, 2012).

Cannabis’s sleep-inducing properties have been known for centuries, with modern studies backing up that reputation. A 2008 study sponsored by pharmaceutical company GW Pharma showed that insomnia (an almost universal symptom of MS) patients experienced longer and higher quality sleep when treated with certain Cannabis extracts (Russo, 2008).

The anti-inflammatory properties of the plant is a key factor in slowing the progression of MS, with neural inflammation widely believed to be responsible for nerve damage that causes MS. According to a 2013 study conducted at Tel Aviv University, THC (Delta9-Tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (Cannabidiol)-two of the most important active compounds in marijuana- prevent immune response inflammation of nerve cells (Kozela et al., 2013). This action is also behind Cannabis’s ability to improve digestion and other gastrointestinal functions.

By affecting the optical nerve, inflammation is once again the major culprit in blurring of vision associated with MS. Additionally; Cannabis has been shown to help in rejuvenation of neurons in adults, which suggests that it could reverse MS (Butterfield, 2016).

There is little scientific evidence on which strains work better than others. However, a Cannabis-based pharmaceutical drug developed in the UK known as Sativex and which is highly successful in treating MS-related symptoms uses a 1:1 CBD to THC ratio.
