MS patients are often prescribed opioids to manage their pain. The side effects of the opioid medication include nausea, vomiting, dizziness, constipation, and constipation.
Opioid users have reduced their opioid use since they began using cannabis. Similar results were seen for antidepressants, sleep medication, and antianxiety drugs prescribed to MS patients.
What is the best way to treat multiple sclerosis with marijuana?
The cannabis’ aroma is mainly due to terpenes, while cannabinoids interact within the body with cannabinoid receptors.
THC and CBD, can be used to stimulate parts of the nervous system that reduce the severity of multiple sclerosis symptoms. MS can cause leg and muscle pain, as well as muscle pain.
These cannabinoids are primarily responsible for medical relief.
Chronic pain is relieved
Chronic pain is the most commonly reported condition of cannabis use. THC and CBD both act on cannabinoid receptors within our bodies to produce certain effects.
THC can also have psychoactive effects. It can also bind to nerves to prevent pain impulses from reaching the brain.
The anti-inflammatory properties in CBD also provide pain relief, but it works in a completely different way.
MS patients often feel nausea from dizziness and side effects. The regulation of nausea and vomiting is affected by changes in the endocannabinoid systems in humans. Cannabinoids found in cannabis can interact with CB1 receptors to stop vomiting. Medical marijuana can be used to treat nausea in MS patients.
The primary non-psychoactive component in cannabis, CBD, can also be used to suppress symptoms such as nausea and vomiting.
MS patients often have poor sleep quality. Because of the pain and difficulty in sleeping, MS patients often experience muscle spasms that disrupt their sleep. Cannabis does offer relief, and many MS patients report better sleep.
THC is a sedative and reduces sleep latency. Patients can sleep longer without being disturbed by muscle spasms.
CBD can also reduce anxiety, allowing a person to relax and allow their natural sleep system to take over.
Best marijuana for multiple sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis patients who have received their medical marijuana cards are excited to go into a dispensary and select the right strain for them.
They find rows upon rows of different marijuana strains when they get to the dispensary.
Migraines can be caused by choosing between Indica or Sativa for MS.
Patients don’t have to face this dilemma.
For MS, Indica or Sativa
There are two kinds of marijuana plants: Indica and Sativa. They look different and deliver a different type of high.
Sativa plants are taller than their Indica counterparts and have a lighter hue of green. Their leaves are also thinner.
Sativa strains are known for their high ‘head high’. Patients feel happier, more productive, and more energetic as a result.
These properties make Sativa strains ideal candidates for treating conditions like fatigue and depression.
Indica strains are known for their ‘body high’. Patients feel sedation and relaxation.
These characteristics make Indica strains for pain, insomnia, and muscle spasms.
Many of the conditions Indica strains treat are associated with the most severe symptoms of MS. Indica strains are excellent for multiple sclerosis.
Hybrid strains are a mixture of Indica and Sativa strains.
Hybrid strains offer the greatest benefits because they combine the best characteristics of both the Indica and Sativa strains.
Patients can enjoy the Indica’s body-numbing effects without its sluggish side effects, while still gaining the same energy as the Sativa.
