Default Marijuana/Cannabis and Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease where the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissue in the central nervous system, primarily the brain and spinal cord. Specifically, the disease causes the immune system to attack myelin, a fatty substance forming a protective, insulating sheath on nerve fibers. Scar tissue, known as sclerosis, forms due to the myelin damage.


Medical cannabis for multiple sclerosis has some specific effects that relate to the disease. Some of those effects include:
  • Anti-inflammatory: MS causes inflammation related to the myelin damage. That inflammation and resulting damage cause the physical symptoms felt by MS patients, including motor control issues, weakness and spasms. Marijuana has an anti-inflammatory property that may reduce immune response and inflammation.
  • Pain relief: Pain is often a symptom of MS. That pain can be debilitating. Weed helps relieve pain, which can benefit MS patients who suffer from discomfort.
  • Antispasmodic: Another effect of cannabis beneficial to MS patients is the ability to reduce the frequency and severity of muscle spasticity.
