Considering the many claims in terms of the uses of medicinal marijuana, is yet again another proof that the use of the said herb can be essential for us, more than what we thought. Researchers have recently found that certain cannabinoids do have the ability of reducing the spasticity in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients. However, through the report that has been released by The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, it was shown that although cannabinoids have already proven its efficacy in other areas that may be important to MS patients, they are most likely to be linked to a number of health risks.
Marijuana Wonders For Multiple Sclerosis
According to reports revealed by Source, marijuana is noted to contain over a hundred types of compound. Experts have noted that the THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (Cannabidiol) do have the most medical relevance especially when it comes to multiple sclerosis. On the other hand, in terms of the right prescription, it was found that there is currently no information about the most effective ratio of THC and CBD, which form of ingestion, may it be through smoking or eating, or even how often people inflicted with MS should use cannabis products.
Cannabis Sheds Light As It Offers Hope For MS Patients
In one of her statements reported by Multiple Sclerosis News Today, committee chairwoman Marie McCormick, said that the landscape of marijuana use has been found to have rapidly shifted as more. Furthermore, she adds that more and more states are allegedly legalizing cannabis for the treatment of medical conditions and recreational use. Ultimately, the researchers have highly emphasized that the classification of cannabis as a U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Schedule I substance is what makes it difficult for them to conduct further researches. At the time being, scientific efforts are also hindered by certain difficulties in obtaining the accurate access to the quantity, quality, as well as the type of products that are apparently needed to address specific research questions.
