Here at Cannaisseur Brands, we encourage the medicinal use of cannabis because of the countless possibilities and benefits it has for improving your health. We’ve told you a little bit about how it can help from the outside, but it also proves to be highly effective in treating various diseases from within.

We want to share four amazing ways cannabis can help treat Multiple Sclerosis (MS), which is a neurodegenerative autoimmune disease. In other words, it’s a disease in the nervous system that directly affects the brain and the spinal cord. It damages the material surrounding and protecting nerve cells, the myelin sheath, causing blockage and delayed messages between your brain and body. But we’re here to tell you which properties of cannabis can help fight against MS symptoms.

 I. Anti-inflammatory

A primary symptom of MS is inflammation of neural tissue. Fortunately, one of the many reasons we encourage the medicinal use of cannabis  is  the  anti-inflammatory  property of cannabinoids. Due to MS, the immune cells  attack  the central nervous system, leading to inflammation of the myelin sheaths.When activated, these immune cells release cytokines, pro-inflammatory proteins, which cause extensive inflammation in the brain. Cannabidiol (CBD), a non-psychoactive compound of the cannabis plant, can deactivate the immune system to prevent these attacks on the nervous system.

2. Spasticity

In spasticity, the muscles become stiff or rigid with exaggerated, jerky reflexes of the tendons. This condition interferes  with most forms of locomotion: walking, balance, speech, involuntary spasms, as well as for movements requiring precision or balance. CBD works by mimicking the body’s own biochemicals – called endocannabinoids and bio-chemically help balance the system by modulating neuro­ receptors. In the case of spasticity, muscular nerve misfiring is halted or reduced in many cases.

3. Pain Relieving 

The pain caused by Multiple Sclerosis  is the most common and debilitating symptom patients experience. And just as inflammation and pain come as a package, CBD also helps to relieve the intense pain.The inflammation of the neural tissue leads the tissues in the body to swell up, become aggravated and result in deterioration.

Nerve sells will send pain signals throughout the body as the tissues breakdown.Through its ability to directly reduce immune responses and cease inflammation, cannabis is able to help reduce pain for MS sufferers

4. Aids Digestion

A common, but not widely-known symptom in Multiple Sclerosis patients takes place in the stomach. Because 70% of the body’s immune cells can be found in our gut, gastrointestinal issues such as abdominal pain, constipation, abnormal bowel movements, and problems with digestion occur. As afore­mentioned, CBD engages with the immune  system to calm the inflammation stirring up in the abdominal area.

CBD acts as bridges between the body and the brain, bridges that have been destroyed by MS. When connected to the right location, CBD can aid in the regulation of any bodily system. As CBD connects to CB2 receptors in the peripheral nervous system, which controls functions in the stomach, it works as an anti-inflammatory agent for your body to allow for a relaxed digestive system.
