CBD is known for its ability to relieve symptoms such as Chronic pain, inflammation, anxiety, insomnia and much more. We think of CBD as this miracle product and for many a final relief in the never-ending symptoms we feel related to different medical issues.
There are so many reasons why we turn to CBD, either for relief or supplemental use. Learning about CBD and its ability to help many different medical conditions is important information to know. In fact, CBD is known to help people who suffer from Multiple sclerosis (MS). MS is when your immune system attacks a fatty material called myelin, which wraps around your nerve fibers to protect them. Without this outer shell, your nerves become damaged. The damage means your brain can’t send signals through your body correctly. Some of the symptoms that occur with MS include pain, tingling, numbness and an electric shock feeling when moving your head or neck that travels down your spine or into your arms and legs.
Unfortunately, there is no cure for MS however there are medications that could help ease symptoms as well as slow down progression of the disease. Using medications to treat MS could come with side effects as well as long term use complications. Unlike CBD, medications can be very harsh on our body, which makes CBD a more appealing alternative for many. CBD is non-psychoactive, non-addictive and does not cause any side effects nor is it harsh on the body. CBD provides relief for those who suffer from diseases such as MS.
The human body produces certain cannabinoids on its own. It also has two receptors for cannabinoids, called the CB1 receptors and CB2 receptors.CB1 receptors are present throughout the body, but many are in the brain.The CB1 receptors in the brain deal with coordination and movement, pain, emotions, and mood, thinking, appetite, memories, and other functions.CB2 receptors are more common in the immune system.
Research shows CBD has improved spasticity-related symptoms and pain in patients with MS. CBD could be a very helpful alternative however it is important to consult with your Healthcare Provider if you are currently taking any medications before consuming CBD. At AHS we have the very best team to help you find the right product and recommended dosage specifically for your needs.
