Hundreds of thousands of people in the this country suffer from numerous sclerosis. But I didn’t know very much about MS until the year that my sibling was diagnosed. It is seen most often in women between 20 and 40 and my sister Sheila was twenty-eight when she learned the real reason behind the numbness and tingling in her extremities. Multiple sclerosis is a disease of the nervous system and it affects the brain and spinal cord. My sibling has sensory and vision problems, balance troubles, fatigue and tremors; There is currently no known cure for MS. If the disease is left untreated, it can lead to paralysis, epilepsy and mental problems. Sheila has tried medications to slow the progression, prevent relapses, and control her symptoms. But all of the antidepressants, anxiolytics and muscle relaxants have caused her nausea, vomiting, back pain and flu-like symptoms. And if Sheila continues taking these prescriptions, she’s looking at potential liver and nerve destruction, hair loss and more. Since I was hoping to supply my sibling some hope and relief, I researched treatments with cannabinoids. See, more and more studies are proving cannabinoids can be effective at inhibiting inflammation, reducing spasticity, and controlling neuropathic pain. Best of all, there are minimal side effects. Sheila is noticing an amazing improvement in her health and well-being through a combination of THC and CBD. These two cannabinoids together can combat her symptoms, while THC kills proinflammatory cells, CBD suppresses the function of certain blood cells that cause extreme inflammation. Plus, the CBD lessens the psychoactive effects of the THC. So Sheila isn’t dealing with any high sensation while being treated.
