Cannabinoids and Multiple Sclerosis
A Literature review
Introduction & Overview
Multiple sclerosis is a disease of the brain and spinal cord caused by demyelination (loss of the insulating sheath) of nerve fibres, believed to be caused by some substance dissolving or breaking-up fatty tissue of the nerve-sheath. The condition is progressive but varies in intensity, with remission of symptoms and relapse commonly reported. Common symptoms include fatigue, balance problems, muscle weakness, incontinence, muscle spasms, pain and tremor.
Cannabinoids and Pain Relief
Pain relief (analgesia) or decreased pain sensitivity (antinociception) are among the most commonly-cited therapeutic effects of smoking cannabis. Although cannabis products have been used for thousands of years to treat pain and other conditions, it was not until the discovery of the ‘cannabis receptor’ in the late 1980s that modern medicine started to take cannabis seriously.
