The definitive marijuana guide from CannabisUK
The perceived effects of smoked cannabis on patients with multiple sclerosis
Fifty-three UK and 59 USA people with multiple sclerosis
(MS) answered anonymously the first questionnaire on cannabis use and MS.
From 97 to 30% of the subjects reported cannabis improved (in descending
rank order): spasticity, chronic pain of extremities, acute paroxysmal phenomenon,
tremor, emotional dysfunction, anorexia/weight loss, fatigue states, double
vision, sexual dysfunction, bowel and bladder dysfunctions, vision dimness,
dysfunctions of walking and balance, and memory loss. The MS subjects surveyed
have specific therapeutic reasons for smoking cannabis. The survey findings
will aid in the design of a clinical trial of cannabis or cannabinoid administration
