The use of cannabidiol (CBD) to relieve medical conditions is a hot topic right now. Here’s what people with multiple sclerosis should know about CBD.
Have you tried CBD to help ease your symptoms? If you have, did it help you?

I tried CBD oral drops for pain management. I did not feel that I had any benefit after taking CBD.

How much did you use and how long did you try the CBD before you gave up?

I’ve come to the conclusion that CBD is mostly hype.
Indeed have started a one person campaign on here to emphasis this.
THC [the fun part of marijuana] does lesson pain. It also eases symptoms – certainly with me.
There is no scientific evidence for CBD [as far as I’m aware]. It is also ferociously expensive.

One of my MS symptoms is unintended emotion ( also called PBA in the US), which causes me to burst into laughter for no reason. Not cool if you work in an open plan office.
I wasn’t offered any treatment for it.
After consulting my MS nurse, that it was safe and wouldn’t interfere with my meds (Gilenya), I started taking CBD oil soft gels 3 x per day. My MS nurse was dismissive, saying it wouldn’t work.
After about a year and a half, both my neuro and MS nurse noticed a big improvement and wanted to know what I was taking. They were amazed when I told them CBD oil from Amazon.
There was no ‘Big Bang ‘ moment when it suddenly worked, just a gradual improvement that I hadn’t noticed, but others who hadn’t seen me for a while did notice the change.
CBD might not work for everyone, but it certainly worked for me.

You experience is similar mine. I’ve tried sublingual and topical CBD and neither seemed to be worth the expense. A CBD/THC combo did help ease my spasticity but it made me feel like I was back in college in the late 60s and was too expensive to use regularly.

I don’t suffer from spasticity, but I’ve tried CBD and THC infused products . I wasn’t someone who used cannabis products before this and didn’t feel a difference after trying the infused products at all. I’m curious to see what other studies come out about this.
