    Katexco Pharmaceuticals, a medical cannabis company, is aiming to develop products targeting the endocannabinoid and nicotine receptors in the brain. Click here to find out more about these products.

    Are you aware of the benefits of medical cannabis? Have you ever tried it?

    CBD oil has helped my spasticity and my sleeping.

    I think it’s important to note, however, that this particular company seems to be far from having an actual product. It’s just in the research stage.

      Yes I tried it. CBD oil is a great substance to use for MS patients.

      In 2014  it was approved in Europe as a treatment to improve quality of MS patients life by the EU. Till now it’s not approved yet by the USFDA !

      Regards.

      Irina,

      The about half an eye-dropper of the oil, under my tongue at bedtime, has relaxed my legs a little. They seem to jerk and cramp less, allowing me to sleep better. It doesn’t always work well, but it does seem to help most of the time. But, a small bottle costs about $80 and isn’t covered by any insurance here in the US.

    Ed, so glad you are getting some relief using CBD.      Until you said something I had not paid attention to the fact that I’ve not had knee jerks in the middle of the night for quite awhile.    Hmmm

    I do like sleeping.
