Marijuana For Your MS Symptoms. What Are Your Thoughts And Experiences?

While it may still seem taboo to some, more and more people who suffer from MS are having their symptoms alleviated by the use of marijuana. I wrote about this, many ages ago, when it was prescribed to me (https://multiplesclerosis.net/living-with-ms/marijuana-the-story-of-a-skeptic-turned-believer) but it’s definitely time to bring it up again. Times have changed and it is more easily obtainable for some (even recreationally in some states) than it used to be (though we have a very long way to go there). I have found that it can be helpful for several of my symptoms. In particular, my spasms and pain seem to benefit from the use of marijuana and while it doesn’t eliminate those issues for me, it lessens them and makes them more bearable.

Have you used marijuana to combat your MS symptoms? If so, let’s hear about it (and feel free to mention the ways you use it and even what strains you use as those can greatly impact your results)! Any other thoughts on the subject are welcome as well!

  1. I live in TN. and as of now, it is not legal. I know of course I could buy off of so many people but Im scared to do that. There is not one person that I trust to get it from. I am a 56 yr. old female and I have not done it since I was a teenager. I wish they would legalize , its stupid because people are doing it anyway. Make it so it is safe for the ones who need it. I have ppms

    1. Thank you , many many people share your sentiments!

    2. Try Nashville. Not all taco trucks sell tacos... Hidden in plain sight

  2. Hello Devin. I am told marijuana is great for MS. I did ask my neurologist about it and we discussed it in length. He left the choice to me. Marijuana is illegal in the state of Georgia unless medically necessary. Anything else carries a criminal offense. It’s easy to obtain but since I’m still a nurse I chose not to go that way for I am still licensed and do remote work periodically. They should legalize in every state for there is documentation and clinical trials that prove it has uses in many disease processes.

    1. Thanks, ! Sadly, we still have a long way to go for legalization. We are making progress though!

  3. Yes and it's incredible, much better than anything I have tried. Thank you for your article and bringing this up.

    1. Thank you !

  4. It helps me somewhat, but like muscle relaxers,to have decent pain relief, it takes an amount that makes me really stupid.

    1. I recently got some homemade gummies. Had one last night. Probably the mix with the muscle relaxers and a few beers, but I totally passed out, even after having a fatigue drug provigil. So I'm fixing to try again

    2. I've been there ! Edibles can definitely sneak up on you, but once you figure them out, they can be such a great method for taking it in!
