Can CBD Oil help with Multiple Sclerosis?
Cannabidiol (CBD) has a variety of therapeutic effects especially for those with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Hemp CBD oil helps with pain and muscle spasms. There are only trace amounts of THC in a full spectrum CBD Oil made from Hemp. Because there is such a tiny amount (barely detectable) of THC, Hemp based CBD Oil is available without a prescription and does not cause intoxication. Many people who have used hemp CBD oil say it has changed their lives for the better.

CBD Oil for MS Patient Reviews and Stories
The following quotes are from people with multiple sclerosis who have tried CBD Oil.
“Consistency has been the important factor to me. When I take it every day, or even close to every day, my body is much better off. Less pain, less spasticity, and less fatigue. Hard to believe, even for me. This is one of the few things I’ve taken where I’ve had multiple people come up and asked me if anything changed, because they can see that I am out more and I am more active. I’ve been using this for close to eight months now and I can honestly say it’s made a huge difference in my life.”
” In Oct 2013 I took 15 drops of the CBD tincture a day until it ran out; I think about Dec. In March 2014 a follow up MRI (not related to my own experiment w/ the CBD oil) stated NO NEW LESION’S AND NO ACTIVE DEMYLENATING LESION’S! I am not on any MS disease modifying drugs. Just SoluMedrol from Dec. 2013 to Aug. 2013. So the MRI was not within this time frame. This is remarkable and I need to help other’s, MS patient’s, Care Giver’s, Neurologist’s, Researcher’s and Politian’s…know about this! HOW???”
