Multiple Sclerosis, Muscle Spasms and Cannabis Positive Effects

Britain’s House of Lords Select Committee on Science and Technology, published a Nov. 1998 report titled “Cannabis: The Scientific and Medical Evidence,” which stated:

“We have received enough anecdotal evidence to convince us that cannabis almost certainly does have genuine medical applications, especially in treating the painful muscular spasms and other symptoms of MS and in the control of other forms of pain…

We therefore recommend that the Government should take steps to transfer cannabis and cannabis resin from Schedule 1 of the Misuse of Drugs Regulations to Schedule 2, so as to allow doctors to prescribe an appropriate preparation of cannabis, albeit as an unlicensed medicine and on the named-patient basis, and to allow doctors and pharmacists to supply the drug prescribed.”

The Journal of Cannabis Therapeutics (JCT) reported in a 2001 article by researchers at GW Pharmaceuticals:
“Some patients with multiple sclerosis who smoke cannabis [marijuana] report relief of spasm and pain after the second or third puff of a cannabis cigarette. This implies very rapid transit to, and absorption into the central nervous system. The time involved is seconds rather than minutes.”
