Study: Cannabis Eases Muscle Stiffness of Multiple Sclerosis

A decent-sized group of multiple sclerosis patients reported less muscle stiffness using weed than they did using placebo, the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry reports Oct. 8 in “Multiple Sclerosis and Extract of Cannabis: results of the MUSEC trial“. The ancient herbal remedy doesn’t work for everyone, and side effects may include highness, but that’s better than a lot of other side effects we know of.

The important part about this study is it used actual weed on a lot of real people, not some synthetic cannabinoid on cells, or a mouse, or a monkey. The US strongly frowns upon such cannabis+human treatment protocols. This study went down in the UK.
