Multiple sclerosis is the most common neurological disease in young adults. It afflicts more than 350,000 people in the United States.
In clinical trials of smoked cannabis, patients with MS experienced pain intensity that decreased by at least 30% for all participants.
The American Academy of Neurology found strong evidence to support the use of cannabis-based treatments for MS-related muscle problems. The review found that oral cannabis extract does help with muscle spasms.
Multiple Sclerosis is a common nervous system disease that can affect the brain and spinal cord. It is a lifelong condition that can sometimes cause serious disability, although it can also be mild.
Patients with this type of MS develop symptoms that respond to treatments and then resolve. These episodes may last weeks to years.
In primary progressive MS, symptoms gradually worsen and accumulate over several years. There are no periods of remission, but there are times when people experience periods where their condition appears to stabilize.
Medical marijuana has been legal in Louisiana for years, but accessing it hasn’t always been easy. However, in 2016, legislators created a comprehensive medical cannabis program, and new bills in 2018 and 2020 expanded it significantly. Today, Louisiana residents experiencing a wide range of chronic and debilitating conditions can find comfort in medicinal cannabis.
The body’s peripheral system is the main communication pathway between the brain, the spine, and the rest of the body.
Damage to these nerves results in a painful chronic condition called peripheral neuropathy, which often means that pain flares up without warning.
About one in every five Americans suffer from this common condition, typically experiencing burning sensations or sharp pains that happen periodically.
These pains can occur at any location in the body, without warning, and the neuropathic pain tends to worsen over time.
It is vital for patients to find effective treatments to alleviate pain and reduce other symptoms, and one option is medical marijuana for neuropathic pain.
Since MS is an autoimmune disease, this means that your body’s defense system attacks your nervous system by mistake. Hard scars called sclerosis are formed that interfere with nerve signals.
Mental health issues, like excessive stress, can aggravate the symptoms of MS because it can lead to an increase in hormones such as adrenaline and glucocorticoids that negatively impact the immune system.
According to patients who suffer from MS, the most bothersome symptoms are the mental ones. These cognitive changes affect up to three-fourths of people with MS because the changes make it harder for them to think clearly and quickly.
Patients who experience the “MS hug”, which is an awful flare, can possibly be hospitalized because they feel like their chest is being crushed, causing shortness of breath.
MS can cause these challenges and learning how to manage the symptoms can make life easier for patients.
Eases sleep problems: Some evidence suggests that marijuana or its active compounds (cannabinoid) may ease sleep problems in some people with MS, fibromyalgia, and certain other medical conditions.
Symptom relief: The University of Rochester MS Center in New York showed that medical marijuana appears to have a role in managing the symptoms of MS through direct symptom relief.
Although there are many conventional medications to address symptoms, they often come with undesirable side effects. Thankfully, patients with Multiple Sclerosis can qualify for medical marijuana.
Sign up process is simple and easy to do. After answering a few questions and speaking to a Doctor I was on my way to a new and exciting way for pain and anxiety relief.
It was a very easy process!! I recommend using tele leaf to anyone who is trying to obtain their medical marijuana card!!!
Teleleaf was very professional and helpful to assist me in my recertification.
They are a great help to me. The pain I feel on a everyday basis can become overwhelming but with he help of Medicis I’ve been up walking and not some much on edge with the pain. They do help those who really are in need. The pain pills my docs gave written out for me was all wrong. Made me sick to my stomach. They had side effects like depression and anxiety along a slew of others. I’m better off with the edibles.
Easiest doctor appointment i have ever had. I totally delayed doing this for two years -so don’t let anxiety ruin it for you and do it!
The process was so easy, less than a minute for my renewal! The doctor was very nice and helpful. I have been very pleased with Teleleaf for the past 2 years.
Very friendly with great communication and quick visit. Don’t know why I waited so long to sign up!
The Dr. visit was prompt and pleasant however the Medicine Cabinet did not follow up with a notification. I had to call them a week later to find the recommendation had been received and they had failed to notifiy me.
It was the easiest process I’ve ever experienced. Thank you so much!!
