Cannabis Effective for Easing MS Symptoms, but Not for Slowing Progression
Although research conducted in a large UK study failed to prove cannabis effective for slowing the progression of Multiple Sclerosis (MS), patients reported marijuana helpful for relieving symptoms of the disease. Idrasil believes its standardized 25 mg full-spectrum cannabis tablets are ideal for MS patients who prefer all-natural remedies that don’t require smoking and deliver consistent results.

Cannabis has not proven itself an effective drug for slowing the progression of Multiple Sclerosis (MS), but it is effective for relieving serious symptoms, according to a report published earlier this week by researchers at the Peninsula Medical School in Plymouth (UK) and covered by BBC News.
Marijuana and cannabis-based medications have been recommended by doctors and used by MS patients for decades. Mark Wagner, MD, who was not involved in the UK study says, “In my experience, cannabinoids ease muscle spasticity symptoms in MS patients.”
Medical marijuana resource Doobons.com, which supports the advancement of marijuana as an all-natural medication, says Idrasil’s standardized 25 mg full-spectrum cannabis pill is ideal for treating MS patients’ symptoms.
Doobons says that, unlike raw cannabis or cannabis-based medications that vary widely in potency, Idrasil’s consistent formula enables MS patients to tightly control the amount of medication they consume, so they can achieve predictable results every time.
Idrasil is not only effective for treating MS symptoms, it is effective for treating a wide variety of ailments and conditions such as AIDS and wasting syndrome, cancer, fibromyalgia, Crohn’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, glaucoma, chronic pain, Parkinson’s disease, sleep disorders, anxiety and depression. Since it is not addictive like opiates, Idrasil is also used in the treatment of chemical dependency and withdrawal symptoms.
For pain patients, Idrasil is an excellent first step to pain abatement. The use of cannabinoids over opiates eliminates the risks of opioid overdose, an important concern to all caregivers and their liable parties. It also doesn’t cause the side-effects experienced with opiate treatments.
C3 Patients Association, makers of Idrasil, carefully extracts the full-spectrum of phytocannabinoids using a proprietary technology that does not involve the use of oils, chemicals or other additives. The extract is then carefully measured into tablets, so every pill delivers the same amount of medication.
“Until now, medications like Marinol have been made from synthetic tetrahydrocannabinol (THC),” said John at Doobons.com. “Idrasil contains the full spectrum of phytocannabinoids, which is more effective than THC alone and is better at reducing the symptoms associated with many serious illnesses.”
Phytocannabinoids are the naturally occurring cannabinoids present in cannabis. The most prevalent of these are THC, Cannabidiol (CBD) and Cannabinol (CBN), but there are actually over 85 phytocannabinoids present in cannabis, and many of these have known medicinal qualities, according to Idrasil.
