    Hi. I'm curious if anyone has tried this or heard of somebody trying it. And I don't know if it's the juicing of the stems and leaves or of the cannabis bud itself. I know you can find lots of links online
    but one can find a link to anything online. I want to know if somebody here has tried it and whether or not it produced any discernible changes regarding the MS.

    Thanks.

    Hi seenjo11 et al, Here's a link to a video on juicing! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7xPmR8j4plw As I understand, from some research I have done, you have to juice the leaves of the cannabis plant, RAW. The best way to get the most CBD's molecules into your system is RAW. Don't heat it; that means, smoke it, "vap" it or cook it! I am more interested in learning more about using natural medicine a.k.a Holistic, rather than take any synthetic "Big Pharma" drug to treat any of my ailment's; MS related or not. Period. I posted a discussion about Cannabis Research in Feb. No comments...yet. Very disappointing... It's under the discussion of: Cannabinoid/CBD Cannabis Research Has anyone with MS (any type) been using High CBD to help reverse myelin damage? I've been doing a lot of research on the medicinal uses of Cannabis and I've been stumbling on a lot of positive outcomes using Cannabis for; spasticity, pain, anxiety, depression and even reversing neurological damage. I am a nurse and only use the most credible research sources. So far I have only been able to find studies outside the US. I do not like the effects THC has on me because it exasperates my pain but I'm interested in high CBD products (yes, hard to find because Cannabis plants have been bred to have a "High" psychological effect:-( ) Anyone else interested in this "Natural", i.e. nature made, remedy to help their MS symptom's and possibly protect and reverse neurological damage?

    I was diagnosed 1 year ago. This is my first time really looking at this site. it looks very informative! I am very suprised more people are not interested in the medical marijuana ! I for one would much rather take something natural than pharmaceutical medicine! I have done a little bit of research on this topic myself as well as my other half( he's the brains of the family! Lol) I agree that it would be better to eat than smoke it. I am very interested if anyone has tried this and has any input. I am sad to say that I have random UA's at work and have been told I could loose my job if I tested positive. I am very willing to fight this with my work but would like to know if it even works. I also might mention I also have 2 herniated discs in my back which cause a great deal of nerve pain. I take gabupentin for this. Thanks for your time!:)

    Hello new2ms101

    Thanks for the link. I'm a pretty avid juicer already so 'raw' is nothing new. And I'm with you: not a big fan of the so called 'traditional' methods of MS mollification inspired by the big pharma crowds.

    I was not aware that CBDs could potentially reverse myelin damage. I have heard more discussion about their effectiveness in taming/tempering MS symptoms and associated neuropathic pain. And there was something recently (more recent than this post's origination date) about medicinal MJ and multiple sclerosis specifically.

    And yes - I am interested in this 'natural' route. Any info you can provide or direct one to is appreciated.

    Hi all,

    my wife was diagnosed with MS a year ago. We live in France and decided for now not to go with standard care Copaxone/interferone/etc. but changed diet (no animal fats, Dr. Swank etc.) and lifestyle. We are now considering to start juicing but it would require some significant investment in a grow setup. Can anyone tell me, how many squaremeters of plant we would need to grow on a consitent basis throught the year to be able to consume 1000mg/day of CBD-a based on an average 7% CBD concentration in a strain such as CBD Mango Haze (from CBD crew). I understand that these strains are not 100% stable in their CBD ratio yet, but I believe growing from 20 (?) seeds, and cloning each one of them over and over, then mixing the juice of them at harvest time before freezing it, would provide 5%+ CBD-a on average, correct? we know, the best would be to analyze each plant for its THC/CBD profile and then just keep one motherplant with the best CBD/THC profile to clone from it, but in France such labs don't exist yet unfortunately. If I estimate correctly, we would need to operate about 2-3 squaremeters worth of plants consistently. Does this sound reasonable?

    Thanks for your help

    I have been reading about the newest studies that are showing some improvement of symptoms with the use of medical marijuana. My main concern would be this - I don't want to get high. Does the newest THC spray or concentrated capsules give you the feeling of being high, like smoking does? I know there are some strains that have lower THC and higher CBD that can give you the benefits without making you feel high ("Charlotte's Web is one that comes to mind). I am definitely hoping they will continue to test the medical benefits.

    Hi Eryncameron,

    have you been able to try anything with cannabinoids? I'm having a lot of success with indica and sativa capsules.

    The euphoric effects of THC come from Decarboxylating it...meaning, heating it.  So, consuming cannabis raw will not get you high.  http://www.marijuanagrowershq.com/decarboxylating-cannabis-turning-thca-into-thc/
