THC and CBD are the 2 cannabinoids that are by far the most in volume and that everyone talks about, but the key is the combinations of the many other cannabinoids.You can smoke or vape MMJ, but there are caveats.Both smoking and vaping means an impact on your lungs. Smoking cigarettes is proven to speed up MS progression -- and you don't want that. It stands to reason that smoking weed isn't going to be a good thing.And vaping means that commerially-oriented, for-profit capitalist companies are gaming what ingredients to put into the vaping crap, with profit -- not health -- being their primary concern. IMO what's worse is that the vape stuff is often just made up of chemically-extracted CBD or THC and is lacking the huge variety of other cannabinoids.Thus, I'd recommend a "whole plant extract" to get the full range of various cannabinoids.The problem is that some MMJ "dispensaries" are just business fronts looking to try out models for when the state eventually legalizes marijuana. That's what the "medical dispensaries" were doing in my state in my opinion. (I'm not sure about PA.)The other problems with MMJ dispensaries is that they treat weed like a marketing gimmick -- constantly switching between various new strains, all labeled with tooty-fruity marketing-driven names, all done to generate hype and con customers into chasing "what's new."GW Pharmaceuticals in the UK makes [url=http://https://www.gwpharm.com/healthcare-professionals/sativex]Sativex[/url], an actual whole plant marijuana medicine which is sprayed into your mouth. That's been proven by science to work and is legal in places like the UK and Canada. But unfortunately our out-of-touch, non-representative-of-We-the-People federal gov't prevents that medicine from being sold here in the US.As others have mentioned, you can get edibles and use MMJ in other forms. Things like marijuana "hash oil" you can wipe under your tongue and it works well. And if you're a baker or like cooking you have all sorts of options.Look for whole plant extracts. You'll note that different strains have differing impacts. Some will work for spasticity, some will aid in sleep, while others will generate energy in ways that are very effective.Since our gov't hinders doctors and science from doing real research -- the US gov't still falsely claims marijuana has no medicinal value -- you're going to have to do research on yourself.But hey, you've got MS. You should get used to do "research" on yourself. :-)Hi, I've had ms ever since I remember and finally got scared 22 yrs ago. I'm really wishing to have medical marijuana that covers muscle spasms ,chronic pain and bouts of so much else. I don't like getting a high. currently using 1 to 1 cbd/thc oil..its okay but quickly fades. would love to cover my constant pain. I'm currently reducing my dosage of ultram that I've used for 22 yrs.. I'm back to not being able to walk much and doctor doesn't seem to worried.our area has only two neurologist and both are basically hard to deal with. I wish old Dr.didn't retire but he needed to. 😕Thank you for your information!
