Marijuana may Stop Multiple Sclerosis Progress and Pain.


The April 1 2007 edition of Nature Medicine has shown how cannabis might be effective in slowing the onslaught of MS.

By stimulating molecules called cannabinoid receptors THC could relieve symptoms and save nerves from the disease’s damaging effects, possibly halting the disease's progress.

Both CB1 and CB2 receptors on neurons are effected by cannabis stimulation. Researcher have discovered that if they target only the CB2 receptors they can avoid the potential “high” associated with marijuana use.

  what i think  
Marijuana isnt that bad for you, its acsualy good for you in some ways.. if you acsualy research it a lil you'll find out. you'll find that its an anti depresnt, helps with arthritis, stops headacks, (downside is that if you smoke in excess you can have short term memory problems, but thats also why its good for depresstion. but your only have that problem if you abuse it! just like nething.. use it to much and its gonna do something bad. )
some people heads get a bit messed up from it but thats SOME! N thos people shouldnt smoke AT ALl!!! Your motivational tendencys are decressed alot if you use it lots so dont. im not suggesting smoking it in neway, im just letting you know its not as bad as everyone says

lol barely comprehensible ramblings... gotta love it.

I actually know someone who was afflicted with MS upwards to 30 years ago and has smoked pot occasionally throughout having the disease and he has a very mild form of MS. He still has high function although he has some short term memory problems. Overall very healthy.

  Mono's got a point  
I dont know about weed as an antidepressant or head ache cure, but it does have great healing properties, as is slowly being discovered by "authorities". It has been used medicinally (and recreationally, I'm sure) for hundreds of years. I recovered just about completely from crohn's disease with a regimen of exercise, healthy diet, marijuana, and natural remedies recommended by a very thorough naturopath. The doctors ("experts" lol) were insisting on surgically removing my large intestine and putting me on a heavy course of immuno-suppressants and steroids for the rest of my life. So glad I didn't now.

Anyway its important to emphasize this kind of information to counter all the negative spin out there. Well done valk

Great find Valk. We need to get over this stoner crap and legalize marijuana even if it is medicinal at first. The benefits have been proven time and time again yet our Gov't chooses to ignore it.

  But if marijuana is legalised  
what else will governmets do?
  by: DarkAngelJG     04/05/2007 07:43 PM     
i dont know.... possibly worry about things that matter in the world right now? lol
  by: inpherno3   04/05/2007 09:21 PM     
this is a great finding Valk, I had heard before about marijuana's effect on tremors caused by multiple sclerosis [intention tremors]. I have had tremors since I was around 13 but I have only smoked for a few years, what I do know is that it has helped the tremors when they are present, I have other symptoms that are often helped by cannabis such as muscle spasms, but to hear that it could stop damage to the nerves is such great news, maybe they will start research on other types of nervous system diseases.

my message sounded like I have MS, just to make it clear, I don't [not that I know]
  by: the_one   04/05/2007 10:53 PM     
Dark/angel and inpherno3 Start another war , maybe.:)

Drank in milk it does help pain, trust me.

I think U were Stoned when u made ur comment.
I 4 1 used 2 b a pot head back n the 70's. That was back in the good old days
when pot was grown in the good old mother earth and had no chemical influences. The pot out there today is mostly grown in basements and is tainted with chemicals. The high sucks a few tokes and u r just blown away. It will also give u a hangover. Back n the 70's I never had a hang over from smoking weed. These days Jim Beam Black is my choice of poison. Cheers!

the world needs to shake off the DEA and all American Policing groups, off their back, so then we can really see what is bad for you and what isnt. For the American's DEA the marijuana is a communist, cause they cant make profit from it in a controlled manner. The seeds can be grown by anyone, as god intended it to be, for it to be free.

All in the name of the Empire, all of the world must be miserable and drink alcohol and smoke heavly poisonous tobacco. All empires are evil, and we are in a matrix of Mass Deception.

I don't know what your talking about. I may not have been alive in the 70's but I know many of the growers in my area. The only "Chemicals" they use may be a little C02 treatment to the soil or some plant fertilizer. From what I hear around thats pretty much what other growers use too. Sure the weed is strong but a hangover? Maybe a little tired but thats it.
  by: xufeelinlukyx   04/06/2007 04:49 PM     
I always feel great the next morning, and I get more done. I start off being a little tired, but that ends and I'm much more focused. Until about mid-day when I'm ready to go home anyway.

There really aren't that many chemicals used for growing. In some cases there are more harmful chemicals being used to grow the vegetables we buy at the grocery store.

The pot today is stronger than it used to be, because people are using different growing methods than before. It has become more of a science.

"But if marijuana is legalised

tax it. people pay hefty alcohol taxes, i'm sure cannabis could be put to use as well (help repay the national debt anyone, universal health care anyone?).

we can replace much deforesting with cannabis farming. We have the land. You can make cars out of hemp as henry ford showed us as well and fuel them with hemp as well! From what i can tell, hemp it is better for the environment all around. Not to mention the anti-cancerous agents contained within the cannabis proven to hinder the growth of and even shrink the size of tumors (don't tell anyone tho). Ever wonder why we don't have cannabis studies in the US anymore?

You're not supposed to know this:

Cannabis destroys cancer cells... reveals research at Barts and The London, Queen Mary's School of Medicine and Dentistry

oops shouldn't have shown you that, now i have to kill you.
