Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s own immune system attacks the central nervous system causing inflammation, muscle spasm and loss of motor coordination, as well as muscle weakness. Over years, the disease progresses, and MS patients can become permanently disabled. Multiple sclerosis is typically a progressive disease and it can be fatal. Medical cannabis can be very helpful for MS. According to the US National Multiple Sclerosis Society, 200 people are diagnosed every week with MS in the United States, and it most frequently targets those 20 to 40 years of age. Multiple Sclerosis is particularly prevalent in the Pacific Northwest.
