What Causes Multiple sclerosis and muscle spasms?

Buy Medical Marijuana Online

Marijuana has been helping patients cope with different diseases for years now with its undeniable medical benefits apart from the recreational benefits that also bring pleasure to patients. Because of how great the impact of medical marijuana is on patients, countries have legalized it either in usage, cultivation, and possession. Among the many diseases that marijuana manages is multiple sclerosis or MS. In fact, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, considers the potential of medical marijuana to help lessen the pain of MS patients, and with advanced technology nowadays, patients can now buy medical marijuana online to help treat their symptoms.

Causes of Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis or MS is an autoimmune disease of the nervous system resulting from a malfunction of the immune system causing inflammation in the nerves of the brain, brain stem, spinal cord, and optic nerves. A lot of patients who suffer from multiple sclerosis experience stiff muscles and muscle spasms, happening mostly in the arms and legs which restricts mobility. Muscle spasms happen when there is a sudden involuntary contraction of the muscles which can last from a few seconds to 15 minutes or more and may reoccur multiple times before it goes away. Currently, there is no known cure for multiple sclerosis but research shows that marijuana may help reduce muscle fatigue and pain.

The causes of Multiple Sclerosis is still unknown. What happens is, the immune system destroys the myelin which is a protective coating of neural fibers that leads to scars (sclerosis). Now, without this protective layer, the nerve cells’ ability to transmit impulses away from the cell body is impaired or lost which results in several symptoms such as: 

  • Blindness,
  • fatigue, 
  • depression, 
  • loss of voluntary muscle function, and 
  • muscle stiffness and spasms.

There are studies that have shown cannabidiol (a main chemical component of marijuana) having anti-inflammatory, antiemetic, and neuroprotective properties that may be beneficial to those with MS. A survey hosted by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society showed that about 66% of people with MS are using medical marijuana as a treatment. Marijuana helps by decreasing pain and inflammation which is partly responsible for muscle fatigue. The pain experienced by patients with MS can also lead to sleep disruption but the active compounds in medical marijuana called cannabinoids, help MS patients by improving the quality and duration of their sleep. The mood-enhancing properties of medical marijuana also act as an antidepressant for patients with MS who are getting depressed because of their impaired mobility, in which studies have shown indirect evidence that medical marijuana may improve the mobility of patients with MS. However not all marijuana contains the right amount of cannabidiol potent enough to provide the relief MS patients yearn for which is why we recommend them to buy medical marijuana online to be able to talk to experts, fellow users and to ensure the availability of the strain in the comfort of your home.

Causes of Muscle Spasms

Muscle spasm, also known as involuntary hypertonicity occurs when muscle tissues contract involuntarily. It ranges from tolerable twitches to severe pain and may occur to anyone (children and adults with an active or sedentary lifestyle) at any time (either moving or resting). Acute muscle spasms typically occur when muscles are overused, dehydrated, magnesium or potassium deficient, or when there is inadequate circulation in a person. When muscle spasms are severely painful, this is usually due to extreme stresses or damaged nerves like in multiple sclerosis or MS. Here’s a list of additional causes of muscle spasms:

  • Insufficient stretching before exercise.
  • Fatigue in the muscles.
  • Exercising in hot weather.
  • From dehydration.
  • Potassium, magnesium, and calcium electrolyte imbalances.

However, studies have shown the benefits of medical marijuana in reducing spasms’ recurrence and in soothing the pain caused by severe muscle spasms.

A report by the National Academy of Sciences states that there is substantial scientific evidence showing the effectiveness of marijuana products in calming muscle spasms and treating chronic pain. In fact, there are now athletes who turn to marijuana for its anti-inflammatory properties to aid in muscle recovery. This aid in muscle recovery and the pain-relieving properties of marijuana further results in reduced recurrence and severity of muscle spasms. In addition, a study published by the Journal of Neuroimmune Pharmacology shows that cannabis’ anti-inflammatory properties may reduce spinal cord and brain inflammation.


Through the years patients have found conventional medicine to be underwhelming with a lot of side effects that harm them in the long run, leading them to turn to medical marijuana for a more organic approach. This is why seed banks now offer their patients the convenience to buy medical marijuana online and here in Sonoma Seeds, we offer a wide variety of only the best quality seeds that’s suitable for both medical and recreational purposes.
