34. Studies also indicate cannabinoids may be able to halt the progression of MS

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18781983

CB(1) and CB(2) cannabinoid receptor stimulation may also have anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective potential as the endocannabinoid system controls the level of neurodegeneration that occurs as a result of the inflammatory insults. Therefore cannabinoids may not only offer symptom control but may also slow the neurodegenerative disease progression that ultimately leads to the accumulation of disability.

Best of health to you!

Let us know what happens. It would also be great if you keep a daily journal to track your symptoms and kept us posted from time to time - useful for yourself and to share your experience with others.
