Cannabis tablets?

Hey MSers Does anyone take tablets/oil pills that are made from cannabis? I was just looking into it, and wandering if there's any benefits? Regards!

It was suggested to me to try oil & I tried, pain gone within seconds its amazing, no head high (which is what I can't stand from smoking)

What about if you're on Lemtrada? Or any other meds, can you still take it? X

Well I'm currently taking Gilenya. I've never taken cannabis in any form, but I've heard that it can help with certain MS related symptoms. I guess I need to speak to my neuro in June.

I use both the oil and salve that have THC in them. So far it's the best thing I've found for nerve pain and sore/tight muscles. I'm sure pain killers would work, but I like those too much and won't be taking them long term for anything again.

Thank you for the tip. I've just ordered some oil. Might get me off antidepressants for nerve pain....Fingers crossed!

@chate-patel I use the CBD Brothers Blue Edition Oil as part of my routine. I have some sensory issues with my left hand which are related to a Chiari Malformation rather than my MS and it certainly helps with that.

I was given some of the oil and I'd put it in my hot cider. My pain was gone and I was able to sleep better. Can't use it anymore because of the trail I'm in for a new MS drug, but I wish I could it worked wonders.

I would like to thank everyone for their comments. I will definitely look into CBD oils. I looked into Amazon and was amazed how easy it seems to by such products online. My only issue ATM is will l have any side affect with taking a cannabis based product whilst taking Gilenya. Will it be safe? Maybe I need to talk to my neuro and get his professional opinion on it. Thank you all!
