I haven’t used it but many have discussed it. If you put CBD in the little magnifying glass in the upper left you will get many hits. Dr Boster has also discussed in some of his videos you can search his You Tube Channel. This is a lecture but there are shorter segments as well

@colettepage , put the term “CBD Oil” into the Forum Search (magnifying glass, top left) to see what’s been said before.

Also, the tag “Fun Drugs” is a wink-wink-nudge-nudge way to refer to Cannabis.

Which in my view contributes to the stigma, as it’s classified as “work and play”, and it says “using recreational drugs to manage Multiple Sclerosis”

Still quite a long way to go on that front, then…

I used CBD oil and found it loosened up My vocal chords making it easier to talk as well as chasing away spacisity in my legs You just have to get the strength right. I’m PPMS

Thank you, im also PPMS. I’m hoping/ considering starting Ocrevus when lockdown eased enough for my neuro centre to allow it. Just can’t decide if I should give cbd oil a go beforehand. I’m wondering if anyone is currently on Ocrevus & taking cbd oil too? Plus unsure if a neurologist would agree to Ocrevus if someone was also taking cbd oil or would it ruin chances of being started on it. Or would it be a case of not admitting to it?? Col 😳

Man*, I owned up straight out to the pharmacist at the Ocrevus screening that I treated spasticity with liberal amounts of cannabis indica, that’s no biggie at all. CBD is very much legal in the UK. CBD’ise away, but be advised that what’s available on the UK market tend to be low dosage for an MS indication (Indica-tion? getddit? 😎👉👉)

*Presumably by your handle, you aren’t, but when it comes to pot, that’s the appropriate vocative.

Wish you luck.
