CBD, a promising natural ally for treating multiple sclerosis
CBD, also called cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid extracted from hemp. This molecule benefits from natural properties increasingly recognized for treating certain ailments and pathologies.
Unlike THC, a popular cannabis molecule, CBD does not cause addiction or psychoactive effects.
The action of cannabidiol to fight MS
Over the course of research, it has been shown that CBD has an action on the receptors of the endocannabinoid system (DRY).
Present in our immune and central nervous system, they are responsible for regulating our body at several levels. In the case of multiple sclerosis, CBD plays a regulatory role on the immune system.
Indeed, it will help block the production of antibodies from certain white blood cells, which are responsible for the destruction of myelin.
It will thus help relieve inflammation of nerve fibers and calm pain.

Research remains insufficient to prove its effectiveness at this level, but the feedback is rather positive.
