CBD And Multiple Sclerosis

The National Institutes of Health have a study regarding multiple sclerosis. To set the scene, it begins by stating:

“Inflammation in the central nervous system (CNS) is a complex process that involves a multitude of molecules and effectors, and it requires the transmigration of blood leukocytes across the blood-brain barrier (BBB) and the activation of resident immune cells. Cannabidiol (CBD), a non-psychotropic cannabinoid constituent of Cannabis sativa, has potent anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive properties. Yet, how this compound modifies the deleterious effects of inflammation in TMEV-induced demyelinating disease (TMEV-IDD) remains unknown.”

Using a viral model of MS, the study demonstrated that CBD decreases the transmigration of blood leukocytes by downregulating the expression of vascular cell adhesion molecule – 1 (VCAM-1), chemokines (CCL2 and CCL5) and the proinflammatory cytokine IL – 1β, as well as by attenuating the activation of microglia.

CBD was also shown to have long lasting effects  when administered at the time of viral infection. The study concluded by saying, “Together, our findings highlight the anti-inflammatory effects of CBD in this viral model of MS and demonstrate the significant therapeutic potential of this compound for the treatment of pathologies with an inflammatory component.”

This is encouraging to those struggling with Multiple Sclerosis. It also highlights it’s anti-viral properties in general. Knowing that inflammation is the primary cause for dozens of problems people have, helps explain why CBD can be used for so many things. The anti-inflammatory properties were again highlighted throughout this study.
