CBD Oil for ALS: A Natural and Safe Treatment for ALS | cbdMD

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Overview

Also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a nervous system disorder that affects physical abilities by weakening muscles. It occurs when nerve cells deteriorate and break down leading to decreased muscle capabilities; the cause of cellular nerve degradation is still unknown. The most primary symptom is muscle weakness, and while there are medications and treatment to lower muscular discomfort, no cure is available[76].

Therapeutic Attributes and Effects of CBD

Over many years, an increased interest has developed towards creating new and safer treatments for ALS. Reports indicate that cannabinoid compounds such as CBD display anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective and antioxidant effects when administered for diseases affecting the central nervous system. Investigations have looked into cannabinoids impeding disease progression and increasing survival rates in ALS as well as to relieve symptoms associated with ALS[77].

Case Developments

In an article researching neural regeneration, a clinical study supported the neuroprotective effects of cannabinoids using mammalian models with ALS and intravenously administering cannabinoids to activate cannabinoid receptors (CB1/CB2). Results concluded cannabinoid compounds delay the progression of ALS and increase chances of longevity. A study using human-based testing recorded moderate relief from several symptoms amongst ALS patients including improvements of spasticity though accounts were subjective in general[77].
