Cannabinoid and Terpene Research Targeting MS

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) affects over 1 million people above the age of 18 in the United States, and 2.3 million people worldwide, according to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Symptoms include vision loss, pain, fatigue, and impaired coordination, among others. Because there is no cure, either known or available, traditional medicine treats the signs and symptoms. Physical therapy, muscle relaxants, medication to reduce exhaustion are common treatments to help the patient recover from an attack or to slow down the progression of the dis-ease. An obvious path are the healing properties of plant medicines, rather than chemical based treatments, for those diagnosed with MS. This is where Jampha excels.

Given that there is no cure yet available, we must then search elsewhere to find relief and, if possible, a cure. is-cbd-oil-the-cure-for-multiple-sclerosis-ms/ We will explain how and why cannabinoids and terpenes can be beneficial. We will also introduce our

Tibetan botanical medicine component in this blog. So let’s begin.
Some twenty years ago there was growing evidence that cannabis and individual cannabinoids were showing effectiveness in relieving symptoms of pain and spasticity (muscle contractions and cramps).

Breakthroughs related to cannabinoid receptors CB(1) and CB(2) showed results in mediating tremors and spasticity. More studies related to CBD indicate it can be effective in reducing pain, spasms and cramps. It also increases mobility.

THC appears to improve the therapeutic properties of CBD however many people do not favor feeling “high” from the THC. Full-spectrum cannabis with higher ratios of CBD to THC may be able to relieve a wider range of symptoms and improve mobility in MS patients.

A notable minor cannabinoid, Cannabinol (CBN), has shown great promise in offering a targeted approach for MS. CBN has 3 times the affinity for CB2 receptors compared to THC (which prefers the CB1 receptors).

These CB2 receptors are found predominantly in the immune cells and so CBN’s ability to target these receptors, in comparison to THC, gives it better credibility in treating autoimmune conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and inflammatory bowel disease.

Topicals may also be effective in reducing localized pain and inflammation. Of course, it is important to emphasize that any hemp CBD used should be of the highest quality.

As we noted earlier, CBD and THC has proven to have positive effects on treating pain and other MS symptoms. sclerosis-medical-marijuana In fact, the results of a 2019 study showed that 70% of the patients reported pain relief, 56% reported better sleep and 49% said it helped with reducing spasticity and muscle pain. In addition to the study itself, one article authored by Cannigma listed the best medicinal marijuana strains and also included various terpenes. multiple-sclerosis/

Terpenes is where we will next focus our attention:
CBD and THC are the most talked about components while terpenes generally get relatively little “air time”. Jampha is convinced that terpenes can and do play a vital role in treating the signs and symptoms of MS, as well as many other “dis-eases”.

Jampha has invested many years of in depth extensive research and a great deal of time and trials to identify the correct entourage of terpenes for each of our products that target specific disorders.

Our research and experience in development has successfully given us the insight for knowing perfect Terpene ratios for specific diseases and for each of our targeted formulations, to create the deepest harmony and healing synergistic effect. Jampha has crafted a highly potent product for MS and other neuro degenerative diseases called White Tiger.

Terpenes were first isolated and classified in the 1800s though they have been used for centuries by various cultures. Of the approximately 20,000 types of terpenes, 150 varieties are found in Cannabis sativa alone. Consider that only 20% of the plant species found on Mother Gaia have been identified. It is conceivable that thousands and thousands of new terpenes will amazing healing properties are awaiting discovery!

Jampha is constantly creating new product formulas as well as strengthening existing ones in support of the healing and restoration our clients are asking for.

We are addressing those who suffer from MS, Alzheimer's, diabetes, autism, respiratory diseases and more with Jampha’s medicine line of Synergy
Enhanced Tibetan Infusions. For example, in our White Tiger product we have included several botanicals that help address MS.

Here are two examples:
