However, when it comes to MS, only cannabis products that contain both CBD and THC have been subjected to clinical studies, and only cannabis with a 1:1 ratio of CBD:THC (or greater) has been shown to reduce muscle spasticity and pain in people with MS. I have been talking about the medicinal CBD oil which contain both of the above. Can a private, neurologist prescribe it?
