March is Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month
Treating MS with cannabis
Medical cannabis has been proven highly effective at managing many of the symptoms of multiple sclerosis (MS) including inflammation, pain, muscle spasms and the emotional effects that can accompany MS like depression.
According to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, more than 2.3 million people are affected by MS worldwide. The disease affects the central nervous system. MS is a conditions recognized by the State of New Mexico Medical Cannabis Program and here at Everest, we work with each patient to find the best products to treat their specific symptoms.
Our staff has identified three of our handcrafted strains that we recommend for patients suffering from MS symptoms, all of which come in multiple products to best suit the preference of the individual patients.
B4: The blissful, lightweight euphoria of this hybrid is great for treating pain MS patients may experience and the depression that can often develop with the disease. B4 is available in both flower and concentrate. Try our B4 Bhang cartridge.
Purple Kush: This indica strain’s long-lasting effects provides physical relaxation ridding the body of pain, sleeplessness, and stress. Available in flower and a variety of edibles. Staff picks include Bhang chocolates or gummies.
Super Lemon OG: A 60/40 indica-dominant hybrid of Super Lemon Haze and Captain Krypt OG, Super Lemon OG produces relaxing body effects that are balanced by the uplifting and energetic sativa influence perfect for treating muscle spasms and pain associated with MS. We suggest Elevated suckers or our handcrafted flower in Super Lemon OG.
