CBD Found To Be A Safe And Effective Treatment For Multiple Sclerosis Symptoms

A new study has determined that CBD can be a safe and effective treatment for symptoms of multiple sclerosis.

A Phase 1 clinical trial recently published in the Journal of Clinical Pharmacology in Drug Development found that the oral CBD compound PTL101 – a new formulation of highly purified CBD in seamless gelatin matrix pellets – helped treat spasticity in those suffering from MS.

Researchers with Phytotech Therapeutics sought to determine how PTL101 is absorbed, distributed, and expelled throughout the body, as well as whether a 10 or 100 mg dose is more effective. They also compared the effects to Sativex, a CBD-based oromucosal spray approved for use in hospitals in Israel and Europe.

The trial took place in Israel and used GelpellR technology, which creates organic PTL101 beads.  

“PTL101 is a pharmaceutical-grade, user-friendly oral formulation that demonstrated safe and efficient delivery of CBD and therefore could be an attractive candidate for therapeutic indications,” reads the study.

Phase 2 of the study is expected to finish sometime in December.

Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) isn't the most vocal cannabis advocate on the 2020 presidential campaign trail, but you shouldn't take that as a lack of support for marijuana legalization. Unlike many of the top contenders for the upcoming Democratic primaries, Ryan hasn't filed any of his own cannabis legalization bills.
