MMJ and MS: How Cannabis helps alleviate the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis, or MS, is a neurological “autoimmune” disease of the central nervous system in which the bodies immune system attacks its own nerve cells damaging their ability to function and eventually destroying them.

Why Cannabis is the perfect choice for a Happy Valentine’s Day.
