Cannabis appears to provide many benefits for patients with MS. These benefits include reduction of spasticity, improvement of urinary symptoms, reduction of pain, improvement of mood. The medical literature is full of small studies that demonstrate these effects (https://scholar.google.com/scholar?q=cannabis+multiple+sclerosis+study&hl=en&as_sdt=0&as_vis=1&oi=scholart&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwirhP_V6PPYAhVL2mMKHaIrBkgQgQMIJzAA), although the effects are not always profound. I believe THC is extremely important in producing these effects, and the presence of sufficient CBD is also important. I do not think there is yet clinical science supporting a particular ratio of CBD:THC, but 1:1 is probably a good place to start, varying the ratio and amount taken to discover what is most helpful. Many such preparations are available for inhalation or ingestion. I wish you great success in reducing the discomfort of your MS symptoms.
