Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease that affects the central nervous system. The disease can be treated with immunosuppressive drugs that alleviate the symptoms and retard disease aggravation. An example of such a drug is Copaxone, an immunosuppressive medication that is used to alleviate the symptoms of multiple sclerosis. Recently, it has been shown that the cannabidiol component in the cannabis plant has a positive effect on the model of multiple sclerosis in animals, an acute, inflammatory disease that attacks the myelin sheath. The aim of this study, conducted in collaboration with the Hebrew University, was to compare the efficacy of purified CBD, extracts of CBD-rich Avidekel, and Copaxone.
