Cannabis Research: Urinary incontinence
Urinary incontinence is the loss of control of the bladder, usually due to weak muscles, inflammation or nerve damage. It is mostly related to MS or Parkinson's disease.
Studies in this area:
1) A preliminary controlled study to determine whether cannabis extracts of the whole plant to improve persistent neurogenic symptoms (A preliminary controlled study to deterministic mine Whether whole-plant cannabis extracts can Improve intractable neurogenic symptoms - 2003)
This research aimed to find out whether the use of cannabis extracts would improve symptoms of MS, such as urinary incontinence, pain and spasticity. It was found that the use of cannabis appeared to improve symptoms that would otherwise respond to any other treatments more. It was also noted that the medically undesirable psychedelic symptoms occurred, though, but they were well tolerated. Published in the "U.S. National Library of Medicine."
2) An open pilot study of cannabis extracts for bladder dysfunction in advanced multiple sclerosis (n open-label pilot study of cannabis-based extracts for bladder dysfunction in advanced multiple sclerosis - 2004)
This study was designed to verify the personal opinions that marijuana can help alleviate symptoms of Harnwegproblemen that were caused by MS. It has been found that the use of marijuana reduced the number of incontinence episodes, and the precipitated amount. In addition, it was reported that patients tended to have less pain and spasticity and sleep improved. Published in the "Multiple Sclerosis Journal".
