Medical Cannabis Improves Dystonia Symptoms and Alleviates Pain

In a retrospective pilot study presented at MDS 2021, researchers assessed the effect of medical cannabis treatment on symptoms of dystonia and related pain.

The following article is part of conference coverage from the International Congress of Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders (MDS) Virtual Annual Meeting. Neurology Advisor’s staff will be reporting breaking news associated with research conducted by leading experts in neurology. Check back for the latest news from the MDS 2021 Virtual Annual Meeting.

Consumption of medical cannabis in adults with dystonia improves symptoms and alleviates related pain, according to study findings presented at the International Congress of Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders Society (MDS) Virtual Congress 2021, held from September 17 to 22, 2021.

Previous research has found medical cannabis may help treat involuntary muscle contractions and reduce related pain in patients with dystonia by the activation of cannabinoid receptors in the basal ganglia that release γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA). This could potentially reduce severity and improve quality of life for patients with dystonia. From 2013, the Israeli Ministry of Health (MOH) has accepted the use of medical cannabis for symptomatic treatment in patients with movement disorders and related pain.

The current study aimed to assess the effect of medical cannabis on dystonia muscle activity and related pain in patients with an MOH-approved medical cannabis license.

Patients with dystonia (n=23) with an approved medical cannabis license from the MOH were contacted via telephone by researchers from the Tel Aviv University, Israel. Using a 5-point Likert scale, participants’ demographics, medical cannabis use, and treatment effects were assessed.

A total of 11 women and 12 men, with a mean age of 52.7 years, were included in the analysis. Dystonia etiologies were generalized (n=9), focal (n=6), segmental (n=5), hemidystonia (n=2), or multifocal (n=1) caused by Parkinson disease (n=6), monogenic variants (n=4), or unknown (n=13).

Participants indicated that they had been using medical cannabis for an average of 2.5±1.0 years. Medical cannabis was consumed at a mean dose of 22.6±20.1 grams per month and at a frequency of 3.3±4.3 times per day. The medical cannabis was composed of 10.6%±6.6% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and 8.0%±5.7% cannabidiol. Participants also indicated that they used cannabis oil extract (47.8%), smoked dried buds (43.5%), or both (8.7%).

The subjective, self-reported efficacy of medical cannabis for dystonia was 3.3/5, pain was 3.7/5, and quality of life was 3.6/5. The majority of participants (70%) also reported an improvement in sleep.

Participants who experienced more improvements to their dystonia reported using a higher THC dose than those who showed little improvement, with a positive correlation between THC dose and dystonia symptom improvement (R 2 =0.012).

Participants who smoked medical cannabis vs those who consumed the oil were more likely to report dystonia symptom improvement.

Adverse effects included dry mouth (65%), worsening mood (n=3), anxiety (n=2), anxiety with hallucinations (n=1), and suicidal ideation (n=1). Three participants stopped receiving treatment with medical cannabis due to inefficacy or adverse effects.

Study limitations included its small size and the inclusion of patients with differing dystonia symptoms, using uncontrolled dosing and administration methods. Therefore, these findings should be validated in a larger, controlled study.

“[Medical cannabis] seems to improve symptoms of dystonia and related pain. Higher daily dose of THC and smoking rather than sublingual oil are significantly more efficacious,” the researchers concluded.

CBD for muscle spasms?

has anyone had any success with CBD for muscle pain and spasm and twitches? If so, what dosage and brand? Is it vape, edible, or sublingual?

I have tried vaping, I think it was 15 mg, but did not notice any true effects, so I am worried that I did not either have the right dosage or did not buy the right brand, etc.

Thank you for reading and hope to find some help.

I have tried CBD for my cervical dystonia. It was difficult for me to tell if it was working fully, but I began to feel less pain in my neck and shoulders. However I stopped because it became too expensive and I would order higher quality CBD or what I thought was higher quality CBD but couldn’t discern a difference. One I began using kratom I stopped using CBD.

@Armor2 ‍ O my gosh, you use Kratom? Wow, that is so good to hear. I have not heard of anyone else using it. It helps me with the pain. but not so much the tremors or spasms, but certainly helps for the pain. What type of Kratom strain do you use that helps? I use a blend of Green Malay, Red Bali, and White Maeng Da.

So you feel Kratom helped more than CBD for the pain just not as much as Kratom, but as for as the spams, CBD did not help?

Definitely kratom is far superior, and I was starting to use more and more CBD oil maybe because of tolerance. I use a red Indo with white Borneo. Red attacks the pain quite well.

CBD did nothing for the spasms and I am trying to find a solution for that.

Hi! I have used CBD oil ( Inuse KOI- 1000mg- a half to a full dropper a day depending on my pain level) for over a year for my spasms and they basically have stopped. I still sometimes get them if I’m trying to turn my head the left and go against my dystonia. Please be careful with the kratom- I had considered it until reading into it more. Just isn’t for me, but I’m glad it is working for those taking it 🙂 My neurologist wanted to put me on klonopin and Valium for my spasms but I’m so thankful I was introduced to CBD oil instead..
