I have severe spasticity on my right side. It affects my gait, my balance, i have little to no use of my right hand, it even affects my speech.i have been taking Baclofen since diagnosis in 2016 and remain on 70 mg per day. I decided to give CBD oil a shot (Hempworx online). The rep said I should take 1/2 to 1 dropper full under tongue and give it 3 weeks to work. I was shocked when I started seeing my hand relax enough to lie flat, and even more shocked that my speech is good enough to make a phone call. Over the last five months the effects have remained ( except the one week I ran out and the effects quickly went away). I am sold on this stuff. But be careful about the brand that you choose. There are a plethora of brands on the market. I recommend a brand that is third party quality tested, regularly. It costs me about 80$ per month. My physiatrist has recommended trying Botox in my arm. I’m giving that a whirl next week. Fingers crossed.
