Medical marijuana appears to help alleviate spasticity and central or spasm-related pain and some other multiple sclerosis symptoms, but there is little evidence of efficacy in treating epilepsy or movement disorders, according to two systematic reviews published by the AAN earlier this year. In this video, Neurology Today Editor-in-chief Steven P. Ringel, MD; Neurology Today Associate Editor Robert G. Holloway Jr., MD, MPH; and Neurology Editor-in-Chief Robert A. Gross, MD, PhD, discuss the available evidence for medical marijuana use in neurological disorders, as well as the lingering gaps in knowledge.
