Incontinence

Cannabis and Incontinence

Because bladder control falls mostly to the central nervous system, it’s no surprise that cannabis may present novel and effective treatment options. We know that cannabinoid receptors are profusely expressed in both the central nervous system and peripheral nervous system. And we also know that these receptors are activated by endogenous compounds as well as components of the cannabis plant. Thanks to ongoing research on cannabis and MS, quite a bit of useful data about incontinence has been collected, both in preclinical studies and a few small clinical trials.
