Yes, however...: While i doubt research on this has been done, medical marijuana is well-known to relieve pain ; spasm in conditions like ms so should help this. However, such relief would be purely symptomatic ; not a substitute for addressing the cause with other treatments like magnesium, acupuncture, osteopathy, relaxation techniques etc.: http://www.Dystonia-foundation.Org/pages/complementary_therapy/156.Php.
