    Because bladder control falls mostly to the central nervous system, it’s no surprise that cannabis may present novel and effective treatment options.

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.
