'No strong evidence to back use of cannabis to treat MS'

There is no strong evidence to back the use of cannabis extract in the treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS), it was claimed.

A review of evidence on the first licensed preparation, Sativex, said there were "limitations" which made it difficult to identify the place of the product in clinical practice.

However the makers of the drug said they believed the comments gave a misleading view and that the review writers appeared to have misunderstood important elements of trials.

Sativex, in the form of a mouth spray, contains the principal extracts - dronabinol and cannabidiol - found in the leaf and flower of the cannabis plant, and is the first cannabinoid preparation to be licensed for use in the treatment of muscle spasms in MS.

The review, in the December issue of Drug and Therapeutics Bulletin (DTB), published by BMJ Journals, says MS is estimated to affect around 60,000 people in England and Wales, and around one in every 1,000 people will develop the condition in the UK.

An increase in muscle tone, or spasticity, is a common symptom of the condition, causing involuntary spasms, immobility, disturbed sleep, and pain.

Complex combinations of drugs are sometimes needed to manage spasticity, but they do not work that well and have a range of unpleasant side-effects, the DTB says.

This is :bullshit:
I have a 36 year old cousin who has MS he stopped taking the pills prescribed many years ago and just smokes Cannabis and skunk(green).
On his last medical check up the specialist was amazed that he had developed no symptoms of MS.

The pharmaceutical giants are interfering with this study imo.
No profit if the public can grow their own medicine. :top:
