A new study published in this month’s issue of the journal European Neurology, and published online by the U.S. National Institute of Health, has found that muscle stiffness multiple sclerosis marijuanaSativex - a medicinal spray made from the cannabis plant – is an effective and safe treatment option for “moderate to severe multiple sclerosis spasticity (MSS)”.

According to researchers: “Nabiximols (Sativex®), a cannabinoid-based oromucosal spray, is an add-on therapy for patients with moderate to severe multiple sclerosis spasticity (MSS) resistant to other medications. The primary objective was to provide real-life observational data of clinical experience of nabiximols in contrast to formal clinical trials of effectiveness.”

Researchers used an “observational, prospective, multicenter, non-interventional” research method with “a follow-up period of 3-4 months”; in total, 335 patients were assessed.

After conducting the study, it was concluded that; “Real-life data confirm nabiximols as an effective and well-tolerated treatment option for resistant MSS in clinical practice.”

The study was conducted by researchers at the Neurological Rehabilitation Center Quellenhof in Germany.

A study published earlier this year by the journal Expert Review of Neurotherapeutics came to a similar conclusion about Sativex, finding it to be an effective treatment for multiple sclerosis spasticity.

    “what gains….the dung hole [President Obama] has been a waste and continues to be so.”

    Why would I try to argue with someone who posts things like this? “John” is not looking for answers — he’s looking for a fight. Guess I’m just not in the mood — today, at least. :)

    potheads desperate to justify their brain damaged POV. spasticity and pretty much all MS related issues that involve muscles are an issues of bad signaling and NOT something that can be fixed with any sort of “muscle relaxant”…it’s NOT the muscle, it IS the signals between the BRAIN and MUSCLE and….unless you can show how weed can instantly repair the DAMAGED signal pathways, you are a pothead

    Heavy doses of cannabinoids make the body generate heavy amounts of ceramide (look it up if you don’t know what it is). Of course cannabis is great against mutating diseases like cancer, MS, diabetes, etc. Ceramide destroys mutated and damaged cells and allows room for regeneration of new, healthy cells while leaving original healthy cells unharmed. Look it up, understand your medicine.

    When you come across ads for illegal marijuana on this website, you should treat them like you would treat an ad for infected toenails — make a yucky face and move on. However, if you are feeling spunky, feel free to post your favorite scammer or troll meme as a reply to every scammer post you see.

    And maybe, if this website had a little imagination, we could have a monthly contest for the best meme. I’m thinking two categories: one for homemade memes and one for copied ones.
