Sativex - bringing it from Canada into US - allowed?

Postby magster » Tue Dec 06, 2016 8:50 am

Hi all,

I'm in Canada, on Sativex and like to visit the States frequently. Am I allowed to bring it across the border..with a doctor's prescription of course ;-) ...Do I declare it as a Narcotic at the border?

Any help would be appreciated. I know Sativex is still in Stage 3 federal trials in the US, but not sure if it has been approved yet.

Thanks very much.

Have you tried calling your doctor's office to see if they can offer any advice?

My doctor's office is not familiar with US border practices. I contacted the FDA but they weren't able to help either. I'm hoping to hear from somebody who may have tried to take it to the US and to find out what they have done.
