A sativex-like combination of phytocannabinoids as a disease-modifying therapy in a viral model of multiple sclerosis.
http://www.thctotalhealthcare.com/a-sat ... sclerosis/

“Sativex® is an oromucosal spray, containing equivalent amounts of Δ9 -tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ9 -THC) and cannabidiol (CBD)-botanical drug substance (BDS), and which has been approved for the treatment of spasticity and pain associated to multiple sclerosis (MS).

In this study, we investigated whether Sativex® may also serve as a disease-modifying agent in the Theiler’s murine encephalomyelitis virus induced demyelinating disease model of MS…

The data support the therapeutic potential of Sativex® to slow MS progression and its relevance in CNS repair.”
