Perhaps you have read previous reports about how a spray marijuana product may help with spasticity in multiple sclerosis. Now there is a new study in which researchers have noted this phenomenon and published their findings.
Based on the results of the new study, which was conducted in Italy, use of the spray marijuana product called Sativex in 43 people with multiple sclerosis resulted in an improvement in spasticity when compared with a placebo. Specifically, lower limb spasticity improved by an average of 18.2 percent among individuals who were treated with Sativex for four weeks while those in the placebo group showed a 6.7 percent improvement. Since this was a crossover study, all the patients were exposed to the drug.
