Sativex - MS Trust


Sativex was the first cannabis-based medicine to be licensed in the UK. It is licensed for use as an add-on treatment for MS-related spasticity (muscle stiffness) when people have found that other medicines have not worked well or found their side effects intolerable.

Sativex is a mouth (oromucosal) spray formulated from two chemical extracts derived from the cannabis plant and contains delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). Cannabis plants are thought to contain more than 60 such chemicals - known as cannabinoids - but these two specific cannabinoids have been studied for their effects in MS.

About Us

Founded in 2004, MS People UK is a community website and discussion forum by and for people with Multiple Sclerosis as well as for friends, families, supporters and those interested in this disabling condition.

If you’re newly diagnosed or want to ask about possible first symptoms, or if you’ve had Relapse Remit, Secondary or Primary Progressive MS for some time, a welcoming group of fellow MS sufferers is here to chat with you about MS symptoms, diagnosis and treatments.

The atmosphere is friendly whilst being compassionate, supportive and caring. Members also post about a variety of subjects not related to MS, as well as share jokes, talk about their hobbies, have fun, and more.

The MS People Forum is not responsible for advice or information supplied by members. We suggest you seek medical advice before trying anything.
