What is Sativex?
Sativex is a peppermint-flavoured mouth spray that comes in a small pump that you can carry with you. This pump delivers a precise amount of medicine every time you spray it.
The medicine in Sativex is extracted from cannabis plants that have been selected and grown to produce a constant amount of active ingredients.
Sativex is made under strictly controlled laboratory conditions and contains a balance of these active ingredients that have been shown to help improve the symptoms of MS spasticity.
Treatment with Sativex must be initiated and supervised by a physician with specialist expertise in treating MS.
