Thread: Sativex for tics?

  1. #1

    Default Sativex for tics?

    I read that Canada has approved a prescription spray called Sativex, which is a natural THC product extracted from marijuana, for use by MS patients. Since I have also read accounts of people receiving relief from their tics by smoking marijuana, I am wondering if anyone has tried Sativex for their tics? In the US, there is a oral prescription product called Marinol, which is a synthetic form of THC prescribed for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. Some TS sufferers have tried it, but the results were not what was hoped for.
