JNNP: Multiple Sclerosis and Extract of Cannabis: Results of the MUSEC Trial


Multiple Sclerosis and Extract of Cannabis: Results of the MUSEC Trial


Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Psychiatry:

MS and Extract of Cannabis (MUSEC): Participants with stable MS were randomly assigned to receive oral cannabis extract (144 people) or placebo (135 people), and reported their perceptions of changes in muscle stiffness before and after 12 weeks of treatment. Muscle stiffness improved by almost twofold in the group taking cannabis compared to placebo, and improvements were also noted in body pain, spasms and sleep quality. The most frequent adverse events were urinary tract infections, dizziness, dry mouth and headache; no new safety concerns were observed. (NIH, 2012)
