Cannabis-Based Medicine May Slow Progression of Rheumatoid Arthritis


A trial on Sativex, a cannabis-based medicine, showed the drug works as a painkiller and may also slow the progression of rheumatoid arthritis. This was the first ever controlled trial of a cannabis-based medicine for rheumatoid arthritis.

The effects of the drug were: significant pain relieving effects and disease activity was said to be significantly suppressed following the use of Sativex say researchers.

"Whilst the differences are small and variable..., they represent benefits of clinical relevance and show the need for more detailed investigation in this indication," said researchers from the Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases.
