New York – A new review has found that medical marijuana is effective in treating the symptoms of multiple sclerosis. As reported by CBS News, the American Academy of Neurology stated for the first time on Monday that some symptoms of the neurological disorder, including pain and spasm, could be helped with the drug when administered as an oral spray or pill.
Dr. Barbara Koppel stated that there is not sufficient evidence to determine whether smoking medical marijuana yields the same effectiveness.
Koppel is quoted in the report as stating of the review findings, “There is lots of literature about smoking, but it’s all anonymous questionnaires, and it’s patient testimonials.”
As noted in the report, although now legal in some states, medical marijuana has not gone through the process of obtaining FDA approval.
