Oral Cannabis Spray

It’s called
Sativex (Sativa? what?).
Sativex is an oromucosal (mouth) spray developed by GW Pharmaceuticals for multiple sclerosis patients.
They can use it to alleviate neuropathic pain, spasticity, overactive bladder, and other symptoms.
Sativex is also being prescribed to alleviate pain due to cancer and has been researched in various models of peripheral and central neuropathic pain.

Why not Marinol (Aka: Dronabinol)?
Sativex is distinct from all other pharmaceutically produced cannabinoids currently available because it is derived from botanical material.
Rather than a solely synthetic process.
Sativex is a pharmaceutical product standardised in composition, formulation, and dose.

Active Components? (TH to the C!)
Its principal active cannabinoid components are the cannabinoids: tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD).
The product is formulated as an oromucosal spray which is administered by spraying into the mouth.
Each spray of Sativex delivers a fixed dose of 2.7mg THC and 2.5mg CBD.
