Medical cannabis has been approved in the form of a mouth spray in Sweden. It can also happen in Norway, according to the Norwegian State Medicines Agency.
Last week. the Swedish Läkemedelsverket allowed the mouth spray Sativex, which contains extracts from cannabis spray, for the first time on prescription in Sweden.
– Because Sativex is approved in Sweden, it is likely that we get the same decision in Norway, but we have to go through the application first, says Steinar Madsen, medical, Chief Operating Officer of the State Medicines Agency to Aftenposten.
