Nabiximols (Sativex) for MS
CBD and THC can affect how other medicines work. Always discuss possible interactions with a specialist.
Epidyolex is a highly purified liquid containing CBD (cannabidiol).
And it is only likely to be prescribed for a small number of patients.
They will also likely not know much about CBD oil and medicinal cannabis in general so will need to invest some time reading up about it, as well as finding out about the legal situation in New Zealand.
