Sales of cannabis-derived, multiple sclerosis treatment Sativex boosted earnings and profits for GW Pharmaceuticals, the U.K.-based company said today.

Sativex sales increased to £1.9 million ($3.1 million) in the six months ending March 31, up from £900,000 in the comparable period last year, according to a statement.

Total revenue increased by approximately 45% to £16.6 million, versus £11.4 million for the same six months in 2010. Net profit before tax for the period was £3.1 million, compared to a loss of £2.7 million last year.

GW mentioned in the statement receiving regulatory approval in several countries and the prospect of broader acceptance through a license agreement with Novartis. The company is also developing cannabis treatment for diabetes and metabolic disease.
