A report from the United Kingdom’s government says cannabis does indeed have some medicinal health benefits.
A bureau of the U.K.’s government, Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), has concluded via a study that Cannabidiol (CBD) displays a “restoring, correcting or modifying” effect on the “physiological functions” of humans.
In 2015, a petition to legalize cannabis was filed with the U.K.’s government, but the appeal failed to make any headway.
The government’s newest revelation regarding Cannabidiol and its medical attributes transpired after they conducted discussions with Medipen, a company that manufactures CBD vaporizer pens.
Jordan Owen, Managing Director of MediPen, told The Independent, that since the outset of the company “we’ve worked hard to obtain our goal” which is to change the stigma shrouding and to cannabis to “lead to a reform” in the laws regarding the substance.
Owen went on to say that the government’s report “will provide ground-breaking results,” which could plausibly help the movement to legalize cannabis in the United Kingdom.
