Clinical trials for medical cannabis for children
Talks are underway about setting up clinical trials into medicinal cannabis. The move towards trials of the medication means that leading medical experts in the UK will examine a large number of plant-based medicines, so they can gather evidence to show which medicinal cannabis products react well with various types of epilepsy and seizures.
Based on the outcome, this means that children could be given the chance to see if medicinal cannabis works for them.
Craig Knightley says…
“I believe that if these clinical trials show that the prescription of medical cannabis is of benefit to children, then it is important for it to be made readily available throughout the country on the NHS, and not just for those who can afford to pay for it privately”.
