Medicinal Cannabis: Trial underway to see if cannabis-based medicine shrinks brain tumours


Interim CEO at The Brain Tumour Charity, Dr David Jenkinson added: “With so few treatments available and average survival still so heartbreakingly short, thousands affected by a glioblastoma in the UK each year are in urgent need of new options and new hope.

“We know there is significant interest among our community about the potential activity of cannabinoids in treating glioblastomas, and we’re really excited that this world-first trial here in the UK could help accelerate these answers.”

Should this trial yield positive results, it would mark another victory for medicinal cannabis, a plant that has the potential to help hundreds of thousands of patients in the UK with a number of conditions.

So far, the number of conditions medicinal cannabis could potentially be used to treat based off studies and treatments at a number of stages includes:
• Prostate cancer
• Bowel cancer
• Epilepsy
• Anxiety
• Chronic pain
• Crohn’s disease.
• Brain tumours.
