New study finds that patients with neuropathic pain may benefit from cannabis-based medicine or medical cannabis.

Cannabis-based medicines (CBM) and medical cannabis (MC) were found to be safe and even displayed some positive effects among patients with neuropathic pain.

Cannabis capitals of Europe: Where has weed been decriminalised on the continent?

There are several locations across Europe where cannabis use is as much part of the culture as French wine and Italian coffee.

New Report Reveals Denmark’s Unique Hybrid Cannabis Model

In 2018, Denmark started a four-year programme to assess cannabis-based medicines and build a base of what could become a domestic medical cannabis supply framework.

According to the new FW European Medical Cannabis Ecosystem report by First Wednesdays, Denmark’s programme is two trials running parallel: one for domestic medical use and another for domestic cultivation.

In Denmark, cultivation has an open-ended system. This means there is no cap on production volumes or limits on licensed businesses.

The aim is to achieve a certain high standard in cannabis cultivation, with the help of a clear framework that would see producers being engaged with plant scientists, breeders, AgTech, and pharma engineering firms.
