The MHRA – the UK government agency that list medicines announce in late 2016 that CBD (Cannabidiol) one of the many components of Cannabis may be certified as a medicine.
A group of companies operating in the CBD market got together to talk directly to the MHRA and explain it should be licensed in a similar form to vitamin C.
You can buy Vitamin C as a food supplement but it can also be prescribed by a Doctor as a medicine.
The companies went on to form the Cannabis Trades Association which we were associated with.
But as our activist stance on cannabis lead to a divergent opinion we have subsequently left. The Cannabis Trades Association is trying as many others are to get a regulated market for the full spectrum of Cannabis based products in the UK.
