How can medical cannabis help the UK’s chronic pain problem?

Chronic pain is one of the most troubling and expensive issues for the NHS and patients. In fact, a recent study by The British Pain Society suggests that chronic pain affects more than 40% of the UK population, meaning that more than 26 million people in the UK are living with pain that has lasted three months or longer. The BMJ has suggested that this could rise to as high as 60% among those over the age of 75.

For many patients battling this silent epidemic, it is a hopeless exercise of jumping from one prescription drug to another and at a huge cost. For example, the associated treatment for these patients is estimated to account for 4.6m GP appointments each year at a staggering cost of £69m.

Sativa Wellness Group is focused on developing consumer products under the core “Goodbody” brand. The Goodbody brands are available online and in a growing number of retailers across the UK, all with the commitment of  “CBD you can Trust”.
