The EUMCA: Pioneering access to medicinal cannabis
“The latest data that came from a UK organisation, the CMC, involved analyzing 30 different products.. Only 38% of them had ingredients close to what was claimed on the label. In fact, one product had no cannabinoid in it at all.”
“To my mind, this whole area needs cleaning up. Patients should have the right to know what they are buying, or being prescribed is of proper quality.”
