Edinburgh West MP Secures Government Promise On Medicinal Cannabis Trials

Edinburgh West MP Christine Jardine has secured a government promise to support trials of medicinal cannabis as an important step towards making it available on the NHS.

In response to a question from Ms Jardine, Health Minister Gillian Keegan announced the UK Government will be supporting a programme of two randomised clinical trials into products which contain CBD, CBD plus THC and a placebo.

Ms Jardine said: “I am delighted that the government has listened to our calls and is supporting these trials which, hopefully, can break the deadlock and bring closer the provision of NHS prescriptions for children who desperately need them.”
