Unlocking the potential of Cannabis Medication through Research and Education

- Cannabis Research and Education UK


Cannabis Research and Education UK is the UK's first medical cannabis research body. We're dedicated to unlocking the potential of cannabis as a therapeutic tool. Our mission is to explore and promote the diverse applications of cannabis medication, opening doors to a world of innovative treatments and improved patient care. Through rigorous scientific research and evidence-based studies, we aim to shed light on the efficacy and safety of cannabis-based therapies.

The level of water activity in any cannabis sample is instrumental to its microbial content. Therefore, the curing process must be both sufficient and thorough. If cannabis samples are fresh, tests for E.coli, Clostridium botulinum and Pseudomonas aeruginosa are required.

We believe in empowering individuals with knowledge. We are committed to educating both healthcare providers and the general public about responsible cannabis use, legal regulations, safety guidelines, and more. By dispelling myths surrounding cannabis medication through comprehensive education initiatives, we aim to foster informed decision-making for patients seeking alternative treatment options.


The Endocannabinoid System plays a role in regulating a range of key functions and processes, including metabolism, immune system responses, cardiovascular system function, muscle formation, bone remodelling and growth and skin and nerve function.

Exogenous cannabinoids are molecules made by the cannabis plant. They're similar to the Endocannabinoids produced by your body and interact with us in much the same way.

Cannabinoids help modulate mood, appetite and digestion in addition to muscle formation, nervous system functions, immune system responses and pain receptiveness.

The most abundant cannabinoid receptor is the CB1 cannabinoid receptor. CB1 receptors are mostly found in the central nervous system while CB2 receptors are mostly found in your peripheral nervous system, especially immune cells.

Standardised data collection and it's importance

Data collection is now the most crucial aspect in the further development of cannabis medications. Life science companies, medical cannabis prescribers, and the wider scientific community all have a responsibility to work towards collecting standardised data.

Data should be carefully analysed and the results made available to medical cannabis prescribers. An interdisciplinary approach between scientists such as chemists, biologists, and neuroscientists holds great importance. The collaboration of other health professionals such as physicians, psychologists and psychiatrists is also crucial.

Excipients, what are they and why are they useful?

Excipients play a crucial role in pharmaceutical formulations, going beyond being mere "inert diluents." They are essential components used to overcome the limitations posed by active drugs and address challenges related to drug properties.

One of the key functions of excipients is to enhance the bioavailability of poorly water-soluble active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs). By incorporating specific excipients into formulations, they can improve solubility, dissolution rates, and ultimately increase the absorption and effectiveness of these APIs within the body.

However, excipients are not limited to just enhancing bioavailability. They also have the capability to reduce bioavailability when necessary. This can be useful in cases where controlled release or targeted drug delivery is desired. Excipients can be employed to slow down or modify drug release profiles, ensuring optimal therapeutic outcomes.
