As a whole new demographic of patients begin to embrace the potential health benefits of cannabis, scientific studies and trials are becoming ever more common. From chronic pain and chemotherapy-induced nausea to spasticity in Multiple Sclerosis, cannabis is now considered as a treatment option in an increasing number of jurisdictions.

Arthritis is a common condition that usually causes pain and inflammation in joints. It is estimated that Arthritis, or similar conditions, currently affects around 10 million people in the UK alone. Although the condition may often be associated with older people, it can actually affect people of all ages.
