Posted by 16/08/2016 0 Comment(s)

You read right, the NHS are testing a Cannabis based pain relief product.


It has been reported that The National Health Service is testing a Marijuana based product for the first time.




The "MediPen" is used to relieve pain from many conditions.



The "MediPen" is used to treat people with a wide range of conditions, including cancer, depression and arthritis.

The vaporiser actually contains the active ingredient cannabidoil, this is an oil which is extracted from the cannabis plants, and the manufacturer has claimed that this is a "completely non- psychoactive and it doesn’t contain any mind altering effects"


According to an interview with a managing director from The Independent the product is being tested by a NHS unit.

MediPen has taken to Facebook to confirm that the pain reliever is "the 1st consumer cannabis marijuana product to be treated by the NHS


One Facebook review for the vaporiser reads: “When I thought all was lost with finding relief for my fibro I found this. It's changed my life.”


As the first consumer cannabis product to be tested by the NHS, we are confident that this will go a long way towards creating a properly regulated cannabis market in the UK and are extremely excited to see what the future holds.


Unfortunately the NHS was unable to provide comments due to there being a non-disclosure agreement which prevents them from sharing client information.


MediPen & Case



MediPen has been currently promoting a high profile campaign to change the way the public perceives cannabis.


They have said that the "negative connotations" that surround the drug are "having a detrimental impact on millions of lives across the UK"


In a poll back in April it was found that almost half of the people in the UK are actually in favour of decriminalising cannabis.
