The Cannabis plant has a history of medicinal use dating back thousands of years. However, due to its legal status in the modern world, scientific research has been restricted.

Thanks to the recent trends associated with cannabis legislation, the regulatory framework for the use of medicinal cannabis has improved in numerous regions. Patients have easier access to medicinal cannabis and it is now possible to conduct studies on the plant, allowing researchers to learn more about the medical properties and the mechanisms of actions of cannabinoids.

Oxford Cannabinoid Technologies partners with world leading research institutions (led by the University of Oxford) to study cannabinoids further and develop new treatments that allow patients to experience the therapeutic benefits of medical cannabis.
