Investigating the Effects of Different Cannabis Strains in the Brain


As the legal barriers to the use of medicinal cannabis continue to tumble, it is becoming essential to understand the efficacy of different cannabis strains for the treatment of different ailments, thereby enabling doctors to prescribe the most appropriate medications to their patients.

The Beckley/Exeter Cannabis Centre at the University of Exeter is currently working with partners in the US, Canada and Israel in order to bring the latest innovative technology to cannabis research in the UK. Using highly specialised equipment to analyse the cannabinoid, terpene and flavonoid content of different cannabis strains, we will formulate cannabis-based medicines to treat specific conditions such as pain, insomnia, and anxiety, and boost cognitive functioning including memory.
