Medical Marijuana Genetics
In 2014, the founders of Medical Marijuana Genetics first learnt of the therapeutic properties of the cannabis plant whilst desperately treating the symptoms of one of their mother’s late stage pancreatic cancer. Not long after her first dose of cannabis oil, she was able to move around relatively pain free, enabling her to tend to her beloved garden, in the weeks leading up to her death.
The benefit that the cannabis oil had given her was clearly visible to those around her and awoke a passion and deep interest in the use of cannabis as a medicine. Shortly after, the informational website www.medicalmarijuana.co.uk was born and subsequently, a concept to create cannabis strains with the most beneficial therapeutic effects; whilst at the same time raising awareness as to their potential.
Through the organisation's interaction with patients and cannabis communities worldwide, it quickly became apparent that access to cannabis genetics high in cannabinoids other than THC was severely limited. As a result of this, Medical Marijuana Genetics was formed with award winning breeders and caregivers from the Basque region of Spain, with the initial aim of creating a line of CBD dominant cannabis strains.
