In our subsidiary Formula Swiss Medical ApS we have been working since March 2021 together with a number of skilled Danish doctors and researchers to be able to deliver effective medical cannabis from Switzerland at reasonable prices.
To ensure the highest product quality of medical cannabis, we are in the process of planning EU GMP production in Switzerland. This is a legal requirement from medical agencies.
What is medical cannabis?
Medical cannabis is the use of cannabis and its derivatives for medicinal purposes. Cannabis is a plant that contains more than 100 chemical compounds better known as cannabinoids, the two best known of which are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). THC is the compound responsible for the plant's psychoactive effects, while CBD is non-psychoactive and has been shown to have a number of therapeutic properties.
The history of medical cannabis can be traced back to ancient civilisations where it was used for a variety of medicinal purposes. In ancient China, for example, cannabis was used to treat conditions such as arthritis, rheumatism, and malaria. In ancient India, it was used as a painkiller to treat conditions such as anxiety and insomnia.
In more recent history, the use of medical cannabis was largely suppressed in the 20th century due to the criminalisation of the drug. In recent years, however, there has been a resurgence of interest in the medicinal properties of cannabis, and a growing body of scientific research has been conducted to investigate its potential therapeutic benefits.
One of the main areas of research into medical cannabis has been its use as a painkiller. Studies have shown that cannabis can be effective in treating chronic pain, particularly in conditions such as multiple sclerosis and neuropathic pain. It has also been shown to be effective in treating nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy and other medical treatments.
Another area of research has focused on the use of medical cannabis to treat mental health conditions, such as anxiety, depression, and PTSD. Studies have suggested that cannabis may be effective in treating these conditions, although further research is needed to understand the mechanisms behind this.
Although the use of medical cannabis remains a controversial topic, the growing body of scientific evidence supporting its therapeutic benefits has led to greater acceptance of the drug in the medical community. However, further research is needed to understand the mechanisms behind the therapeutic effects of cannabis and to develop safe and effective cannabis-based products.
