Our first Survey of Medical Cannabis Patients was commissioned by the APPG for Drug Policy Reform in 2016 to support their Short Inquiry into Cannabis and Medicine and can be downloaded in full by clicking here.
It was submitted to No 10 Downing Street along with our Trustee Professor Mike Barnes' review into the medical evidence for cannabis as medicine.
Our 2018 Survey is now LIVE:
This (anonymous if preferred) survey is for people who consume cannabis, cannabis products or cannabis derivatives to treat or alleviate one or more physical or mental health conditions. It was designed in consultation with Dr Gary Potter from Lancaster University (Senior Lecturer in Criminology) and responses will be treated in the strictest confidence.
We had 623 UK Patients fill in the survey in 2016 and the results helped directly to make the case for decriminalisation of personal possession and Grow Your Own to be included in the APPGs recommendations as well as raise the awareness of the range of conditions for which cannabis can help.
Results from our new survey will provide more evidence to inform future policy that is being formulated right now by the Government. It is really important that we bring the Voice of the Patient to bear during this process, showing the depth and breadth of how cannabis is being consumed as an effective medicine in the UK today. We want #NoPatientLeftBehind.
We have smashed our 2016 total of 623 and have now smashed through 1500 participants this time making it the biggest survey of its kind in the UK for 15 years. The more patients in the UK who fill this in, the more credibility the data will have, maximising the volume and impact of our voices. Please share this everywhere and tell everyone you know who consumes cannabis as medicine to fill this in and have their voice heard.
