Denmark Government Agrees to Fund Medical Cannabis Research

The Danish government has agreed to distribute 857 milliion kroner ($145 million)denmark to a wide variety of research projects, with money being earmarked for studying the benefits of medical cannabis for the first time in the nation’s history.

“A minimum of 35 million kroner [$5.9 million, ed.] will be allotted for health, quality of life and clinical research that can contribute to a better understanding of illness and prevention and more accurate treatments to benefit patients. In that context, it can include research projects on pain relief, including the use of medicinal cannabis,” the agreement reads.

“I am very pleased that we were able to secure resources for the research of medicinal cannabis”, says Rosa Lund of the Red-Green Alliance (Enhedslisten). “There is a lot that indicates that cannabis can help patients with sclerosis and epilepsy. It’s important that we have more knowledge that can benefit the patients”.
