Highlights 

  • Kanabo has recently partnered with Medocann Pharma Ltd. to develop new products aimed at specific medical conditions.
  • Cellular Goods inked a multi-year manufacture and supply contract with Chanelle McCoy Health Ltd for the rollout of clinically-approved ingestible products.

Unlike the United States, where cannabis is widely used for both medical and recreational purposes, its use is still tightly restricted in the UK. The use of cannabis for medical treatment was only approved in the UK in 2018.

Recreational use of cannabis, however, remains prohibited in the country. Therefore, the approval for the listing of the cannabis/cannabinoid companies on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) was complicated. Recreational cannabis firms were strictly prohibited from being listed in the UK because any funding received by these companies would be noted as a breach of money laundering rules.

Medical cannabis firms only received clearance for listing in September 2020. Here is a detailed review of two medical cannabinoid stocks in the UK – Kanabo Group and Cellular Goods.
