In 2019, approximately 41.7 percent of British adults living with Huntington's disease were using cannabis illegally for medicinal purposes to help manage the symptoms of the disease. Furthermore, 41.2 percent of those surveyed with schizophrenia were also using cannabis for the purposes of helping to manage their condition and the associated symptoms. This data shows that despite the limited medical cannabis legalization in the UK, there are a substantial number of individuals suffering with medical conditions obtaining cannabis through different routes in an attempt to treat and manage their health problems.
