Share of adults who would use medical cannabis in Great Britain 2019 by age

Across all age groups in Great Britain the majority of respondents to a survey would consider to some extent using cannabis-based medical products if there was strong evidence it would be an effective treatment for their health condition. Although, it is the older age groups who would be slightly more open to using medical cannabis for their health conditions, with 48 percent of those aged over 65 years saying they would definitely consider using these products and 30 percent saying they would probably consider it.

A sizeable share of British adults living with various health conditions are using cannabis unlawfully to treat their conditions, due to limited medical cannabis legalization in the UK.

If you were suffering from a medical condition where there was strong evidence that cannabis-based medicines could be an effective treatment, would you consider using cannabis-based medical products?
