Israel is at the Forefront of Medical Cannabis Research

Israel is one of the most progressive nations for medical marijuana research comes courtesy of the government's involvement. Not only do they sponsor the majority of clinical trials, but the Israeli military has endorsed the cannabinoid THC as part of a treatment program for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In 2017 Israel saw more than 110 clinical trials take place. Their topic of study included cannabis as a treatment for Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis (MS), Crohn’s disease and several other forms of chronic pain. Israel dominates the medical marijuana research space and the Government has plans to build one of the world's most extensive medical cannabis research and development facilities in the world.
