The Core of Grow's Mission: Patients
Grow’s community newsletter all about the ecosystem of medical cannabis written by the team at Grow.
Welcome to our patient focused newsletter!
In this feature we’re going deeper into the core of our mission: making sure patients have access to the best quality medicines for their needs.
🚚 We’re proud to distribute cannabis medicines to over 1200 patients in the UK and Ireland, but that’s still only a fraction of the hundreds of thousands of people who could benefit from their therapeutic effects.
👩🏫 Although medically prescribed cannabis has been legal since 2017, significant information and access barriers remain in place.
👩⚕️💊 As well as ensuring that patients have access to the best quality medicine, we’ve been helping shape the landscape of the industry.
To continue to drive forward our mission to increase patient access across the UK and Europe we are working on three major initiatives:
1️⃣ My Access Initiative & Open Cannabis - informed, fast, and affordable access to medicine
Grow has developed educational programmes to raise awareness of how to access cannabis-based medicines. My Access Initiative is a programme Grow designed giving patients a directory of clinics to get medication in a simple and effective way. Open Cannabis created a platform and campaign to connect organisations, clinics and healthcare providers to patients.
2️⃣ Educational Webinars - Bringing experts together and driving conversation
Grow sponsors webinars where leading medical experts host educational events to inform doctors on the application of medical cannabis. We also have an in-house series called Grow Conversations. This is an educational series of interviews providing an informative insight into cannabis medicines with industry leaders and advocates.
🚨 Grow is participating in the Royal Society of Medicine October webinar in October! Check out the amazing lineup!
3️⃣ Calyx Patient App - holistic health and medication app for patients
Calyx is an app patients can use to gain insight into their holistic health journey whilst they begin their prescription of cannabis-based medicines.
