Sativa will provide the service through investee business, Canada-based Veritas Pharma Inc, and its own on-site testing facility, PhytoVista Laboratories.

Professor Clive Page OBE PhD Professor of Pharmacology at King's College London will lead the research.

"With the UK catching up fast in terms of recognising the benefits of medicinal cannabis, in-country research from the globally-recognised King's College London will assist the medical profession, Government and Regulators in their deliberations,” said Sativa founder and chief executive, Geremy Thomas.

"As the UK's first medicinal cannabis investment vehicle, Sativa remains at the forefront of this fast-developing sector, which effectively mirrors what has been happening in North America since medicinal cannabis was first legalised in Canada in 2001, more than 17 years ago.”
