Sativa highlighted existing research and commercially available products which had shown that CBG was an effective antibacterial agent and also believed to be helpful combatting superbug methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).

"CBG has already proven itself as impactful in terms of combatting germs and, when coupled with alcohol, makes it an ideal hand cleanser.  We are pleased to be able to supply what, we hope, will be a tool in combatting the spread of this virus”, said George Thomas, managing director of Sativa subsidiary Goodbody Botanicals.

Henry Lees-Buckley, chief executive of Sativa, added:   "The UK and the world is facing a health crisis and at Sativa, while we are continuing focus on making the highest quality products and building the UK's leading CBD Wellness brands, we have prioritized new product development to help people in this period".

The shares were trading at around 2.9p on the NEX exchange in late-afternoon on Tuesday.
