Research Nature Institute and FIST – human rights association are monitoring the products on the slovenian market. Both – legal and illegal.
Cannabis extracts and cannabis use are widely spread among slovenian patients, mostly oncologycal, neurological and patients with autoimmune deseases.
Since the state was not able to regulate this field, patients are mostly using products from black market or from their own production (60%). But those products are too often of poor quality and patients are left by themselves without knowledge of proper dosing and administration ways.
Quality of extracts and way of administration is crucial, so he decided to test the products in RNI lab with HPLC and GC/MS and advise patients how to use cannabis products properly, to achieve best results.
On this way we obtained precious insight about cannabis use among patients, quality of the products and the results.
