Cannabis trial for long-term patients

-

A LANDMARK trial is being launched into using cannabis to treat Long Covid.

Some 30 patients suffering with lasting symptoms such as exhaustion, muscle pain, anxiety and sleeplessn­ess will be given cannabis oil twice a day.

The oil has been shown to work for some patients suffering from other forms of post-viral fatigue.

Trial lead Dr Elizabeth Iveson, from Steps rehabilita­tion unit in Sheffield, said: “There is potential medical cannabis could also be effective as part of the management of patients with Long Covid.”
