Introduced in 2003, Bedrocan® is the brand name for the cultivar Cannabis sativa L. ‘Afina’.

Today, Bedrocan produces five cannabis products or plant varieties for medicine development, patients and clinical use. Each cannabis product is standardised according to pharmaceutical standards with a defined active ingredient composition. Every stage of the manufacturing process is GMP-certified (good manufacturing practice). GMP is a requirement of the pharmaceutical industry and it ensures consistency in active ingredients, which can affect a medicine’s safety and efficacy.

Our cannabis products are independently tested for desired properties by a specialised laboratory. The products currently available are listed below.

Cannabis sativa L. ‘Afina’ is the first cultivar developed and it features 22% THC, with a CBD-level below 1%. It’s the most widely used medicinal cannabis product and has been used in more research than other products.

As a very simple guide, here are the most common medicinal uses for indica and sativa cannabis:

Balanced hybrids exhibit characteristics from both types of cannabis. This can be an advantage, for example when medicinal cannabis has been prescribed to relieve chronic pain, something for which both indica and sativa strains are suitable. Adding sativa genes to an indica strain can aid mental clarity and decrease sedative effects; introducing indica to sativa strains can lower the tendency of pure sativas to occasionally stimulate anxiety.

In the rest of Europe, many countries now have some form of medicinal cannabis program. These range from only permitting products containing cannabinoids (such as Sativex) to being able to obtain cannabis flowers with a prescription. In the latter case, cannabis can be prescribed for people suffering from:

What Are Cannabis Terpenes and Their Medicinal Uses?

Together, cannabinoids and terpenes make up a whole greater than the sum of their parts. This synergy is known as the entourage effect. Research into the entourage effect is still in its early stages. A study from 2019 suggests it is likely that terpenes and terpenoids act upon the brain pathways involved with the effects of cannabis, or perhaps affect how THC is metabolised.

Cannabis is one of the oldest, if not the oldest, medicines used by humankind. The oldest written reference to it is found in a Chinese medical text dating from 200 – 300 BCE. There are claims that the text, and therefore the established medicinal uses of cannabis, date back to 2800 BCE. This is based upon when the supposed author, Emperor Shen Nong, was reportedly ruling China.

The different medicinal effects of indica and sativa strains were previously thought to be determined by the levels of the two best-known cannabinoids, cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Indica strains were believed to contain more CBD (cannabidiol) and less THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). Sativa varieties were believed to have the opposite, greater amounts of THC and less CBD.

Our top five indica cannabis strains are:

When asking yourself ‘how do I choose a medicinal cannabis strain?’ it is useful to have a basic understanding of the differences between indica strains and sativa strains in terms of their medical applications.

As the popularity of cannabis as a medicine grows, so too does the number of patients who prefer to consume their medicine with little to no psychoactive effects. Sensi Seeds has responded to this demand with the introduction of several strains that are high in CBD and low in THC.
