1. The virtual health revolution:

The digitisation of healthcare is a trend that continues to gain momentum in the UK. Health apps, wearable technologies (like fitness trackers), and online GPs are empowering individuals to take charge of their health. 

At Mamedica, we offer virtual consultations to all patients, making it easier than ever for eligible adults to access our service online. With us, you can obtain safe and legal medical cannabis treatment without leaving the house! 

2. Mindful eating and drinking:

Nutritional awareness reached new heights in 2023, with individuals recognising the impact of diet on overall health. This year, plant-based diets, mindful eating, and sustainable food choices are set to gain popularity as people strive to boost their health and immunity. There’s also been a shift to natural healthcare routes, with people opting for alternatives to traditional medicines.

Cannabis-based prescription medicines provide a natural alternative to traditional medications, offering relief from chronic pain, inflammation, and other common ailments while also improving your ability to sleep and focus.

3. Personalised CBD treatment:

Cannabidiol (CBD) is the non-psychoactive substance found in the cannabis sativa plant. There are currently around 3 million CBD users in the UK using it as a holistic alternative to prescription medications to treat chronic pain, neuropathic conditions and some mental health conditions. 

When consumed orally or by inhalation, CBD interacts with neuroreceptors in your endocannabinoid system, which helps to regulate your movement, mood, homeostasis, and immune system.

4. The rise of holistic health:

In 2024, the emphasis on holistic well-being transcends traditional approaches to health. People now recognise the vital connection between physical, mental, and emotional health. As a result, there’s a surge in interest in practices that nourish the whole self, such as mindfulness, meditation, and personalised treatment plans.

At Mamedica, we recognise that a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to health is ineffective. Our treatment plans are designed to work for you and with you, by taking into account the unique nature of your condition.

5. Sleep goes back to basics:

According to research carried out by Mamedica, 51% of UK adults say they find it hard to sleep at night but do not want to use prescription medication as it makes them feel groggy. 

Adults are choosing to prioritise good quality sleep this year by using sleep trackers and apps to develop a healthy nighttime routine. For those who struggle with a sleep condition such as insomnia, plant-based treatments like medical cannabis can provide a natural alternative to traditional medication.

For some patients, sleep issues are linked to a primary underlying condition associated with chronic pain. In these cases, medical cannabis can provide relief for a patient by reducing pain which enables sleep to improve.
