Dr. Jonathan Grunfeld

VP Medical Innovation
Suffering from chronic back pain for over 15 years I have struggled to maintain effective sleep due to constantly tossing and turning to get comfortable. Using MP1:1 25mg/ml CBD 25mg/ml THC not only helps with my pain, but it also relaxes my body and ensures that my sleep patterns are more consistent.

Australia
I was diagnosed with Shingles a few years ago and after being in constant pain I was advised to try CBD Oil. After trying a few different products, I decided to try MGC’s CannEpil and I have found that it has helped to reduce the severe headaches I was suffering from and made life so much brighter.
