For those leading the company, this has been a very personal mission to produce a high-quality trial for cannabis-based medicines. James Short (CEO and co-founder of Celadon Pharmaceuticals Plc) saw his sister’s experience of living with multiple sclerosis for years and also witnessed first-hand the potential benefits of cannabis-based medicines for her condition.
