GW Pharmaceuticals plc Company Profile

09:51 EDT 20th March 2018 | BioPortfolio

GW was founded in early 1998 by Dr Geoffrey Guy, GW's Executive Chairman. Shortly thereafter, Dr Guy was joined by Dr Brian Whittle, thereby reuniting the team that previously founded the company which became the plant-medicines company Phytopharm plc, which floated on the Official List of the London Stock Exchange in April 1996.
The first Home Office licenses to cultivate, possess and supply cannabis for research purposes were received in June 1998 and cultivation began in August 1998. GW has always worked closely with the Home Office and the Police to ensure strict security of all cannabis materials and will continue to do so.
