Otta's take on Leva

Theo Margolius headshot

Theo Margolius

COO of Otta

The Medical cannabis market is growing in the UK since it was legalised in 2018. Unfortunately, in many cases the quality of the product hasn't been great. There's also a lot of work to do on helping people become more aware of the legalisation and benefits of medical cannabis when it is properly administered.

1 in 5 people in the UK suffer from chronic pain. Unfortunately, it can take the NHS up to 2 years to even see some of these patients, and that is on average for a cost of 60K a year.

That's why Leva is set up as an end to end chronic pain clinic. They specialise in helping people with a holistic chronic pain plan, and support patients throughout their journey. In doing so, they don't simply send people off with medical cannabis. Leva ensures the products are of the highest quality vs the market standard (illegal and regulated).

Total funding - $3.8m
