Helping others is
what we do!

Seed our Future was established in 2020 as a campaign
organisation to protect those who use cannabis responsibly,
whether that be for medical, nutritional, spiritual or
environmental purposes.

Truth is Our Sword

As the world wakes up to the truth surrounding the relative safety, the powerful health, medicinal, nutritional and environmental properties of cannabis, and the real truths surrounding the past century of escalating prohibition globally, the UK legislation remains stagnant as the UK Government remains adamant in regurgitating the influential voices of the past in that this non-toxic benign plant is a danger to individuals and society. Nothing could be further from the truth; it is the prohibition that causes the harms.It was the British Government, who instigated one of the most detailed reports into the safety of cannabis via a Royal Commission 130 years ago. A succession of governmental reports, scientific papers since, which have confirmed the results of the above-mentioned commission have been ignored and the war on cannabis users in the UK has continued for 99 years.
As our government has furiously defended the obvious mistakes of the past, they have desperately depended on self-commissioned, inconclusive reports, in an attempt to keep face with the public. This so called ‘war on drugs’ has been a spectacular failure in its intentions and has caused insurmountable harm upon its people, society, our economy and the environment.

Human Rights Violations

Seed our Future have developed reports outlining the human rights violations via criminalisation of people cultivating, possessing and using an essential non-toxic medicinal herb for health and wellbeing via supporting their endo-cannabinoid system. In order for legislation to be viable in regards to human rights, it must correspond with the legitimate aims of the legislation, be proportionate, necessary in a democratic country and not violate human rights. In regards to the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971, this is clearly not the case. The science has been pushed to one side in favour of political and financial goals and we find the legislation, particularly the Class B and Schedule 1 status of cannabis to be ‘ultra vires’, unlawful.
We have used the same methodology for driving legislation where we have proved that global scientific consensus shows that blood tests of THC have no correlation to impairment or recent use and in most cases, shows the inactive residue of THC days or even weeks after consumption. If there is no evidence of impairment or an active psychoactive drug in the drivers body, how can they be criminally prosecuted for ‘drug driving’?


‘If something doesn’t work, try something different.’
Protests, petitions, contacting ministers, chief constables, police and crime commissioners has all been attempted to no avail.Challenging the law in a court directly is not possible, however well prepared the evidence.Even challenging the law using the law (Human rights) has proved to be extremely difficult, frustrating and expensive as cases are consistently adjourned and this game of cat and mouse could go on for years.
We have determined that the best way forward would be to implement judicial reviews to challenge the inclusion of cannabis within both the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 and Section 5A/6 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 under the Human Rights Act 1998. These judicial reviews would have the opportunity to seek a ‘declaration of incompatibility’ and thus find the subordinate legislation to be unlawful.

Unity Our Shield

Now is the time for the community to come together and end this century long war. We are prepared to fight the final battle but as with any war, we need funding to pay for these judicial reviews. We are confident that the evidence speaks for itself and that our legal arguments are solid. Help us to prove that in the high court by donating today and help us fight for truth and justice for all.

Together, we are stronger!

Patient Support

Following the legislative change on 1st November 2018 allowing medical cannabis to be prescribed by specialist consultants, numerous private clinics and pharmacies have been established. As of May 2024, there are 40,000 patients, with numbers expected to increase rapidly.
Despite a Home Office circular in 2018, frontline officers, law firms, the crown prosecution service, and judges remain ignorant of the law, wrongfully arresting patients and ignoring the legislation. This ignorance extends across society, causing 'prescription discrimination' and serious harm to patients, many of whom are disabled. For the past three years, we have provided free support to many patients but lack the resources to assist everyone as the patient numbers grow.
Its time for Seed our Future to plant our seed of truth, overgrow the government and end the stigma.
We are asking patients to donate £30 per annum to support our work and help us grow our team so that we can continue to help you.

A Brief History

10,000 Years Ago

The use of cannabis cord in pottery was identified at an ancient village site, dating back over 10,000 years ago, located in modern-day Taiwan. Finding cannabis use and cultivation in this date range puts it as one of the first and oldest known human agriculture crops.

2737 BCE

Cannabis was the first medicine to be documented in human history – by Emperor Shen Nung in 2737 BCE and it has been used in Chinese medicine to treat over 120 medical conditions.

800-1800 AD

Cannabis was widely grown across Britain from at least 800 to 1800 AD, though the amount grown varied widely through the centuries. In Medieval times religious hospitals commonly grew cannabis.


It was mainly grown for fibre which was used to make sails, ropes, fishing nets and clothes; old clothes were recycled into paper. The Gutenburg Bible (15th Century) and the King James Bible (17th Century) were printed on hemp paper and our rich history of art was painted on hemp canvas. In fact, until the late 1800’s, approximately 90% of paper was made from hemp. Oil was produced from the seeds and was burned in lamps. The seeds and flowers were also used in food, as a livestock feed and as a medicine/relaxant or served to prisoners and orphans as gruel.


In 1533, King Henry VIII made the cultivation of cannabis compulsory by law. The Tudor King wanted the strong, rot resistant fibres from the plant for the ropes, sails and clothing for his new British navy which famously beat the Spanish Armada, got us through the Reformation (the Brexit of the time) and led to the colonisation of the British Empire. Every ship carried a cargo of hemp seed and this was the first crop laid down upon the discovery of new lands. There was an early peak in hemp production in England from 800 - 1000 AD, followed by a slackening in interest by farmers as new crops were discovered. In the early sixteenth century hemp was re-introduced, and its growth recommended. Large amounts of hemp were grown in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, but not enough for the British Navy - the war against Napoleon’s France in 1812 was fought, in part, to control the supplies of Russian hemp. In Victorian times peasant produced imported hemp undercut domestic hemp, and its growth died out in Britain.


In 1833, Irish physician William Brooke O'Shaughnessy was employed by the British East India Company as an assistant surgeon in Calcutta where he studied and researched the medicinal properties of cannabis for the treatment of cholera, rabies, rheumatism, tetanus and childhood epilepsy.


In 1856, the same year of the second opium war in China, the British Government decided to tax the cannabis trade in India and two years later, Queen Victoria was crowned Empress of India and the British Government realised that they could increase their revenues by raising the tax on cannabis.


In 1890, Sir J.R. Reynolds, Queen Victoria’s personal physician, prescribed the Queen with a cannabis preparation for menstrual pains.
