Donating blood is a selfless act and yet very few of us take the time out to do this. Giving blood can also be mired by issues if you use Cannabis or Cannabis products.
Blood transfusion saves life’s the world over and unfortunately many patients who require transfusion have limited access to safe blood.
Around 112.5million units of blood are collected globally, nearly half (47%) of these donations come from high income developed countries, home to less than 19% of the world’s population. Countries need to ensure the blood collected is enough for its requirements and also free from HIV, Hepatitis viruses, and other infections.
