Is medical cannabis legal in the UK?
Medical cannabis is legal in the UK but can only be prescribed for a chronic condition where two previous medications or treatments have failed. In November 2018, the UK government rescheduled cannabis-based medicinal products, moving them from Schedule 1 to Schedule 2 of the Misuse of Drugs Regulations 2001. This change recognised that cannabis-based medicinal products have therapeutic benefits and can be prescribed by specialist doctors.
Medical cannabis has been available to access from our London-based clinic since 2022. We offer a range of prescription options in the form of cannabis flower, oil, cartridges, and capsules in various combinations of THC, CBD, and balanced profiles.
Our consultants are specialists in finding the most suitable medical cannabis prescription for each patient and their condition and we encourage patients to have transparent conversations with their Mamedica doctor during their consultations.
