How do I access medical cannabis in the UK?
It’s important to note, medical cannabis is classed as a second-line treatment. This means patients need to have tried two or more prior treatments, therapies or medicines as prescribed by their GP or specialist to then be eligible for medical cannabis treatment.
Can I get medical cannabis via the NHS?
Medical cannabis via the NHS is incredibly limited and typically only prescribed in severe circumstances for rare epilepsy, vomiting or nausea caused by chemotherapy and certain cases of muscle stiffness caused by multiple sclerosis. The majority of patients who are helped with medical cannabis access their treatment via a private clinic such as Mamedica.
