Accessing medical cannabis in the UK
Since November 2018, cannabis-based medicines have been available in the UK through a legal prescription from specialist doctors. But despite overwhelming support, they are rarely prescribed on the NHS or outside of private medical practices, and are only accessible through a costly private prescription.

We’ll take a look at how to access medical cannabis and get a private prescription, as well as link you to support organisations that can provide more information.
