Medical Cannabis

Medical Cannabis is an unlicensed medicine and is regulated by the MHRA in the UK under the definition of CBPMs. Medical cannabis can help with certain medical conditions, that have been hard to treat with licensed medications. Medical cannabis may help people who have already tried at least two licensed medicines, which have failed to meet their clinical need. Through a detailed assessment our specialist team will establish if they think the treatments we offer will be beneficial to your specific condition.

Everyone has an Endocannabinoid System, which is our internal regulator. Activation or inhibition of this regulator has an effect on our nervous system, immune system, cognition, blood pressure, sleep and how we process pain signals.

The Cannabis Plant from which medical cannabis is produced is thought to contain over 100 different cannabinoids, each one may have a different effect on the body. The two most understood cannabinoids are CBD and THC and they are the main cannabinoids used in medicine to date.

Medical cannabis products are often classified as CBD dominant, THC Dominant or a balance of the CBD and THC. As a result, the different medical properties of the CBD and THC lead to a different therapeutic effect. Therefore, the specific product and the ratio of CBD and THC will depend on your individual condition.

Evidence suggests that THC is beneficial in chronic pain conditions such as neuropathic pain, fibromyalgia, inflammation, insomnia, chemotherapy nausea and vomiting. Whilst CBD is beneficial for anxiety, inflammation and epilepsy.
