Got a question about our pharmacy service?

Is medical cannabis legal in the UK?

Medical cannabis has been legal in the UK since November 2018 if it has been prescribed by a doctor. The doctor must be a specialist prescriber and registered with he General Medical Council (GMC).

You need a prescription to get medical cannabis and to see your specialist prescriber, when
required, for follow-up appointments.


What form does medical cannabis come in?

The medical cannabis we can get from our suppliers comes in five main forms:

  1. Dried medical cannabis flower
  2. Medical cannabis oil
  3. Medical cannabis capsules
  4. Medical cannabis pastilles
  5. Medical cannabis liquid vape cartridges

The type of medical cannabis you will receive will be discussed and prescribed by your doctor.


How much does medical cannabis cost?

As there are lots of different forms and strengths, the cost of medical cannabis depends on your prescription.

As medical cannabis is currently not covered by the NHS the things you will need to consider are:

  • The form of the medical cannabis product,
  • The amount you need to last you one month
  • Cost of the appointments with a specialist doctor
  • Cost of new or repeat prescriptions

Do I qualify for medical cannabis?

To find out if medical cannabis is right for you, you need to speak to a specialist doctor that is able to prescribe medical cannabis.

Depending on your condition and other treatment options you have tried, the specialist prescriber might decide that you qualify for medical cannabis.

You can find a specialist prescriber at certain hospitals or medical cannabis clinics like Curaleaf Clinic.


How is medical cannabis different from CBD products?

Unlike CBD products, which can be bought at online, at shops, and from pharmacies, medical cannabis contains THC and needs to be prescribed by doctors that are specialist prescribers.

CBD products shouldn’t legally contain any THC and are manufactured in a different way to medical cannabis.


Who can prescribe medical cannabis in the UK?

Only doctors that are specialist medical cannabis prescribers that are registered with the General Medical Council (GMC) are able to prescribe medical cannabis.

Flu and Covid Vaccination
Perfect all round. Convenient location, easy booking process online, easy, free parking. Very well organised service, great, friendly staff and even saw me straightaway having turned up an hour early by mistake. Much quicker than going to the GP, will definitely use again.
