Cannabis Derived Medication
The government has announced the next step in allowing access to medicinal cannabis by proposing to reschedule medicinal cannabis.
Then a General Medical Council registered specialist doctor, not your local GP, will be able to prescribe the medicine on three conditions.
- Firstly, so long as it is a cannabinoid-containing product.
- Secondly, it is manufactured as a medicine and to all suitable standards
- Thirdly, it must be registered as a medicinal product.
Our view is that these three steps in manufacture and registration could take a little while, as could a suitable network of registered specialists.
Until that point, suitable patients can still apply through the intermediate scheme as described in the latest government report Click here
Even though this may seem slow, this is government at full speed!
