Medicinal Cannabis

The first thing that you need to do is talk to us about using Medical Cannabis as a treatment.

If the condition is new, we are likely to recommend that you try other conventional treatments first.

Before prescribing medicinal cannabis our doctor will assess each patient to decide if the treatment is appropriate for your condition and individual circumstances. The doctor will also consider the patient’s current medications and any other things that may Interact with Medicinal Cannabis prescription.


The main cannabinoids in cannabis are THC and CBD: Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the most well-known cannabinoid due to its psychoactive properties and therefore its prevalence within black market cannabis that has been specifically cultivated to get a user “high”

THC may also be responsible for some of the medicinal effects of cannabis such as reduction of nausea, vomiting pain and muscle spasms as well as improvements in sleep and appetite.

Cannabidiol (CBD) has been found to reduce the ‘high’ caused by THC and may also be effective for seizures, pain, and may reduce anxiety. CBD causes no ‘high’ feeling, and patients can drive when using CBD. CBD is not psychoactive (it won’t make you feel ‘high’) and it may be useful in the management of seizures, pain, and may have anxiolytic and antipsychotic effects. Different cannabis strains contain different ratios of THC to CBD.
