Find out more about Medical Cannabis and have all your questions answered here. We explore a number of questions for new patients considering medical cannabis as a potential treatment.

About medical cannabis

If you have a letter of referral then please bring it to your appointment together with any details of existing or previous medications taken for your current condition.

The Medical Cannabis Clinic is committed to providing a safe and comfortable environment for patients. A chaperoning service is available on request. Please let us know, at the time of booking, if you require a chaperone for your appointment.

The clinic is telemedicine and cannabis will be delivered

We are obligated to use the dispensary

Treatment costs from $150 to $300 per month, depending on condition and individual circumstances.

Where clinically appropriate, telemedicine is a safe, effective and a valuable modality to support patient care.

After meeting with one of our specialists, we can have your prescription dropped off at a specific location, we can have it delivered or you can go to your own dispensary.

Becoming a patient

We recommend that you speak with your insurance company to confirm whether your plan will cover the costs.

A referral letter allows The Medical Cannabis Clinic specialist to understand more about your condition, symptoms and treatment history from your specialist consultant, GP or other healthcare professionals involved in your care.

If you do not have a referral letter, you will be asked to complete a simple questionnaire and return it to us along with a 10-year medical summary, the results of any recent blood tests and any letters from specialists currently overseeing your care. Patients can obtain this information from their GP and specialists.

We will then contact you to discuss an appointment with our GP.

Treatments and prescriptions

Medical cannabis can be used for symptom relief in a variety of conditions where other first-line medications and conventional drugs have failed, such as with many types of chronic pain conditions, neuropathic pain and psychiatric disorders.

If you are unsure whether you are a good candidate to benefit from medical cannabis, you have two options: you can see your own GP or specialist to discuss a referral to The Medical Cannabis Clinics for treatment or you can make an appointment

CBD oils found without a prescription in the Texas are made from industrial hemp. Industrial hemp is strains of the cannabis plant that have been cloned and bred to remove the THC (or psychoactive content) to less than 0.2%. These products vary in cost and quality and are not regulated as medication so we do not recommend their use for medicinal purposes.

Medical cannabis that contains higher amounts of THC (the psychoactive content) carry a small risk of habituation and addiction if used daily for chronic use, but the risk is lower than with other classes of medications such as opioid pain medications and possibly lower than benzodiazepines for anxiety and sleep. Your medical cannabis specialist will monitor you closely for signs of addiction to minimize this risk and choose specific products with lower risk appropriate for your symptoms.

We hope that medical cannabis will soon become available for patients on the NHS(National Health Service). The Medical Cannabis Clinics enable appropriate access to treatment for people with unmet needs who are currently unable to access the treatment through the NHS.
