Unfortunately, as many of our members have experienced, getting a prescription for medical cannabis is far from straight forward. Even patients who have self-medicated for years may find it a struggle to get a prescription due to some onerous regulations imposed by the UK’s MHRA. Many patients may also struggle with the cost, since the only way to obtain a prescription currently is through private clinics. 

However, the UK’s clinics all understand the challenges and try to make the process as simple as possible. These guides are written to introduce some of the basics for a patient who wants to get a prescription enabling them to consume cannabis to treat their condition.

Get Involved to Earn Tokens

Our starter guides & articles are written by and for our community. They’re intended as “dynamic”articles, similar to a Wiki, meaning they’re intended to be updated as and when new information becomes available. We found that AI such as ChatGPT can write a good first draft, as long as an editor checks it first. However, we invite our community to collaborate to make the information as comprehensive as possible. In return, you can earn Tokens that get you discounts and voting rights.

If you’d like to earn Tokens by editing articles, please apply for a role.

If you have a proposal to write an article, an earn tokens for your efforts, please make a Proposal.
