Yes, by prescription. In the United Kingdom, medical cannabis is legal, but it is still a controlled substance and is only available on prescription. In order to prescribe medical cannabis, a doctor must be registered with the General Medical Council (GMC) and must follow the guidelines set out by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).
Potential side effects depend on the specific strain, dosage, and the individual biology of the patient.
Possible side effects can include:
■ Dry mouth
■ Dry eyes
■ Impaired judgement
■ Paranoia or anxiety
■ Increased heart rate
It’s important to note that these side effects are generally mild and temporary, and most people do not experience significant problems when using medical cannabis. If you have been prescribed medical cannabis and are experiencing significant side effects, be sure to discuss this with your Treat it specialist doctor. They can help you determine the best course of treatment for your specific needs.
Begin by scheduling an appointment. You’ll need to complete a short eligibility questionnaire as well as authorise our access to your NHS Summary Care record.
Together with you, your doctor will review your medical history and assess your suitability for treatment. Afterwards, your case will be submitted to a specialised medical team for further review and assessment. If approved, we will issue your prescription for your approval. The entire process normally takes between 2-5 days.
Once we receive your approval and payment, your prescription will be sent to your nominated pharmacy for dispatch.
Book an appointment for £79.99. Medication costs will vary according to your prescription. Please see our conditions page for more information. We accept credit/debit card payment. When booking an appointment or ordering a prescription, you will be taken to a checkout page to complete your transaction. We do not keep your credit card information on record.
We’re sorry to hear that! Please contact us to let us know why. We’ll do our best to help.
To assess your suitability for treatment, our doctors will need access to your NHS record. Normally, private clinics will ask you to procure your Summary Care record from your GP.
However, our doctors have access to this information directly, and can access an electronic summary without needing to request it specifically from your GP.
The NHS Summary Care Record is a copy of key information which provides our doctors with faster, secure access to essential information about you if required. Please be aware, we will never seek your information without your explicit consent. As part of the registration process, you will be asked to authorise us to access your Summary Care Record.
You can cancel your appointment up to 24 hours prior. We won’t be able to issue a refund for appointments that have been cancelled within 24 hours of their start time. To cancel, please reach out to our support team.

It is important to note that while the vast majority of people who use cannabis do not develop an addiction to it, some people may experience a dependence on cannabis, particularly if they use it heavily and over a long period of time.
According to some studies, the risk of developing a cannabis use disorder or addiction is generally lower than 10%.
Cannabis use disorder is characterised by the inability to stop using cannabis despite experiencing negative consequences as a result of its use. Cannabis use disorder can range from mild to severe, and it may develop into addiction in some cases.
However, it is important to note that the risk of developing a cannabis use disorder or addiction is generally lower than the risk associated with the use of other substances, such as alcohol or opioids.
Additionally, the potential negative consequences of cannabis use disorder or addiction can be managed and treated successfully with appropriate medical care.
It is important for medical cannabis patients to be aware of the potential for cannabis use disorder or addiction and to use cannabis responsibly as part of their treatment plan. If you have concerns about your cannabis use, it is important to speak with a healthcare professional for guidance and support.
Cannabis may produce undesirable effects such as dizziness and drowsiness which may impair judgement and performance of skilled tasks. Patients should not drive, operate machinery or engage in any hazardous activity if they are experiencing any significant central nervous system (CNS) effects such as dizziness or drowsiness.
