Today Medical Cannabis Network will be giving you an exclusive inside look at the journey of a UK pharmacist bringing medical cannabis prescriptions into the UK.
In November 2018 medical cannabis was made legal in the UK. Since then, only a handful of patients have been prescribed the medicine. Those that have a medical cannabis prescription do not have an easy time getting it – each prescription is ordered on a named patient basis.
Medicinal cannabis can be in the form of flower or oil and, although some can be imported into the UK, if a certain medicinal product does not have a licence to be exported it has to be collected by a licensed supplier.
