A decision within weeks, that looks like some positive news. I gather that they are talking about removing it from Schedule 1 - no medical use, to Schedule 2 - alongside opium. At last, they will be able to carry out testing on the plant.
This link: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-44703818 also gives a list of medical conditions that are recognised already…
Prof Dame Sally Davies said there was conclusive evidence of therapeutic benefit of prescribing cannabis-based products for certain medical conditions.
That list includes treating:
- chronic pain
- nausea and vomiting caused as a side-effect of cancer therapies such as chemo
- muscle spasticity symptoms in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients
Let’s see what the next three weeks will bring.
My question is - will we be able to get a prescription, as they do in the Netherlands, and apply for medicine from https://bedrocan.com/ until such times as there is a UK provider?
Interesting times ahead.
