About The Medical Cannabis Clinicians Society


The Medical Cannabis Clinicians Society gives clinicians the opportunity to share practical knowledge, develop transparent and independent guidance and lead the conversation as doctors in the sector.

As more and more doctors begin to prescribe medical cannabis for their patients, the Society provides a confidential, independent network for clinicians to share experiences in patient consultation, prescribing, accessing products and treatments, research and evidence.

Members of the Society have access to further information including prescribing guidelines, a secure online support network and discounts to training and events.

The Medical Cannabis Clinicians Society is a community interest company: Medcan Clinicians Society CIC (company# 12000732).
