MCCS Supporting Clinicians

First published in 2019, the Medical Cannabis Clinicians Society worked with  the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Medical Cannabis under Prescription to produce its guidance for medical cannabis.

Newly updated for 2020, Recommendations and Guidance on Medical Cannabis under Prescription by The Medical Cannabis Clinicians Society sets out the facts about medical cannabis treatments – history, evidence and prescribing information.

It is important for medical practitioners to be fully aware of the range of opinion and evidence on this matter in order to reach a balanced prescribing decision in the best interests of their patients. We hope that this guidance assists in that process.

This guidance includes information about who can prescribe medical cannabis, prescribing and prescriptions, conditions, funding and more.

Use these guidelies in conjuction with our information for clinicians interested in becoming a medical cannabis presciber.
