Gastroenterological conditions and symptoms
Do you, or does your patient, suffer from a gastroenterological condition? If you’ve exhausted all other first-line treatment options then medical cannabis could be the right option for you.
Medical cannabis can act as a potential alternative when conventional treatment options have failed as the novel functioning of the endocannabinoid system, which can be altered through the consumption of cannabis-based medicines, may be linked to the regulation of gastrointestinal motility.
Due to the distribution of CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors throughout the digestive tract, medical cannabis may also help to reduce intestinal inflammation, meaning medical cannabis could also be a viable treatment option for a number of other gastroenterological conditions and symptoms.
If you satisfy the following conditions, you will be eligible to meet with one of our consultants:
- You’ve found other treatment options unsuccessful
- You are suffering from a gastroenterological condition
- You have or can get access to your patient notes

How medical cannabis is distinct from high street cannabis:
While you can buy products that may seem like medical cannabis on the high street, like CBD oil or hemp oil, there’s no guarantee that these products are good quality or will have any health benefits.
Medical cannabis that’s available through prescription, like the treatments we offer, is regulated to a high standard and is only offered after a comprehensive health assessment from one of our specialists. In this case, you can be sure you’re getting high quality care with safe and effective products.
Although there can be some side effects with these stronger, medical grade products, our clinical specialists monitor and adjust the prescribed medication accordingly on a regular basis to reduce these side effects as much as possible to ensure you’re satisfied with your care.
Some gastroenterological conditions we can treat at The Medical Cannabis Clinics include:
- Crohn’s disease
- Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
