Today marks the beginning of Medical Cannabis Week 2021 #MCAW2021 – a week long event of awareness started by PLEA Community last year.

Medical Cannabis has been legal in the UK since November 2018, when the law was changed to make cannabis a schedule 2 controlled substance – this means that under the right circumstances, it can be prescribed as a medicine in the UK.

Since then it has been changing the lives of patients who have benefited from treatment for a wide range of conditions, from pain, neurological, psychiatric and so many more.

This year, the focus of #MCAW2021 is real-world evidence in evolving access to medical cannabis treatment – which is something that is very important to us. We’re proud partners of The Academy of Medical Cannabis which through it’s online Evidence Base provides free access to hundreds of curated research items, providing a wealth of evidence on the use of medical cannabis.
