Pain conditions and symptoms
Do you, or does your patient, suffer from pain? If you’ve exhausted all other pain relief options then medical cannabis could be the right treatment option for you.
Current first-line pharmaceutical treatments like opioids present a risk of dependency, while NSAIDs (Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) can also be harmful if overused due to toxicity issues and gastrointestinal side effects.
Fortunately, there’s substantial evidence that suggests medical cannabis treatment for chronic pain issues is more effective and less harmful than opioid or NSAID medication.
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 pain condition
- You have or can get access to your patient notes

How medical cannabis works:
Medical cannabis treatment modulates pain through the use of phytocannabinoids, which interact with the endocannabinoid and other neurotransmitter systems in the body that are involved in the pain response.
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.
