Frequently asked questions
Is medical cannabis legal in Wales?
Medical cannabis is legal in Wales for limited medical use. In 2018, the UK government announced that specialist doctors could prescribe cannabis-based medicines for certain conditions, such as severe epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, and chemotherapy-induced nausea.
However, cannabis is a controlled substance and is primarily regulated under the Misuse of Drugs Act of 1971, indicating that the recreational use of cannabis is still illegal in Wales.
How do I get a prescription for medical cannabis in Wales?
To get a prescription for medical cannabis in Wales, patients must be assessed by a specialist doctor who decides whether their condition qualifies for medical cannabis treatment.
It may take several consultations to determine if cannabis-based treatment suits the patient. Once the doctor decides that cannabis-based treatment is necessary, they may prescribe it in various forms.
What conditions can be treated with medical cannabis?
In Wales, medical cannabis can treat specific medical conditions, including epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, chemotherapy-induced nausea, and pain control for certain types of cancer or certain chronic conditions such as spinal cord injuries, fibromyalgia, and Crohn’s disease. However, due to the limited infrastructure of legal access to medical cannabis, patients may struggle to access treatment, even if their doctors have determined it would be beneficial.
Are there side effects or risks associated with medical cannabis treatment?
There are potential side effects and risks of using medical cannabis, including drowsiness, dizziness, impaired judgment, dry mouth, and nausea. Additionally, medical cannabis may interact with other medications, so it’s vital to consult a doctor before consuming it.
Can medical cannabis be used in conjunction with other medications or treatments?
Medical cannabis can be used with other prescriptions or treatments. Still, it’s essential to consult with doctors, as it may interact with some medications, especially drugs that suppress the immune system, such as corticosteroids.
Combining medical cannabis with other treatments may also require modifications to dosages, timing, or routes of administration to minimise the risk of potential side effects or potential for decreased effectiveness.
How long does it typically take to see the effects of medical cannabis treatment?
The time frame for medical cannabis effects depends on the administration method, dosage, and the patient’s health condition. Some forms of administration, such as inhalation, may provide instant relief, while oral consumption may take an hour or more to take effect.
It is essential to start with minimal doses and gradually increase before deciding on a particular treatment since individual reactions to medication vary.
