What are the Costs of Medical Cannabis Prescriptions in the UK?

Prescriptions for medical cannabis plant images in the UK are issued on a monthly basis and can cost anywhere between £2 and £10 per day. The price of the flower typically starts at £5 per gram, which is usually prescribed in bags of 10 to 30 g. The price of oil usually starts at £30 for a 10 ml bottle. Although many patients have a positive experience with medical cannabis plant images and report an improved quality of life, the cost can be prohibitive for some. Prices may also vary between different brands, as medical cannabis medicines are produced by private manufacturers in the UK.

The Twenty21 project is working to make medical cannabis more accessible by providing eligible patients with subsidized costs. When starting treatment, patients are usually prescribed a very low dose, usually less than 0.1 g of flower or 0.1 ml of oil per dose. Medical cannabis would only be prescribed when it was considered to be in your best interest and when other treatments hadn't worked or weren't adequate. You can request a copy of your prescription and take it to any pharmacy that sells medical cannabis products in the UK.

However, while CBD is known to have some health benefits, it is not the same as medical cannabis and should not be consumed in place of formal treatment agreed upon by a doctor. The price of medical cannabis can vary widely in the UK, starting with free if you can get a prescription through the NHS. Since medical cannabis is a personalized treatment, the cost can vary significantly depending on the product, the dose and whether the drug is subsidized under an access plan. Bedrocan is a Dutch producer of cannabis flowers and the only company in the world that has the proven ability to produce standardized cannabis (whole, dried flower) containing constant levels of cannabinoids.
