Prescribing medical cannabis to your patients
At Botanical Health Dispensary, we support doctors looking for a consistent, professional and safe way to prescribe medical cannabis for their patients.
You and your patients can trust our expert knowledge of the entire process, from ordering to dispensing to when they receive their medication.
Caroline Harvey, the owner and Pharmacist of our allied pharmacy, Leyes Lane, fulfilled the NHS’s first medical cannabis prescription in 2018 and is experienced in processing private prescriptions from across the UK.
As an independent organisation with no alliance to a specific clinic, we can arrange access to a wide range of cannabis-based medicinal products via Leyes Lane Pharmacy.
In the first instance, please email Botanical Health Dispensary and we will contact you with the next steps to send a copy of the prescription.
This allows the team at Leyes Lane Pharmacy to check the availability of the medication and start the process. We then ask you to post the original prescription to them.
Patients have 28 days from the prescription issue date to have medical cannabis products dispensed by a pharmacy. The prescription issue date is considered Day 1, so this means patients must receive medication by the 28th day.
Through Leyes Lane Pharmacy, we can facilitate the dispensing of medical cannabis products from Althea, Aurora, Bedrocan, Cellen, Emmac /Rokshaw (Adven range), GW Pharma, Khiron, Lyphe Group (Noidecs), Medcan SA, Spectrum and Tilray.
Support & advice for doctors
Since medical cannabis became legal on prescription in 2018, organisations have developed to support clinicians who would like to prescribe this life-changing treatment. Follow the links below to find out more.
The Medical Cannabis Clinicians Society is an independent not-for-profit group of doctors and healthcare professionals. It provides peer and expert support for prescribing doctors, online and face to face education and free resources which guide doctors through the process of training, dosing and prescribing.
Charity Drug Science provides an independent evidence base as the foundation for safe and effective drug laws. Through Project Twenty21, they aim to enrol 20,000 patients onto a registry which will create the largest body of evidence for the effectiveness and tolerability of medical cannabis. Patients accessing prescriptions through T21 can access prescriptions at a capped price per month.
