Medical cannabis is fast becoming a frequently asked about topic between patients and GPs in the UK, as demonstrated by the Primary Care Cannabis Network’s 2021 Survey which spoke to over 1000 GPs about their attitudes towards cannabis-based medicines: the survey found that more than two-thirds of GPs in the UK are asked about medical cannabis by their patients at least every six months. Pressure is mounting for the government to review its policy to allow GPs to prescribe freely in the UK, as is currently possible in Jersey and Guernsey. With that in mind, it has never been more crucial for UK GPs to be armed with the information and ready to prescribe, anticipating what many feel is an inevitable change in legislation.
