Specialists in Guernsey will have the ability to prescribe natural cannabis for medicinal use as a part of a regulation replace which has been permitted by the States.
Though the drug is simply more likely to be prescribed in a really small variety of instances, the Committee for Well being and Social care believes it is a important step in modernising the island’s cannabis legal guidelines.
The drug will likely be produced in specialist amenities and could be prescribed by a advisor in the event that they assume it’s applicable for his or her affected person.

“We’re happy to see this variation in regulation come into impact,” stated HSC President Deputy Heidi Soulsby. “It builds on the modifications already made by the Committee for Well being and Social Care with regard to different cannabis-based merchandise, equivalent to CBD merchandise, which was one thing many in our group had campaigned for and has led to an rising new trade domestically.”
