What areas of use has medicinal cannabis been shown to be effective in?
Medical research into the use of cannabis is currently limited, but more and more studies are now being performed on the use of medicinal cannabis to treat a variety of conditions.
How can I find a doctor to prescribe medicinal cannabis for my condition?
You should consult your specialist or GP about medicinal cannabis – depending on the state or country you live in, you may need a referral to a specialist to obtain a prescription.
