About the Cannabis-based products for medicinal use programme

Following the Government’s announcement to reschedule certain cannabis-based products for medicinal use on 1st November 2018, NHS England has developed an information package with Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare and the University of Birmingham on cannabis and cannabis based products for medicinal use which all healthcare professionals can access.

The session includes the pharmacology of cannabis, legislation governing medical use and therapeutic areas and evidence for its use. This module will be updated as more information becomes available.
