Medical cannabis is indicated in chronic illnesses where pharmaceutical medication was not effective to relieve symptoms or has caused unwanted side effects. There is substantial evidence that medical cannabis is a safe and effective treatment for patients with chronic pain, chemotherapy-induced side effects and spasticity from multiple sclerosis.

From The Pain Clinic’s case studies, we have observed that medical cannabis can help ease symptoms in many chronic medical conditions where patients did not respond sufficiently to conventional medication, suggesting that the endocannabinoid system may be involved in the pathology of chronic illnesses.

If you have a patient that you would like to refer to The Pain Clinic, kindly complete the attached form and send it to us by email. Alternatively, kindly fill in this online questionnaire in the patient’s presence and provide your name and email address so that we can update you with a medical report after we see the patient.

Kindly note that for patients to be eligible for medical cannabis, they need to suffer from a chronic medical condition for which they have used at least one medication and this was not effective or caused side effects. Patients who attended detox in the past or have pending court cases are not eligible to apply. Patients with psychotic illnesses need an approval from their psychiatrist. Medical cannabis comes in the form of dried flower which is inhaled through a herb vaporizer or as oil which is ingested by mouth. 

Feel free to get in touch should you have any queries before referring a patient. Thank you!
