Check through our Patient Guides to learn more. MedBud is an independent educational platform/directory researching the emerging medical cannabis industry across the British Isles. We provide essential comparative metrics between prescription cannabis medications; clinic's prescribing; pharmacy's dispensing; and the producers/brands supplying CBPMs. We inform consent.
MedBud provides availability statuses from main distributors, when a main pharmacy or distributor runs out of stock - smaller independent pharmacies may still have medication available.
Getting started with medical cannabis in the UK or Channel Islands, is as simple as checking out our eligibility information, then applying for a consultation at any prescribing clinic.
Your choice in clinic could* affect the range of medications available to be prescribed - some clinics have default partner pharmacies, and have been known to steer patients towards prescribing products dispensed/distributed by their preferred partners. If you feel a particular product could be right for you, or would like your prescription sent to a particular pharmacy - be sure to let your doctor know during your initial consultation.
Bare in mind, each future prescription change is likely to cost (you can repeat medicines at no cost at some clinics.) Your specific prescribing clinician requires a pre-existing relationship with the pharmacy you wish to utilise in order to have a prescription written for them and directed approporiately in a timely fashion - at the current time there is no way to ascertain which doctors are able to prescribe for which pharmacies, when booking through any clinic online.
This website is intended to help you make an informed cost-effective decision on whether legal cannabis usage could be viable for you, and your healthcare. Please be aware if you choose to approach a clinic, the decision to prescribe (or not) will ultimately be made by a trained medical professional enrolled on the Specialist Register of the General Medical Council.
* There have been several instances of clinics being reluctant to prescribe various pharmacy's products, please review our clinics page for the best information made available to us so far regarding product access.
