Introducing the Chelsea Cannabis Clinic

Chelsea Pharmacy Medical Clinic is delighted to introduce the Chelsea Cannabis Clinic. 

We are dedicated to providing patients with access to prescribed Medical Cannabis in the areas of chronic pain and psychiatry. 

Chelsea Cannabis Clinic is the only clinic in Chelsea to be introducing this highly sought after specialised medical service. CCC will be prescribing for pain, neurological and psychiatric disorders. 

Medical Cannabis is an individualised therapy, it is available for patients who have tried and failed previous treatment conditions. 

Medical Cannabis is derived from the cannabis plant and at Chelsea Cannabis Clinic we use full-spectrum extracts, available as oils and flowers. This differs from CBD which is available over the counter, which is regulated as a food supplement and not as medicine. The two main phytocannabinoids we often refer to are CBD and THC. Medical Cannabis contains CBD and THC in varying ratios, your doctor will decide which ratio is best for you depending on your presenting condition, individual symptoms and medical history. 

There is a range of Medical Cannabis products available in the UK, here at Chelsea Pharmacy Medical Clinic we exclusively prescribe Althea medical cannabis products. We have both Medical Cannabis oils and Medical Cannabis dried flowers available. 

Oils are taken orally via an oral syringe, your doctor will decide about your dose according to your individual symptoms and condition. Medical Cannabis flowers may be suitable for symptoms which have a quicker onset, for example: breakthrough pain. Medical Cannabis flower is only prescribed for vaping, through an MHRA approved vape machine.
