illicit cannabis

A study of illicit cannabis use for medical reasons by the Centre for Medicinal Cannabis in 2019, suggested that an estimated 182,583 individuals in the UK self-medicate with illicit cannabis for insomnia. Despite this, there is a paucity of high-quality data in humans to determine its effectiveness and as such it is an unlicensed medication at present. Individuals with insomnia who have failed to get sufficient relief from licensed therapies can, however, be considered for the prescription of medical cannabis by specialist consultants through clinics, such as Sapphire Medical Clinics, if they meet appropriate criteria.
