PATIENT TESTIMONIALS

Dr Elie Okirie specialises in treating patients who live with chronic pain to improve their quality of life.

“A huge thank you for everything you’ve done for me. Having access to my medicine has made a huge improvement on my quality of life and I’ve started to develop new healthy patterns in the gaps that would usually be filled with anxiety and paranoia.” – CJM

During my training I have worked in a number of different fields that have equipped me of the challenges of modern Psychiatry. I have a particular interest and have experience in assessment and management of specialist psychiatric populations such as Substance Misuse, Perinatal substance misuse, General Adult Psychiatry: particularly Mood and Anxiety disorders and believe in understanding the person as a whole, holistic being to provide the best possible outcomes for my patients.”

We are the UK’s largest network of prescribing doctors encompassing the spectrum of conditions and symptoms which can be effectively treated by medical cannabis.

Nabilone can be prescribed by a specialist to help relieve these symptoms, but only when other treatments have not helped or are not suitable.

Currently, it is only likely to be prescribed for the following conditions:

Nabiximols (Sativex) for MS

The risks of using cannabis products containing THC (the chemical that gets you high) are not currently clear. That’s why clinical trials are needed before they can be used.

CBD is a chemical substance found in cannabis that has medical benefits.

Epidyolex can be prescribed for patients with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome (both rare forms of epilepsy).

This is not to be confused with hemp oil used in food and beauty, which is made from the seeds of the same plant.

nce a completely banned substance, cannabis has made its way into our everyday lives in the form of CBD oil – extracts taken from the plant parts of hemp that offer relief from a variety of mental and physical health problems without the hard-hitting dosage of full-blown cannabis.

Is CBD oil legal in the UK?

Love Hemp is a premium mid-strength CBG oil with an earthy flavour, rich texture and a gentle but effective result. CBG and CBD are both cannabinoids, CBG being the predecessor to CBD in terms of how the chemical breaks down when heated. Both offer similar effects according to a 2018 study.

The ideal introduction to the world of CBD, luxury wellness label CBII has crafted this dynamic duo set. It contains both a 2 per cent and 5 per cent oil, so you can sample the lesser concentration for around a week or so before moving onto the higher percentage.

The real challenge is to find a CBD oil that is as pure and potent as possible. It’s worth spending more money on a strong CBD product that you’ll only need a few drops of each day, than going for something cheap that is likely to be low quality and ineffective.
