Key Projects

Code of Practice

The Code of Practice is a proactive demonstration that UK medical cannabis clinics are compliant with the highest medical standards and prioritise patient health and wellbeing.

Data Standardisation

A pioneering real-world data collection project to establish standardised data collection procedures among clinicians prescribing Cannabis-based Products for Medicinal use (CBPMs).

Condition Focus

Our information for healthcare professionals provides an objective and comprehensive overview of CBPMs and their applications for a range of medical conditions.

Regulatory Review

Clarifying the definition of a CBPM is essential to developing a medical supply chain, running clinical trials and enabling NHS prescriptions. Our framework will chart the best route to reform.

Patient Survey

Our annual patient survey is run in conjunction with the UK’s leading CBPM prescribing clinics. It gives insight into patient behaviour and the perceived efficacy of the CBPMs they receive.

Industry Events

Our event calendar includes the Annual UK Medicinal Cannabis Summit, an Annual Clinics Conference, a Spring Industry Convention and our annual MCA Members General Assembly.
