Date lodged: 11 January 2019

To ask the Scottish Government whether it will list the medical cannabis products that are available for prescribing.

Answered by: Jeane Freeman 22 January 2019

As explained within the supplementary information issued on 21 November 2018 ( https://www.sehd.scot.nhs.uk/cmo/CMO(2018)16.pdf ) there is no list of approved products or suppliers. These are unlicensed special medicines and only a supplier that has the appropriate Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) and Home Office (HO) licences, and meets the conditions set out in MHRA guidance, can supply cannabis based products for medicinal use.
