From today medicinal cannabis is available, legally, on prescription from the NHS. On the proviso that it is prescribed by a consultant.

Does anyone know if this treatment is currently under review in Cyprus?
Is there any liklihood that it will become legal here in the near future?

Found these in the archive:

This from 2017 suggests it is now legal:

Cyprus begins to distribute medical cannabis

Though this from a few days ago confuses things:

MPs concerned about how medical cannabis will be policed

Cheers

The whole thing is a bit of a muddle in both countries .
I believe the original law here has been passed but not ratified ( that's what is going on now)
Whilst in the UK earlier this year , I was buying cannabis oil in Holland and Barret and yet their branches here are not allowed to carry it .

what holland & barrett sell is CBD oil. it is legal with under 0.02% THC. told can same here in health stores & vape shops sell the CBD vape

If cyprus legalises under same rules as UK then very few people will benefit. only i think 3 conditions that it can be prescribed for by a specialist consultant. these are some forms of chlldhood epilepsy, side effects of chemo & MS

Wonder why H&B don't stock it here ? Can't even get it from them or any other company on the net , all say can not deliver to Cyprus
I contacted H&B and they told me it is illegal here and it would be impounded .
Can you tell me which shops sell it here please. Not the vape thanks, I don't trust Vape from anywhere other than Justfog here and they don't sell it either

I haven't bought it here. assume most will have lab reports but i dont really understand them. so prefer to stick to what i know You can get it from a few companys in UK online & delivered here. The first i used was CBD brothers, other is Cheds. a month ago i bought from Bud Utopia who are in spain. got my order in less than a week. if you look on Bud Utopia you will be shocked at the price. very expensive but stronger so dont use much. once you have received your first order you can join their face book group Bud Utopia members. they have lots of offers & i got paste on buy 1 get 1 free. If you order & get to checkout dont be put off by payment methods. says bank transfer or bitcoins. But if you email or message them they will send you details of another way to pay.

If you dont mind saying what you want the CBD to treat i might be able to say which of the CBD brothers or Bud Utopia are suitable. I use it for hip arthritis as trying to delay a replacement op. so use 1 type in day for pain & another in evening for pain & sleep. some types give you energy some have calming effect

Are you talking about creams and ointments , or the types you ingest. The creams you can buy at most pharmacies and order on line

Talking about the ones you take orally under your tongue. Either oils or paste
Have got some CBD balm but think that can work well on smaller areas & knees. But not a lot of good on hip. As big area
