Heleen Kuijper - Tissot van Patot Since 2003, medical cannabis has been available to patients on a doctor’s prescription through pharmacies in the Netherlands. On average, about 10,000 people, with various indications use medical cannabis. It is used for symptom control such as pain and nausea/vomiting, spasms and pain in multiple sclerosis and palliative care. The medical cannabis in the Netherlands is grown according to pharmaceutical guidelines, where the end product is guaranteed to be free of heavy metals, pesticides and other contamination. The composition, as with ordinary drugs, is always the same. The cannabis from illegal (home) cultivation, for example is not.

It is important that the treatment of patients, who (may) benefit from the use of medical cannabis, takes place in a responsible manner and under medical supervision. It is time to sort out the facts and myths about medical cannabis!
