Over the past few years, medicinal cannabis has become an increasingly popular option for patients seeking relief from their ailments in the UK. Many have turned to cannabis to relieve chronic pain, manage their mental health, or find a more natural way to alleviate the symptoms of a whole host of medical conditions.

At Elios clinics, we are devoted to helping our patients find the best solution to suit their needs, so here we present the top five reasons why medicinal cannabis might be the right option for you.

1. New and powerful treatment

Medicinal cannabis can offer a new and powerful treatment for a wide range of conditions. Whether it’s severe inflammation, chronic pain, PTSD, sleep problems, or any other health issue, cannabis products can offer quick relief and frequently have fewer adverse effects compared to traditional medications.

The exact effects depend on the cannabinoid and terpene profile of the particular product being used, the delivery method, and the patient’s individual biology. However, whatever your particular needs may be, our team is more than ready to help you identify the right solution if you fill in our new patient form or contact us.

2. Low levels of intoxication

Unlike recreational cannabis, medicinal cannabis contains low levels of the psychoactive ingredient THC, making it much less likely to cause any intoxicating or disorienting effects. This means you can reap the benefits of cannabinoids when medicinal cannabis is used at the right dosage and in the proper way without feeling “high”.

On top of this, many non-intoxicating CBD-only products are increasingly and consistently being used for conditions that don’t necessarily require psychoactive effects.

3. Wide variety of products

One of the great things about medicinal cannabis is the diversity of products available to suit any individual’s needs. We offer everything from simple oils and tinctures to more complex edibles and topicals. Finding the best option for your particular needs is made simple thanks to this, whether it’s quick-acting sublingual for patients with chronic pain or edibles for those seeking a more sustained relief and longer-lasting comfort.

4. Easily accessible

Another massive advantage of medicinal cannabis is that it is relatively easy to obtain. Rather than going through a complex application process or waiting weeks for access, many patients in the UK can now get their medicine quickly and conveniently.

Our clinic offers a simple online system that you can utilize to quickly get approval for a medicinal cannabis prescription in just a few days.

5. Cost-effective

Compared to traditional prescription medications, medicinal cannabis can be a much more cost-effective option for many patients. Depending on your individual needs and the product chosen, it can end up being substantially cheaper than the equivalent pharmaceuticals. Sometimes, it’s as much as 50-75% cheaper.

But of course, the cost will vary depending on your particular situation, but if you find that cannabis is the right choice for you, then it’s definitely worth researching the costs involved.


Whatever your reason for considering medicinal cannabis, our team at the clinic is here to help you make the right choice for your needs. From identifying the ideal product for you and ensuring that you have all the necessary knowledge you need to make an informed choice, we are here to support you every step of the way. So get in touch with us today, and let us help you discover the benefits of medicinal cannabis.
