Test your knowledge of medical cannabis with The Medical Cannabis Clinics quiz and win a £100 Amazon voucher.
To mark Medical Cannabis Awareness Week (MCAW2021), The Medical Cannabis Clinics has designed a quiz to test how much you really know. The competition will run from now until the end of the year.
You can find the quiz here
Medical Cannabis Awareness Week marks three years since the change in the law allowing cannabis-based medicines to be prescribed. Despite this, only three prescriptions have been issued during this time. #MCAW2021 helps to highlight the experiences of patients and their frustration at the current system. It also calls for real-world evidence in evolving access to these treatments.
The Medical Cannabis Clinics is the UK’s top online cannabis clinic applying cannabis-based therapy and treatment for patients suffering from chronic pain, neurological, psychiatric and other conditions.
They offer innovative cannabis-based therapy and prescription of cannabis-based medicines to patients.
Speaking with Cannabis Health News, Tuanne Mac, Head of Marketing, at The Medical Cannabis Clinics said:
“We’re keen to educate patients as much as possible and inform them of their full options when considering treatment.
A lot of people are still not aware that medical cannabis was legalised in 2018. Others are not aware that it could be a viable option and are taking the first steps to educate themselves.
We set up the quiz as an engaging way to test people’s knowledge and encourage them to learn more, both through our website and the learning material available at The Academy of Medical Cannabis.
We’re also inviting people to tell us what they think of the current industry. Getting closer to our patients and the general public is imperative to us in order to drive a collective awareness.”
If you think you know your CBD from your THC then why not give it a try?

How cannabis can offer an alternative for menopause symptoms
Experts at Integro Clinics explore how cannabis medicines can offer an effective alternative to HRT
Experts at Integro Clinics explore how cannabis medicines can offer an effective alternative to HRT treatment for menopause symptom control.
It is now widely accepted that Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) can be very useful in treating menopause symptoms. However, it is not suitable for all women – some who may not feel comfortable using it or have a medical contraindication such as a family history of cancer.
There is an alternative out there that can be used in conjunction with HRT treatment, to complement it, or used entirely on its own – cannabis medicines.
At Integro Clinics our female pain expert, Dr Sally Ghazaleh and Neuropsychiatrist, Dr Mayur Bodani have seen encouraging results from patients using medical cannabis in the form of an ingestible oil (CBD mixed with THC) and by vaping prescribed cannabis flower.
The specific symptom cannabis-based medicines (CBM’s) can address in menopause include insomnia, anxiety, depression, headaches, low libido, and brain fog. If you have profoundly disturbed sleep, it can have a massive impact on your quality of life, mental well-being & ability to cope.
At Integro Clinics we have witnessed that once the patient achieves a better and more consistent regular quality of sleep, with the help of CBM’s, everything starts to pick up. Anxiety can decrease, the desire to take physical exercise and mental clarity are increased, which can lead to a lift in depression and a more positive mindset.
If you are interested in finding out in more detail how CBM’s can help you with your menopause symptoms, do not miss the opportunity to register for free for a webinar on Tuesday 30 November. Hosted by Integro Clinics, Cannabis Health and Cannabis Patient Advocacy and Support Services (CPASS), it will look to break down the stigma that women face when it comes to menopause and medical cannabis.

Dr Ghazaleh specialises in managing patients with lower back pain, neck pain, neuropathic pain, abdominal pain, cancer pain, complex regional pain syndrome, post-stroke pain and fibromyalgia. She has a particular interest in bladder and abdominal pain in women, and women’s health in general & menopause. She is fluent in Arabic, English and Hungarian.
Dr Mayur Bodani, a neuropsychiatrist at Integro Clinics qualified in both General Medicine (to hospital medicine standard) and neuropsychiatry. He has over 25 years of experience in the field and prescribes cannabis medicines at Integro Clinics for mental health-related conditions.
Gone are the days where women are just supposed to put up and get on with it – there are new medicines out there such as medical cannabis, that can address and help menopause symptoms.
