Cannabis Clinic Cardiff is focused on treating patients with mental health conditions.

Wales’ first medical cannabis clinic has opened in Cardiff and is now welcoming patients through Project Twenty21.

Cannabis Clinic Cardiff, the first medicinal cannabis clinic in Wales, is now providing private healthcare for those with mental health conditions, who believe they may benefit from a medical cannabis prescription. 

The clinic, which is the latest to join Project Twenty21, offers assessments either virtually or face-to-face, at its Dartington Drive facility, for those who have found their symptoms to be inadequately managed with conventional approaches.

Consultant psychiatrist, Dr Dave Howells, is a specialist in mental health in older people, while his colleague Dr Matthew D Hoskins specialises in adult mental health and traumatic stress.

Prescribing indications include anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), substance use disorder and attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD). However, patients are welcome to contact the clinic to discuss eligibility for other mental health concerns.

According to the Project Twenty21 website, the clinic stated: “The team at Cannabis Clinic Cardiff are dedicated to supporting people on their health journey and recognise the benefits some patients can have from complementary therapies. Our approach is both patient-centric and clinician-led, collaborating with you to devise a personalised healthcare plan.

“As experienced specialists in mental health, the consultant psychiatrists at Cannabis Clinic Cardiff are able to evaluate your needs and establish if you might be suitable for a trial of CDMPs.”

Patients can self-refer to access a free eligibility assessment, or through a referral from their mental health specialist.

An initial appointment, either face to face or virtually, with a Specialist Consultant will follow, to assess symptoms, medical history and determine your suitability for a trial of a cannabis-based medicine.
