Medisinsk cannabis er nå tilgjengelig i Norge

Kreftpasienter og andre pasienter som lever med mye smerte kan nå via spesialistlege søke om å få medisinsk cannabis på resept.

Det er hovedsaklig leger med spesialistutdannelse og som arbeider på sykehus med pasienter som ikke oppnår ønsket effekt med tidligere medisiner, som kan forskrive medisinsk cannabis. Det er kun spesialistleger som kreftleger og smerteleger som kan søke om tillatelse på vegne av sine pasienter.

– Helsedirektoratet og SLV er enige om at det er en liten gruppe vi mener kan ha nytte av medisinsk cannabis, men som ikke får det lovlig i dag. Vi har pekt på at det er mulig innenfor dagens regelverk, sier overlege Sigurd Hortemo i Statens legemiddelverk (SLV) til Dagens Medisin.

Strenge regler

Hortemo uttaler at spesialistlegene må sende to søknader for å kunne forskrive cannabis til sine pasienter; en rekvireringstillatelse til Helsedirektoratet og en søknad om godkjenningsfritak til Statens legemiddelverk. 

Det nederlandske firmaet som produserer de cannabisrelaterte legemidlene i samarbeid med det nederlandske helsedirektoratet heter «Bedrocan». Legemidlene inneholder standardiserte mengder med THC og CBD, virkestoffer i cannabis, og er ennå ikke godkjente legemidler.

– I motsetning til andre land, så har ikke vi laget en utfyllende liste over pasienter som kan ha nytte av dette. Det er først og fremst legene som må vurdere om dette er aktuell behandling for pasienten, sier Hortemo.

So many were being named that the Royal Horticultural Society began a register in 1836. In the mid-19th century some varieties were fetching £100, about 50 times the average weekly wage. They fell from the dizzy heights in the Sixties and it was the single bee and butterfly-friendly dahlias, such as 'Twyning&rsquo;s After Eight&rsquo; that revived their fortunes about 15 years ago.
