What is Medical Cannabis?

Medical cannabis, or medical marijuana, is a plant-based medicine from the Cannabis sativa or Cannabis indica species with three major active compounds: THC, CBD, and CBN.

Medical Cannabis Laws in Different Countries

While the benefits of medical cannabis are being recognized, its legality varies. In Canada, for instance, medical cannabis is legal nationwide. It's regulated by the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations.

In the United Kingdom, medical cannabis was made legal in November 2018; however, access remains highly limited.

In contrast, in Australia, the legislation is dependent on each state. Some states allow treatment for specific conditions whereas others require a prescribed medical professional's approval.

Variations Across U.S. States

In the United States, the legality of medical cannabis varies by state. States like California, Colorado, and Oregon have much more lenient laws in terms of possession and cultivation compared to states like Alabama or Idaho where the use of medical cannabis remains unlawful.


Despite the disparate laws, medical cannabis is making strides in being recognized for its potential health benefits. As more research evolves, altering the legal status seems inevitable.
