Hemp as an alternative medicine: from morning onwards cannabis from the doctor on prescription


As of tomorrow, doctors in Germany can prescribe cannabis flowers and extracts for many diseases on prescription, in severe cases also at the expense of health insurance companies. The German Hemp Association welcomes this development, which will be a real relief for those affected. Not only pain patients, but also many other affected patients who suffer from sleep disorders, ADHD or depression, for example, can thus receive cannabis from the pharmacy on prescription in the future.

This step marks a milestone for all concerned and the entire movement to legalize cannabis in Germany. After decades of ignorance of the suffering of patients in Germany, the government has finally come to understand. However, this does not happen out of pure humanity. The government also wanted to prevent the right to self-cultivation of patients, which was given to them by an increasing number of German courts because of their emergency situation.

Georg Wurth, Managing Director of the German Hemp Association: “The government has clearly said that the law should prevent self-cultivation by patients. It is not acceptable to us. The German Hemp Association continues to ask patients affected to grow their cannabis themselves. ”

There are many reasons for self-cultivation
“In addition to the cost savings for the health insurance companies, the huge variety of varieties of cannabis is also an issue. Some patients have positive experiences with a specific variety and want to continue using it, ”Georg Wurth continues.

Nevertheless, a new era is dawning in Germany today. In the next few years, the general picture that prevails in Germany about cannabis will very likely change massively. From the drug to the drug, from the harmful devil's stuff to the healing natural product, from the danger for young people to the blessing for the sick.

The managing director of the German Hemp Association still sees a need for clarification in society: “Especially in southern Germany, people still have to get used to experiencing cannabis users in everyday life. The police will also have to be prepared for patients to be allowed to use cannabis in public. ”
