Medical cannabis

Changes as of 1.8.2022

The facilitations for medical hemp have finally come into force and a new era has begun. Doctors can now prescribe hemp containing THC without having to apply for an exemption permit.

This amendment to the Narcotics Act, which has now come into force, allows cannabis medicines to be prescribed by doctors without an exemption permit from the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH).

The seven-year phase in which these new possibilities are being explored and evaluated is currently underway. However, as long as health insurance companies do not pay for such cannabis medicines (this will continue to be discussed over the next few years), only a few patients will be able to afford these preparations.
