Medical cannabis is only as good as the way the plant is nurtured as it develops. Medican uses natural supplements and practices compassion when caring for cannabis to produce the healthiest plant and optimal medicine for you.

There are various methods to receiving the benefits of medical cannabis. The timing of when you administer cannabis to when it takes effect, depends on the form and the route cannabis is administered. Due to the differences in metabolic rates, onset time can vary. Consult your doctor to determine the best product for you.

Below is an example of common products used internationally, and the on-set times of the cannabis medicine.

As part of the Danish Medicinal Cannabis Pilot Program, our medicine focuses on providing comfort and pain relief for symptoms related to the following five relevant clinical indications selected by the Danish Medicines Agency:

  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Neuropathic pain
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Chemotherapy-induced nausea
  • Other pain related conditions where the doctor can argue that the product will help

Please know that the products in the test program are not considered authorized medicine in Denmark. Under the pilot program:

  • The physician can prescribe the medicinal cannabis product of their choice.
  • The physician does not have the duty to prescribe medicinal cannabis.
  • Use of medicinal cannabis can be considered once an authorized medicine has not provided the expected therapeutic results.
  • Note, the physicians are not restricted from prescribing medical cannabis to patients with other illnesses not included in the guidelines.

There are few clinical trials for medicinal cannabis, therefore, doctors must take responsibility for the product they prescribe, and determine the dose given to the individual patient. 

If you experience side effects, you may report them to:
