healthcare professionals

We aim to provide all the educational materials about cannabis you need – from how quality is maintained in production, to how your patients may benefit. To do so, we work closely with Sapphire Medical, a company formed by doctors for the mutual benefit of patients and healthcare professionals.

Real world evidence

of medical cannabis

The future of cannabis is centred on personalised medicine, which requires a data-driven, real world approach to clinical decision making. Sapphire Medical is collecting real world evidence in a National Registry to bridge the gaps in medical knowledge to provide a comprehensive insight into the therapeutic benefits and applications of medical cannabis.

This free National Registry has been seamlessly integrated into the patient pathway and is capturing key data including efficacy, safety and patient-reported outcomes.
