Dual licence issued to medicinal cannabis firm

Tuesday 21 December 2021


The first company to obtain a licence for both medicinal cannabis cultivation and prescription is planning to offer online consultations and next day delivery for patients across the Channel Islands and UK.

4C LABS is the first company to obtain both licences, which will allow doctors to prescribe their products online. It says the medicinal cannabis market is growing in Guernsey and its new move will help meet customers' needs.

The National Specialist Medical Clinic Licence was granted last week and will allow the firm to establish 4C LABS Health Clinics. The plan is to operate them by July next year.

They will offer both online consultations with doctors and next day delivery for prescriptions as well as educational content on health and wellness and referrals to physiotherapists, counsellors, psychologists, dieticians and other health care professionals.

Greg Dobbin, Chief Executive of 4C LABS, said: “We are extremely excited to have successfully registered our virtual clinic. This is a major step forward for patients who are eligible for medical cannabis as well as those who are looking for an integrated approach to treatment that considers all aspects of wellbeing.

"We have worked extremely hard to build and integrate an IT platform into our business that ensures we meet the health needs of our patients. We are developing a leading digital platform enabling automated scheduling, one click records retrieval and digital prescriptions to significantly streamline the process. To make the process easy for patients, we have simplified the patient pathway to dramatically reduce the time between consultation and prescription delivery.”
