The medical cannabis market in Cyprus
The Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (Pharmaceutical Cannabis) Regulations were approved in Cyprus on 6 March 2019 but have not yet been implemented. Since 2016, and in accordance with the current legislation, the government of Cyprus has permitted the use of cannabis for medical purposes and has allowed patients to purchase medical cannabis products directly from pharmacies, subject to the presentation of a doctor's prescription, following an approval by the Minister of Health. The main indication for which medicinal cannabis is prescribed in Cyprus is terminal cancer.
