New varieties of medical marijuana in Polish pharmacies

It has been known for a long time that the availability of medical marijuana in Polish pharmacies is at an extremely poor level. Drug deliveries are still not timely, and batches delivered to pharmacies are spreading so quickly that most patients have to hunt for products by going to pharmacies several dozen kilometers away from their place of residence. The problem with availability is one thing, but another limitation faced by medical marijuana patients in Poland is the small amount of the drug allowed on the Polish market. At the moment, there are only a few types of marijuana varieties with certain percentages of THC or CBD. By comparison, in Germany patients have access to over 50 varieties of medical marijuana.

Medical marijuana with a very high THC content

At the moment (01.04.2022), Polish pharmacies mainly offer varieties of medical marijuana with a very high content of psychoactive THC. These include the following drugs:

  • Cannabis Sativa L., Red No. 2 (Spectrum Cannabis) THC 19% (+/- 10%), CBD no more than 1%
  • Cannabis Flos THC 20% CBD 1% (Aurora) used, among others in drug-resistant epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, chronic pain and alleviating the burdensome side effects of chemotherapy.
  • Cannabis Flos THC 22% CBD 1% (Aurora)  used as above
  • "Sativex" i.e. an oral spray with medical cannabis extracts. It is indicated, e.g. for the relief of moderate to severe spasticity in adult patients with multiple sclerosis who have not responded to standard therapy. THC content 27 mg/ml and CBD 25 mg/ml.

As you can see, the smallest percentage of tetrahydrocannabinol in most available drugs is around 19%. This is a very large amount, especially for people who do not tolerate the psychoactive effects of medical marijuana. Many patients need significantly less psychoactive medical cannabis flowers. Fortunately, such varieties have been available for about 2 weeks, and more products with a lower THC content are to be available in pharmacies any moment.

Cannabis extractum normatum THC 10% CBD<1% Vetos Farma

From the information from March 24.03.2022, XNUMX available on the "gdziepolek" website, we learn that:

"According to the information from the manufacturer, the first batch of raw material (Cannabis extractum normatum THC 10% CBD<1% Vetos Farma) is to be delivered to the Modumpharma warehouse in April this year. Already now, pharmacies can send requests for this product to the sales department of the Modumpharma warehouse.”

Cannabis extractum normatum THC 10% CBD<1% Vetos Farma is hemp extract (medical marijuana) with an advantage indica. This variety shows, among others: analgesic, antiemetic, anticonvulsant and antispasmodic effects. Prescription drugs with hemp extract are used in the treatment of paineuropathic diseases, in alleviating nausea and vomiting caused by some drugs, in spastic states in the course of multiple sclerosis, in the treatment of epileptic seizures, and also as an adjunct in the treatment of anxiety and depression.

Cannabis Flos THC 8% CBD 8% (Aurora)

Another variety that has been slowly appearing in pharmacies since March 16.03 is Cannabis Flos THC 8% CBD 8% (Aurora). At the moment, this variety can be found in only 8% of pharmacies in Poland. Apparently, this variety is to be permanently on sale. The only question is what does it mean permanently and, above all, in what quantities?

The new variety of Aurora 8/8, in addition to the indicated percentage of THC and CBD cannabinoids, is to be characterized by the content of dominant terpenes:

  • β– Myrcene with relaxing, analgesic and sedative properties. This terpene works against inflammation, insomnia, cramps and pain.
  • α-Pinene with a sedative, immunosuppressive and analgesic effect. Works best for: itching, insomnia, wound healing.

The balanced content of THC and CBD is supposed to bring relief to patients mainly in pain and inflammation.

New varieties of medical marijuana with low THC content - soon in Polish pharmacies

We also found out that in April, products from Spectrum Therapeutics will be available in pharmacies. They are to be:

  • Cannabis flos, Canopy Growth THC 8%, CBD 7%, Hybrid - A hybrid with a lower THC and CBD content in the ratio of approx. 1:1;
  • Cannabis flos, Canopy Growth THC 20%, CBD ≤ 0,5%, Indica, which in its cannabinoid composition resembles the medical varieties already available in pharmacies.

 Drugs from the company Spectrum Therapeutics has already visited the shelves of Polish pharmacies, but the previous variety of Cannabis Flos THC 10%, CBD 7% (Canopy Growth) has been suspended. In June last year, there were shortages of goods at the manufacturer itself, which suspended deliveries. The question is what will happen with new varieties from the same company?

 

The fight for medical marijuana

Following the struggles of sick people, MM patients, unfortunately, we see their enormous effort, which they have to struggle with in the fight for health. And it's not about the problem of obtaining a prescription for medical marijuana, but unfortunately about the problem of buying a drug prescribed by a doctor. Certainly, the new law from the beginning of February, which is to enable the production of medical marijuana in Poland, will have a positive impact on the availability and price of MM. However, it is not known when this will actually happen. However, we are pleased that less psychoactive varieties have appeared in pharmacies. We are also glad that more and more people understand what hemp is, especially the so-called hemp. medical. Certainly, we still need a few years to fully realize the society, but the recent decisions, both in the world and in Poland, show that everything is going in the right direction!

On these socially beneficial decisions:

On January 27, 2022, the Minister of Health, Adam Niedzielski, removed from the list of narcotic substances of group IV-N herb and hemp resin other than fibrous. They have been added to the list of narcotic drugs in the IN group. IN group agents may only be used for medical, industrial or research purposes. The above changes apply from February 19.02.2022, XNUMX.

So far, we have had some inaccuracy, because according to the provisions of the Act, agents from group IV-N can only be used in animal medicine and for the purpose of conducting research, and at the same time there is an objection, which states that the same hemp herb other than fibrous can be a pharmaceutical raw material , admitted to trading in the territory of the Republic of Poland.

Combining dried CBD with medical marijuana

As mentioned, Polish pharmacies have so far lacked medical marijuana with a lower content of psychoactive THC. One of the methods used by MM patients was to combine legal, non-prescription, dried hemp with CBD with dried cannabis (prescription medical marijuana). The combination of dried CBD with MM helps to neutralize the psychoactive effect. However, all such decisions should be made in consultation with the medical marijuana practitioner.
