UK Medical Cannabis Strains

Medical cannabis has been available on prescription in the UK since November 2018. Whilst prescribing on the NHS is rare (only a handful of prescriptions to date), medical cannabis is prescribed for a wide range of conditions by UK cannabis clinics. Patients typically must obtain their summary care record from their GP, and medical cannabis is considered once at least two treatments have been attempted for a condition.

Browse by Effects

Cannabis can have different effects on people, making them feel in all sorts of ways. Some folks feel happy and euphoric when they use cannabis. It's like a wave of joy washes over them, and they can't help but smile. Others find that cannabis makes them super relaxed. All the tension drains from them, and they can chill.

Some people notice that time seems to move differently when they're using cannabis. Minutes can feel like hours, and time seems to stretch out. Others find that their senses are sharper and more alive. Food tastes better, music sounds amazing, and even colours can seem brighter.

Cannabis can also make people giggle a lot or become really chatty. You might find yourself cracking up at the smallest things or chatting non-stop about everything and anything. And of course, there's the munchies. Some people get a real appetite boost and just can't stop snacking.

These are just some of the effects people have reported. For a full list, you can see our Strains By Effect page or click on an icon below to see all the strains reported to cause that feeling. Whether you're after a particular effect or just curious to see what's out there, this is a great way to find the right strain for you.

Zkittles

The ZKittlez weed strain is just as enticing as it sounds, and the flavour has been bred into many crosses since it hit the market. A terp heavy body-led hit that pleases even the most seasoned smoker.

Marmalade

The Marmalade weed strain is well-suited for an evening session. Its heavy-hitting effects can be felt even after a hard day of sessioning. A wash of euphoria at the back of the mind, transitioning into a happy tingle.

ZCube

The ZCube weed strain delivers strong sedative effects. The high starts with uplifting sensations, which lead to a sense of tingly happiness throughout the body, drastically heightening users’ moods.

Browse by Flavour

Cannabis strains come in many different flavours, all thanks to the natural compounds - terpenoids and flavonoids - found in the plant's flowers. These flavours make up a lot of what makes each strain unique and different from one another.

You've got strains that taste and smell like pine, giving you that fresh forest vibe. Some strains might hit you with a bright and zesty citrus kick. You've got others with a clean and cool minty taste or the sweet tang of berries and tropical fruits. Some strains even have a soothing floral touch of lavender or a rich, earthy aroma that's grounding.

There are some powerful strains with a bold diesel scent, matched with fiery spicy or strong herbal smells. If you like something more edgy, try strains that have a peppery, musky or skunky kick. If you fancy something sweeter, there are strains with a sweet, woody, cheesy, grapey, rosy, mango-like or lemony taste.

The choice is yours! Simply click on the icons below for the flavour you're interested in, or click here for a full list. Each one will take you to a list of strains that carry that particular taste or smell. Whether you're looking for something familiar or new, this is your chance to explore the exciting world of cannabis flavours.
