More than 1000 people have asked Scotland’s first medical cannabis clinic for help in the three months since it opened.
Sapphire Medical Clinics, in Stirling, is the first surgery of its kind approved by regulators to offer patients safe access to medical cannabis.
It treats patients who have exhausted all other treatment options for diagnosed conditions causing chronic pain or anxiety.
Shonagh Soutar, 44, from Tayport, Fife, was one of the clinic’s first patients. She vapes cannabis-based medication three times to ease the symptoms of ME and Fibromyalgia.
“It’s instant relief for my health conditions,” said Shonagh, who’s suffered chronic pain for more than seven years.
“Cannabis is my saviour – my go to.”
