Phra Nangklao Hospital opens first medical cannabis clinic




The Phra Nangklao Hospital, which is under the supervision of the Ministry of Public Health, opened its first medical cannabis clinic yesterday.


Dr. Praphon Tangsrikiattikul, an advisor to the public health minister, said today that the Public Health Ministry has been trying to legalize medicinal cannabis to offer an alternative treatment under the supervision of trained medical practitioners.


The clinic will be staffed by six doctors, one dentist, five pharmacists and four nurses, all of whom have completed a training course.  The clinic will provide modern medical treatment, in parallel with traditional medical treatment, to patients suffering nine specific diseases, including stroke, coronary disease, nausea following chemo therapy, muscle weakening, muscle numbness, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and insomnia.


The clinic is open Mondays from 1 pm to 4.30 pm. Phra Nangklao Hospital treats about 890 patients in the last stages of cancer, stroke and ALS.

About time we had a cannabis clinic in Bangkok. They treat insomnia but not chronic pain?

It is actually in Nonthaburi, looks like about 500 m from the purple MRT station, right before it crosses the river.

And so here is another possibility for hospitals, already very rich in making even more money ....
Many of those in need of this natural medicine will never be able to pay it because it already costs more than Marjuana!
