Hospital To Distribute First Batch Of Pot Oil Soon
Chaophraya Abhaibhubejhr Hospital in Prachin Buri province. Expects to distribute its first batch of 10,000 bottles of marijuana oil extract to hospitals nationwide starting next month.
Supaporn Pitiporn, the hospital’s senior pharmacist who is in charge of its cannabis drug development project, said on Wednesday. The hospital knows supply is insufficient to serve the high demand among patients despite efforts to boost production. Supply chain problems have curbed production, he said.
Under these tough circumstances, Ms. Supaporn said the hospital wants to help patients gain access to cannabis-based medical treatment, saying it plans to distribute the first batch of 10,000 bottles (5cc each) with 1.7% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content to hospitals across the country on Aug 23.
