The cultivation, manufacture and sale of cannabis for medicinal purposes in Portugal may only be done following authorisation on the part of the country’s pharmaceutical authority, Infarmed.

New legislation published today also stipulates that cannabis products may only be sold on medical prescription, which may only be given if conventional medicine fails to have the desired effects. The regulation also clarifies that no one may cultivate and manufacture cannabis-based products for their own individual therapeutic purposes.
