Cancard is a card issued by Cancard Ltd to its membership which is evidence that a cardholder has a qualifying condition for which medical cannabis may be prescribed. Cancard is an indication to law enforcement and the general public that a person possessing cannabis is doing so for medicinal reasons. Police forces in the UK have been briefed on Cancard by the National Police Chiefs counsel that police officers should feel confident in using their discretion when they encounter a Cancard holder in possession of small quantities of cannabis for medicinal purposes.

Please check if you have an eligible condition from our list:
We all know that cases where patients have proved legitimate medicinal use are unlikely to make it to court, and if they do, these cases are consistently dropped. This is most notably true whereby a patient presents at court with a condition and is in receipt of a private prescription. There is currently no way of identifying these people before emotional distress has been caused and public resources have been wasted. This is an opportunity to create a benchmark for change. Together we can unofficially decriminalise, for those most vulnerable, as we greatly reduce the possibility of a obtaining a conviction.
