Licensed medicines are pharmaceutical products that have been approved and granted licences by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA)
Medicines can be granted licences after being thoroughly investigated and proven to be effective and safe during clinical trials. The licensing process is done by the MHRA and the EMA, and once approved these medications can be made available for wider use. In the UK, Nabilone, Sativex and Epidyolex are licensed cannabis-based medicines.
