MAIN CONDITIONS TREATED BY PHARMACEUTICAL OR MEDICAL CANNABIS

In Germany, cannabis has been used for many symptoms. However, the only on-label use of cannabis is for multiple sclerosis, and the law does not state clearly what conditions cannabis can be prescribed for. Patients suffering from any condition must prove the condition has so far been unsuccessfully treated with another type of drug. The physician decides, in consultation with the patient, whether to use cannabis or not. This is the case only if the doctor can produce supporting evidence of an effect of medical cannabis on the condition. Therefore, no disease is explicitly excluded. Physicians who prescribe cannabis collect and share data on patients and diagnoses with the BfArM (after one year of therapy or if therapy is discontinued). The following table lists the main conditions that have been treated with medicinal cannabis products, according to the data collected.

Despite the fact that MS is the only condition for on-label use of medical cannabis in Germany, treatment for spasticity (caused by MS) represents fewer than one in ten cases submitted to the BfArM. Symptoms rather than diseases make up the lion’s share of medicinal cannabis patients in the country with the use of cannabis to treat pain accounting for almost seven in ten (69%) users, and nausea accounting for 4% of users. 

Eating disorders, such as anorexia, represent a distant third place, accounting for some 8% of cases submitted to the BfArM. Other less widespread uses of medical cannabis include Tourette’s syndrome, ulcerative colitis, ADHD and epilepsy.
