Karsons Pharmacy awarded cannabis licence

Thu, 23 Jun 2022

A pharmacy on the Isle of Man has been awarded a licence for the importation and dispensing of cannabis based products for medicinal use.

Island residents with private prescriptions for medicinal cannabis products will be able to have their prescriptions fulfilled locally for the first time at Karsons Pharmacy.

Karsons is a local, family-run pharmacy, operating in Onchan and Kirk Michael. Originally established in 1985, the pharmacy in Onchan will be the only on-Island pharmacy with a licence to import and dispense CBPMs.

Minister for Health and Social Care, Lawrie Hooper MHK, said: ‘This licence is the first of its kind on the Island, and is a step in the right direction for providing access to a safe, legal and robust dispensing service for residents with private prescriptions. The Department will be working closely with Karsons over the course of this pilot to ensure we are providing the right service in the right way.’
