About the Clinic

Alternaleaf is one of the largest private cannabis clinics, servicing patients UK-wide. The expansive team of experienced healthcare professionals working with Alternaleaf offer patients in-depth knowledge and understanding of medical cannabis’s therapeutic benefits and a compassionate, patient, and understanding approach. They work closely with patients to ensure that the treatment options offered are customised to their unique health needs. Their approach to patient care is centred around a holistic view of health, recognising the interconnectedness of physical and mental well-being.

The team works collaboratively to address all aspects of health and well-being, offering patients suffering from a wide range of conditions the best possible care. With regular follow-ups, transparent and affordable pricing, and a commitment to evidence-based medicine, Alternaleaf strives to provide patients with the highest quality of care.

Alternaleaf is committed to serving those who have served our country. By partnering with veterans’ charities Blue Light and Defence Discount Card, they offer discounted treatment options for UK military veterans, and their families.

I have been blown away by the care I have received from the Alternaleaf clinic and the results the medication has provided. Ive never been one to take a lot of pills and medication, and hadn’t even smoke marijuana before i signed up. I was very skeptical to say the least, but the difference the oil has made to my life is nothing shirt of amazing. I can walk pain free ost days now for at least a few hours, which is something i never thought i would be able to do again.
