Medisonal and PCCA announce exclusive partnership
Medisonal and PCCA have formed an exclusive partnership to improve patient services and access to medical cannabis across the UK. PCCA is a world leader in supporting the creation of personalised medicines and innovative products that make a difference in patients’ lives. Medisonal’s partnership with PCCA Limited gives it a unique edge in the evolving medical cannabis market.
The first truly independent platform in the UK for medical cannabis, Medisonal seeks to work with existing players in the UK market in order to ensure the best cannabis-based medicinal products are available to patients at reasonable prices and with an uninterrupted continuity of supply.
Medisonal’s goal is to help the doctors and patients orient themselves across the whole market without being tied to any manufacturer. Its platform has a unique offering of expert scientists, technologists, pharmacists and business developers to improve the amount of quality information available about medical cannabis generally available for doctors, hospitals, patients and regulators–with the overall aim of creating greater transparency throughout the market.
Using economies of scale to achieve better pricing for patients, Medisonal appeals to prescribing doctors through its streamlined prescription process. It provides free education to UK doctors and allows them to purchase in one place all medical cannabis products which are legally sold in the UK.
This new partnership with PCCA allows Medisonal to leverage PCCA’s high-quality import infrastructure and licenses (including MHRA Specials Manufacturing, Home Office Controlled Drugs Schedule 2 and GPhC Registered Pharmacy).
With support from PCCA, Medisonal has concurrently launched its research and development arm through Liberum Health focusing on the delivery of medicines to women, an area which has been historically underfunded. (www.liberumhealth.com).
Hana Salussolia, CEO of Medisonal

Carl Woolf, Pharmaceutical Director-Medisonal/Dispensing Chemist–Centennial Pharma Services Limited
“This is an incredible step forwards in establishing Medisonal as major force in medical cannabis supply. To be partnered with such a professional and established company as PCCA will ensure seamless supply and distribution–an area that has often been unreliable. Working together as one of the first truly independent medical cannabis supply chains ensures reliability and credibility moving forward and will undoubtedly create a significant enhancement of Medisonal’s value proposition.”
