People on the Isle of Man with private prescriptions for medicinal cannabis could soon be able to access the products through a local pharmacy.
The government is asking for bids from pharmacies to run a trial service for 12 months.
A public consultation in 2019 showed strong support for access to the products to be made available.
Medicinal cannabis is not currently available on the Manx NHS and no GPs are registered to prescribe it.
About 55% of those who took part in the consultation supported buying medicinal cannabis over the counter at pharmacies.
A further 36% backed medical professionals being given more freedom to prescribe the products.
