What is medicinal cannabis?

Medicinal cannabis comes from the hemp plant and is cultivated in Australia for a wide range of medical conditions. The TGA classifies medicinal cannabis into five different categories based on the amount of cannabinoid (CBD) within the entire product. The type of medicinal cannabis prescribed is determined based on each individual patient’s symptoms, medical history, and other factors.

Medicinal cannabis can be prescribed online if you’ve been diagnosed with specific conditions by a doctor and conventional treatments aren't effective or cause side effects. It can be obtained through a prescription and filled at a local pharmacy or by an online pharmacy and delivered to your home.

In can also be helpful for pain management and has proven effective for conditions such as cancer-related pain and arthritis.
