Medicinal Cannabis in Australia

Patients commonly asked our clinicians if they consider medicinal cannabis as a treatment option. Hence, we've decided to provide information about access, legalities, driving laws etc. on this page.

Is cannabis legal?

Globally speaking there are three types of cannabis regulatory frameworks that every legislation can be appointed to: Illegal, medical only, and recreational. Australia fits within the second category, meaning that cannabis is only allowed to be prescribed by a doctor to relieve the symptoms of a medical condition. This has a few implications: 

  • There is regulatory oversight into the medicinal products that you obtain through legal pathways 
  • Suppliers need licenses and adhere to certain standards like GMP (Goods manufacturing practices) 
  • With the products you obtain you can be sure that you get what’s written on the box and nothing else.
