Cultivation, manufacture, importation and exportation of medicinal cannabis is tightly controlled by the Office of Drug Control (ODC), the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and local state and territories.
Medicinal cannabis for patients
Medicinal cannabis and products are only available for specific patient groups under medical supervision. Medical practitioners will only be authorised to prescribe medicinal cannabis products for conditions where there is satisfactory scientific evidence supporting such use.
For medicinal cannabis information for consumers and patients the first step is to visit the Therapeutic Goods Administration.
