How it works?

We provide alternative medicinal cannabis care plans that may include CBD and THC therapies to replace ineffective ongoing treatments.

How to access medicinal cannabis in Australia?

Medicinal cannabis step 1

Screening of suitability

A 15 minute call with our allied health professionals to assess your suitability for medicinal cannabis. If suitable, a patient is asked to send in a Referral and Health Summary to begin their chronic care journey. Note: DVA patients require a letter from their treating specialist. 

Medicinal cannabis step 2

Initial Consultation

Once we have received a patient’s referral and medical history, CA Clinics’ medicinal cannabis doctor deep dives into the patient’s case. The doctor also uses this time to assess medical cannabis treatment options that could come in the form of TGA authorised THC and/or CBD oils, compounds or vaporisers.

Post-Approval Consultation

After the Initial Consultation, our medical cannabis team applies for a TGA approval to accompany the doctor’s script. The CA Clinics doctor then briefs the patient on what to expect of their care and medication plan.

Medicinal cannabis step 4

Ongoing Monitoring

Regular monitoring consultations follow a patient’s progress of their medicinal cannabis treatments with referring doctors kept in the loop.
