Oral Medicinal Cannabis

Buying CBD Oil

What’s CBD?

CBD (Cannabidiol) is a compound that can be extracted from Cannabis plants that have been cultivated to contain large amounts of CBD by regulated manufacturing processes to ensure the integrity of the product.

CBD is completely non-psychotropic or non-psycho-active. It will not make you feel high or intoxicated in any way. CBD has a range of potential benefits including but not limited to:

  • anti-inflammatory
  • anti-tumoral
  • anti-bacterial
  • anti-spasmodic
  • anti-epileptic
  • anti-anxiety
  • immuno-suppressive
  • anti-diabetic
  • neuroprotective

CBD can help to treat people with:

  • Inflammation
  • Pain
  • Poor metabolic function
  • Low appetite
  • Insomnia
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Schizophrenia
  • PTSD

It may not be effective for everyone, but for some it can be life-changing.

Cannabis Plant

Cannabis is a family of plants with two primary classifications  –  Indica and Sativa, however these classifications are under debate. What is more important than the classifications is the type and amount of Cannabinoids in your Cannabis oil.

The scientific word for Cannabis is Cannabis Sativa.

Note: Marijuana is the bastardised word for ‘Marihuana.’ Marihuana is the Mexican word for any Cannabis plant. The term Marijuana is mostly used these days in place of Cannabis (and not hemp) as it is associated these days with recreational Cannabis (Cannabis high in THC).

Cannabinoids: CBD & THC

The two central operative substances in cannabis plants are Cannabidiol (CBD) and delta-9 Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is the compound found in street or black market Cannabis which has been cultivated for recreational purposes. Black market cannabis is unlikely to contain other Cannabinoids that may be more beneficial for treating your conditions or symptoms. THC is a psycho-active compound and will illicit a psycho-active response, making you feel high.

CBD and THC (both Cannabinoids) are listed on the Controlled Drug Register in Australia, meaning that they cannot be legally sold direct to the public. Products with less than 0.01% of any Cannabinoids can be sold direct to the public in Australia, but 0.01% is not a therapeutic dose.

Australian Legislation

If you’re looking to buy CBD oil in Australia, you cannot buy it online or over the counter. CBD is considered a Schedule 4 Controlled Drug by the Office of Drug Control.  This means that a doctor must apply to the TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) for an approval to be able to prescribe products containing CBD.

The TGA has been made aware of false claims made by some US and other International companies supplying products containing (or claiming to contain) CBD (Cannabidiol)

The TGA have posted the following on their website:

Companies located in the United States have been illegally exporting Cannabidiol (CBD) and hemp products to persons in Australia without import permission.

The TGA is aware of at least one company who has claimed that the TGA has invited them to register their CBD and hemp products on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG) due to growing demand. This is incorrect. The TGA does not ‘invite’ businesses or sponsors to register a product on the ARTG. The onus is on the sponsor to apply to the TGA and follow due process.

Cannabis Doctors

CDA doctors will apply to the TGA for an approval to be able to prescribe you a particular regulated and legal product. Each application he does is per patient, per product. Your Cannabis Doctor will check your medical history and current medications list to ensure that you’re not taking any substances which could interact with CBD making your current medications less or more effective or creating side effects. The Cannabis Doctor will provide a medical specialist, products and appropriate information for your needs.

Understanding the distinctive preparation of each product is a significant consideration when buying CBD oil, as the concentration of CBD varies with each method of administration.

Furthermore, you should always buy CBD oil through legal channels to ensure that:

  • you know what you’re getting,
  • what the label claims and what’s in the bottle is the same thing, and
  • that there are no harmful substances present in the product.

What’s CBD or Cannabidiol Oil?

CBD oil contains Cannabidiol (CBD) in a carrier oil such as Hemp Seed Oil, Olive Oil or MCT Oil.  Some oils contain other Cannabinoids within the oil.

When Medical Cannabis oils are commercially manufactured and adhere to the strict standards of manufacturing and sale, the concentrations of CBD and THC must be well-managed to make the medicine easy to calculate doses and provide consistency from bottle to bottle. Consistency is not likely with black market products.

Labelling and Package Details

Medical grade cannabis oils are highly regulated meaning that they must conform to strict standards such as clearly stating all ingredients and active ingredient measures on the product packaging. If your Cannabis oil does’t tell you how many mg of the active ingredient is in the bottle, the product is likely to be illicit and you cannot be sure that it includes any active ingredients. Some products bought from other countries online may appear to be medical grade but if they are not regulated by Australian legislative bodies, you cannot be trust them.

Percentages of active ingredients are not helpful to you unless the packaging also states the measure of all content within the product. For e.g. 10ml of CBD Oil stating 10% CBD contains 90% carrier oil (such as Hemp Seed Oil) and 10% CBD. But it is not stating how much CBD in milligrams is in the product.

Ratio of THC to CBD

CBD is known to decrease the psycho-active properties of THC. A more significant proportion of CBD-to-THC means less psychoactive results.

People using these Cannabinoids together need to determine the best ratio of CBD to THC to treat their condition. This is why there are so many products containing different ratios of CBD to THC.

Cannabis oils can contain a ratio of CBD to THC, or they can contain only THC or only CBD.

As an example:

THC 20:8 CBD or THC 20%: 8% CBD is a high THC oil. The remaining percent (72%) is carrier oil.

And THC 5: 20 CBD or 5% THC to 20% CBD a low CBD oil

Any remainder % is the carrier oil.

Note: The product should also state the active component measurement in milligrams for dosage reasons.

The difference between Hemp oil and CBD oil.

These days you can find many Hemp products on the shelf of your local supermarket. These are usually products derived from Hemp seeds such as Hemp seed powder and Hemp seed oil. While Hemp seeds contain many beneficial nutrients such as protein, omegas and iron, it doesn’t usually contain therapeutic amounts of Cannabinoids (including CBD). CBD oil is Cannabis oil with a substantial proportion of Cannabidiol (CBD). It’s produced from the flowers, leaves and stalks of the Cannabis plant and not from the seeds like Hemp oil.

Although both oils derive from the same plant, Hemp oil is fabricated from the seeds of the hemp plant which has minimal Cannabinoids.

Hemp is grown and cultivated primarily for industrial purposes such as for textiles and health foods, while Cannabis is grown for recreational and medicinal purposes.

Some hemp products may contain trace amounts of CBD. If they contain over 0.04% CBD or over 0.01% THC then this product is illegal to have on your person without an approved prescription from an Australian-registered Medical Practitioner. Cannabis Doctors Australia (CDA) urges the public to be cautious about buying hemp products, over the shelf or online, that claim to contain CBD.

Not only is it illegal, but you may only be purchasing a Hemp seed oil product that contains only trace amounts of CBD. Without being regulated through the legal channels, you cannot trust the label of this product as the suppliers are not subject to audits and enforcement by the TGA.

Furthermore, illegal and unregulated products can contain harmful contaminants such as heavy metals, bacteria, fungus, viruses, herbicides, or pesticides.

Knowing the content and cost of your product

By working out the price per milligram (mg) of each Cannabinoid (both THC and CBD) of each bottle that you’re comparing, you should find that CBD costs between $0.08 – and $0.50 per mg of CBD.

For combination oils (CBD & THC) you should expect to pay between $0.25 and $0.60 per mg.

If the bottle only has a percentage or a mg / ml indication on the label (instead of a total CBD content), first we’ll need to work out the total amount of CBD first.

 

Example 1: Total Cannabinoids

A 10ml bottle of CBD oil with 300 mg of CBD costs $80.

We can use the $ / mg method to work out how much each mg of CBD costs:

 

Cost / mg = $ (per mg)

$80 / 300mg = $0.26

 

Therefore, each mg of CBD costs 26 cents.

Example 2: milligrams / millilitre (mg/ml)

A 60ml bottle purchased for $255 contains 10 mg/ml of CBD. There is 60 ml of total oil (CBD in a carrier oil).

 

mg x ml = total mg of Cannabinoid in the bottle

10 mg x 60 ml = 600 mg of CBD (total)

 

$255 / 600 = $0.43

 

Which bottle of oil is more value for money? Bottle 1. Bottle is smaller (10 ml), but the contents are more concentrated than Bottle 2 (60ml).

Note: ‘300 mg / ml’ is very different to ‘300 mg’ and it always depends on the size of the bottle.

    I am interested in providing treatment for my mother whom has been experiencing chronic pain ,conventional doctors are unable to find the cause and just provide anti inflammatories when needed.
    We have tried everything
    Cupping somewhat eases the pain but only temporarily.
    Would like another solution.

      Due to government regulations we cannot advertise product specifications or price to the public. If other companies are doing so they are doing it illegally. Our doctors can provide you a price and product list while in consultation with you.

      You should also note that you cannot buy CBD oil online legally in Australia. All cannabis products whether CBD only or hybrids contains THC and other Cannabinoids are considered by the TGA as restricted drugs and are listed as Schedule 4 (CBD) and Schedule 8 (THC). Medical Marijuana can only be prescribed by an Australian-registered medical practitioner under approval from the Department of Health. Cannabis that has been bought online and via illegal channels is not considered Medical and is not regulated. Therefore, it may not contain the ingredients that it states on the label and it may not have concentrated active ingredients. It may also contain harmful pesticides, bacteria, heavy metals and other contaminants.

However, the doctor will be able to help you to select an affordable Medical Marijuana product within the consultation. We can tell you that the average patient pays $4-10 per day for product. Dosages differ from patient to patient and depend on the condition, age, weight, metabolism and the cannabinoid being prescribed. Our doctors prescribe any products that are on the legal market and will be able to provide you with the cost per mg of THC or CBD within the consultation.

      Hi Lori,
      Medical Cannabis is not yet subsidised by the government at all. Veterans are able to apply to get refunds. The cost for the consultations are for the doctors time to consult with you, complete the application, liaise with the TGA about your case, write the prescription and liaise with your regular doctor. $199 for all of this is a very good deal. Some of our competitors advertise $80 for the initial consult but they are hiding additional costs that are revealed at a later stage of the process.

    Would this benefit someone with post herpetic neuralgia resulting from shingles?

    December 10, 2019 at 8:37 am
    • rj@cdaclinics.com.au Reply

      Hi Brenda, Medical Cannabis for postherpetic neuralgia has anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties that can significantly reduce the pain shingles causes and any long-term effects. Because you have cannabinoid receptors spread out throughout your body, and the HZ virus doesn’t attack them, Medical Cannabis may provide you with the needed relief.

    Wish I knew about this before now!
    I cared for my defacto partner who suffered a lot pain etc with cancer, he passed away in April. We asked about CBD oil throughout the 4 years he was receiving treatment. I think if he knew about this site, he would have opted for alternative treatment. Whenever he or I asked his specialists and doctors about CBD oil, we were told that they only treat with certain drugs, don’t know anything about CBD oil and only use science proven treatment blah blah… I found this most upsetting and was very annoyed that we were pushed away while Mr Whitecoat was getting paid for the use of their drugs.
    I myself have been suffering with chronic pain for over 30 years, nothing is helping, now I suffer from anxiety, depression and can’t seem to get more than 4 hours sleep a night.
    I’ll be looking into CBD now. Thank you

    Hi, if i sign up with you guys is it possible to import a CBD oil of my liking? I’m looking at Chris Kresser recommended ojai energetics the only water encapsulated brand said to be 20 times more bioavailable than standard fat based CBD. Also it is said you can feel the effects in 30 seconds instead of the standard 30 minutes. Cheers. Otherwise can you give me any information on the brand of CBD oil that would be given?

    I would like to ask if medical cannabis can help my husband who is in the advanced stage of Pulmonary Fibrosis of Lungs. This condition diagnosed early 2016. He tried and stopped Pirfenidone because of side effects. He commenced Nintedanib (Ofev) sp? in 2017 and remains on this medication. He is now ‘on’ oxygen 4 litres per minute 24/7. As his quality of life diminishes, . We have support through palliative care along with other medications to ease side effects like muscular pain, stress, etc. I would like to know what else we can do for him.

    Hi, on reading Janets comments I find myself (as my wifes carer) in a similar position. Presently hospital administered drugs are supplied intravenously once a month to her, this gives some relief over the month. Following my research to obtain CBD oil to assist with her cronic arthritis pain & inflamation of joints when nothing seems to work is my top priority. Please advise on how to take this further as her GP & specialist are unable or unwilling to assist. Thanks Bruce

    Hi I suffer from severe and chronic PTSD. I’ve spent over 80 weeks in various Psychiatric hospitals including 4 six week admissions at Ward 17 (Austin Repat that was only military ptsd unit until after black Saturday when they began to accept some police paramedics and very occasional work cover cases. Anayway I have been on over 50 different medications over the past 6 years without much relief at all I think, as I don’t know where I’d be without treatment. I began TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) and this has been the only treatment to significantly help me other than nightmare blocking medication Prazosin. I had to cease Prazosin after being on it for four years as I’ve had too many fainting episodes resulting in injury. I’ve started 20mg/ml pure CBD for the first time tonight. My psychiatrist has had excellent results with many PTSD patients in regards to improving sleep, reducing anxiety and other symptoms. Hence enabling patients to further reduce other medications. I have already been able to successfully reduce medications with TMS however am still very non functional and symptomatic. Very low level of functioning. I’m wondering if CBD will assists in involuntary flight/fight response to sudden noises and if it may assist in reducing nightmare intensity and regularity. I’ve known people smoking recreationaly to experience less to no dreaming/ nightmares but don’t want to take THC at all. Sorry very long but any advice?

    I have suffered from
    Psoriasis for years and am hoping cannabis oil may help in managing this.

    April 8, 2020 at 12:37 pm
    • cdaclinics Reply

      It’s certainly worth a try. Psoriasis triggers are thought to be stress, infections, and cold. Cannabis taken internally can help with stress reduction and CBD has anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. CBD applied topically may also help and a topical treatment can be compounded by a compounding pharmacist. Our doctors can arrange a compounding script as well as an oral medication script.
      A lot more research is needed on cannabis and skin conditions, but studies do indicate that cannabis reduces the severity of inflammation associated with some conditions, including autoimmune disorders like psoriasis. Here’s an study that shows Cannabis is a strong immuno-modulator and anti-inflammatory https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2828614/

    Hi,
    If I will purchase CBD Oil through the doctor the legal way. After the whole procedure will I have to pay more if I will need a higher dosage? e.g. if I take it for sleep disorders my dosage can be between 40 – 160 mg CBD per day. But for schizophrenia the dosage can be a lot higher, between 40 – 1280 mg CBD per day. Let’s say that I need 1000 mg CBD per day, will I have to pay more than somebody who needs 40 mg CBD per day?

He lives with my mum in a small country town and is very open to trying CBD Oil for the pain to try to get some relief. It is getting increasingly difficult for him to do anything too physical.

    Hi,

    My husband and I have been trying for a baby for 2 and a half years and I was wondering if taking low dose cbd oil every now and then when my breathing gets so bad and tight would be beneficial or be detrimental to foetal development. I also suffer from acute upper left scapula pain resulting from over 30 years of playing violin. This pushes on my ribs and makes a sharp pain in my chest and I have trouble taking deep effortless breaths. I also have hashimotos disease that I have been able to keep at bay with diet and lifestyle choices. So again my real question is would taking cbd oil sporadically be harmful for my chances of falling pregnant? Obviously I wouldn’t take it if I was to become pregnant.

    Any help would be so so appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Phoebe
