Cannabis therapeutics is a personalised medicine. Your doctor will recommend a therapeutic dose, however, the number and timing of drops /mL’s to reach the optimal dose will vary between individuals. Determining the optimal individualised dose of medical cannabis oil may take some weeks to achieve. It’s important to start with a low dose and gradually increase the dose over a period of time (also known as titrating). Record every dose in a dosing diary to find your individualised optimal dose

The goal is to find the minimum effective dose.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER MY INITIAL CONSULT?

1. You must pay for your consult before we can submit your application to the TGA, and before your prescription can be created and sent to the pharmacy.

2. When your application is approved, the doctor will write your prescription and send it to the pharmacy.

3. The pharmacy will order your medicine from the supplier. When the pharmacy has your physical prescription and the medicine has arrived, the pharmacy will contact you.

This process will take up to 10 business days. Please contact the clinic if you have not been contacted after 10 days. In some cases, the TGA requires more information for your application to be approved and this can take longer.
