Medical Cannabis has been legal in Australia for two years and can be accessed through any Australia registered Medical Doctor. CDA Clinics can assist you to access Medical Cannabis through your regular Doctor or we can assist your doctor in prescribing Medical Cannabis for you. Please get your doctor to contact us.

Alternatively, print this letter and take this to your regular Doctor who can provide you with a referral letter and medical history.


Conditions

There are no restrictions imposed by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) on the conditions that a doctor can apply to access medical cannabis for their patient. The TGA website states that they will consider any condition lasting longer than 3 months that hasn’t responded to conventional treatments. The TGA analyses each individual patient’s application, which means there is no guarantee that your application will be approved.

To date, the TGA has approved SAS applications including, but not limited to, the following conditions:

  • Chronic pain
  • Cancer pain
  • Neuropathic pain
  • Palliative care
  • Epilepsy
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Dementia
  • Autism
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Spasticity from neurological conditions
  • Anorexia and wasting associated with chronic illness (such as cancer)
  • Chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting
