AltMed Podcast EP.02 – How to access medicinal cannabis in Australia

In this week’s AltMed Podcast, Andrew and Mitch chat about the regulatory processes to be aware of when accessing medicinal CBD in Australia. 

Australian regulatory bodies take a conservative and cautious approach when issuing medicinal cannabis. As there isn’t a great level of clinical research to warrant the prescription of those products, medicinal cannabis is often only justified as a last resort avenue when conventional treatment has proven to be ineffective.   

Additionally, medicinal CBD is an unapproved therapeutic good that is only prescribed at a health professional’s discretion. A doctor will therefore need to weigh in a number of considerations concerning the patient’s condition and health history in order to recommend medicinal CBD. However, since many in the medical field have little or no clinical experience with this alternative treatment, it’s advisable to consult a specialist clinic for a second opinion.  

While Andrew and Mitch are not healthcare professionals, this podcast offers an insight into the steps that should be taken when exploring medicinal CBD as a viable alternative to conventional treatments.
