Medicinal cannabis prescribed by a doctor in Australia is legal.  Medicinal cannabis ordered online or without a prescription is illegal.

Accessing illegal medicinal cannabis carries a number of risks including:

  • buyers are at risk of being scammed
  • products may contain too little or too much THC or CBD which can be either harmful or ineffective
  • products may be contaminated and contain undisclosed or dangerous ingredients
  • products may be past their use-by date.

Medicinal cannabis products accessed legally in Australia:

  • are regulated to ensure Australian quality and safety standards
  • must contain known quantities of the cannabinoids THC and CBD
  • must not contain any moulds, fungi, bacteria, pesticides, heavy metals or other potentially harmful substances
  • are prescribed by a doctor who is responsible for monitoring the patient’s progress.
