About Medicinal Cannabis
We understand the huge potential cannabis and its extracts have as a medicine. Our doctors are educated in medicinal cannabis and CBD oil and can provide consultations, support and advice.
With the amount of positive research coming out surrounding the cannabis plant and all its potential therapeutic benefits, our doctors have taken specialist interest in this emerging branch of medicine and how to best treat our patients.
As of April 1st 2020, all medicinal cannabis products are prescription only. CBD oil is no longer a controlled drug that requires ministry approval, and medical cannabis products containing THC that have been assessed and approved by the Ministry of Health can also be prescribed.

The initial consult focuses on whether or not cannabis therapy is suitable for you. If it is considered appropriate, we will complete the informed consent process which includes information about cannabis and CBD, the costs involved, and how to receive the medication. We will also communicate with your regular GP to ensure everyone is on the same page, and answer any questions either you or your GP have.
After booking a time slot, you will receive an email with links to the patient’s forms to fill out. Here you can select if you would like a phone call or video call. If you choose video, make sure you have a computer with a webcam or use a smartphone.
After 2-4 weeks of cannabis and CBD therapy, we will assess you to see how symptoms have changed. If there is a significant improvement, and you are happy with the results, we will adjust doses as necessary and repeat medications as necessary.
Consultation bookings are required to be paid online. If you want to proceed with a CBD prescription, call into reception after your appointment and we’ll take payment over the phone.
