Medicinal Cannabis. Dispensing.

When doctor and patient both believe medicinal cannabis is the desired
treatment option for a condition, the doctor will apply for use of medicinal
cannabis via the Special Access Scheme online system.

As part of the application process, the doctor will nominate:
- A pharmacy from which the medicinal cannabis can be collected by the patient
- A Medicinal cannabis product

The pharmacy will generally be:
- A local pharmacy convenient for the patient.
- If the prescribed formulation contains the active THC, the pharmacy will require the appropriate approvals to supply schedule 8 products.

Upon approval of access, the doctor will provide the wholesaler of the approved
medicinal cannabis product with a copy of the relevant approval documents (from
state and federal bodies) and a script.

The wholesaler will then supply the pharmacy with:
- A copy of the approval documents (from state and federal bodies) and a script.
- Product for patient pick up.

Orders are generally dispatched from wholesalers Monday – Wednesday to avoid storage by couriers over a weekend period.

Please note, medicinal cannabis products cannot be dispatched until all approvals and associated script have been received.

The process can be done as quickly as 4 days.
