WA first medicinal cannabis clinic opens

Cannabis Access Clinics announced today that it has launched Western Australia’s first medicinal cannabis clinic, focused on helping doctors and patients navigate the regulatory pathway for prescribing medicinal cannabis products.

The Subiaco, Perth based clinic adds to Cannabis Access Clinics in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Patients unable to attend a clinic have the option of a video-based telehealth consultation.

Cannabis Access Clinics are staffed with GPs and specialists, and support patients who suffer from conditions for which there is some evidence that medicinal cannabis therapies may be beneficial. The clinics work in accordance with TGA guidance on medicinal cannabis, consulting patients with conditions including chronic pain (including cancer pain), chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting in cancer (CINV), multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, anxiety, sleep disorders, PTSD and other conditions.
