Legal access pathways

In NSW, a doctor can legally prescribe a cannabis medicine for a health condition if they believe it is an appropriate treatment option and they have obtained the relevant authorities.
 
Patients who believe a cannabis medicine may be helpful to their condition should consult their current treating doctor for advice.
 
A patient or his/her carer may receive, possess and administer a cannabis medicine which has been legally imported/manufactured and prescribed for him/her.
 
For further information on access pathways, patients may contact the Centre for Medicinal Cannabis Research and Innovation.
 

Clinical trials

The NSW Government has provided over $9 million towards clinical trials in three areas to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of cannabis medicines.
 
Further information about the NSW Government-funded clinical trials underway can be found on the Centre for Medicinal Cannabis Research and Innovation website.
