About Medicinal Cannabis
Cannabis has been used in various forms in both ancient and modern times for a vast array of conditions. Medical research into the medicinal use of cannabis is currently relatively limited, however, more and more studies are being performed on the use of medicinal cannabis to treat a number of conditions.
More than 100 different cannabinoids have been identified in cannabis, however, there are 2 main compounds that are medically important: delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD).
Medicinal cannabis products have different actions depending on the ratio of THC to CBD. CBD acts to balance out the psychoactive effects of THC, so combining CBD with THC allows a larger dose of THC with limited psychoactive side effects.
THC and CBD have the exact same molecule make up, with slight difference in how their atoms are arranged to give a slightly different molecular structure. THC is the main psychoactive compound of Cannabis that produces the ‘high’ sensation. Although CBD is psychoactive, it does not produce a ‘high’, instead helping with anxiety, depression and seizures.
THC and CBD are chemically similar to normal existing endocannabinoids neurotransmitters in the human body.
THC binds to Cannabinoid 1 (CB1) receptors in the brain, producing a sense of euphoria, or a ‘high’. CBD binds weakly, if at all, to these CB1 receptions. CBD needs THC to bind to the CB1 receptor, and can help reduce some of the unwanted psychoactive effects of THC (such as euphoria or sedation). CBD is very well tolerated, even in large doses.
Medicinal Cannabis is utilised to treat a variety of medical conditions, with differing CBD/THC components used for different issues.
1. CBD Dominant
Seizures, Inflammation, Chronic Pain, Psychosis or mental disorders, Inflammatory bowel disease, Nausea, Migraine, Depression, Anxiety
2. THC Dominant
Chronic pain, Muscle Spasticity, Glaucoma, Insomnia, Low appetite, Nausea, Anxiety
3. Balanced Dose
Anxiety, Tremor, Migraine, PTSD, Insomnia, Arthritis, Nausea, Vomiting, Chronic Pain
Drug Testing & Driving
Cannabinoids like THC and CBD are stored in adipose tissue, the bodies fat cells, and can be detected for several days or weeks after using them.
Most standard drug tests look for chemicals related to THC, however, CBD sensitive tests also exist.
In Victoria, it is an offence to drive with any amount of THC in your system. Driving is allowed with CBD only medications.
Patients taking CBD only medicines can drive lawfully, as long as they are not impaired.
Legally you are not allowed to drive with detectable THC in your system.
Consultation for permit application is an initial $55 out of pocket, with permit application itself costing the patient $200. Permit application is required for first script.
Permits are valid for 24 months.
The script and permit are then taken to a registered Pharmacy. The cost of the product is roughly between $150 – $250 payable to the pharmacist on dispensation.
A free telehealth consultation is conducted 2 weeks post initial prescription. This appointment is booked by the Doctors during initial consultation.
Further consultations have a standard consultation fee of $55 out of pocket. Additional follow up prescriptions attract a cost of $150.
