Medicinal Cannabis

Medicinal Cannabis is a term that covers a broad range of products developed from the cannabis plant or the chemical compounds it produces, such as cannabinoids. These products are used for medical purposes to treat or relieve the symptoms of a variety of diseases, illnesses and injuries.

Cannabinoids work by interacting with receptors found throughout the body and in the brain, in a system called the
Endocannabinoid System (ECS). These compounds may work individually or together (in combination) to deliver the medical benefits that patients have reported from the use of Medicinal Cannabis, including the relief of pain, inflammation, anxiety and nausea, as well as in more complex ailments such as neuro-degenerative diseases. There is some evidence to suggest that the combination of these two cannabinoids (THC and CBD) when taken together along with the other compounds found in cannabis may work better (synergistically). This enhanced effect is called ‘the entourage effect’.

Initial consultation for prescribing of Cannabis is $150.00 , follow up appointments are $80.00.
