Medicinal Cannabis

Medicinal Cannabis

Medicinal Cannabis is different to that of black-market cannabis as it is produced in a regulated environment.

The quality of the product is required to comply with the high Australian Therapeutic Goods Standards known as TG0 93.

The medicinal cannabis extracted from the cannabis plant frequently involves isolating useful Cannabinoids and refining the process to minimize the risk of harm. Medicinal Cannabis contains different levels and different types of Cannabinoids dependent on which medical condition they are used for.
