Sydney, NSW – Medicinal cannabis is a broad term for cannabis-based products to relieve chronic condition symptoms. While they are available for purchase online without a prescription, it’s hard to verify the safety and quality of each ingredient, even with third-party testing. However, medicinal cannabis prescriptions written or recommended by a specialist hospital doctor contain different cannabinoids, each with specific effects on the body. Despite improving people’s quality of life, plant-based treatments in Australia carry a heavy stigma, especially for those who don’t understand their mental and physical health benefits. harvest | Medical Cannabis Healthcare Centre | Sydney is on a mission to challenge the stigma with light-heartedness, laughter, joy, and friendliness, making medicinal cannabis discussions more comfortable for clients.

Medicinal cannabis has been legal in Australia since 2016 and can only be obtained from a pharmacy with a doctor’s prescription. Patients may qualify for medicinal cannabis sydney if they have a chronic condition diagnosed by a doctor for over three months. Patients who have tried conventional prescription medication but experience adverse side effects or observe no improvements can also qualify. Medicinal cannabis improves chronic/neuropathic pain, arthritis, PTSD/anxiety/depression, sleep disorders, autism symptoms, migraines, cancer pain/discomfort, epilepsy/seizures, neurological conditions, and many more.
The cannabis plant has over 100 cannabinoids, which act on specific receptors in the body to regulate brain activity, inflammation, heart rate, immune system activity, digestion, pain, stress/emotions, and bodily functions. While the health authorities don’t recommend smoking cannabis, approved forms in Australia include sprays, oil, vaporised flowers, and capsules. Like many medications, patients consuming medicinal cannabis may experience euphoria, impaired memory, dizziness/drowsiness, rapid heartbeat, and intoxication-like effects. The Medical group advises patients to consult their primary physicians regarding the possible side effects based on their condition and what to do if they experience anything unexpected after using medicinal cannabis.
