Hi Roena, thanks for the comment. Sorry to hear what you are going through. Medicinal cannabis can be great to help with pain and I am glad you found it to be helpful. Sometimes for pain we need to combine both CBD oil and THC to get the best effect. We would be happy to consult with you ourself or help you with your GP prescription. Let me know how you get on.
Hi I’ve recently finally got my 1st bottle of medical marijuana to try but I’m unsure if hemp or other as I was told it had THC. I’m taking 0.25ml 4xtimes a day and the brand is Tilray 25, which the chemist said is 1000mg 40ml bottle with 1ml THC – is that correct? Just about been on it for a month and found some days it works but definitely doesn’t stay in system for 8hrs as it says on Tilray site. I’m putting under my tongue etc. I feel takes up to to 60-90mins to work.
Yes, THC can also be legally prescribed by a GP in NZ. You can learn all about THC prescriptions and products here.
Hi Jared, thanks for the question. I understand that your GP is reluctant. But the good news is that we can help. We have many people using it for the reasons you have mentioned, each in their unique way. There are no specific criteria you need to meet, we are all open minded professionals looking to help people like you. With CBD oil, there are no concerns about drug testing as it does not get picked up. Even if you needed more than CBD oil, we always write letters of support for employers and can advocate on your behalf. Hope this helps!

Low-dose CBD cannabis oil can be sold in pharmacies from next year.
The decision from the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) changes low-dose CBD oil from a schedule four drug, which doctors have to prescribe, to a schedule three drug, which chemists can hand out over-the-counter without a prescription.
There will be a wait for products
“Sometimes those products say they have something in them and that’s not in there, so you can’t really rely on the fact that you’re getting a good product.”
When it comes to possible side effects, the medical association fears doctors won’t be able to properly monitor patients when the CBD oil is sold through pharmacies.
Firstly, these products won’t get you high. This is only low-dose CBD oil we’re talking about and products won’t be allowed to have more than 1 per cent THC (which is the psychoactive part of the plant).
