The process to get TGA approval and receive your prescription is:
- Discuss your health, needs and options with your doctor.
- If your doctor thinks medicinal cannabis is appropriate for you, they will apply to the TGA on your behalf.
- If your application is approved, this usually happens within 48-78 hours.
- The doctor writes your prescription, which goes to a pharmacy.
Individual patients cannot apply to the TGA for access to medicinal cannabis products.
