We believe that all Australians should be able to benefit from high-quality, locally-produced prescription medicines that have been created to the highest possible standard.
We know that no two patients are alike, and we are committed to developing unique strains and exclusive cannabinoid products to meet individual needs.
Often referred to as ‘medical marijuana’ or ‘medical cannabis’, medicinal cannabis is a term used to describe the use of the cannabis plant and its derivative extracts for therapeutic benefits. The term ‘cannabinoid’ refers to compounds found in the cannabis plant, including tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) – which can provide medicinal relief.
In the past 20 years, there has been increasing international focus on the medical potential of cannabis. Today, substantial evidence now exists demonstrating the efficacy of certain forms of cannabis as a treatment option for various medical conditions.
Current potential uses of cannabis (as adjunctive therapy or second line treatment) include1,2:
However, the therapeutic use of cannabis is under investigation for many, many more conditions.
Following the lead of countries like Canada and Israel, Australia legalised the cultivation of medicinal cannabis in early 2016. This legislation change, welcomed by thousands of patients with chronic and painful conditions, will advance scientific research into the therapeutic benefits of cannabinoid-based medical treatments – and will build the foundations of a commercial medical cannabis industry through a national licensing and permit scheme.
Medicinal cannabis can only be prescribed by a registered medical practitioner.
Before prescribing medicinal cannabis, the doctor will assess each patient to decide if the treatment is appropriate for their condition and individual circumstances.

At ANTG, we are dedicated to discovering and delivering the future of natural health and wellbeing.
Our team of master growers and plant scientists have years of experience, producing consistent high-volume yields of exceptional-quality medicinal cannabis. Our deep-rooted history in hemp cultivation means we understand the ideal plant harvest windows through cannabinoid profiling.
Our Australian home base uses best-in-class cultivation, extraction and laboratory processes – which not only guarantees superior quality and medicinal benefit, but also makes the process as clean and environmentally friendly as possible.
Our mastery in cannabis means we have the skill and experience to produce medicinal cannabis with a variable ratio of CBD and THC – tailoring treatments to the patient.
The ratio of CBD and THC can be varied to create three strains of cannabis which are;
We continue to search for high THC varieties, as well as breed exclusive strains, to deliver personalised medicines customised for different diseases and symptoms.
Chris Wright, Brisbane local who was diagnosed with Tourette’s syndrome at the age of 12 is one of the first patients recruited for the trial run by Brisbane’s Wesley Medical Research. The trial aims to assess the effects of medicinal cannabis on symptoms such as uncontrollable physical and/or verbal ticks.
Thanks to new streamlined processes, Queensland specialist doctors soon will be able to prescribe medicinal cannabis directly to their patients, meaning the medicine will be treated just like any other prescription drug in Queensland.
Growing cannabis for medicinal use has a huge potential in Australia. However, due to the nature of the plant, there is still stigma associated with cultivating medicinal cannabis.
ANTG becomes first Australian member of The Global Cannabis Partnership (GCP), not-for-profit collaboration of leaders in the government-sanctioned cannabis industry. The partnership offers a great opportunity for the company to take part in shaping the future of medicinal cannabis industry.
We are focused on research and development, partnering with leading scientists and medical institutions to develop cannabinoid medicines that offer safe and effective therapeutic benefits.LEARN ABOUT ANTG HERE >
