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.
Perth’s first medicinal cannabis clinic has been opened in Subiaco. This clinic is the fourth location in Australia and has been set up to streamline access to medicinal cannabis and help to speed up the application process.
A new law has been passed by the New Zealand Government which will allow terminally ill patients to access cannabis for medicinal use. The law will also allow medicinal cannabis to be manufactured in the country and exported overseas. New regulations are expected to be in place within a year.
Matt Cantelo recently sat down with leading business publication, My Business to discuss the future of the Australian medicinal cannabis industry, ANTG’s plans for growth, the role of the industry to facilitate greater research and ANTG’s exciting partnership to export Australian grown cannabis to the German market.
A new world-first trial will examine whether oral medicinal cannabis can affect tumour growth in patients with glioma, a common type of brain cancer.
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 >
