    UNCOVERING THE PURE POTENTIAL OF ORGANIC MEDICINE

    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.

    therapeutic use of medicinal cannabis

    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:

    • for the relief of severe nausea and vomiting due to chemotherapy
    • for the relief of pain associated with, for example cancer or neuropathy
    • to stimulate appetite in AIDS and cancer patients
    • to improve spasticity due to multiple sclerosis or spinal cord injury
    • to reduce the incidence of seizures in treatment-resistant epilepsy in children and young adults

    However, the therapeutic use of cannabis is under investigation for many, many more conditions.

    Medicinal Cannabis in Australia

    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.

    accessing Medicinal Cannabis

    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.

    For specific information for doctors on how to access medicinal cannabis products in Australia, please read this resource created by the Therapeutics Goods Administration.

    our strains

    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;

    • Strain 1- CBD high: THC low
    • Strain 2- CBD low: THC high
    • Strain 3- CBD=THC

    We continue to search for high THC varieties, as well as breed exclusive strains, to deliver personalised medicines customised for different diseases and symptoms.

    Our CEO and founder, Matt Cantelo has met with the business editor at The Sydney Morning Herald to discuss the future of medicinal cannabis in Australia, ANTG’s export plans and company’s current investments into research.
