Accessing Medicinal Cannabis in Australia & New Zealand

In Australia, all medicines must be entered on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG), administered by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), prior to supply within Australia. Tilray is currently providing investigational medical cannabis products for trials with the objective of registering them in the region.
Products that are not registered on the ARTG can only be accessed via one of 3 pathways:
In New Zealand medicines must be registered with MedSafe, part of the Ministry of Health (MoH).
Unregistered medicinal cannabis products can be accessed with approval from the MoH. More information can be found here.
