Patient Services

Medicinal cannabis assessment, physician appointments and nursing support

Services for Tetra Health Patients 

Medical cannabis is not like other prescription medications. Pathways to access are complex, and treatment response is highly individual due to a number of factors. 

Currently in Australia, patients are only eligible for medicinal cannabis if they have a chronic condition and they have trialled conventional pharmaceutical drugs and experience adverse effects, or their symptoms are not fully controlled.

At this time, Medical Cannabis is NOT a first line therapy.  

We assist patients in making informed choices and offer support to your doctor based on clinical research and real patient data. If deemed suitable for treatment by your doctor or our nursing team, you can expect personalised treatment plans, ongoing support from our specialist nurses, a 1800 support line and a review of cannabinoid medicines that best suit your symptoms.

Tetra has access to a number of difference medications that vary in cannabinoid content. Tetra is product agnostic and works with any  TGO93 approved supplier of medical cannabis products in  Australia.

What is Medicinal Cannabis?

Cannabis is a plant that grows throughout temperate and tropical climates. The leaves and flowering tops of cannabis plants product more than 500 active ingredients, and over 100 of those are called “cannabinoids”. The major active and commonly known cannabinoid compounds are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). The different combinations of these compounds in cannabinoid medications have a wide range of effects on our individual endocannabinoid systems.

Indications for Use

Medicinal cannabis may be helpful with the management of symptoms associated with a wide variety of conditions that have not responded to conventional treatments.
