A couple of months ago I asked my GP about obtaining cannabis to treat my ongoing symptoms.

"Ohh ahhh, I don't know anything about the processes, I wouldn't know where to start..."

Being that I'm in SA and there being no clinic's here (our state Gov't (Liberal) still have their heads buried firmly up their own arses)  I thought the whole process would be a waste of time

I went investigating and found a clinic in NSW, who would go through the whole process online.

 

So after a couple of weeks of paperwork both from myself and my GP, today I got the call from the clinic and have had the initial approval.

I now have to obtain the approval from the TGA but from what I've been told this should not be a problem and should take less than a week.

The Dr I spoke to has told me that what he would be prescribing is a CBD and THC combination as my situation is pain related.

I asked the Dr about the cost of the medication itself as it is NOT on the PBS and I have to say it is NOT cheap.

The Dr himself would not actually tell me a defined cost but advised me to call the chemist in Victoria.

Upon doing so I was told $270/50ml + postage ($30), so $300 delivered. First thought "Fuck, it'd be cheaper to go buy an ounce" but have decided to follow through with the process.

 

At this point I have not been told of the recommended dosages, so how long that 50ml is going to last I am unsure.

I am also unsure if I may be able to get my local chemist to get it in for me or whether it needs to come from an approved compounding chemist, solely in Victoria.

 

So the processes have been started. The dr and the prepaid TGA approvals have cost me $550 so far (that's without the script itself), so let's see how much more it's gonna cost

When I have any further info I will let you all know.

 

Just thought others maybe interested

Me too Porky, I'll keep youse all updated as I go along. They've been fairly good so far with their info (apart from the costs). There were a few differing clinics with displays at the Cannabis Expo, but I'd already started the process with this particular one, so decided to follow through with them. I did however enquire with the other clinics and found that both costs and processes vary a fair bit.

Hey ilepay,

I have a friend going through the process for solely CBD, her situation is not pain related, and her costs are less, still in the $100's, but less than mine. Even so her's is still more than the $5.25/script. Do you know if that's for the writing of the script alone or for the medication itself. I've been advised that this particular concoction is called Capilano, it has a 10:13 ratio of THC:CBD. The company who produce it, Aphria, a Canadian company, sell it online for $100/50 mL, so yea certainly some profiteering going on. But then I do also wonder how much of that would be taxes for the federal govt. It's even worse than the local dealer taxing a bag lol $100 wholesale then $170 in taxes/duties  :signthis:  :greedy:  :crybaby: 

>:( BASTARDS
