Under the Medicinal Cannabis Scheme, which came into effect on 1 April 2020, it’s illegal to buy medical marijuana in NZ without consulting a GP or medicinal cannabis specialist doctor and obtaining a prescription. You should only use it under the guidance of your doctor or medical practitioner, especially if you’re suffering from severe health conditions.
Start by booking an initial consultation with one of our medicinal cannabis doctors at Cannabis Clinic.

CBD oil is short for cannabidiol. This is a natural compound found in the cannabis plant, along with many other compounds such as THC. CBD oil doesn’t cause you to feel impaired or high but rather works alongside a natural hormonal system inside your body called the endocannabinoid system. It is thought that some people have a deficiency in this system and by correcting this, CBD oil has a positive effect.
We are strong believers that CBD oil and medicinal cannabis can help improve your health and wellbeing by reducing the symptoms of your condition(s).
Medicinal cannabis can help you if your symptoms are not improving using conventional medications or you are experiencing side effects of the treatment. It can also help you if you prefer to use plant based medicines over pharmaceutical medications.
