CBD Oil Gold Coast

What is CBD Oil

Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is a natural product derived from the cannabis plant. It is one of over 100 chemical compounds known as cannabinoids found in the plant [1]. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), another key compound in cannabis, CBD is not psychoactive. This means that it does not produce the "high" associated with THC. CBD oil is extracted from the cannabis plant and then diluted with a carrier oil, such as coconut or hemp seed oil [2].

There are three types of CBD oil: full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, and isolate. Full-spectrum CBD oil contains all cannabinoids, including THC. Broad-spectrum CBD oil contains several cannabinoids but excludes THC. Lastly, CBD isolate is the purest form of CBD, containing only cannabidiol and no other cannabinoids [3].

Research suggests that CBD oil may have several potential health benefits, from relieving chronic pain to reducing anxiety and depression [4]. However, it's important to note that while research is promising, more extensive studies are needed to fully understand the potential benefits and risks of CBD oil.



Is CBD oil legal in the Gold Coast?

CBD oil can be legally purchased and used in Gold Coast, provided that it is prescribed by an AHPRA-registered doctor. It's important to note that each prescription is given on a per-script basis after seeking approval from the Department of Health through the Special Access Scheme [6].

However, at Chronic Therapy, our doctors are Authorised Prescribers of cannabis medications. This means that they can prescribe cannabis medications, including CBD oil, without needing to seek approval for each prescription. This streamlines the process for patients, allowing for quicker access to the medications they need.

In addition to CBD oil, several other cannabis medications are available in Gold Coast with a prescription. These include:

  • Cannabis oils: These are oils derived from the cannabis plant. They contain varying ratios of CBD and THC and are commonly used for chronic pain, anxiety, and other health conditions [7].

Buy CBD Oil Gold Coast

If you are a patient in Gold Coast and you are interested in buying CBD oil, the first step is to book a teleconsultation with one of Chronic Therapy's doctors. During the consultation, the doctor will review your medical history, current medications, and health summary.

Once deemed appropriate, the doctor will issue an electronic prescription.

With the electronic prescription, you can buy your medications from any cannabis dispensing pharmacy in Gold Coast. However, we understand that most pharmacies currently have large markups on cannabis medications. For this reason, Chronic Therapy assists patients in purchasing their medications online.

The entire process typically takes around two business days for the medications to be delivered.


Prescription CBD Oil vs Black Market

While it may be tempting to buy CBD oil from the black market due to its availability and lack of prescription requirements, it's crucial to remember that purchasing CBD oil through legal means ensures quality, safety, and efficacy.

Prescription CBD oil is produced under strict guidelines to ensure it is of high quality. The production process is regulated, and the final product is tested for purity and potency [9]. This means that when you purchase prescription CBD oil, you can be assured that it contains the advertised amount of CBD, is free from harmful contaminants, and has been produced in a way that maximises its therapeutic potential.

On the other hand, black-market CBD oil is not subject to these same regulations. As such, the quality and purity of the product can vary greatly. There's a risk that black market CBD oil may contain harmful contaminants, such as pesticides or heavy metals [10]. Furthermore, it may not contain the advertised amount of CBD, meaning it may be less effective or potentially even harmful.

In addition, purchasing CBD oil from the black market is illegal and can result in legal consequences. On the other hand, purchasing CBD oil with a prescription from a registered doctor ensures that you are following the law and protecting your health.

CBD oil offers potential therapeutic benefits for many health conditions, from chronic pain to anxiety and depression. In Gold Coast, CBD oil and other cannabis medications can be obtained legally with a prescription from a registered doctor.

Patients in Gold Coast can obtain their prescribed medications from any cannabis dispensing pharmacy or have them delivered directly to their home via express postage.
