Can I access legal CBD in Queensland?

CBD oil is a plant-based treatment that may be an option for a range of health concerns, where other conventional medications have been unsuccessful or cause intolerable side effects.

CBD oil has been legal in Queensland and across Australia since 2016. Regulatory changes effective in 2021 now mean patients can now legally access CBD oil prescriptions, when appropriate, from health providers such as CA Connect.

What conditions can CBD be approved for?

For people suffering from conditions such as chronic pain, anxiety or insomnia, CBD oil may be a plant-based adjunct treatment to help reduce symptoms – specifically when other conventional treatments have been unsuccessful.

CBD (cannabidiol) has many therapeutic actions that could potentially benefit other medical conditions. For TGA approval, some clinical or preclinical evidence is necessary to support the use of CBD in addressing your medical condition or reducing symptoms.
