Whether you’re in Perth or anywhere else in Western Australia, CA Clinics have simple and easy to arrange free screening consultations available online. Screening appointments take about 15 minutes and assess your condition to determine if there is evidence indicating medicinal cannabis may benefit your symptoms, as well as to confirm that you’ve already tried conventional treatments available.
What conditions can CA Clinics help with?
CA Clinics connects patients with doctors who specialise in prescribing medicinal cannabis. The most common conditions that our network helps to manage are:

- Palliative care
Other common conditions that the CA Clinics network may help you with include:
- Irritable Bowel Diseases
- Temporomandibular joint syndrome
- Cancer and non-cancer chronic pain
- Sleep disorders
Indications for alternative plant based treatment aren’t limited to this list. However, for TGA approval, the prescribing doctor must present some scientific evidence that supports to use of these therapies for a medical condition in reducing specific symptoms.
How much does treatment in Western Australia cost?
The first Screening Appointment is free and can be booked here or by calling 1300 991 477. If your condition meets eligibility criteria, the Initial Consultation assessing your condition and potential treatment options is $99. Following that, patients who receive TGA approval have additional costs for monitoring appointments and the price of the prescription.
At present, Australian patients receiving treatment are estimated to be paying between $14-$91 per week for prescriptions, this varies depending on the condition and dose required.
Medicinal cannabis prescriptions are not yet covered by the Pharmaceuticals Benefits Scheme, so patients will pay the full cost of the medicine. More information on pricing can be found here.
Prescription approval waiting time
On average, CA Clinics have found that treatment approvals in Western Australia come in 2-4 days after application. The approval processing time can vary given the complexity of individual cases. While some applications are granted as quickly as 24 hours, others can take a little longer, perhaps up to a week.
How long does it take for my treatment to arrive?
After TGA approval, the treatment needs to be ordered by your prescribing pharmacist. Pharmacies aren’t legally allowed to carry stock of these products so depending on where the product is sourced, local or international, prescriptions can take between 1-3 weeks to arrive.
What does a telehealth appointment look like?
Telehealth appointments are conducted over the phone or video call. The main difference between face-to-face appointments and telehealth consultations is that the doctor cannot conduct any physical examinations. Therefore, they may ask extra questions of you or your regular GP, potentially requesting blood tests or other investigations depending on your presentation and medical history.
Otherwise, telehealth functions much the same as a normal doctors appointments with the physician inquiring about all aspects of your health, medical history and the presenting condition to determine the best treatment pathway for you.
Telehealth provides easier access to healthcare services for those whose mobility, time restraints, location or health conditions may prevent them from accessing medical services.
CBD Oil Perth
CBD oil is effectively used in various formulations. It is most commonly produced as an oil for ingesting. CBD can be administered as liquid, gel capsules, through topical application, via inhalation, and with sublingual tinctures.
CBD needs to be prescribed by a medical practitioner before it can be purchased at a pharmacy. Treatment options in Perth are limited, so it’s important to connect with a pharmacy or authorised dispensary (such as Cannatrek) that is committed to fair and equitable distribution of cannabis oil and other medical marijuana products.
What are the benefits of CBD oil in Western Australia?
CBD oil is a new medicine on the Australian market. It is somewhat controversial, as CBD (cannabidiol) is found in the marijuana plant. However, CBD doesn’t contain tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the compound found in marijuana known to cause a psychotropic ‘high’ effect.
CBD oil is safe to use, and it is very uncommon for patients to suffer any concerning side effects. The health benefits of CBD are becoming well known, and clinical trials are ongoing to evaluate the efficacy of CBD oil in treating even more medical conditions. CBD oil is legal in Perth with a doctor’s prescription, and some products may be accessible via the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme.
What conditions is CBD used to help treat?
If you qualify for medically approved CBD oil, Cannatrek can provide an initial consultation and referral to a medical practitioner in your area who is favourable to the distribution of high quality medicinal cannabis products. Here are just some of the potential health benefits and uses of CBD oil.
Pain: Chronic pain is a common condition associated with many illnesses and conditions. In some cases chronic pain has no obvious origin. CBD oil shows promise in assisting the management of chronic pain.
Anxiety: Stress factors are widespread, negatively impacting people’s health and wellbeing. CBD oil is well known for reducing anxiety levels in some patients, particularly people suffering from anxiety disorders.
Epilepsy: A number of controlled and authoritative studies have shown the ability of CBD oil to dramatically reduce the number of seizures in patients who may otherwise be resistant to traditional medications.
Cancer: CBD oil is known to alleviate pain, stimulate appetite, and treat nausea experienced by some cancer patients. In addition, cannabinoids including CBD have been shown to produce tumor modulating effects.
Other uses: There are many uses for CBD oil products and other cannabis therapies. Early studies show promise in treating Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis and other serious ailments.
Are there any side effects when you take CBD oil?
CBD oil is well tolerated, although there are potential side effects to be aware of. These can include:
Side effects can sometimes be related to the CBD oil delivery method or dosage, so make sure to discuss your needs with your treating doctor. To ensure correct delivery, dosage, and high product quality, connect with Cannatrek qualified cannabis doctors and authorised prescribers.
