How does Alternaleaf help someone like me?

We are a leading Australian online clinic, connecting you with qualified doctors who are highly experienced in medical cannabis and treating people with chronic conditions including chronic back pain, anxiety, insomnia, nausea and vomiting due to chemotherapy, epilepsy, mental disorders, spasticity from multiple sclerosis and more. Our doctors will assess your suitability for alternative medicines, such as medical cannabis, and our Care Team is there to make sure you are supported along the way.

Do I need a referral?

No, you do not need a referral from your regular GP. Alternaleaf doctors are practising GPs with extensive experience prescribing medical cannabis.

How much does it cost?

We offer a complementary and obligation-free screening to identify if you may be suitable for medical cannabis. Initial consultation costs $149 and includes a pre-assessment to understand your medical history, a personalised treatment plan and your application to the TGA for approval to access medical cannabis. Follow up consultations are $59 where our team reviews your health progress, discusses potential adjustments to your medicine and provides repeat scripts. The frequency of consultations is determined by you and your doctor.
