To educate and inform the Australian community that are interested in Medical Cannabis and Cannabidiol (CBD) products, so they are equipped with the correct information to make a well informed approach to medical cannabis for themselves or whom they care for.
We are passionate advocates for the rights and safety of consumers.
Our journey began in 2017 when CBD capsules were given to the elderly mother of a friend in Australia who suffers from acute joint pain from a life of struggling with rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. Within a week, anecdotally, she said she had one of the best sleeps in a long time and almost no pain in her legs and her wrist. A few days later she was able to sleep without the wrist support strap she previously always needed. This moment was the genesis of our interest into the medical cannabis industry in Australia and the potential health benefits for the human body.
Although the Australian federal government introduced legislation to decriminalise the use and sale of medical cannabis in 2016, medical cannabis and CBD products must be obtained through Government approved legal pathways. Patients are required to undergo the Special Access or Authorised Prescriber Schemes administered by the Therapeutic Goods Administration to qualify for a special prescription to obtain medical cannabis from their doctor. Instead of this, many Australians are choosing the quick and easy method and purchasing CBD Oil products online from international and local sellers. The problem with this is the lack of education of the right product to take, the correct dosage and a loss of data tracking of the potential health benefits. There are many who are also falling victim to scam products and "backyard brands" that do not contain CBD at all in their products.
We aim to provide the Australian community with the right information to make a well-informed decision when approaching medical cannabis product online, if they plan to accept the risks and purchase CBD Oil online.
In the future, CBD products may be more easily available and accessible for patients. Currently, while it remains a challenge to prevent people from buying CBD products (due to the desperation or nature of their suffering and illnesses) from online sellers, we champion to assist these people in making a more informed decision to stop them from getting scammed from online sellers.
