Medicinal Cannabis Cost

We offer the most affordable pricing in the market.

 

PRODUCT

Approximately $4 to $10 a day on average depending on the ratio of THC and CBD in the prescribed product and the amount individually used. This could also vary depending on the pharmacy dispensing fee. CDA Clinics provides pharmacies with our recommended retail price for our products. Due to government regulations we cannot advertise our products or pricelists publicly. Products and prices can be discussed in consultation with the prescribing doctor.

 

CONSULTATIONS

This differs per doctor and clinic. CDA Clinics suggests its Affiliate Doctors should charge the following costs:

MEDICARE REBATES

Unfortunately, you can not get a medicare rebate for TeleHealth unless you live in a remote area where there are no other alternatives available to you, and a specialist other than our Medicinal Cannabis specialists are involved in the consultation.
