We’re here to help you access alternative treatment options
We believe you and your doctor should have the same confidence in our cannabinoid-based medicines that you would in any other prescription medicine. Zelira Therapeutics is passionate about contributing to world class science and conducting clinical trials to ensure we continue to deliver a range of ethical medicines for specific medical conditions.
Our focus is on helping people with specific conditions who feel that conventional treatments are providing limited relief. We’ve developed several pharmaceutical-grade cannabinoid-based medicines that are available and could improve the quality of your life.
Accessing cannabinoid-based medicines
• All registered medical doctors in Australia can prescribe medical cannabis like any other prescription medicine
• Zelira medicines are available in pharmacies Australia-wide, with delivery available to most Australian locations
To get started we suggest the following steps
Step 1 Discuss with your doctor
To consider if medicinal cannabis is an appropriate treatment, your doctor will make an evidence-based assessment considering your symptoms, family history and any other treatments that have been tried before.
To prescribe medicinal cannabis, your doctor will apply through the Special Access Scheme (SAS) pathway. Some doctors are already authorised prescribers or are familiar with the process to prescribe.
To help you with your discussion, you can also download our Doctor’s Fact Sheet to take with you to your appointment. It has helpful information about who we are and how to prescribe Zelira.
Step 2 Contact us
We’re happy to help. If your doctor wants more information about our medicines, including clinical evidence, or guidance with using the Special Access Scheme pathway they can go to the DOCTOR page of our website or contact us directly if they prefer:
