How to Access Medical Cannabis in Australia

Cannabis is used to treat illnesses, but federal legislation has a strict hold on how people can access medical cannabis in Australia.

Recreational cannabis remains out of reach in Australia, but the country legalised medical cannabis in 2016, opening up access to the cannabis market for both Australians and investors alike.

Cannabis in Australia is used to treat a myriad of conditions, from epilepsy to neuropathic pain, but federal legislation has a strict hold on the distribution of cannabis in the country.

Patients can only receive medicinal cannabis products via a specialist and then may have to wait up to a month for government approval. However, there are signs that the limits to access are slowly lessening, including the approval of over-the-counter cannabidiol (CBD) products and new breakthroughs in government-sponsored medical cannabis research.

Dear Tech Investor,

Australia has witnessed 27 consecutive years of economic growth. Here’s an inside look at how to invest in its accelerating tech industry. The Australian tech sector is growing quickly as it continues to attract international attention.

PwC reports that between 2012 and 2017, information and communication technology exports reached US$3.2 billion, rising at a 60 percent uptick. Despite this growth, the tech sector in Australia is largely overshadowed by other export industries.

In light of these demands, the Australian government is working with technology companies to increase efficiencies in agriculture, biofuels and other tech related industries. With international interest accelerating in Australia's tech sector, our FREE outlook report looks at the different ways to invest in this growing industry.

So how do savvy investors manage to navigate the complex market of Australian tech? That’s a question we have set out to answer through deep-seated research and conversations with industry experts. We have gathered data and insights from industry experts including investors, fund managers and CEO’s.

All of this valuable information is available to you for FREE in the form of our new outlook report: Tech in Australia – Investing Down Under.

What’s Ahead for the Australian Tech Market?

According to the Economist, few countries have as many attractive economic conditions as Australia — namely low public debt levels, rising incomes and affordability. To boot, the economy has not witnessed a recession since September 1990.

Businesses are slowly integrating AI and advanced technology systems into business operations. In one study, 30 percent of chief investment officers surveyed in Australia and New Zealand were applying digital systems into their businesses. This represents a 70 percent growth opportunity in the future, the study added.

So how will this affect the Australian tech market? Which Australian tech stocks are worthy of your attention and investment? Read our FREE report to gain valuable insight into the Australian tech market!
