FAQs

In order to become a medicinal cannabis patient in South Africa, you will need to register as a patient on the IntroCann Portal

Once registered, you will then need to consult with a cannabinoid prescribing doctor, either virtually or in person.

The doctor will then submit a Section 21 Application for you, and once approved you will be able to pay for and have your medicine delivered to your door. 

Cannabis has been decriminalised in South Africa since 2018 by the Constitutional Court. Thus, it is no longer a criminal offence for citizens to consume and grow cannabis in private for personal consumption. Legal cannabis can only be obtained via a Section 21 Application, prescribed by a registered doctor and approved by SAHPRA, the local medical regulator.

For people that have never tried medicinal cannabis before, the doctors will carefully determine your condition and the most appropriate treatment regime. Medicinal Cannabis can take from a few days up to 3 months in order to feel the full benefit of the treatment depending on your condition.

Vaporisation results in rapid absorption into the body, with first effects occurring typically within 90 seconds, reaching a peak after 15-30 minutes, and lasting 2-4 hours. This method is best used where a rapid onset of action is desired. Oral preparations such as oils or capsules are absorbed more slowly and take around 30-90 minutes to take effect. Peak effects occur after 2-4 hours and can last for up to 8 hours.

Exactly how people respond varies from person to person and cannabis doesn’t work for everyone. At Cannabis Clinics, we support you along the whole process to find a regiment that works for you.

Purchasing or consuming cannabis from the black market exposes patients to numerous risks. Legal producers of cannabis products follow the stringent rules of their countries’ health regulations, while illegal growers do not follow any specified regulations or standards. Regulations and standards are in place to ensure the supply of the highest quality medical grade product. This is to guarantee that their products meet health and safety standards, and provide consistent dosages which are essential in treating health conditions.
