Information for NZ Pharmacists
PharmaCann.nz can help you quickly and easily order, receive and dispense cannabis-based medicines that meet applicable regulations and standards for New Zealand.
PharmaCann.nz is an online ordering, tracking and regulatory compliance platform that enables pharmacists to locate and assess pharmaceutical-grade Cannabis-Based Medicines, while fulfilling all legal & regulatory obligations required in New Zealand.
Cannabis-Based Medicines are legally available in New Zealand under certain circumstances. However it is a complex and time consuming process for pharmacists. You must locate and assess a multitude of products available around the world, navigate New Zealand's myriad laws, regulations, import regulations, storage and delivery requirements, and safety policies, before filling out pages of paperwork, and keeping up with on-going reporting requirements post-dispensing.
These requirements present significant barriers to pharmacists dispensing to patients in New Zealand. The PharmaCann.nz platform makes access to Cannabis-Based Medicines easier, quicker and cheaper.

Can I return purchases?
No, once dispensed cannabis-based medicines cannot be returned. However many will be available in different pack sizes so they can be trialled without needing to import bulk amounts.
What’s the minimum order amount?
That depends on the product. Pack sizes are set by the manufacturer. Most products will be available in monthly or three-monthly supplies. See our product pages or contact us for more information.
