That’s why it is hard to find information online.
Stopping at the right dose when it starts to work is the key. The last thing you want to be doing is using a high dose (at a higher cost), when a smaller dose would be giving you the benefit you need.
2500mg: $190 – $250
We have had some success in helping our patients get additional financial support from WINZ via a disability allowance to support the ongoing cost of their medicinal cannabis use. While the result is dependent on your case manager and specific situation, it is possible.
Yes, please visit The Dispensary and register to learn more about CBD products available and their cost to purchase.
This is why it is crucial you are using medicinal cannabis and CBD oil prescribed by registered doctors and not buying it online – we know there are many unreliable and illegal products advertised for sale in NZ.

Lastly, and perhaps the most obvious, factor affecting the price of CBD oil is discounts or coupons that may lower the overall cost of an order. Many of the CBD brands listed above offer first-time buyer discounts, as well as subscription or bundle-and-save options that can cut the price of CBD oil significantly.

While products with higher strengths or concentrations of CBD are more expensive, they also have better value. This is because they have a lower cost per mg of CBD. Similar to buying toilet paper in bulk to save money, you can save money in the long run if you opt for a strong CBD oil that will last for a longer period of time than less potent options.
To simplify this process, Ashley Jordan Ferira, PhD, RDN, Senior Editor of Health & Wellness Strategy at Remedy Review, a CBD reviews site, compared the prices of popular CBD oil brands on the market—including Medterra, cbdMD, and Naternal—to pinpoint the average cost of CBD oil.
This THC-free CBD oil tincture from Medterra provides 100 mg of CBD in each 1 ml serving.
At the end of the day, it’s the cost of the therapeutic ingredient that matters, not the eye-catching fancy brand. By breaking down the cost of cannabinoid per mL, it can be easier to figure out how much you’re paying for a therapeutic dose, rather than by the quantity of liquid.
Essentially, store-bought and pharmaceutical CBD should be the same, that is to say, the cannabinoid constituent has the same structure. However, the degree to which over-the-counter CBD products are tested for quantity of therapeutic ingredients and adulteration is rarely to the standard of prescription-only CBD. Additionally, pharmaceutical-grade cannabis products are grown and manufactured to a set of clinically defined standards that assure their quality, consistency and lack of contamination.
Cost of cannabis prescriptions in Australia have also steadily declined since the advent of their medical cannabis system. A decline of nearly 20% has been seen in Aussie prices since the middle of 2019. This pattern of prices declining as the Australian medical cannabis industry developed, bodes well for costs to UK patients in the future.
What to consider in your store-bought CBD product?
In the UK a GMC-registered specialist doctor’s prescription is required to receive medical cannabis, and this can include prescriptions of THC-only, CBD-only and products that include a range of cannabinoids. Over-the-counter CBD products can be bought in-store or online, do not (or should not) include THC and are not subject to the rigorous testing protocols medicinal products are.
Labelling can be confusing at the best of times. Just like comprehending nutritional panels is an art of discernment, so too is understanding the range of ways cannabinoid content is expressed on the bottle.
So, average UK product prices are more expensive, but have recently become more reasonable comparable to our Commonwealth cousin. Fortunately for Australian patients, access has gotten much easier in the past 2 years with regulatory changes facilitating speedier and less burdensome pathways to access for both patients and prescribers.
Taking all this into account, the average cost of medical cannabis prescriptions in the UK sits at around £150-£250 per month for a THC and CBD inclusive prescription. At Cannabis Access Clinics UK , we have observed that an initial CBD-only prescription will typically cost patients an average £100-£150 per month. Once again this is all dose-dependent, some conditions like severe epileptic disorders require much higher doses.
