We noticed this post today on our Linked in feed.
The line “Evidence Based Science Opens Pharmacy Door For Hemp Oz” had us vaguely intrigued mainly because it is one of those marketing lines that implies everything and nothing at the same time
As far as we understand in Australia no CBD products can be sold over the counter so what products are they selling and what are they supposed to do? The implication appears to be health benefits of one sort or another
Here are Oz Medicann Group..
This is what they say they do.
We note all the standard buzzwords “unique” “holistic” “therapeutic” and apparently they are for patients before profits…

They are headquartered at Lvl 9 16 O’Connell Street Sydney, Australia 2000 , which for those of you who don’t know Sydney is a pretty posh downtown address.
They note on their website that they work with the following “partners”
Our current relationships and partnerships include:
- National Institute for Complementary Medicine
- University of Western Sydney
- University of Sydney
- University of New England
- The Lambert Institute
- Paramedical Services
And a range of cultivators and distributors.
A search around the site reveals the only product line we can find .. a fizzy drink
We pop over to https://hempoz.com.au/. and it’s all as clear as mud.
They are selling hemp Kombucha , protein powder & hemp oil. None of this is rocket science or new
Now that the TGA has approved (sort of) 0% thc hemp based products to be sold over the counter in Australian pharmacies you’ll start to see a great deal of this type of nutraceutical marketing where overpriced products (12 bottles of hemp infused spring water for $AUS42 …seriously!) are marketed to the consumer with vague health benefits never really defined.
We say ……Don’t be like Pickles the fleeced sheep.
