Releaf Opens New Facility in Fortitude Valley

After expanding in Queensland in late 2021, Releaf, the first dedicated facility of its kind in Australia, has opened a new outlet in Fortitude Valley. 

Releaf Group Founder and CEO Gary Mackenzie said that thousands of Queenslanders are looking for a multi-disciplinary approach to healthcare and they are glad to be in the position to provide a new clinic and dispensary as an option. 

Releaf also provides a telehealth or video chat system for patients who prefer not to go to the Fortitude Valley clinic.

Meanwhile, Mackenzie wants to establish Releaf as a one-stop shop, providing end-to-end service to the patients from consultations and health assessments, prescribing the treatment, and offering the treatment at their store. 

The company first launched in Victoria in 2017 and has opened clinics in the Sunshine Coast, Noosa Heads, and Caloundra via franchisees. Soon, Releaf will open a medical cannabis compounding pharmacy in Fortitude Valley.

In Queensland, medicinal cannabis is classified as either Schedule 3, Schedule 4, or Schedule 8 controlled substances. Its use must be prescribed by licensed doctors, particularly for Schedule 4 – cannabidiol (CBD) and Schedule 8 – tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) or tetrahydrocannabinol: cannabidiol (THC:CBD) products. However, it is illegal to drive with any amount of THC in one’s system even if this has been prescribed.
