    Who are we?

    Pioneers, ambassadors and stakeholders striving for a common good

    AMCA’s Board and Ambassadors include many of the pioneers of the Australian Medicinal Cannabis space. These pioneers have worked tirelessly to make small but important inroads into what has been a complicated, and often overburdened, regulatory space. 

    AMCA believes firmly that it is essential to have a broad mix of members with a wide set of skills, in order to meet the needs of each facet of the complex medicinal cannabis industry, especially in these early days of industry development.   

    AMCA will provide the formal framework of an association to assist committed individuals and organisations to steer the industry in a positive direction. With a focus on positive problem solving, and by prioritising, planning and targeting our actions, we can multiply the impact and make a difference, together.

    AMCA is a registered not-for-profit organisation that has been endorsed for its charitable status by the Australian Tax Office (effective 16 June 2020).


    Supporting practitioners and patients in understanding Medicinal Cannabis.


    Supporting cultivators and producers of medicines in Australia.
