Kiwi patients can now access THC-based medicines made in Aotearoa.

Medicinal cannabis company Helius Therapeutics on Thursday launched two THC medicines - having brought several CBD products to market already.

THC is the main compound in cannabis that gives users a psychoactive effect or "high" but it also provides strong pain relief.

Medical cannabis products must meet Good Manufacturing Practice certification before they’re allowed to be sold in New Zealand.
