Adulteration

Do not adulterate the formulated medicine or any of its ingredients with undeclared substances. Tobacco, calamus and synthetic cannabinoids are notable examples of adulterants (section 11 of TGO 93).

The motivation for adulterating a product is irrelevant-the presence of any substance extraneous to the formulation (such as undeclared substances) - will be considered to amount to adulteration for the purposes of TGO 93.

'Incidental minor excipients' are not considered adulterants. These are defined in section 4 of TGO 93 as:

  • an excipient or processing aid in the manufacture of ingredients for medicinal cannabis products

OR

  • a processing aid in the manufacture of medicinal cannabis products
