Do not adulterate the formulated medicine or any of its ingredients with undeclared substances (section 11 of TGO 93). Tobacco, calamus and synthetic cannabinoids are notable examples of adulterants.
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.
Processing aids used in the manufacture of medicinal cannabis products are not considered adulterants. These are defined in section 4 of TGO 93 as:
a substance used in the manufacture of a medicine that is not intended to remain in the final formulation of the medicine (although trace amounts may remain in the medicine).
