Learn to navigate the Medical Cannabis landscape

The number of medical cannabis patients in Australia is at an inflection point and continues to rise rapidly. This evolution has been driven by patients, with 36% asking their doctor about cannabis therapies. We have created the Cannabis Prescriber Discussions (CPD) virtual roundtable series for doctors, to better understand this new therapy, work together and shape the emerging community. We will launch new sessions every few weeks, featuring a range of expert guest speakers. Hear from Medical Cannabis specialists, as they share their experiences, learnings, and patient case studies, and find out how your patients can benefit from Medical Cannabis.

"The CPD roundtable helped me to understand where medical cannabis fits into our practice."

Dr Anne G. 

"Going in detail through the patient case studies provided me with the confidence to initiate my first patient."

Dr Craig M.

"I realised that I had many misperceptions about Medical Cannabis."

Dr Peter K.
