Medicinal Cannabis
Chronic pain management and navigating the prescription maze

with Justin Sinclair


There are numerous causes of chronic, intractable pain and a number of pharmaceutical agents on offer as treatment. But growing evidence supports the use of medicinal cannabis for pain, with reported fewer side effects than other more conventional drugs. Pharmaceutical cannabis comes in the form of oils, tinctures and other extracts and medical practitioners are now able to access these preparations for their patients.


ACNEM is offering you the opportunity to hear from an expert about the use of medicinal cannabis for the treatment of pain and how to navigate the number of legislative and regulatory checks in place across Australia's states and territories.
