While this is a contentious issue across the country, many people suffering from health issues are singing the praises of medicinal cannabis.
Northern Rivers general practitioner Dr Jamie Rickcord will deliver insights into his personal experience prescribing medicinal cannabis to local residents managing chronic health conditions.
The webinar will seek to provide further information on the biological effects of taking medicinal cannabis, demystify the distinction between THC and CBD, explain how medicinal cannabis is produced and how it should be applied, as well as offer some patient case studies.
Local registered healthcare professionals are invited to attend the presentation and interact via the Q&A function.
Dr Rickcord has practiced medicine since graduating from Imperial College, London in 2006 and for the last eight years he has worked as a GP in the Northern Rivers, at ANANDA clinics in Byron Bay.
He has seen the positive effect first-hand of medicinal cannabis and is pleased with the results in his patients.
Dr Rickcord is an advocate of educating other health professionals about integrative plant medicine and is also accepting medicinal cannabis referrals for a number of conditions that have been approved for treatment by Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).
The webinar will also feature Barb Fullerton, the national education manager of Little Green Pharma, Australia’s first producer and grower of medicinal cannabis.
Dr Rickcord’s webinar Prescribing medicinal cannabis in the Northern Rivers region will be held online from 6pm on Tuesday, 7 July.
