‘He has already made quite a name for himself on the north coast with his interest in developmental trauma and helping people move into recovery.

‘He is an authorised prescriber of medicinal cannabis and uses cannabinoid medicines frequently in his practice.

‘With him is Dr John Teh, founder of Brisbane’s PlantMed medical cannabis clinic.

‘He has been working within the industry since the legalisation of cannabis for medicinal use in Australia in 2016.
