Medicinal Cannabis Education Designed By A Doctor
Dr Teresa Towpik
Dr Towpik has been a General Practitioner in Australia since 1993 and an advocate of medicinal cannabis since the law was amended and cannabis was legalised for medicinal use. Since then she has been studying the therapeutic properties of cannabis, how it works in the human body and the potential applications in General Practice, especially in the management of chronic debilitating pain.
We are now experiencing a global cannabis phenomenon, it is widely accepted by the general public and there is a growing need for Doctors to be able to provide the necessary information to safety prescribe medicinal cannabis.
In 2016, Dr Towpik founded MediHuanna, an organisation that provides science-based medicinal cannabis education for Health Professionals. Dr Towpik sees cannabis as a therapeutic agent that has huge potential in General Practice. Her goal is to change the stigma of cannabis through education, enabling it to be seen as an important medicine that should be integrated into modern medicine.
