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.

Mike has a brain tumour. It’s the sort of tumour that won’t kill him, but it will rob him of his sight.
With the current stagnation of Medicinal Cannabis prescription in Australia, Mike sets off on a road trip of discovery. To find out if Medicinal Cannabis will reduce his tumour and help regain his eyesight.
Travelling from Tamworth in the New England region of NSW, Mike’s journey takes him to The Gold Coast, Nimbin, Newcastle, Adelaide, Melbourne, Canberra, Uluru, Townsville and Sydney in search of answers.
