Hippocratic Growth: Exclusive Interview with Cannabis Access Clinics Director Dr Sanjay Nijhawan | The Green Fund

“Medical marijuana is on the rise in Australia, and the latest figures published by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) show that more than 6,000 patients have been approved for cannabis prescriptions.

But experts estimate that there may still be as many as 100,000 Australian patients treating their symptoms with cannabis that was illegally obtained from the black market.

Clearly, access is still a serious issue, and sometimes it can be impossible for patients to find a doctor who is willing to apply for SAS approval. However, some companies are working to change that.”

“For us now it’s about more than just patient care. It’s also about pursuing research and development. We’re looking to support our patients as a whole category.”

– Medical Director of Cannabis Access Clinics, Dr Sanjay Nijhawan
