Resources: https://www.goodfellowunit.org/node/344389

The passing of the Misuse of Drugs (Medicinal Cannabis) Amendment Act means some products containing cannabidiol (CBD) are now prescription medicines and there is currently a limited range of CBD products available in New Zealand.

Graham Gulbransen is a fellow of the RNZCGP and Australasian Chapter of Addiction Medicine and has had extensive experience managing problems such as addiction assessment, managing alcohol and drug withdrawal, opioid substitution treatment and medication for chronic pain. He is a medically trained Cannabis Consultant, General Practitioner and Addiction Specialist providing specialist consultations for legal medicinal cannabis prescriptions.

In this webinar Graham will discuss his experience of prescribing medicinal cannabis for chronic pain, emotional distress, neurological or cancer symptoms.
