Medicinal Cannabis for Doctors

Education portal for prescribers

Cannasouth is supporting healthcare providers by building an education portal for specialists, doctors and clinicians.

The Cannasouth Clinical Fact Finder™ is where you can quickly and easily find clinical evidence on the use of medicinal cannabis. You can search and find clinical papers on the most common symptoms for which medicinal cannabis is used. There are also reviews undertaken by Heath Agencies around the world on medicinal cannabis and its use in clinical practice.

Enabling an opportunity for clinicians to increase their understanding of the ECS and how the endocannabinoid systems functionality is able to be supported by phytocannabinoids facilitating health and wellbeing assistance for patients.
