Cannabis Consultant, Addiction Specialist, and General Practitioner at CANNABIS CARE Clinic and Addiction Treatment Services

In 2018, Graham opened the first medical cannabis service in Aotearoa NZ. His Cannabis Care Clinic provides specialist consultations for legal medicinal cannabis prescriptions. Addressing problems including chronic pain, cancer symptoms, anxiety, chronic insomnia and neurological conditions, Graham has helped patients who have experienced little benefit or adverse effects from conventional treatment or have been told there are no further treatments. Many report that medicinal cannabis offers symptom relief, improved quality of life and most importantly, restores hope. He has prescribed CBD to 1500 patients with very good outcomes.

He was appointed to the Australian National Health and Medical Research Council for assessment of medicinal cannabis research projects in 2021. His part time general practice experience dates from 1983. Much of this work involves assessing and managing addictions and/or chronic pain. He is a FRNZCGP. Graham completed his Fellowship of the Australasian Chapter of Addiction Medicine (FAChAM) in 2008. As an Addiction Specialist he manages problems such as alcohol and drug withdrawal, opioid substitution treatment, medication for chronic pain and he writes addiction assessments.
