    I was wondering if anyone has read SCIA’s article on medicinal cannabis in the latest issue of Accord – Winter 2019. You would have received Accord in the mail or you can grab the online version from our website – see the link to Accord magazine under Resources. The article talks about the current situation in Australia and is well worth a read (if I do say so myself). I would be interested if anyone has had experience of treating their pain or spasticity with medicinal cannabis and would be willing to share with the forum as it is a very interesting topic. As I said in the article you do have to jump through a few hoops to get it prescribed but for the people who do get it, there are some good results being reported. Also you might want to read up on the issue – our Resource Library has some research articles, articles from SCI organisations in Canada and the US and some links to Australian clinics so check them out  – see the link to “medicinal cannabis”.

    People might be interested in contributing to a survey the University of Sydney is running called CAMS20. CAMS20 is an online survey of Australian medicinal cannabis use over the past 12 months. The study, which runs every two years, surveys Australians who have used medicinal cannabis in the past 12 months and provides a snapshot of patterns of use, symptoms and conditions treated, methods of administration, where it is being sourced from, and effects on health and driving. A link to the survey is on this page:
