Dr Teresa Towpik
FOUNDER & CHIEF MEDICAL OFFICER
Dr Towpik has been a General Practitioner in Australia since 1993 and an advocate of medicinal cannabis since the law was amended and cannabis was legalised for medicinal use. Since then she has been studying the therapeutic properties of cannabis, how it works in the human body and the potential applications in General Practice, especially in the management of chronic debilitating pain.
In 2016, Dr Towpik founded MediHuanna, an organisation that provides science-based medicinal cannabis education for Health Professionals. Dr Towpik sees cannabis as a therapeutic agent that has huge potential in General Practice. Her goal is to change the stigma of cannabis through education, enabling it to be seen as an important medicine that should be integrated into modern medicine.

An innovator in physician education, Pavel has worked with the RACGP team to develop professional medicinal cannabis education that has received accreditation in the QI&CPD program. Cannabis is not just one plant medicine but hundreds of medicines in one plant, it is not a panacea for every illness but rather a medicine that needs to be integrated into modern medicine. In response to a need for medical training, he has developed an educational curriculum that provides physicians with the necessary skills to safely prescribe cannabis in a clinical setting.
