Dr Jarred Pezzullo then Co-Founded Chronic Doctors after developing a special interest in medical cannabis therapies inspired by the changes happening in the Canadian medical cannabis space.
“I remember hearing a few patients asking about medical cannabis during consultations and I thought to myself, ‘Why is Australia so far behind in the Medical Cannabis health space’”
His passion for developing long term relationships and connections with patients out side of traditional medicine inspired him to take a course in prescribing medical cannabis.
“After seeing my long term patients have great results with medical cannabis after trying countless other therapies I was inspired to help increase access and awareness for others.”
Dr Jarred hopes that through ongoing research and experience more Australian’s suffering from chronic conditions will have access to alternative therapies like Medical Cannabis.
