      Why we do it, real people, real stories

      DISCLAIMER: AMCA understands that medicinal cannabis may not be suitable for everyone. The following video stories are only intended to provide examples of cases where medicinal cannabis has shown benefit for specific individuals. You should speak with your doctor (or other health professional) to determine whether medicinal cannabis could be a suitable treatment for you. All medicines, including medicinal cannabis, have risks (e.g. potential interactions with other medicines) as well as benefits that need to be weighed up to establish if the treatment is right for you.
