From seed capital to hemp growth. Medicann provides science-backed, reliable and affordable cannabis medicines to patients in need.
2016 was a big year for cannabis. And we’re not just talking smoke but the industry in Australia took a massive step forward when medicinal cannabis products finally became legal. This was the opportunity Matt and the Medicann team were looking for. Their first customers consisted of hemp seed and oil products sold through pharmacies and supermarkets. Today, Matt and the team are crowdfunding on Birchall to keep up with demand.
65% of deaths in Australia right now are from painkillers. Improving the quality of life for people in need. Medicann creates products with fewer side-effects.
