Welcome to the Cannabis Clinic

We exist to empower all New Zealanders to achieve better health and wellness through medicinal cannabis.

For many of our patients, this may be the first time they have even discussed using medicinal cannabis. We will walk every step of the journey with you from consulting, providing you with suitable products, following up, keeping in regular contact, and sharing stories.

Founded in 2018,  we have consulted with hundreds of people across the country – from children to palliative care patients. Our team consists of friendly and experienced doctors and administration staff to ensure you get the best care possible at the most affordable price.

We are the experts in medicinal cannabis in Aotearoa and we look forward to being able to help you on your journey to a better life.

“I just want to thank you all for your expertise and efficiency. The CBD oil arrived yesterday afternoon and I have had my first dose already.
I am very grateful for how easy the whole process has been. While it has taken me a long time to decide to try CBD, thanks to all of you it has made the final decision so much more worthwhile.
While I am going into the next few weeks with my eyes wide open, I look forward to coming back to you with some positive results.”

“I have been practising medicine for the past 7 years and completed my training at Otago. I am a believer in using natural products, mindfulness and the power of a healthy lifestyle. When not consulting here, I am busy with my wife and 2 young boys or enjoying a good workout”

“I graduated from Auckland Medical School in 1989 & have worked as a general practitioner for over 25 years. Over my working life I have developed a deep interest in our natural healing abilities & how these can be supported and enhanced. I sincerely believe that Medicinal Cannabis has a significant role to play in helping people with chronic health conditions. I’m excited to be working with this amazing plant that has the potential to help us find balance & support holistic healing.”

Doctor | Pain Specialist & Anaesthetist

“I graduated from Auckland Medical School in 1998 and became a fellow of the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists in 2006. I have practiced anaesthesia for over 20 years. I became interested in Medicinal Cannabis after witnessing how it has helped many people with chronic health conditions. When I’m not practicing medicine, I enjoy spending time with my two boys and practicing the ancient arts of yoga and meditation.”

Lisa Peterson | B.URP, DIP.BA

Clinic Director

“My own natural health journey began in 2014 after I was diagnosed with the auto-immune condition ‘pernicious anemia’. After deciding town planning wasn’t for me, my passion for the last 10 or so years has been helping New Zealand small businesses grow via digital marketing. In my spare time I enjoy good coffee, reading books, and binge-watching TV.”

With a background in fitness and a passion for plant based eating, I have had the opportunity to work and learn from many amazing people. I love spending time outside, being active, creating delicious meals and raw treats, and enjoying time with my four adult kids.”
