Dr. Lizzie Shiner | MBChB, MRCGP, DTMH

Clinic: Telehealth


Dr. Lizzie Shiner comes to us from Norwich, England. She studied medicine at the University of Manchester, UK and has been practicing for 14 years.

She first became aware of the positive impacts of medicinal cannabis through her patients’ experiences in pain and anxiety management. Additionally, her background in global health and tropical medicine gave her a deeper understanding of how plant based medicine is used in other cultures.

Dr. Shiner says she became a cannabis doctor to help people access safe medicinal cannabis used alongside—or as an alternative—to traditional pharmacological-based management.

She enjoys her work with cannabis medicine and finds it rewarding to see a person being able to reduce their burden of other medication with a natural product. Any intervention that she can offer that improve quality of life is a highlight to her day.

In her spare time Dr. Shiner enjoys exploring beautiful Aotearoa with her partner in their van and finding a remote beach to walk along, photography, reading and, most importantly, spending time with family and friends.
