It’s a privilege to announce the return of CanCard to Paradise Gardens for our second edition!
CanCard will be hosting hangouts and Q&A sessions all weekend long. This is an EXTREMELY rare chance to meet Carly and the team in person! 🤯
Carly (the creator of Cancard, in image 2) was the first person in the UK to receive a medicinal cannabis prescription. After having to give up her role as a university lecturer due to health problems she discovered that medicinal cannabis was not only an appropriate, but a more effective substitute for opioids to treat her fibromyalgia and post-stroke neuropathy.
She is involved in many projects that seek to establish wider access to medical cannabis in the UK, most notably launching Carly’s Amnesty which set the stage for Cancard, a collaborative project that has seen her connect high-level police forces, doctors, patients, and MPs on a scheme that reduces the fear 1.1 million cannabis consumers may have around interactions with the police.
