Personal Statement

Dr Joel Wren

Dr Joel Wren is a GP and cannabis clinician working in Adelaide, South Australia.

Joel has long been fascinated with plant-based pharmaceuticals, growing to appreciate the potential of our natural world. Seeing his patients' hunger for natural medicines prompted him to learn more about holistic health, taking into consideration every aspect of a patient's health journey including social, mental, physical, and nutritional health.

Joel was chosen to present to the United Nations Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) on behalf of the Society of Cannabis Clinicians to discuss the rescheduling of cannabis from archaic classifications. He has since become the Vice-President of the Australian Chapter.

When Joel isn’t working, he’s looking after his 3 dogs and advocating for animal wellbeing, understanding that their journey can be as important and complicated as our own.
