About Us
The Clinic

Founded in 2018, Cannabis Access Clinics is Australia's first specialist medicinal cannabis clinical practice. Our goal is to help quickly and efficiently assess the suitability of patients for access to medicinal cannabis under Australian federal and state regulatory frameworks, and support the application process for suitable patients.

Dr Gull Herzberg
Bsc(Hons), MBBS, FRACGP
Gull is a GP who has been working as an Integrative Medical Practitioner for over 15 years. He has always been keen to explore investigative and therapeutic avenues complementary to those regularly used by his medical colleagues. This has led him to include Tick Borne Disease, Biobalance and Gut Biome paradigms into his work, to name a few. His focus on the needs of the people who consult with him has always been paramount. In the past few years, medical cannabis has, of course, been making its way to the forefront of possible treatment options, in particular for those with chronic and complex illnesses, with symptoms which have not been effectively managed through a conventional medical approach. He is exasperated by the technical and bureaucratic hurdles involved in legally accessing medical cannabis in Australia. Gull gained his Bachelor of Science with honours at the University of Western Australia, and his medical degree At the University of Sydney. He is a fellow of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners. He has lived in many countries, has worked in a wide variety of occupations and counts himself a very lucky man.
