Meet the doctor

Dr Joel Wren is a General Practitioner and highly experienced Authorised Prescriber based in Adelaide, South Australia.

Dr 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. Dr Joel is one of the industry's pioneering medicinal cannabis practitioners with 5+ years of experience prescribing and working with patients in the field.

Dr 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 MC from archaic classifications. He has since become the President of the Australian Chapter.  

When Dr 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.

I decided on Dr Joel Wren to help me with my severe pain and couldn't be happier.I had been dealing with severe pain for over 20 years and have been unable to find something that actually worked. I highly recommend this medical group, as everyone from the doctors and nurses, to the receptionists who deal with your problems and enquiries - are all lovely people who care and listen to you and do what they can to help you find the best solutions to your medical needs.
