Carly is a former Lecturer in the Arts who has a creative background that includes exhibiting at the Tate and the Saatchi gallery. 


After having to give up her role due to health problems, she discovered that Medical Cannabis was not only appropriate, but a far more effective substitute for Opioids to treat her Fibromyalgia and post-stroke Neuropathy. 


She now advocates for patient access to Medical Cannabis as a Trustee of United Patients Alliance. 


Carly was the first person in the UK to receive a prescription for herbal Cannabis privately since the law change in 2018. She is working tirelessly with government organisations in order to convert this to an NHS prescription, with the hope of setting precedent for other patients to follow. 


She is involved in many projects that seek to establish wider access to Medical Cannabis in the UK, most recently launching Carly’s Amnesty, which seeks to provide exemption from prosecution for patients to grow their own medicine.

Carly is also a contributing member and advisor to the newly established Global Medical Cannabis Council.
