Conversing With the Co-Founders of Canwell and Elevated Extracts | Friendly Aussie Podcast S2E10

Well, it’s been nearly 9 months… but the Friendly Aussie Podcast is finally BACK!

To commemorate this exciting occasion, the folks at FAB sat down for an in-depth discussion and interview with David Madigan and Neil Helsby – the co-founders of medicinal cannabis clinic Canwell and cannabis oil company Elevated Extracts.

A Dynamic Duo

As insiders of the burgeoning Australian cannabis industry, David and Neil both have unique backstories. With David coming from the world of events and marketing – having once worked for Red Bull – and Neil working for years at Queensland Health, the two couldn’t come from more different industries.

Yet, that basic fact hasn’t stopped them from coming together to achieve remarkable successes in the field of treating regular people with medical cannabis – if anything, it’s allowed them to apply their respective strengths on a project much bigger than them as individuals.

After being profoundly inspired by the beginnings of legalisation in the United States, the two friends and business partners have taken it on as their mission to contribute to the fledgling Australian medical cannabis industry with high quality, accessible products and services.

They pounced at the opportunity to get involved in something they both loved – bud – at the instant it was legalised medicinally… and they haven’t looked back since. With David’s expertise in communications and Neil’s specialisation in the nitty-gritty details of healthcare, the peculiar pair have proven to be highly complementary, which has helped them to build two amazing businesses that regularly change the lives of their patients.

Their M.O. is simple – make cannabis accessible to as many people who need it as possible. This is why they set out to construct a crack team of doctors, nurses and specialists – to make that aim a reality.

We were completely captivated in our chat with these guys – it’s so interesting to hear the perspective of people who are working on the ground to make a real positive difference to the lives of so many patients. We hope you have as much fun listening as we did yarning with these two standout blokes!
