Australian data suggests medicinal cannabis is safe and effective for pain, sleep and well-being. 

One of the largest and longest studies of medicinal cannabis being taken in a real-world setting has found that the drug is safe, well-tolerated and helpful for users. 

The study looked at around 4,000 Australians with a wide range of ages, and conditions, who were taking medicinal cannabis over 2 years. 

It showed significant improvements for pain severity, mental health, insomnia, physical function, and emotional well-being and the improvements were sustained for over two years.
