The Global QUEST Initiative
The QUality of life Evaluation STudy (QUEST Initiative), is being conducted by researchers at Curtin University, and aims to be the world’s largest longitudinal clinical study investigating the quality of life and health economic impact of medicinal cannabis on patients with chronic disease.
Patients accessing medicinal cannabis generally have a range of conditions and symptoms that impact their quality of life. This clinical study set out to better understand and measure how these conditions and symptoms affect patients’ quality of life over time while they are accessing medicinal cannabis as a treatment option.
Recruitment for The QUEST Initiative is now open.

Curtin University Obesity Study
Little Green Pharma and Australian based Curtin University have joined forces to explore the use of medicinal cannabis treatment options for obesity and related health issues.
The research, led by Professor Marco Falasca from Curtin’s Medical School, will aim to identify one or more combinations of cannabinoids that may produce effects in the gastrointestinal tract to induce a feeling of fullness and a decrease in appetite, potentially leading to weight loss and even diabetes reversion.
