Green Medicine is a new documentary film that gives an insight into the medical cannabis scene in Chile. It follows the story of Daya Foundation, a non-profit organisation, that was granted a licence by the Chilean government to begin Latin America's first legal cannabis grow in 2014.
Does cannabis make a difference to the quality of life of medical patients suffering from a range of illnesses, including epilepsy and cancer?
The documentary team behind Green Medicine: Chile's medical cannabis Revolution spent 6 months following the progress of the medical marihuana debate in the country. The film features numerous interviews and highlights the arguments for and against the legalization of cannabis, for use by medical patients.
Interviews include politicians and members of the Chilean Congress, scientists involved in the research and testing of cannabis extracts for medical use, the founders and growers of the Daya Foundation and the medical patients for whom cannabis has transformed life.
The film was made by Geek Media, directed by Diego Estay and produced by Paradise Seeds.
