With key insight into patients and their needs, Hannah strives to ensure the patient is at the centre of the conversation in this developing sector. ​

Businesses & individuals come to Maple Tree when they’re looking for clarity, when they’re wrapped up in red tape and when they want to give their business the best opportunity for success.

MedCan Family Foundation

MedCan Family Foundation provides free resources and educational material on medical cannabis, the endocannabinoid system and the positive outcomes cannabis-treatment has had on so many people throughout the UK.


CEO Matt Hughes and Hannah, Chair, set up the MedCan Family Foundation to provide a central forum to educate and inform parents, carers and families about medical cannabis so they could work with their doctors to make informed decisions on their loved ones' care.


By providing a safe space for everyone to ask questions about medical cannabis, the MedCan Family Foundation can begin to improve confidence and advocate for their children or family members healthcare needs.
