“Growing From Grief” with Phoebe Macleod

View descriptionShare

Heyday Medical is a GP clinic with a difference.

Its six doctors and nursing team focus on providing holistic care and consults for natural therapies to over 4,500 patients and counting.

Heyday Medical also has a range of sustainably grown, Australian cannabis medicines (Including flower, oils, gummies and more). It began as a start-up between two siblings. Dr. Jim Connell, a practicing GP and his sister Phoebe Macleod an Intellectual Property Lawyer, who was 3 months into her maternity leave with her new baby, when their mum was diagnosed with late-stage pancreatic cancer, and their world was turned upside down.

Watching the devastating pain their mother was enduring from cancer, Phoebe and Jim came together to combine their career knowledge to create and provide comfort for their mother’s symptoms and pain management before her passing.

Together they committed to developing unique and medically focused cannabis medicines and in-turn creating their start up - ‘Heyday’, a namesake of the Art Gallery their mum, Helen, owned in her 20’s in Prahran, Melbourne.
Prescription medicinal marijuana has been approved and legally accessible In Australia since 2017, but still hasn’t become a part of the standard medical ‘go-to’ tool kit for regular GP’s and specialists, although showing astounding results in chronic pain, anxiety, insomnia and so much more.

So we speak with Phoebe to understand what it’s been like to create a family business from collective pain and turn their trauma into treatment for others.
