United in Compassion

About Us

Our philosophy is the dignified alleviation of suffering with compassion & empathy according to ‘Dan’s Test’.

Our primary mission is advocating for patient access to Full Spectrum herbal Medicinal Cannabis extracts and dried herb Cannabis
in a manner which is safe, effective, affordable, equitable and favorable for patients, for the dignified relief of suffering.

United in Compassion is Australia’s Peak Medicinal Cannabis advocacy body which helped bring about the 2016 legislative changes that made cultivation of the plant for medical and research purposes possible.

Founded in 2014 by Lucy Haslam and her late son Dan, UIC’s main functions since then have been to promote education and knowledge around clinical uses of cannabis as well campaigning for improved patient access to what, for many, can be a life-saving medicine. This is in light of the fact that the 2016 Amendments to the Narcotic Drugs Act have failed and are failing to deliver on the promise to deliver affordable cannabis products for sick Australians who need them.

Our philosophy is the dignified alleviation of suffering with compassion and empathy according to ‘Dan’s Test.’

Our primary mission is advocating for patient access to Full Spectrum herbal Medicinal Cannabis extracts and dried herb cannabis in a manner which is safe, effective, affordable, equitable and favourable to patients. 

Dan’s test sets expectations of high quality products that are legally and easily accessible with no patient left behind.

Such products should be:

  • Equitably and favourably accessible to patients;
  • Naturally outdoor/greenhouse grown herbal Medicinal Cannabis;
  • Cultivated using organic principles;
  • Available in of a wide range of varieties (chemovars) to treat an equally wide range of health conditions;
  • Manufactured with Full Spectrum plant extraction processes;
  • Dried Herb (cannabis floral clusters) for use in electric personal vaporisation devices;
  • Of high standards of production & manufacturing, by employing relevant of Quality Assurance practices.

Dan Haslam was instrumental in bringing the issue of the therapeutic use of herbal Medicinal Cannabis to the forefront and into the national Australian consciousness. He benefited dramatically from his use of local Australian grown herbal medicinal varieties of cannabis during his battle with cancer.

Though he passed away on the 24th of February 2015, his legacy lives on.

‘Every step we take on Medical Cannabis, will be built on the footsteps Dan Haslam left behind.’
