Overview of Aleafia
Aleafia Health Inc. operates the Aleafia Total Health Network (the "Aleafia Network") in Vaughan, Ontario. Aleafia Health seeks to make a difference in cannabinoid therapy delivery by providing an interconnected medical service model.

The intent is to manage health through a patient focused, assessment based, and interdisciplinary resourced organization.
Aleafia Health also now wholly owns and operates Cannabinoid Medical Clinics, or CMClinics, Canada's largest physician led referral-only clinics for medical cannabis. Established in 2014, Aleafia Helath now has 23 clinics across Canada, with additional locations planned to open in 2018. Aleafia Health operates referral-only medical clinics dedicated to evaluating the suitability of prescribing, and monitoring cannabinoid treatments for patients suffering from chronic pain and disabling illnesses. Clinics operated by Aleafia Health are staffed by physicians and qualified health care practitioners specifically trained to assess patient suitability for cannabinoid treatment, recommend treatment regimes, and monitor treatment progress.
Aleafia Inc., owns 100% of Aleafia Farms Inc., a licensed producer under the Health Canada Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR), as well as the land and building in Scugog, Ontario, where the facility operates.
