For patients visiting participating medical clinics or related facilities, Cannvas offers a low-cost, application-specific handheld device that provides access to the benefits of health and wellness through cannabis and information specific to their needs.
Access to trusted information is important for both the patient and the prescribing medical professional. Due to the lack of available information, medical professionals have been reluctant to prescribe cannabis in its many forms. Providing information at the source of treatment gives patients peace of mind by exploring all alternatives, and doctors confidence to write suitable prescriptions for specific ailments.
