TORONTO, Dec. 13, 2018 /CNW/ - Cannvas MedTech Inc. ("Cannvas" or the "Company") (CSE: MTEC) (Frankfurt: 3CM), a leading digital cannabis education and business technology company in the cannabis space, is pleased to announce its online learning platform Cannvas.Me will be featured in an upcoming installment of Canadian Health and Family.
"Presenting our Cannvas.Me platform on this popular health and wellness program is a strong opportunity to share our free and unbiased digital cannabis education resource to a wide swath of Canadians who may be curious about using cannabis as an alternative therapeutic treatment," said Shawn Moniz, Chief Executive Officer, Cannvas MedTech Inc. "Canadian Health and Family enjoys an engaged following both online and on television, reaching beyond its viewership to contribute to conversations by family physicians and general practitioners throughout Canada, and affecting advocacy groups and resource organizations such as the Chronic Pain Association of Canada. As cannabis becomes a more prevalent part of people's health care regimen, it's imperative Canadians know where to turn for accessible and reliable physician-backed cannabis information and education."
The program makes note of the independent Medical Advisory Board and Educational Advisory Panel who steer content for Cannvas.Me and pays special attention to the platform's global reach, from its founders' travels across the world to determine how best to approach cannabis education to the site's scalability across different countries as cannabis legislation around the world continues to evolve. Additionally, there is also focus on the forthcoming Cannvas.Pet platform, designed to help pet owners explore the use of medical cannabis to help treat their pet's ailments.
"A crucial aspect of cannabis legalization that has been overlooked since its October inception is access to free and unbiased education around the plant and an opportunity for Canadians to learn for themselves whether or not it can be a beneficial part of their lifestyle," said Daniel Davidzon, Director of Strategy and Education, Cannvas MedTech Inc. "We strive to elevate cannabis learning and open the public's eyes to the myriad health care benefits the plant offers, better contextualizing its place in our culture and delivering evidence-backed education from a team of certified health practitioners and educators."
