Agreement Paves Way for Significant Canadian-Australia Medical Cannabis Collaboration
TORONTO and MELBOURNE, Australia, June 27, 2017 /CNW/ - Resolve Digital Health Inc., a cutting edge Canadian developer of Medical Cannabis delivery systems and devices, has formed a joint venture with LeafCann Group, a leader in the production and development of cannabis medications, clinical research and education, based in Melbourne, Australia. This initiative will grant LeafCann Group a license to register and promote Resolve Digital Health's proprietary Breeze Inhaler system in the Australian market. In addition, LeafCann Group and Resolve Digital Health will conduct clinical trials and pilot studies on the device and formulations in Australia.
LeafCann Group will retain an exclusive license to sell and distribute the Breeze device for 3 years, with an option to extend. LeafCann Group will seek import licenses for the Breeze Inhaler and pods for clinical trials and to meet demand from Australia's Special Access Schemes, which allow for limited access to medical devices not yet registered on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods.
Speaking about this new collaboration, Robert Adelson, CEO of Resolve Digital Health Inc., stated, "Whether in Canada or Australia, our number one priority is patient care. Resolve Digital Health is pleased to be working with LeafCann to bring relief to Australians who have been prescribed Medical Cannabis in treatment of their ailment."
The burgeoning global Medical Cannabis industry is estimated to reach $50 billion by 2025. In support of the growth of the industry in both Australia and Canada, LeafCann and Resolve will collaborate on a series of clinical trials that focus upon symptom relief. Around the world, Medical Cannabis is prescribed for a plethora of medical conditions, including chronic pain, arthritis and joint disease, migraine headaches, cancer/chemotherapy, fibromyalgia, MS, and many more.
"This agreement provides high quality Medical Cannabis products and devices to the Australian market, to meet the needs of patients at end of life and those permitted to access Medical Cannabis products under Australia's Special Access Schemes," said LeafCann Group CEO, Dr. Jaroslav Boublik B.Sc.(Hons) Ph.D. (Med), MRACI, C.Chem. AACNEM, MICRS.
