OTTAWA, Nov. 17, 2017 /CNW/ - National Access Cannabis Corp.

"NAC is committed to delivering secure, safe, and responsible access to legal cannabis and we're pleased to expand our trusted clinic model to the residents of Edmonton," said Mark Goliger, Chief Executive Officer of National Access Cannabis. "With traffic volumes of greater than 40,000 vehicles a day, our new Whyte Avenue location represents a prime location for a medical cannabis clinic as well as for a future, legal, licensed, retail dispensary under the proposed Alberta framework. Growing beyond our existing four care clinics in Calgary and providing Albertans with improved access to physicians and education through additional regional facilities across Alberta reflects our commitment to be the leader in Alberta's evolving medical and recreational cannabis market."
The new clinic includes approximately 2,100 square feet of space designated to the consultation of patients receiving or inquiring about cannabinoid therapy. National Access Cannabis' cannabinoid specialists will consult with patients exploring the options available through health Canada approved licensed producers. Clinical staff work in tandem with physicians to provide safe and effective medical cannabis protocols.
