TORONTO, Aug. 20, 2019 /CNW/ - We are pleased to announce that CannaMed Clinic, an interdisciplinary medical cannabis clinic has been acquired by Natural Care. This merger will introduce current CannaMed patients to the enhanced free services offered to all existing and future Natural Care patients.
Natural Care's no-cost services include:
- Online (telemedicine) prescription and follow-up visits with a doctor or nurse practitioner
- Telephone and email medical cannabis counselling with a registered nurse
- Personalized medical cannabis plans and regular follow-ups
- Registration with LPs and call centre support
- Continued in-person prescription visits at CannaMed Clinic locations
Both Natural Care and CannaMed are patient-focused companies providing guidance and support to help Canadians improve their quality of life with cannabinoid therapy.
"We're excited to welcome CannaMed's operations team to the Natural Care family," says Natural Care CEO David Cutler. "They bring a wealth of experience in medical cannabis and patient care; and adding their services and physical clinic location to our enhanced medical cannabis offerings was a natural fit. CannaMed's existing patients can rest assured that in addition to the care and customer service they've grown accustomed to, they will now be able to call our team of registered nurses for personalized medical cannabis advice."
"We are thrilled to join forces with Natural Care to improve the quality and access to care for our existing and future patients, particularly older adults who may be trying cannabis for the first time," says CannaMed Medical Director, Dr. Steven Orlov. "Though the clinical evidence for medical cannabis is still emerging, it's relative safety is well established. I think the greatest benefits for cannabis will come from significantly reducing the use of more harmful prescription medications, including opiates, anxiety medications and sleeping pills."
