Choom (CSE:CHOO) announced the acquisition of Clarity Cannabis Medical Centre and its affiliates operating as Clarity Medical Centres.
As quoted in the press release:
Chris Bogart, president and CEO states, “Our goal is to build a dominant national cannabis retail brand. The acquisition of Clarity Medical Centres allows Choom to service the entire Canadian cannabis market, beyond just the adult use channel. As cannabis becomes more widely accepted as an alternative to pharmaceuticals, increasingly, patients with medical conditions will require professional medical advice on the benefits and best use of cannabis as a treatment.”
The acquisition includes five new medical centers along with a proprietary telemedicine platform that provides important education, access and expertise for referring patients in the use of cannabis for medical purposes. The Clarity Medical Centres approach makes it simple for new patients to access legal medical cannabis products in Canada and streamlines the process of registering with a licensed producer.
Under the leadership of Dr. Jean Paul Lim, an internal medicine and complex care specialist, Clarity Medical Centres intend to study and monitor the effects of medicinal cannabis use. Clarity Medical Centres will use a patient-focused, research-based, multidisciplinary approach, from which Dr. Lim hopes to shatter cannabis misconceptions and build scientific evidence through the collection of patient data points around cannabis as an effective treatment.
