Mobile Cannabis Clinic Gears Up to Take to the Road in Canada

Tilray sponsors one-of-a-kind project to educate Canadian patients about medical cannabis

NANAIMO, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - May 18, 2016) - Tilray, one of Canada's largest federally-licensed producers of medical cannabis, is proud to announce the Mobile Cannabis Clinic -- a first-of-its-kind road tour with a mission to offer Canadians increased access to local physicians knowledgeable about medical cannabis.

"Educating patients about medical cannabis and how they can access it is an important priority for Tilray," says Philippe Lucas, Vice President of Patient Research and Advocacy. "The Mobile Cannabis Clinic will allow us to share this important information with Canadians in various cities across the country and help connect patients with physicians who can address their questions."

While visiting the Mobile Cannabis Clinic, prospective patients will be able to discuss whether medical cannabis therapy is appropriate for them. Approved patients will receive a medical document enabling them to legally order medical cannabis for delivery to their home under a physician's supervision.

The Mobile Cannabis Clinic will start its cross-country circuit from Tilray's home city of Nanaimo, British Columbia on June 6th, 2016 and will be stopping at the following destinations:

  • In British Columbia: Nanaimo, Victoria, Vancouver, Burnaby, Richmond, Surrey, Coquitlam, Abbotsford, Kamloops, Kelowna

  • In Alberta: Lethbridge, Calgary, Red Deer, Edmonton

  • In Manitoba: Brandon, Winnipeg

  • In Ontario: Thunder Bay, Sault Ste. Marie, Sudbury, Barrie, Markham, Vaughan, Brampton, Guelph, Kitchener, London, Windsor, Hamilton, Burlington, Mississauga, Toronto, Oshawa, Peterborough, Kingston, Ottawa

A full schedule of stops and events can be found at https://www.tilray.ca/en/mobile-cannabis-clinic/.

  • Assess if individuals are suitable candidates for medical cannabis authorization

  • Authorize medical cannabis for those deemed qualified

  • Answer questions about medical cannabis and how it can be legally accessed in Canada
