Canadian Cannabis Clinics (CCC), a new medical clinic focusing on medical marijuana as a treatment option, will open in St. Catharines on September 16, 2014 and will be the first of its kind to operate with zero patient fees.
St. Catharines was selected as the site for CCC’s first location because it is a hub for the Niagara region. CCC has plans to open 10 more clinics across Canada in the next 12 months.
Canadian Cannabis Clinics has also partnered with Canada’s leading medical marijuana resource and counselling service, CanvasRx, to educate and inform patients about medical cannabis options. Selecting strains best suited for a patient’s needs, and completing the paperwork necessary to register with one of Canada’s licensed medical marijuana producers can be complex, so CanvasRx provides free, in-person consultations, and an easy-to-use website to help patients through all stages of the process.
“Our mission at Canadian Cannabis Clinics is to help Canadians get the best medical care available,” says Dr. Barry Waisglass, the first practicing doctor at CCC’s St. Catharines location, “and by removing the costs associated with accessing medical cannabis, and providing the counselling services through CanvasRx, we believe we can deliver on that promise.”
