Australis Capital Inc. (CSE: AUSA) (OTC: AUSAF) — doing business as Audacious — says it’s partnered with Golden Triangle Health to open the first cannabis clinic in Thailand supported by an American operator.

Herbidus Medical Center opened its doors March 7 in Sukhumvit 13, Bangkok. The clinic has already seen close to 800 patients, according to Audacious.

Herbidus is among the first legal clinics to prescribe cannabis for government-approved treatment. Audacious will support the clinic with its expertise as well as white-label capabilities for product manufacturing.

Golden Triangle is owned by the Thai food manufacturer NR Instant Produce PCL, with a market cap close to $400 million.

“We believe that together, we can be one of the most important players in the Asian cannabis market, following our joint launch in the Asian CBD market earlier this year,” Golden Triangle co-founder Tom Kruesopon said in a statement.

Audacious CEO Terry Booth says interest in medical cannabis is rising in Thailand, and his firm is looking forward to bringing cannabis expertise and leadership to the market.

“This is one of several initiatives that we are embarking on with Golden Triangle Health, which along with its parent company enjoys robust distribution channels across Thailand, as well as nimble and powerful white-label capabilities for cannabis product manufacturing,” he says.

Golden Health Triangle will receive support from Audacious chief science officer Jason Dyck, who is also a Canada Research Chair.

“This will leverage the years of research we have performed in Canada and other countries, including Dr. Dyck’s studies on one of the world’s largest databases of medical cannabis users to identify the primary reasons for medical cannabis authorization and the health outcomes of these patients,” Booth continues.
