On Monday, the Toronto-headquarter cannabis operator with primary operations in Colombia announced the inauguration of its Ipanema, Rio de Janeiro clinic with a capacity of 23,000 patient consultations per year.

The clinic will have 13 doctors for in-person and telehealth consultations that will prescribe cannabinoid-based medications to treat chronic pain, neurological, dermatological and other pathologies.

The clinic’s operations will be supported by strategic partnerships with doctors and patient associations including CANNAB in Salvador de Bahia and leading medical distributors as TAIMIN in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo.
