Vancouver, B.C. - Oct. 19, 2017 --/ D.M.O. Newswire /-- Canabo Medical Inc. (TSXV:CMM) (OTC:CAMDF) (“Canabo” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has launched its Self-Referral Sleep Aid program, a first of its kind in Canada. Patients with sleep issues are now welcome to book a medical clinic appointment directly with no prior requirement for a physician’s referral.
Dr. Michael Verbora, Medical Director of Canabo, commented: “Insomnia is a condition that affects millions of Canadians. We know that poor sleep habits and non-restorative sleep contributes to worsening physical and mental health. Many Canadians struggle to find options that can provide relief with tolerable side effects, which are drawbacks of many pharmaceutical sleep options. Canabo has identified specific cannabis strains that are very effective in treating insomnia with minimal side effects. We have developed a sleep protocol to identify patients whom are best suited for our self-referral program. Patients with sleep issues can now complete this process using an on-line self-referral form (CMClinic.ca).”
The Canadian Sleep Society (CSS) and the Canadian Sleep and Circadian Network (CSCN) reported; “over 25% of Canadians suffer from sleep disorders, a percentage that increases with aging.”
John Philpott, CEO of Canabo, commented: “We are delighted to expand this much needed service to millions of Canadians. As Canabo now operates 19 clinics across the country we feel that this self referral initiative will provide much needed assistance to many Canadians that suffer from sleep disorders. We have protocols and methodologies in place to ensure smooth processing for Sleep Aid patients, who can now quickly book an appointment by calling 1-888-282-7763 or by completing our user-friendly on-line self-referral system.”
