dosist™ Canada Announces Exclusive Partnership with Medical Cannabis by Shoppers Inc. for New Dose-Controlled Medical Cannabis Products

dosist™ Canada announced a new exclusive partnership with Medical Cannabis by Shoppers Inc. to supply its innovative dose-controlled cannabis products as part of the Medical Cannabis by Shoppers™ offering.

Shoppers will now offer patients eight dosist product formulations, which include core formulas such as calm, rest, and soothe, all of which deliver a precise balance of THC:CBD to provide targeted results, as well as three new high potency THC-plus formulas. These formulas are administered via dosist’s proprietary inhalable devices, providing patients with the first and only precision dosing inhalable products in the Medical Cannabis by Shoppers offering.

Since launching in 2016, dosist has become a globally recognized brand through its award-winning products, focus on testing and quality, and recognition from companies like Time and Fast Company. As the pioneer of dose-controlled cannabis technology and a leader in quality of life need-state formulations, dosist has consistently established itself as one of the top selling brands in its category in the largest legal US cannabis market (California).

“We are extremely proud to partner with such a trusted and respected retailer as Shoppers Drug Mart,” said Gunner Winston, CEO of dosist. “Their integrity and history in providing for the medical needs of Canadians is unparalleled, and reflects very strongly our shared commitment to enabling and empowering Canadians to live better. We look forward to bringing our proprietary dose controlled products and natural formulas to Shoppers patients across the country.”

Consistent with Shoppers’ commitment to providing full product transparency, dosist is one of the only brands in Canada that posts all of its formula batch tests online, allowing patients to see that the products they are inhaling are natural and contaminant free. dosist has also partnered with Shoppers and UHN on the Medical Cannabis Real-World Evidence clinical trial, studying the effects of fully validated cannabis product on sleep, anxiety and depression.

“We are proud to be the only national brand to make dosist products available to Canadians who consume cannabis for medical and wellness reasons,” said Ken Weisbrod, Vice President, Business Development/Cannabis Strategy, Shoppers Drug Mart. “We are pleased to bring this innovative and measured platform for cannabis use to our consumers today.”

All dosist formulas are administered via their proprietary dose-controlled inhalable technology, which includes the new dose pen rechargeable system by dosist, an exclusive closed-loop dose pen system created by combining the dose controller and formula pods (both sold separately) for a rechargeable and flexible experience, and the dose pen 100, a sleek and convenient disposable device. Both inhalable devices deliver a precise 2.5 mg dose of formula each time, alerting the patient of a complete dose with a haptic vibration before shutting off.

The five dosist core formulas now available at shoppersdrugmart.ca/cannabis are:

  • calm (1:6 thc-to-cbd ratio) – designed to help relax your mind and body
  • soothe (2:1 thc-to-cbd ratio) – designed to help ease the mind and body
  • rest (8:1 thc-to-cbd radio) – designed to help you feel rested
  • bliss (9:1 thc-to-cbd ratio) – designed to help you feel just the right amount of good
  • arouse (10:1 thc-to-cbd ratio) – designed to help awaken your senses and stimulate your mind

The three THC-plus formulas now available are:

  • bliss thc-plus – an invigorating blend of high-potency cannabis designed to deliver feelings of euphoria and energy
  • arouse thc-plus – a balanced blend of high-potency cannabis designed to deliver feelings of stimulation and clarity
