LYTE Clinics Expands Patient Access Through Partnership With Medical Cannabis by Shoppers

LYTE Clinics announced their new partnership with Medical Cannabis by Shoppers, further strengthening their commitment to timely, reliable access to medical cannabis for Canadians. Medical Cannabis by Shoppers is Shoppers Drug Mart’s online platform for the sale of medical cannabis.

Effective immediately, LYTE clinic patients can enjoy convenient nationwide access to a best in category selection of Medical Cannabis, and access to products from 19 brands and counting. The Shoppers Cannabis Care team – a dedicated call center staffed by cannabis-trained advisors and pharmacists – provides counselling and support for patients.

LYTE is unique amongst cannabis clinics as the process of scheduling an appointment with a doctor, registering with a medical provider, and placing an order is all done online in a matter of minutes, using state-of-art tele-health software, with the benefit of minimizing wait time.

“Lyte Clinic takes pride in offering our patients convenience, experience, education and privacy—and those values are very much aligned with the practices of Medical Cannabis by Shoppers: We share a core belief that access to cannabis requires continuity of care,” noted Ali Mohamad, President & CEO of Lyte Clinics. “Cannabis is medicine for hundreds of thousands of Canadians, and our partnership with Medical Cannabis by Shoppers will offer LYTE patients seamless, convenient access to trusted education, and a variety of cannabis medication.”

Lyte Clinic founded in 2016 is one of Canada’s leading virtual cannabis clinics. With its cutting edge platform, Lyte is able to see patients across 9 provinces. Covered under the Ontario Health Insurance Plan(OHIP), this gives Lyte the ability to allow patients access to medical cannabis completely free of charge to see a doctor. Having helped over 7000 patients to date, Lyte has become the choice clinic for many Licensed Producers to send both their staff and their patients to with the utmost confidence. Lyte Clinic sees patients from the most remote places in Canada through their virtual clinic platforms. This allows them to become a leader in connecting rural parts of Canada to doctors and helping them gain access to medical cannabis when no other options are available.
