Leading virtual care provider Lyte Clinic partners with Medical Cannabis by Shoppers and the University Health Network in groundbreaking clinical study
ONE OF CANADA’S leading virtual medical clinics, Lyte Clinic, has announced it is joining with University Health Network and Medical Cannabis by Shoppers to conduct a first-of-its-kind real world evidence study involving medical cannabis.
The Medical Cannabis Real-World Evidence (MC-RWE) clinical trial will allow patients to select medical cannabis products that are tested, from seed straight through to packaging. Patients using the online portal created by Medical Cannabis by Shoppers will know exactly what is in their product ― how many milligrams of THC and cannabidiol are being consumed and if it works for them. They can also rely on the product being precisely the same from batch to batch.
Patients in the MC-RWE clinical trial will have access to a wide range of products through the portal, including dried flower, oil extracts, edibles and topical preparations. The portal is the online platform for the sale of medical cannabis by Canadian retail pharmacy chain, Shoppers Drug Mart.
Lyte Clinic’s practitioners will assist patients in enrolling in the study, as well as offering support and medical advice to participants so that they can select the best products for their medical cannabis therapy.
Lyte Clinic is unique among cannabis clinics, facilitating the process of scheduling an appointment with a doctor, registering with a medical provider and placing an order ― all done online in a matter of minutes, using state-of-art telehealth software, with the benefit of minimizing wait time.
“Lyte’s robust telemedicine platform will connect Canada’s largest pharmacy network, Shoppers Drug Mart, with Canada’s largest and most prestigious research institution, University Health Network, to enable this groundbreaking clinical study in medical cannabis,” states Dr. Dean Elterman of University Health Network.
“Patients and practitioners need rigorously tested, genetically verified, fully tracked medical cannabis options,” adds Ali Mohamed, president & CEO of LYTE Clinic. “The information gathered in the Medical Cannabis Real-World Evidence Study is critical to helping new patients find the type of cannabis that is proven to be best for their symptoms, which will lead to a better quality of life for thousands of Canadians.”
