Namaste Technologies Inc. has signed a veteran patient services agreement and a medical cannabis supply agreement with Breton CannaPharms Ltd. Breton CannaPharms has a strong presence in veteran communities across Canada and extensive experience in holistically servicing veterans and educating communities on the positive and misunderstood effects of medical cannabis to treat veterans suffering from both chronic pain and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a press statement said.

Namaste is focused on supporting various initiatives surrounding veteran communities and on providing free access to its online patient platform, NamasteMD Inc.

Under the terms of the Patient Services Agreement, Breton Farms will work exclusively with NamasteMD to target patient acquisition within veteran groups across the country. Namaste's partnership with Breton Cannabis will focus on acquiring veteran patients and servicing their needs. NamasteMD provides convenient access to nurse practitioners for medical consultations through online video and is available on the Apple Store, Google Play devices and online at NamasteMD.com, the company said.

Namaste has also signed a supply agreement with Breton Cannabis, whereby the company will purchase bulk cannabis products from Breton CannaPharms to offer on its online platform through the company's wholly owned-subsidiary and ACMPR licensed producer, Cannmart Inc.

Veteran Affairs Canada provides veterans with reimbursements on cannabis for medical purposes, for up to three grams of cannabis per day, under the terms of their reimbursement policy POC-10. Veterans are also entitled to coverage of up to $300 every three years for a medical vaporizer prescribed by their doctor for an awarded pensioned condition. Medical vaporizers are sold and distributed by Namaste. Under the terms of the Patient Services Agreement, Breton CannaPharms management team, who are well versed with Veteran's entitlements and direct-billing coverage, will assist Namaste in the management of its veteran patients to ensure the highest level of care possible.

Through its partnership with Breton CannaPharms, Namaste will focus on building a section on Cannmart to offer specialty products specifically for veteran patients. Namaste will leverage its AI platform through its wholly owned subsidiary, Findify AB to study the effects of various medical cannabis strains and how they impact veterans suffering from pain and PTSD. The goal of the AI integration with Findify is to help provide better strain recommendations based on a patient's specific condition and improve the user experience, the company said.
