(“Namaste” or the “Company”) (CSE:N)(FRANKFURT:M5BQ)(OTCMKTS:NXTTF) is pleased to provide an update on progress with its wholly owned subsidiary, Cannmart Inc. (“CannMart”). Management is excited to announce that the updated Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (“ACMPR”) application has been submitted to Health Canada, the CannMart facility is now under construction and the Company expects a six to eight-week time-frame for completion, pending any delays. Namaste’s design goals for the CannMart facility will facilitate the seamless distribution of a wide variety of medicinal cannabis products, which have been sourced both domestically and internationally. Namaste believes that once construction is complete, this state of the art facility will serve as the backbone in servicing Namaste’s impressive and growing database of Canadian medical cannabis consumers.
Further to Namaste’s press release dated November 14, 2017, the application for NamasteMD, the Company’s innovative telemedicine smart-phone app, has been submitted to both the Apple Store and Google for approval, and will available on both IOS and Android devices once approval is received. Additionally, Namaste is pleased to announce that it has engaged multiple doctors and nurse practitioners who will be trained to provide consultations on the NamasteMD app and issue medical documents to Namaste’s patients. NamasteMD has been designed to provide a simple process for patients to connect with a doctor or nurse practitioner through a virtual consultation from the comfort of their home or office. NamasteMD incorporates proprietary identity and age verification technology that will provide high confidence verification for all patients. Patients who complete their consultation and receive a medical document through NamasteMD may then connect to CannMart’s online portal where they can purchase a wide range of medicinal cannabis products. By utilizing Namaste’s innovative technology of machine-learning algorithms and integrating CannMart on the NamasteMD platform, Namaste strongly believes that it will soon become Canada’s leading online retailer for medicinal cannabis.
Sean Dollinger, President and CEO of Namaste comments: “These are extremely exciting times for Namaste as we move forward and implement many new and innovative initiatives. We are very excited about the progress of both CannMart and NamasteMD and believe the next few months will be transformational for the Company.
