Guiding patients through a streamlined process for access to medicinal cannabis.
To be Canada's largest and most trusted cannabis clinic in providing patient education, advocacy and support.
Our focus is customer care through innovation, knowledge and advocacy.
Compass Cannabis Clinic is committed to supporting individuals as they explore alternative medicinal remedies.
Our core philosophy is one of advocacy for patients who are looking to learn more about the marijuana industry and the variety in products that it affords.
We also offer diversity to those who are interested in investing in the industry as we are currently raising capital to be publicly traded.
We currently have multiple Compass locations that are already in operation and others that are still being constructed across Canada.
We connect patients with Licensed Producers to get the best quality cannabis for medicinal purposes. Through Compass, patients gain access to Health Canada Licensed Producers to purchase fresh cannabis for medicinal purposes.
