Feb. 9, 2021

Telehealth alliance with HelloMD increases patient access to cannabinoid formulations, providing quick and convenient access to consultations with licensed healthcare practitioners.

SASKATOON, Saskatchewan--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ZYUS Life Sciences Inc. ("ZYUS"), a Canadian life sciences company leading scientific research and development in phyto-therapeutics, announced today that it has partnered with recognized telehealth provider, HelloMD, to help prospective patients access independent medical advice. This is an important step to providing Canadians access to ZYUS’ first generation cannabinoid-based formulations. Patients can schedule a free online consultation with a HelloMD licensed healthcare practitioner (HCP) by visiting www.zyus.ca.

A Commitment to Good Health

HelloMD is a leading virtual healthcare platform for medical services in Canada, offering patients confidential medical advice from registered HCPs through a video-enabled computer or smartphone. The free service is available in English and French, with consultations lasting up to 30 minutes. Patients can speak to HelloMD’s HCPs about their medical history, be educated, and authorized to purchase medical cannabinoid formulations, if the HelloMD’s HPC determines it is the right approach for the individual.

“We are proud to launch this strategic relationship with HelloMD to continue to offer the highest standard of compassionate care to patients and to increase access to healthcare practitioners that are educated about cannabinoid-based formulations and the transformational impact they can have on patient outcomes,” said Brent Zettl, ZYUS CEO. “In our current climate, Canadians need to be cautious about leaving their homes, but that doesn’t mean they have to compromise on living life with difficult symptoms, such as chronic pain. We are excited to increase patient access through telehealth and to welcome prospective patients to ZYUS.”

“HelloMD’s unique platform has helped over thousands of patients gain access to qualified and educated medical advice, from the comfort of their own homes, to determine whether cannabinoids may an option for them,” said Larry Lisser, Chief Executive Officer of HelloMD. “With ZYUS’ team’s strong reputation in the industry and their recent launch direct to patient sales in Canada, this alliance offers the ideal opportunity to introduce more qualified patients to the benefits of medical cannabis.”

Supporting Patients from Coast-to-Coast

ZYUS’ alliance with HelloMD is just one of the many steps the company has taken over the past two years to help improve patient outcomes.
