Innovation as a driving force for access to medical cannabis? In Brazil, a first subscription service focused on cannabis-based therapies has just been launched.
Managed by Gravital, a clinic specializing in medical cannabis treatments, the Gravital Club aims to facilitate access to this type of care, while offering a wider range of care. The principle of Gravital Club is to promote well-being and to encourage preventive and integrative medicine.
Brazil authorized medical cannabis in 2019, the products of which must for now be imported.
According to Joaquim Castro, founder of Clinica Gravitalthe subscription is an alternative for people looking to improve their quality of life and well-being.
“Our team of doctors has stressed the importance of monitoring patients’ progress more closely. The intention of Gravital Club is to provide its members with increasingly consistent results through cannabis therapy,” he says.
THE Club GravitaIt offers two subscription options: Órbita III and Órbita IV. With these plans, patients can benefit, respectively, from three or four medical consultations per year at the Gravital clinic, carried out in person or by teleconsultation. Both modalities can be scheduled with any doctor in the network and with different professionals, of any specialty available at the clinic.
For face-to-face consultations, Gravital has units in several cities in Brazil: Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Sorocaba, Curitiba, Itajaí, Porto Alegre and Natal.
In both plans, the subscriber receives a 20% discount on additional consultations to those already included, a 15% discount in the Gravital bookstore and also exclusive discounts on the purchase of prescription drugs. Also included is a subscription to Alternnativa magazine, a quarterly publication containing the latest information on advances in medical cannabis.
Founded in Rio de Janeiro in 2019, the Clinica Gravital is the first clinic in Brazil focused on medical cannabis treatments. It currently has seven units in the country. Thanks to a multidisciplinary team, she treats patients suffering from clinical conditions such as insomnia, autoimmune diseases, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, migraine, autism, neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, among others.
