“We continue to find innovative ways to expand our network and build the world’s most customer focused cannabis marketplace,” said Meni Morim, Interim CEO at Namaste Technologies. “We’re leveraging in-house developed technology, like NamasteMD, to support tools like ARBR. This relationship opens a new channel to medical cannabis patients and allows the adult-use cannabis consumer to utilize their existing pharmacy relationships.”
