VANCOUVER, May 16, 2017 /CNW/ – Leo Resources Inc.

(“PAP“) which is a marketing technology company used to verify, sort, and compile possible ACMPR patients.
PAP works by sorting/recording patient’s identification and contact information after verifying an opt-in process, allowing for a gateway between health service providers and possible ACMPR patients. PAP has proprietary software which is used to store, transmit, and sort data of incoming patients based on location, ailment, and preferred contact method.
PAP is current placed in areas of high interest to cannabis users and people with health ailments that match Health Canada’s ailment list for ACMPR patients. PAP looks to further expand its patient outreach by adding a variety of health clinics, as patient outreach hubs such as physiotherapist, massage clinics, and pharmacies. Currently PAP is in multiple locations across Canada. Each locations generates approximately 80 leads per day. It is expected once the PAP is installed in target locations it will produce up to 3,000 ACMPR leads per day or 90,000 per month.
PAP’s model is highly adaptable and scalable to be built around legislative framework, allowing for possible lead generation of the recreational market. PAP could be placed in a wide variety of areas of high foot traffic not directly affiliated with cannabis.
GLC is incorporated under the laws of the Province of British Columbia which has entered into an LOI to acquire a private company which operates clinics and pavilions in the western provinces. GLC gathers information/leads by placing interactive lead generation pavilions in areas of high interest to cannabis users and health related clinics/offices. GLC then takes these interested parties to its affiliate clinic network assisting the parties in navigating through and accessing Canada’s legal medical marijuana program by assisting in determining eligibility, completing medical forms, providing physician consultations and referring parties to appropriate licensed producers. GLC currently has 6 Clinics in its corporate network.
GLC is a business built around today’s quickly changing legislative framework. It allows for the retention of not only medical users but also the recreational user base, when available, with its lead generation tools. It will allow for strong patients and consumer outreach to all consumers of cannabis making it appealing to future partners and licensed producers.
