The rapid expansion of clinics is helping Khiron reach more patients in more places, more conveniently, in these cities. With the opening of two new satellite clinics in Cali and Bucaramanga, Khiron has taken another step toward increasing patient access to medical cannabis, with the objective of improving the quality of life for thousands of people in Colombia.
