Sativa Wellness Group Inc (LON:SWEL) said it has expanded its coronavirus (COVID-19) testing service to the Goodbody Wellness store in Bristol following a “significant success” of the service at its store in Bath.
The Aquis-listed cannabidiol (CBD) firm’s in-store clinic provides testing for people not presenting symptoms who require negative tests for travel, work, or peace of mind.
Sativa originally launched the testing service in November and offers polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing for travel and work, antigen testing providing results in 15 minutes as well as antibody testing for those who want to find out if they have had COVID-19.
"We are seeing a very strong demand for the new clinic's testing capabilities. As the holidays approach, university students depart and people travel abroad to go home or visit relatives, the demand for safe travel is escalating rapidly”, Sativa chief executive Henry Lees-Buckley said in a statement.
“Our Goodbody Wellness stores and clinics help people at this challenging time. We will continue to look for more opportunities to expand this service", he added.
Shares in Sativa were trading at around 4.2p on the Acquis exchange at mid-morning on Tuesday.
