Gynica, Lumir Lab, and Canadian startup Strainprint have announced a partnership to develop the world’s first and largest database of the effects of cannabis on women, starting with a focus on endometriosis symptoms. Gynica is currently running a preclinical trial to identify the most effective cannabinoid formulation for endometriosis patients. Using Strainprint’s proprietary digital research platform with an outcomes-tracking mobile application for gathering data from patients in real time, the trial involves jointly recruiting patients in Israel and Canada to gather, store, and monitor patient data. The quantitative web-based analytics platform enables medical cannabis industry participants to mine the anonymous data in real time and utilize an online community platform for recruiting research participants and driving custom surveys and questionnaires. With Lumir Lab’s clinical investigative expertise and Strainprint’s social-technological solutions, Gynica has the tools to construct groundbreaking/pioneering treatments for the real needs of women worldwide.
