Stored inside your personal DNA is knowledge that will have a profound effect on your health!

YOUR PAIN MANAGEMENT SOLUTION

Discover the alternatives of switching from opioid anti-inflammatory medications to cannabis to better manage and control pain

YOUR SLEEP DISORDER SOLUTION

Assess your risk for certain sleep disorders and understand how to best use cannabis for more restful sleep without common side effects

YOUR ANXIETY/STRESS SOLUTION

Identify the genetic benefit of using cannabis to reduce anxiety and stress, including that which stems from past traumatic events

CannaGx provides a general understanding on how your body processes cannabis once it enters your system, as well as the metabolism of endocannabioids (your body’s natural neural messengers). This is key in resolving several health matters, without experiencing uncomfortable side effects that may accompany the use of dangerous pain management medications.

Your personal report will direct you on how to:

  • Recognize treatments that will provide results utilizing the benefits found in cannabinoids and other non-psychoactive cannabis products
  • Assess your risk for certain sleep disorders and how to best combine safer alternatives found in cannabis
  • Manage anxiety and avoid developing paranoia
  • Avoid interactions with medications and herbal supplements

OUR SCIENTIFIC TEAM EXPLAINS IN DETAIL - CannaGx

No cannabis product affects two people in the same way. Is that what led to the concept of CannaGx?
It is true that cannabis affects people differently, and a person's genetics are the primary reason behind that.  That was one of the main reasons why we created the CannaGx test.  Another factor behind the test's conception is the fact that many people are using cannabis incorrectly to treat medical conditions.  Guidance behind which product to use is subjective and mostly anecdotal, coming from a wide array of unverified sources.  We wanted to provide objective guidance based on years of clinical research.  Guidance that actually makes a difference and allows a person to avoid trial-and-error approaches to cannabis use.  Today, with so many people on prescription medications, such as opiates, we knew we needed to get this right and provide something useful, to help people transition away from these traditional therapies.  In many ways, we are attempting to curb not only the opioid crisis in America, but the impending anti-depressant, anti-anxiety, sleep-aid or any "big Pharma" crises that are right around the corner.
Tell us about the pathways into the endocannabinoid system.
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is an endogenous system within living organisms that is comprised of various receptors, receptor activators (ligands), and various enzymes.  These receptors respond to internal as well as external activation by various cannabinoid molecules.  The CB1 and CB2 receptors, encoded by the genes CNR1 (6q14-q15) and CNR2 (1p35-p36.1), respectively.  The key components of the ECS can be found within almost every major system of the body, including the brain, gastrointestinal system, muscle, and other tissues.  In addition to the interplay between cannabinoid receptors, terpenes and their receptors/enzymes, these endocannabinoids have been shown to have medicinal effects on the body, maintaining homeostasis.  We have identified several receptors/enzymes involved either directly or indirectly in cannabinoid and terpene pathways, and suspect that hundreds more are also involved.
Do you think CannaGx can help ease qualms of those who are unsure about medical cannabis?
Yes, some of the groups of people that utilize this test are those who have never used cannabis before, or those who do not have years of experience to fall back on.  Again, we are providing individualized recommendations for each and every person who takes the test, and directing them towards very specific products so they can avoid unnecessary side effects.  Our goal is for people to take the right product, the first time.  Cannabis has proven to be a useful and safe treatment for so many disorders, and it can be confusing and intimidating for people newly exposed to it.
Will this lead to a better knowledge of drug interactions?
Our research has expanded the field of cannabis use from a medical perspective.  As we continue to research it, we are finding that there are some cannabis-prescription interactions that are worth noting (we provide information like this in our customized report).  Our test provides insight into 40 plus genetic markers of each person, helping to provide an easy to read guide to focus on the benefits of cannabis products and be aware of the hazards.  In addition to those interactions, we are also diving more deeply into the standard prescription drug-drug interactions and a science called pharmacogenetics (PGx), which is the study of how the body metabolizes various drugs.  Our research team actually has over 30 combined years of experience in this specific field.  PGx is the basis behind naming our test CannaGx, because our test is a direct extension of that science, but specifically geared towards cannabis, so we thought the name was well suited.

There is no other test, anywhere, analyzing the personal characteristics stored in your DNA and how you will then respond to compounds residing in cannabis, which has been found to have a measurable therapeutic influence on your health.

As complex as the science is behind our CannaGx Test, the miracle is that it’s been discovered, providing a pathway to better health without fear and side effects associated with supplements, incorrect strains and dosages, and prescription medications.
