DENVER, Jan. 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of its ongoing commitment to advancing the scientific research and development of medicinal cannabis, Mary's Medicinals today announced the release of Mary's Journal, the first mobile app designed to help patients track and balance their use of cannabis medicine while simultaneously contributing valuable data to research efforts.
Mary's Journal is designed to help patients monitor their medicinal cannabis use, while gathering anonymized data on use preferences, patterns and results. The information that patients contribute will be paramount in Mary's quest to validate the efficacy of cannabis, leading to clinical trials and research that will help thousands of patients more successfully battle ailments including PTSD, Depression, Cancer and Epilepsy.
Mary's Journal compiles data including medical conditions, treatments (including all types of cannabis and non-cannabis medicines) symptoms, dosing and other preferences -- then checks in with users regarding current symptoms and medication at certain points throughout the day. With planned upgrades, users will ultimately be able to learn more about how their symptoms change based on different dosing strategies and track additional health details.
Nicole Smith, CEO, Mary's Medicinals, said: "Most of the knowledge about cannabis medicine that is available today is based on what we have learned directly from patients. Mary's Journal now enables patients to share information with each other and with researchers on a global scale, which will lead to clinical studies, improved protocols for canna-based medicinal use and the creation of innovative, effective products. Introducing this app is part of Mary's ongoing commitment to supporting patients everywhere and advancing the science around cannabis."
