TESTING FOR PRECISION PRESCRIBING
Different strains of cannabinoids and terpenes are effective at treating different conditions. A cannabis product that is optimal for one individual may not be suitable for another person because of variables including genetics, individual medical conditions and drug-drug interactions.
Reducing trial and error side effects from the use and prescribing of cannabis can occur by knowing your drug metabolism tendencies toward THC and CBD. Completing such a pharmacogenetics test will not only provide you and your prescriber this valuable knowledge but also inform you as to how cannabis will interact with other drugs that you consume, including alcohol and caffeine. Genetic testing, done with a simple cheek swab, can also offer insights about cannabis efficacy toward certain health conditions.
