Go Fund Me Launched for Cannabis App

A Go Fund Me campaign has been launched for MyCannaWorks, a cloud-hosted, web-based, mobile app designed to collect data on individual patient cannabis use, provide feedback to patients on quality of life parameters and establish a network between patients, doctors and providers. The app, which will serve as a portal to connect patients, medical practitioners and caregivers, will enable timely communication and feedback on medical cannabis and optimization of products and dosage in specific medical conditions.

        “One of the greatest barriers to the use of medical cannabis is the lack of rigorous clinical studies to define treatment parameters for cannabinoids in different medical conditions,” says MyCannaWorks app creator Bert Telles, president of Allegiance Wellness Center, who has been working with medical cannabis patients for over six years. “Our goal is to compile data directly from medical cannabis patients on their usage and outcomes related to their medical condition. While this format is not as rigorous as a clinical trial funded by the National Institutes of Health, it will capture valuable and vetted information on the use of MC in different diseases and the information collected will be analyzed to provide an evidence-based framework for the use of MC in medicine.”

        The information collected from MyCannaWorks will be compiled to share with patients, practitioners, caretakers, support groups and the general public.
