RYAH Medtech, Inc. (“RYAH” or the “Company”), a big data and technology company focused on valuable predictive analysis in the global medical plant intake industry, released a data analytics report on chronic pain and cannabis. The data, taken from RYAH’s propriety data pool, and related insights, examine medical cannabis pain patient demographics and how different types of chronic pain respond to different strains of medical cannabis.
“Pain is a top concern for medical cannabis patients visiting physicians and dispensaries and we hope that this report will help inform the public on how some patients are personalizing their cannabis treatments to achieve better outcomes. As a company rooted in big data and predictive analysis, RYAH is uniquely positioned to use our artificial intelligence platform to provide insights on the complete medical plant life cycle from seed to consumption,” said Gregory Wagner, Chief Executive Officer of RYAH.
The report found that pain is the 4th most popular reason medical cannabis patients seek treatment, with slightly more men than women treating their pain with cannabis. Both groups of patients experienced comorbidities including anxiety, depression, stress, insomnia and mood swings.
In terms of strain preference, patients rated Indica and Indica dominant hybrids as providing the most symptom relief. Examples of some of these Indica dominant strains include Blueberry Diesel, Mango, and LA Confidential. Patients also preferred strains with percentages of THC above 15%, considered to be a relatively high concentration of THC. One of the more unexpected findings was that CBD content did not seem to play a major role in terms of symptom relief.
