Based in northwest Calgary, Harvest Medicine is a leading medical marijuana clinic with a unique focus on patient education. Rather than just focusing on one portion of a patient's health, Harvest Medicine takes a different approach which they refer to as "360-degree patient wellness," covering all aspects of a patient's well being.

Using Strainprint's mobile app, Harvest Medicine's 5,000+ medical marijuana patients will begin logging their marijuana usage and consumption data to better determine which cannabis strains are working for their symptoms, and which ones are not. Strainprint's individualized and aggregated data will allow Harvest Medicine to help any given patient find a better strain or better consumption method for their ailments. According to the release, "each clinic visit patients share their detailed outcomes reports with their doctor and together determine optimal treatment for overall wellness."
This means that if you were using Bubba Kush for your depression but noticed lackluster results, that you may be recommended to try a strain like Girl Scout Cookies instead. Surely, this is just an example, but Bubba Kush is widely regarded as a great strain for its analgesic effects whereas Girl Scout Cookies is known for its uplifting and de-stressing properties. A new cannabis patient wouldn't know this, but that's not their fault. By leveraging Strainprint's data and focusing on patient education, Harvest Medicine will improve the overall efficacy of medical marijuana treatment for its patients.

(TSXV:EMC) to launch a first-ever custom app platform for the thousands of patients that Emblem serves.
