Frequently Asked Questions
» Why was BudGenius® created?
BudGenius® was created out of necessity to bring safety and quality assurances to the medical cannabis community. You wouldn't find individuals with a stuffy nose headed to their local pharmacy to buy cold medicine that was mixed and manufactured in a neighbor's basement. Yet literally, this is the current approach within the medicinal cannabis industry. BudGenius® insures that medicine provided to patients is now free of pathogens and fit for safe consumption.
» How does BudGenius® help me choose the right medicine?
Cannabis is an extraordinary medicine with a variety of benefits determined by each plant’s genetic qualities. In our surveys of patients and doctors it became clear that rows of humorously named strains in a dispensary wasn't effective in treating patient ailments. For example, over-the-counter sinus medications found within pharmacies each represent a combination of 5 basic active ingredients. This in itself can be a confusing purchase between drowsy, non-drowsy, daytime, nighttime, cough, flu, and a variety of marketing terms. Compare this to medicinal cannabis, which is composed of over 60 unique «cannabinoids» in varying strengths that each address specific ailments and produce distinct effects upon consumption. BudGenius® cuts through the confusion and introduces an industry standard to insure patients are being matched to the correct medicine for their specific ailments.
