The BudGenius Marijuana Testing Philosophy
Marijuana comes in many different flavors
Each strain has a unique genetic potential. The grower's expertise determines how close to the plant comes to reaching that potential. Every harvest is often slightly different due to subtle changes in the environment
There are 100+ chemicals It's not just about THC
Marijuana is a mix of many different compounds. Most of them fall into three categories: cannabinoids, terpenoids, and flavanoids. Each of these compounds can significantly modify the therapeutic benefits of the plant. There are hundreds of different chemical combinations each producing a different effect. Some of these effects and interactions still have yet to be discovered!
It could take decades to figure all this out
Traditional medical research is often performed by isolating unknown compounds and then figuring out what their individual effects are. However many of the compounds in marijuana work best when they *interact* with each other. Considering the multitude of compounds within marijuana, this presents a very complex puzzle that could take decades to unravel by following a traditional research path.
The result is BudGenius™ - an artificially intelligent "brain" that learns more about marijuana every day.
Each time a new scientific trial is released about medical marijuana, BudGenius™ gets smarter. Each time a patient submits a marijuana review, BudGenius™ gets smarter. Thanks to you, we've developed a unique medical marijuana rating system that can calculate more efficient strains for pain relief, sleep aids, and other effects. With your continued help, in the next year we plan to be calculating which strains are more efficient at treating critical illnesses such as cancer, Parkinson's disease, and Alzheimer's.
Medical marijuana is just the beginning. We're already researching the benefits of harnessing the power of home diagnostic machines, and then combining this with cloud-based applications connected to BudGenius™ servers. Could BudGenius™ evolve to become the Google of the human body by discovering digital "wellness patterns" in everything from the food we eat, to the environments we live in? In time, yes, we believe so.
