What is the Cannify Tool?

The Cannify tool is intended to educate you about cannabis based on information you provide about your symptoms and characteristics. It works with a three-step process:

  1. Fill in the Cannify questionnaire
  2. Get your results in a personalized report. Your report will be based on the answers you provide in the questionnaire and will contain information about cannabis treatments that scientific studies have demonstrated to have helped people reporting similar symptoms and conditions
  3. Compare your report with and get information about cannabis products offered in your state, if any.

We only rely on scientific proof and data analyses from human studies. There is no other educational cannabis tool that takes human data as serious as we do. We will never compare your body to the body of a lab animal.

 

What can I expect from the questionnaire?

 

We will ask you 20 to 25 questions (the number of questions can vary depending on your answers). The questions ask you about your demographics and health background, your symptoms, your personality traits and your past and potential cannabis experience.

 

What does the report look like?

 

Your report is automatically based on the answers you gave in the questionnaire and contains information about the associated chemistry and active ingredients in cannabis (product), dosages suggested by the studies, the potential effect and strength and the administration forms available. The information in your report is derived from various scientific sources.

 

How independent is the tool?

 

The Cannify tool is independent from any company or other organization. Cannify is free for you to use. We fund Cannify and support our continuing research by selling space on Cannify for product manufacturers to provide you additional information about their products, such as retail locations, product photos, or advertisements. Third party payments to Cannify will never influence the outcome of your results or the ranking or order of the products suggested as a result of your report. Cannify strives to be objective, and to keep business and science strictly separated.  More information about the tool is available in the terms and conditions section of this website.
