Currently there are no standards to compare different strains of medical marijuana.
This makes it hard for both consumers, and for medical professionals, to identify which strain may be best for a particular individual.
The Green Trials approach is different.
- All subjects complete the same standard scales and have scores recorded in the same manner.
- All subjects also have the same rigorous assessment, including physical examination, electrocardiogram (ECG), and cognitive testing which also assesses impact on ability to drive using well tested technology.
- All side-effects are captured and reported in a standardized manner
- Any changes in symptoms are recorded weekly for at least 4 weeks, and sometimes much longer
This standardization approach allows comparisons between strains.
