Being able to compare strains of medical marijuana requires a standard measure. This is the Green Trials Efficacy score (GTE score)
From each medical marijuana strain a single GTE score is produced, which summarizes both the clinical efficacy (i.e. how well it works) as well as how many side-effects occur and their severity.
- The range of possible GTE scores is from 0-100.
- The score reflects 7 different factors (link to GTE calculation tab).
- Higher scores are better, with the highest scores representing the greatest clinical impact with a lower risk of side-effects.
The GTE score uses the benefits of Standardization (link to appropriate tab) across clinical studies with medical marijuana. It allows results from one group of subjects to be directly compared to others, allowing greater clarity.
